R&D and Technological Achievements
Backwell research identified four basic principles which form the basis of the product concept:
- Motion – Your body’s need for movement
- Balance – The balance of your upper body keeps you working while we work your back
- Natural pattern – walking pattern movement is natural and intuitive for your body to balance
- Willpower – You know your back needs motion, but you are concentrated in your tasks, never mind – the chair will automatically activate the movement periodically.
We have built prototypes and tested them. Optimization was done on motion parameters as well as efficient implementation achieving:
