Back App - Improve your health

Our mission is to develop, manufacture and sell chairs that exercise the stabilizing muscles of your back while you are sitting, in order to improve health and well being of people around the world.

Documented effect - The technology of the Back App products has been thoroughly tested both by average users and by the top scientists in the field of ergonomics.We know it works.

Back App helps you exercise by balancing - By sitting on Back App with your feet on the footplate you’re balancing while sitting. You’re balancing on the Magic Ball without your feet touching the ground. You’re balancing just like as when you ride a bike, paddle a kayak, ride a horse or take a walk in the forest. You’re balancing without even thinking about it. The central "core" back muscles are used to balance your body - the balance motor is on.

Balance training increases your energy consumption significantly - The scientific studies show that energy consumption increases significantly when sitting relaxed on Back App with the magic ball set between the green and red settings. Sitting on Back App increases your energy consumption by 19 percent compared to an ordinary office chair. Your balance motor is working.

Improve your posture - Two studies show that it takes less effort to keep correct posture while sitting on Back App compared to sitting on an ordinary office chair without a backrest. This is why you’re able to sit comfortably on Back App all day.

You get less back pain - A scientific study showed that people with lower back pain experienced a reduction in back pain after sitting one hour on a Back App compared to an ordinary office chair. This is logical. You’re sitting with better posture, your balance motor is working, you’re exercising the muscles in your lower back and therefore you get less back pain.

You can also use the Back App technology while standing - Back App 360 uses the same technology as the Back App chair. You turn the magic ball to increase the balance training. Your balance motor is working when you’re standing on Back App 360. You get better posture and train your hip- and leg muscles. On the chair you mainly exercise your back. This is why the chair and the balance board complement each other perfectly.

Dr. Freddy Johnsen invented the Back App chair and got a healthy back - After years of back problems from sitting on standard ergonomic office chairs with backrests and armrests I had to endure several back operations. After the second surgery I hit upon the idea of the Back App; a new way of making an ergonomic chair.

Now I use the Back App as the only office chair in my daily work. The exercise from sitting on the Back App has changed my life. It is part of my daily exercise to take care of my back. I am healthy again and can sit at my desk with no problems.

From scientific studies it is evident that the Back App ergonomic office chair has the potential to remove back problems. For me it was the most important part of getting rid of back problems. The scientists confirm the experience of thousands of Back App users; sitting on the Back App gets rid of back pains. - Dr. Freddy Johnsen
