Back Support

Swopping all day is great for your back and core muscles, but eventually you will want to sit back and relax. The dynamic back support crafted of black polyurethane mesh lets you do just that. It's available only in the anthracite frame color and can be retrofitted to any Swopper. If you wish to order the back support separately for an existing Swopper, give us a call at (800) 531-3746.

Prolence leather is the top of the line.

The Swopper Chair offers a healthy, fun and active way to sit while you work.

Professor Ergo's Thoughts:

The Swopper Chair promotes motion and circulation with its springy vertical movement and flexible lateral movement, both of which are independently adjustable. The Swopper engages your body in active, bouncy movement that strengthens your core, back, and increases the circulation throughout your body. It’s a fun, invigorating experience. A few hours a day of this gentle bouncing is some of the healthiest movement for the body. I recommend the Swopper Chair for those seeking a comfortable alternative office chair that offers great health benefits and will keep you moving and burning calories.

I would recommend this item to a friend.

Eye-catching and fun!
August 5, 2015
After seeing the Swopper on Youtube, it was wonderful to try it out in person in your Austin store when we were up that way visiting. What a cool chair! The staff at The Human Solution was so honest with me about the possible issue with the chair - the hardness that makes it hard to sit on for a long time, and the tip to switch between chairs just as I would switch between sitting and standing during my day - that I was not troubled at all by that feature. I also appreciated the heads up that the leather cover might be more slippery than I personally would prefer. It was also really interesting to try out other chairs - kneeling chairs, saddle chairs and so forth. There is nothing like trying things out in person, and your store and your staff are awesome. I later ended up ordering a cute green cloth-covered Swopper on a platinum color base from you guys for my big Christmas present. The customer service was excellent both in store and online, delivery was as promised and I've been enjoying my Swopper ever since. When it is in the main gathering area at home (as an alternative to sitting on the couch to watch tv), guests invariable enjoy sitting on it. It roams around my home depending on where I'm in the mood to use it. An unexpected discovery: A number of chiropractors have their clients use inflatable wobble cushions daily and right before adjustments. I love that the Swopper is like a really elegant wobble cushion - it feels great to use the Swopper to stretch my spine in different ways and to activate muscles in my trunk.

Terrific seat
June 11, 2011
I bought two of the Swopper stools and they are much better than I expected. I sit on one at work all day and I've never once regretted it. It is energizing to sit on, completely unlike a regular chair, where getting out of the chair makes me regret sitting in it. With the Swopper I get up easily and feel as if I wasn't even sitting at all. I'm very glad to have the Swopper.

Great product!

Before purchasing the Swopper, I was using a Pilates Ball chair. I liked using a chair without a back and felt that it strengthened and put less pressure on my back but found the Pilates Ball chair uncomfortable after a while. This chair is better for many reasons but mainly because it's adjustable and keeps your legs at a good angle.

Great seat!!!

Everything good you read about the product is true. It's well constructed, very attractive design, and makes so much sense to sit on relative to other chairs. The only negative, which I did see in previous reviews, is that it feels a bit hard, so you do get sore about a while of sitting on it. It is padded, so I'm not sure if this is because it needs more padding or the fact that your weight is more concentrated than on a regular chair. I previous review said that he didn't mind it because it just forced him to get up and walk around more, and I completely agree. This seat makes you more active while sitting on it as well.
