It is important that the chair takes your individual anatomy into account and provides sufficient options for alteration and adjustment.
The main options are presented below.
Thanks to the integrated technologies, the 5 series not only responds to every movement on the part of the user, but also adapts to each posture that is assumed over the course of a long day. Because, after all: the best posture is always the next one.
If you’re looking for additional relief for your spine, opt for the BIOSIWNG 560 Detensor. This chair’s special ribbed back further optimises the function of the backrest. And also improves the seat temperature control.
The special shaping of the foam ribs causes the ribs to move upwards when pressure is applied to them by the user’s back. This causes a slight extension of the spine and effectively relieves the spinal discs.
Rigid, motionless sitting is unhealthy. This is the reason why we at BIOSWING break up this rigidity and, thanks to the patented, adaptive 3D movement technology, automatically transform your daily working routine into pleasant, harmonious and effective exercise while you are seated. Automatically and while you focus on something else…
Active movement combined with an upright posture is good for the spinal column. With the individually adjustable seat tilt adjustment, you can adapt the tilt of any model from the 5 series to perfectly suit your needs so that your spine retains its natural S shape thanks to your pelvic alignment.
There are two crucial factors when it comes to keeping your spine healthy and upright in the long term:
1. sufficiently stabilising movement
2. anatomically correct support in passive sitting phases.
A lumbar support with adjustable height and curve can help you with this – which your spinal discs will appreciate.
If your job involves lots of work with a keyboard and mouse, you should make sure that your shoulder muscles are relieved regularly. Individually adjustable armrests can provide valuable support in this respect. The 5 series is available in different versions, which our many ergonomics experts can present to you in some 150 consulting companies in DE, CH and AT.
Spending hours working at a computer causes fatigue. We have to keep our head, weighing roughly five kilos, constantly fixed in one single position, which overstrains our neck muscles and causes painful tension.
Relief is provided by a neck support with 3D adjustment that enables brief intermittent phases of relaxation – allowing you to relax your stressed muscles.
This helps to align the pelvis during long sitting periods and to bring the spine into an upright position, similar to a standing posture. This benefits the spine and spinal discs. This function comes in various versions. Any of our numerous specialists in our roughly 150 consulting offices in DE, CH and AT will gladly provide consultation on this matter. They will also gladly show you the other model series and work with you to find the solution that is perfect for you. On request, we can organise a sample chair for you to test at your personal workplace.

Purchasing a new office chair is an important decision. Because you will generally be using it for many hours every day. If all the time spent sitting in the office is added up, it amounts to roughly 80,000 hours of physical contact with the padding of the chair across an entire working life.
We believe that selecting the right chair brings fundamental advantages for you and we will therefore give you the chance to try out your favoured BIOSWING model thoroughly. To do this, please simply fill out the form.
