The Capisco Ultrasound is ideal for hospital radiology and laboratory or any healthcare context. This chair can be configured with Healthcare Grade Vinyl's that are antimicrobial and easy to clean. (Canter vinyl is the most popular textile selection for this chair and is both antimicrobial and antibacterial.)
The Capisco's dynamic design and shape give the user as many comfortable seating options as the job demands - forward, backward, sideways - and always provides ergonomic support to the body.
The HÅG Capisco saddle chair began with the dynamic seating posture of the horse rider. No one sits as actively as an equestrian when seated. Peter Opsvik and HÅG has successfully recreated this ideal seating position for active work settings. You can feel the dynamics as soon as you sit down. HÅG Capisco was awarded "the classic award for design excellence" by the Norwegian Design Council in 2001. The rest is history! Many hundreds of thousands of Capisco's have been sold worldwide since the chairs inception.
This design lends its success to its ability to allow the spine to find its natural curvature. Need your Capisco real quick? Explore the Quick-Ship model here.

Design Studio Note: Active sitting incorporates all aspects of movement right down to your feet! Norwegian quality is apparent here and what catches our eye everytime is the careful base that even includes a ribbed and arched foot rest so that you can flip off your shoes and massage the tired soles of your feet! Just another small way to help your circulation and improve your health as you work away the day. Sit sideways. Sit backwards. It's all good and part of every Capisco chair.
