Children should and want to move a lot. However, a child’s daily life and conventional furniture do not give them enough opportunity. And this is precisely where the “swoppster” – the new active-dynamic 3D children’s seat – comes into effect.
How the Swoppster Evolved
Designed and developed in Germany by husband and wife team Joseph (an engineer) and Dorle (a world famous physio) Gloeckl, the Swoppster was designed to help children move:
- Blood circulation is improved.
- Supply of oxygen is increased.
- Concentration is higher.
- Muscles are strengthened.
- Posture is improved.
- Feeling good comes automatically.
Conventional children’s furniture greatly restricts children’s natural room to move. This is why Aeris developed theswoppster – the active-dynamic seat for kindergarten and primary school children – with its unique 3D movement. This makes the seat adapt itself to the child and not vice versa!
The swoppster enables a constant change of posture and thus a constant alternation between loading and relieving of the complete musculoskeletal system. This constant rhythmic movement is decisive for muscular activity and stimuli to the brain.
The earlier you start, the healthier you will sit in later years.
Lack of movement in adults and the resulting consequences for back and general state of health are all too well known. Unfortunately, this incorrect sitting behaviour often starts in younger years. Instead of moving about, children sit practically the whole day and very often as if they were “stuck to the chair” in school, doing homework, in front of the PC, playing on the PlayStation® and in front of the television. Over nine hours sitting a day are quickly clocked up. Children should learn at an early age how important it is for them to move and how they can bring more diversity and movement into sitting. They will benefit from this for the rest of their lives.
Features & Benefits:

- The swoppster prevents bad posture and strengthens the back.
- The swoppster is individually adjustable to the size, weight and movements of each child.
- The swoppster is fun and puts children in a good mood
- Red, green, orange or blue micro fibre cover
- Black base
- Three (3) year limited warranty
The unique 3D motion is provided by the flexibility of movement up and down – “swopping” – in combination with the movements to and fro and from side to side. This supports and encourages constant change of posture and thus gives important stimuli to the children’s development in body and mind. On top of that, it is purely and simply fun and puts children in a good mood.
A specially designed joint at the foot of the spring strut makes it possible for the seat to adapt itself to the child’s movements. There is no back-breaking sitting for children on the swoppster. The dangerous wobbling and tilting of conventional seats is avoided – movements on the swoppster are controlled, balanced and intentional. Combined with the vertical up and down movement, the flexible sideways movement is responsible for the added extra in movement.
Using the lever under the seat, children can easily adjust the swoppster themselves to the desired height anywhere between 32cm and 47.5cm from the floor.
