Manufacture and made in Germany

Passion for health, ergonomics and people’s well-being.

Moved by the back pain experienced by many people, the company founder Eduard Haider developed and designed the first decoupled and oscillating work chairs at the company site in north-eastern Bavaria in the early 1980s.

He was inspired by the experiments and findings of the American neurologist Dennis McGinty, who was able to prove in 1982 that oscillating movements can promote physical and mental performance.

With the invention of the BIOSWING seating system, he fulfilled his vision of healthy and active sitting and had it patented in 1983.

In close cooperation with higher education institutions, medical specialists and therapists, he refined and optimised his first products to create new product lines and additional areas of application: these innovative and creative achievements were documented in a total of 10 patents.

Outstanding solutions have been created over the past 35 years on the basis of decoupled oscillators, which thousands of physiotherapists now use with their patients in day-to-day practice.

To this day, the company has remained true to his core mission: to develop and manufacture first-class solutions that support human health, performance and well-being. This goal has been internalised by the qualified and motivated team of around 100 employees, who give their all day after day.

The production strategies “made in Germany” and “everything under one roof” have proved to be effective, with all parts of the sitting, training and therapy systems developed at the Pullenreuth plant and produced on-site using high-quality materials. The skilled manufacturing handicraft combined with cutting-edge technology thus creates long-lasting and high-quality products that are used by therapists, health buffs and discerning customers over many years.Our numerous ergonomics experts in some 150 specialist retailers and consulting companies in Germany, Austria and Switzerland ensure that all customers receive the best possible advice and reliable after-sales support.
