The invention

The Dondola principle

The spine, supporting column of our body, is a complicated construction. Despite its supporting and holding function, it needs flexibility to allow a person to move. This mobility is provided by the intervertebral discs. Unlike other human organs, these are not supplied with nutrients by the bloodstream, but have to get their own supply via the body’s movement. Similar to a sponge, relief and strain cause fluids to be supplied and removed.

During static sitting, however, the intervertebral discs are compressed. In the long run, this will inevitably result in back problems.

Based on active, dynamic sitting, the Dondola seat joint ensures that the intervertebral discs are constantly supplied with fluids and that metabolic exchange takes place.     

Movement - a central component of our lives

The Dondola seat joint ensures that the back muscles are constantly moving. This means the muscles are activated all day long, providing targeted prevention of posture problems and scoliosis.

Another beneficial side-effect of dynamic sitting is the activation of the motion and sensory centre in the human brain. Constant movement keeps you alert all day, it increases concentration and the ability to perform, and promotes creativity.

Dondola works

The Dondola concept was developed in close co-operation with occupational health professionals and physiotherapists. 

It is a unique mobile system that enables dynamic movement around the transverse and longitudinal axes of the chair’s seat. The Dondola seat joint gets things moving.

Scientifically proven. A medical study carried out at Regensburg University, supervised by Prof. Dr. med. Joachim Grifka, shows revolutionary results:

Pain reduction in test subjects by 66% (Visual Analogue Scale) Reduction of restrictions in everyday activities based on back pain by 50% (Oswestry Disability Index) Significant increase of overall well-being by up to 39% (SF36).
