Cuckoo Chair / Health device

Cuckoo Chair
Cuckoo Chair

“Cuckoo Chair” is an automatic elevating seat system. With the time limit of sitting, it will intervene in sedentary behavior with height adjustment. The chair lift surface will automatically rise, so as to change the sitting posture of the user to assist the body to get up. By eliminating the need for sedentary behavior, this design reduces the risk of obesity and other cardiovascular diseases and non-communicable diseases. In addition, it also optimizes the living quality, by reducing the burden of standing up for the elderly and pregnant women and the improvement of efficiency and safety.
