BIOSWING – the intelligent, adaptive 3D movement technology

The ground-breaking invention of the BIOSWING oscillating element in the 1980s revolutionised how people sit in the office as well as sensomotor training and the realm of therapy. Where rigid joints between device and floor were previously the norm, there is now a patented, pendulum-like element with precisely defined damping that is able to reflect the body’s rhythmical cycles, continuously and with great effect.

An ingenious way to perfectly harmonise ergonomics, movement and rhythm – with the human body cleverly forming its core.

The adaptive 3D seat mechanism

The adaptive 3D seat mechanism in the BIOSWING system decouples and reflects the movement impulses of the human body as it sits – precisely and consistently.

It has been designed to align with functional anatomy of the human body and the spectrum of movements it performs while sitting, and it thus automatically and harmoniously adjusts to the natural frequencies of 0.8 to 2.7 hertz.

Pendulum principle

While the majority of manufacturers opt for the ball principle (tilting principle), with a design that is easier to implement, BIOSWING technology uses a seat mechanism based on the pendulum principle (see image on right).

It has thus been possible to integrate “intelligent, physically effective movement control” into a chair.

This is because a pendulum works on the principle of harmonious and body-centred swinging movements.

Someone using ball-like or tilting movement solutions in their chair (see image on left) still needs to actively stabilise their body against gravity at all times. This is fully appropriate and useful for therapeutic purposes and for short sessions. Over prolonged periods, however, a movement solution based on the ball or tilting principle causes fatigue and also poses the risk of chronic pelvic misalignment.

A visionary for over 50 years and still passionate about people’s well-being: Eduard Haider

The discoverer and inventor of the BIOSWING idea is full of energy even to this day when it comes to optimising workplaces and therapy facilities. At the Pullenreuth plant in Bavaria, he ensures with great charm and verve that each product is given the time and attention it needs to be perfect – every single day. In this way, each product is given a “soul”, so to speak.
