Sitting correctly, ergonomically
Ergonomics is the part of occupational science that deals with the adaptation of technology or the working environment to people. The aim of ergonomics is to design the living and working conditions of people, taking into account anatomical, physiological, psychological and physical aspects, in such a way that people's health is maintained during work and thus their Performance is preserved.
Whereas in the past it was assumed that there was THE right sitting posture, today we know that people are born for movement and should ideally never adopt permanent postures. If a person can behave naturally, he or she is constantly moving. That is why active, dynamic sitting is now considered the most natural way to sit and therefore the healthiest. Active-dynamic sitting means changing the sitting position as often as possible to avoid a lack of movement at the workplace.
The new dimension of sitting: 3D ergonomics
Conventional seating concepts - even those that call themselves 'ergonomic' - cannot do much to counteract the lack of movement in the office. On the contrary: they can promote muscle breakdown and incorrect sitting postures. Aeris calls this "the sitting trap" - because there are often only a few working years between the intensive use of conventional office furniture and the first, clear symptoms of illness. Aeris, on the other hand, has completely reinvented sitting at the workplace.
With the unique concept of 3D-ergonomics, we challenge and encourage the intuitive movements of the human being and thus lead the body back to natural, body-appropriate movement patterns.
For such innovations, Aeris invests like no other company in researching movement concepts for active sitting and in developing adequate, easy-to-implement, practical and consumer-relevant solutions. The result: an Aeris office chair has up to 192 components, many patented technologies and usually several awards for innovation, design and function. And most importantly: many satisfied occupants.
Natural movement in three dimensions.
The basic idea of Aeris 3D ergonomics is as simple as it is ingenious: the chair follows the movements of the body and not vice versa. The result: natural sitting, controlled swaying, combined with posture-optimising lateral, forward and backward movements.
1. vertical swing
The vertical oscillations is the unique movement in the third dimension made possible by Aeris' spring-loaded 3D technology. The swinging can be individually adjusted to the respective body weight. It relieves the intervertebral discs, promotes blood circulation, gets the circulation going and ensures an optimal oxygen supply.
2. lateral flexibility
Harmonious 3D movements with wide lateral deflection increase the radius of action and at the same time optimise the natural posture. In addition, they activate the circulation with every change of posture, which not least also increases concentration.
The floor-level 3D joint ensures a natural forward tilt of the chair as soon as the sitter turns towards the desk. The result: the back remains straight, breathing deep and the circulation activated.
The revolution of sitting
Natural movement while sitting is active prevention from Posture and health problems. The office chairs from Aeris that move in three dimensions make this movement possible. Because every Aeris chair with 3D ergonomics demands and promotes intuitive, spontaneous and self-determined movements and thus allows back-friendly, active sitting. A 40-hour sitting week thus becomes - quite incidentally - a 40-hour active week. The effect: more movement, higher performance and active prevention of postural damage.
