Results from Field trial in Finland 2017

The field trial hosted by the insurance company LähiTapiola main office in Espoo Helsinki (www.lahitapiola.fi). The field trial was headed by Tuukka Nieminen in Motivire OY (www.motivire.fi). 

  • 70 Participants filled in a questionnaire at September 1st 2016.
  • They left their former office chair behind and used Back App Chair and Back App 360
  • After 6 months, they reported effects of Back App Chair and Back App 360.

 

In the questionnaire, they were asked:
How would you grade your current fitness for work?

  • 1 = Completely unfit for work
  • 10 = In the best working shape

 

Of the 70 participants 34 reported to be in the best working shape before the trial. That was 50% of the participants. After sitting on Back App chair and standing on Back App 360 for 6 months the number of participants reporting to be in the best working shape increased to 46; 66,6 % of the employees. We were so impressed of the results. What does it mean for the person feeling better and being more energetic. Pains and problem go and is replaced by surplus energy. Everybody understand the difference!

We need to study this more. Positive employees full of energy is what all employers love!

The results show that active seating and standing makes a difference. Active seating and standing should be the standard for all office workers!
