Kinema / stand up/sit down solution


The Kinema design concept of a stand-up/sit-down/leaning aid solution was developed in consideration of the demographic change. This system for a vital sitting and working environment not only offers a dynamic sitting posture but also the usability as a kneeling chair and leaning aid. Worldwide, this concept is the first patent-protected system to meet such performance parameters. Hence, Kinema is not just about sitting, but also about relieving the strain upon the body by enabling a dynamic sitting-standing-leaning movement. KinemaŽs goal is to abolish unilateral strain and disadvantageous body posture from workstations.
