Sitting in motion on the swoppster permits your child to move its body naturally and intuitively around its own body perpendicular as a quasi-reflexive sensorimotor reaction to the sprung seat. This is just what children who love to move around need. It also prevents dangerous wobbling and tilting.
Just like the swopper for adults, the swoppster, our 3D children's active seat, enables more movement than any other seat. The major advantages of the swoppster at a glance:
The swoppster strengthens your child's back. The 3D active seat for children supports and encourages constant change of posture through its flexibility in sideways movements and vertical bounce. It is designed especially for children from 4 to 12 years old or who weigh from 15 kg to a maximum of 50 kg. It can be adjusted individually in height, spring hardness and sideways movement.
Flexible, adaptable seat which prevents pressure points on the underside of the thighs.
Easy to reach directly under the seat. Each child can set its own favourite sitting position between 32 and 47.5cm.
The vertical movement is the unique movement in the third dimension made possible by the sprung 3D technology from aeris. The vertical movement can be adjusted separately to suit each sitter's weight. This relieves the intervertebral discs, stimulates the blood circulation and thus ensures optimum supply of oxygen to all parts of the body.
Allows movement backwards and forwards and to either side, provides unrestricted flexibility and supports and encourages constant change of posture. Can be adjusted individually for the weight and need to move of each child.
Robust and supplied with castors and fixed feet.
No backbreaking sitting on the swoppster. The flexible sideways movements permit the active seat to adapt itself to the child's movements and not vice versa.
The joint under the spring strut permits the swoppster to tilt towards the working surface - your child's back stays straight. The spine moves freely over the pelvis that is inclined slightly forward - as when walking. The spine retains its natural S shape, your child sits upright more often, which is good for posture and respiration.
Since the human beings are made for movement, it is unnatural for them stay in one and the same (sitting) position for long periods of time. However, if you are forced to, by rigid seats, for example, it does not take long before the very mobile segments of your body start to slump. The shoulders drop forward, the chest droops. This hunched sitting posture restricts internal organs, in particular those of the respiratory and digestive systems.
The active, lively sitting on the swoppster, makes your child move more, automatically sit upright more often and thus give the diaphragm more room, breathe deeper and supply the blood with more oxygen and also makes it more alert, attentive and concentrated. You child's performance improves.
The vertical bouncing is good for the mind - your child is happier and is more likely to be in a naturally good mood on the swoppster. Furthermore, swopping makes also clever. Movement underlies brain maturation. It encourages neuronal networking and thus boosts the potential for the child's mental development.
By keeping its balance on the sprung seat of the swoppster, your child always has its entire body slightly in motion.
The balance of the neck, shoulder and trunk muscles is maintained dynamically even when sitting.
This physiological sitting keeps practically all the muscles active, well supplied with blood and generally well trained. The muscles are strengthened in this way and can better keep your child's back upright.
This results in good posture and prevents backache

It has been scientifically proven that movement and the closely linked sensory system of the body (proprioception) generally improves the metabolism and gives the brain a higher level of adaptation and processing. In particular, it has been shown that when the sense of balance is addressed, the supply of blood to the brain is improved and the metabolism enhanced. This in turn means more alertness, more attentiveness and better concentration.
