BackApp is a company out of Sweden, the brainchild of Dr. Freddy Johnsen. After having three back surgeries, he developed the idea for an active seating sit stand chair based on a balance board, which is a device usually used for athletic training, brain development, and physical and other therapies. Along with designer, Jostein Magerøy, he created and patented the Backapp sit stand chair and the Back App 360 Board. His revolutionary company's mission is "to develop, manufacture and sell chairs that exercise the stabilizing muscles of your back while you are sitting, in order to improve the health and well being of people around the world". This ergonomic office stool is truly unique in its design and made from quality materials, as is usually the case with Scandinavian design!
The NEW Backapp Hipp chair, like the Backapp is to be used with sit-stand desks and as a support chair when you would like some kind of 'minimal' support when standing. As a support chair it gives you just enough support to take the weight off your spine and lower torso but also energizes your body as if you were standing entirely without any support. Once seated on the HIPP sit-stand chair, with your feet on a footrest padded with a soft damping material, you rock slightly, always in motion as you are attempting to balance your body. This gentle movement, exercises the muscles that support the spine, building strength and in a way, massaging them and pumping essential lubrication to your body's joints and tissues. The base is injection molded high strength, low flexibility fiberglass enforced PP (polypropylene) compound. By turning the ball you can increase or decrease the degree of tilting movement the chair gives you while in use. Counter clockwise you get more movement, clockwise less movement.
The balance board concept is increasingly being used to increase holistic health in a myriad of ways - to expand neural networks that enable the left and right hemispheres of the brain to communicate with each other, thereby increasing its efficiency; to develop sensory integration and cognitive skills in children with developmental disorders; to teach singers optimal posture for the control of air-flow; and to shake off writer's block and other inhibitors of creativity. It's easy to see why the Back App products would be so beneficial! We were extremely impressed by the HIPP Chair quality and comfort level when our designers tried it out! Norwegian design.

Back App helped me to open my posture and keeps me moving during the day. After sitting on Back App I’ve become more flexible and my back ache is now gone. Just wish I had come across Back App years ago!
Back App is amazing! Even after only a few days of using the chair, I could feel the difference in my posture as muscles – unknown to me before – started to work to hold my back in a straighter position.
