Happy Up / office chair

Happy Up
Happy Up

Office workers are prone to getting lumbar vertebra disease, headache and cardiovascular disease because of the long time sitting at desk. Happy Up hopes to change their sedentary lifestyle by providing an aid to help people get up from the chair.
Happy Up installs a buffer spring lever in office chair chassis. Usually the chair surface naturally tilts up. When people sits on it, the lever linked with spring buffer moves and provides an oblique upward force for people to get up.
