In 2018 we had 131 employees at the companies Ving, Siemens and Tretton37 test the Backapp Chair and Backapp 360 Balance Board. The results show that by changing out a traditional office chair with the Backapp chair and 360 Balance Board, there was a significant reduction of pain in the back, shoulders and neck, and also a markedly positive difference in the energy level at the end of each workday. Here are some of the effects:
At the start of the study, 52% of the participants reported pains in the lower back every week when using their traditional office chair.
At the start of the study, 50% of the participants reported pains in the upper body every day or at least two days a week. After 6 weeks this number decreased to 29%
At the start of the study, 7 of 10 participants reported pain in the shoulder and neck at least one day a week. After 6 weeks using Backapp, this was reduced to 4 of 10 participants (a 43% reduction).
At the start of the study, 37% of the participants stated that they had headaches every week both at work and after work when using their traditional office chair. After 6 weeks using the Backapp products, this number was reduced to 25%
50% of the participants stated that they regularly felt tired and spent at the end of the work day when sitting on a traditional chair. After 6 weeks using the Backapp products, this number was reduced to 25%
At the start of the study, 95% of the participants stated that they experienced pain in the upper body every week sitting on a traditional chair. After 6 weeks using the Backapp products, this number was reduced to 79%
NOTE: It is completely free to try the Backapp chair. If you decide that it is not working for you, we will arrange to pick up the chair after 14 days.

About the Studies
131 office workers from Tretton37 AB, Bing Resor AB and Siemens AS participated in the study. The study was developed and organized by Force Technology AS, and independent third party consulting firm. The participants completed a questionnaire both before the start and after the completion of the 6 weeks study. All 131 participants received both a Backapp chair and a Backapp 360 balance board during the study period, but did not have access to their traditional office chair during this period. All participants worked at a height adjustable desk. Would you like to read the complete study and results? Please click here.
