SpinaliS Active Chairs

SpinaliS is the unique chair on the market that has passed through several years of detailed studies regarding the impact on human health and the development of the spine. Many doctors and specialists and scientific institutions have been involved in the process of bringing SpinaliS health chairs to their current form, mainly those with expertise in orthopaedics.

In 1999, the Slovenian company Ham d.o.o. developed the first SpinaliS health chair and the first generation of the SpinaliS spring. This spring was tested on a group of one hundred people for a period of two years. All participants were regularly checked with a diagnostic device, which indicated the time and intensity levels of engaged muscle groups, indicating the impact on the mobility of the pelvis and any degenerative changes in the spine.

Since 1999, SpinaliS has developed 10 different models of SpinaliS chairs, which are specific for any type of figure, with regard to individuals‘ height, weight or way of usage.

Today, the company is using the fourth generation of the SpinaliS spring, and each generation was tested on hundreds of adult persons and children at schools in Slovenia. During the first tests, Spinalis’ movable seat achieved an efficiency of only 40% compared with its current model, today’s fourth generation. All of these tests were an integral part of technological development to ensure 100% functionality and health effect of the SpinaliS chair.

As a result, the unique, worldwide patented, SpinaliS chairs are now regarded as one of the best in the world and have been awarded as “Best office chair of the Year” in various European countries several times.

Using SpinaliS chair causes a sensorimotor simulation effect, which forces us to engage deep stabilizing muscles. These muscles weaken when sitting on classic chairs with static seats.
The goal of this simulation is to maintain a correct posture and correct position of the spine while bending over the work surface, which leads to eliminating back pain, especially in the area of neck and hips. The comfortable backrest and armrests of SpinaliS health chairs provide a safe andhealthy sitting all day round.

The most involved specialists and instituitions in the technical development and testing of the SpinaliS chairs were:

Clinical evaluation of the medical device was processed by multiple clinics in Europe.In various European countries, SpinaliS chairs were a subject of many independent clinical trials and tests. As a result, these chairs have been personally used and are recommended by many doctors and physiotherapists as a suitable chair for long periods of sitting without causing back pain and fatigue.
