Back pain, no thank you!

We are looking after your back.


During a lifetime, people spend about 80,000 hours in the office - 85% of them sat down. Overall, we sit up to 15 hours a day - when eating, in the car, at work, watching TV, etc. By constantly sitting still, the muscles become slack. They can no longer fulfil their support function. The pressure on the intervertebral discs increases. In the long term, this has a damaging effect on the spine and causes chronic back pain. Sitting strains the intervertebral discs significantly stronger than standing or walking.

Back pain

80% of the population suffer from back pain (source: Fraunhofer Institute). Back pain is the most common reason for visits to the doctor and early retirement. Approximately a third of all sick notes are due to musculoskeletal disorders (source: “Aktion Gesunder Rücken” action healthy back). These diseases, including muscle tension, herniated vertebral disc and lumbago are lengthy and therefore cause many lost working days.

The Office Furniture Forum speaks of 86 million working days lost each year solely due to back problems.

The solution: Stand-Sit-workplaces!


The VDU Display Screen Regulations stipulate that the workplace must allow an ergonomic working posture. But what exactly does that mean? Which table has really been ergonomically designed?

The DIN standards require that the working person should be able to alternate between sitting and standing positions.

A stand-sit workplace, where employees can choose their working position, is ideal.

Due to the use of electrical adjustment systems, the employee can not only decide himself how to work, but also effortlessly adjust the working position. Ease of use and fast adaptation to the particular working situation are no problem. The requirement for a continuously variable adjustment according to VBG are met.

Dynamic working

means healthy working!

Continuous changes of posture (sitting and standing rhythm) hinder premature fatigue and acute or chronic postural deformity due to one-sided strain. The spine is noticeably relieved, the blood circulation in the intervertebral discs is improved and they regenerate faster. The physical well-being is improved.

Ergonomics experts recommend at least 2 changes of posture per hour, with standing less than 20 minutes at a time. Static standing should be avoided as well as rigid sitting. To relieve the back, footrests are highly recommended whilst standing
