At school or at home... we sit too much!

The goal has been to develop a seating concept that promotes good spinal health by encouraging an active sitting position and utilizing the natural human urge to move at any time.

The University of Stavanger (Norway) performed extensive tests in 2015 and 2016, which show a significant improvement in spinal strengthening of pupils sitting on a Rodeo chair, compared with an ordinary chair.
RODEO - promotes global spinal health.

Rodeo is recommended for schools

Colin Pritchard-Davies is the principal at Eiganes School, which has had a trial project with Rodeo chairs since autumn 2016. He says they have very good experiences.

- Pupils with a little body turmoil get a lot of energy by being in motion on their chair. Additionally, it makes less noise when you spin physically on the Rodeo chair versus a regular four-legged chair. It helps to create a quieter class environment, with the effect that the children learn better. I believe that schools that are renewing should definitely look at Rodeo as an option when considering new chairs, "said the headmaster, who also has a Rodeo chair in his office.

Rodeostol - Design with function
