Human factors and ergonomics
Nature did not design the human body to sit still for long hours everyday at work stations. We need movement, support and variation to work well. To put it simply, our seating solutions contribute to the well-being of people – and of businesses.
Our chairs are designed to make sure you won’t have to sit still. They are designed with people and their needs in focus and inspire them to beat their best throughout the working day.
HÅG’s ergonomic philosophy is based on an understanding of the human body and its need to be in motion. That’s why the core of our chairs is the unique Balanced Movement Mechanism™ that keeps you in balanced motion and encourages you to move your whole body without even thinking about it.
As balance is the best starting point for movement, our chairs have a centrally placed tilting point to keep you in balance and continuous motion.
The seat and backrest are linked together, which means that the seat front rises when you lean backwards, stimulating movement in the ankles, and lowers when you lean forward to work. These micromovements keep you alert and animated all day long
This unique feature is something we call FootControlledMovement ™.
Our unique seating mechanism keeps the person sitting on a HÅG chair actively balancing and not just in suspended balance.
The chair follows the movement of your body whenever you move forwards and backwards and this,in turn, stimulates micro movements in your feet. This activates the circulation systems in your lower legs - the peripheral heart in the calf muscles - increasing your blood circulation like no other task chair does.
It keeps you feeling energized, fills you with well-being and lets you concentrate on your work.
