One question we often get from customers is “Which motion chair is right for me?” With two motion chair options, Swopper and Muvman, the decision can get confusing. That’s why we’re detailing the differences between the chairs, to better help you decide.
To help illustrate the differences between the chairs, we profiled different types of sitters to tell you why you may want to choose one chair over another.
If you spend 8-10 hours a day sitting at a desk
If you’re at your desk for long stretches of the day and do a lot of sitting during that time, you should consider Swopper Motion Chair. There are multiple seat colors to select from and you can choose either casters or glides. Casters are the wheels on the base – which are great if you like to roll your chair over to your coworker’s desk to collaborate.
Why Swopper is awesome: It allows you to move and stay active during long stretches of time at your desk focusing on projects – keeping you alert, energized, and more productive.
What customers say: “What I love about my Swopper is that no matter how far I reach out…I can grab what I need and bounce right back to where I was, and without bending my body in an unfortunate position. I love to bounce and move constantly and you might find me a little distracting to have a face-to-face conversation but I’m having more fun at my desk than you are!”
What makes it better than similar-looking stools? Unlike other motion chairs (like the ErgoStool, Ballo, or balance balls), Swopper is able to move in all directions, including up and down – while offering an extremely stable base and durable seat that will bounce with you for years.
If you’re always on the move, or if you have a sit/stand desk
The Muvman height adjustable stool is for people who can’t sit still and would like to switch from sitting to perching to standing whenever they want. It’s also great if you’re always on the move around the office. Muvman is easy to lift and has a built-in handle to be able to move the chair into a different room for meetings.
What customers say: “The chair is so light and meets all of my needs whether I’m typing on my computer, talking on the phone, or holding a conference. Muvman meets all of my frequently changing office needs.”
What makes it better than similar-looking sit/stand stools? Unlike other active chairs (like Luna Standing Desk Stool, the HON Perch Stool, the VARI Active Seat, and the Locus Seat by Focal Upright), Muvman is made with higher quality material, base and seat pan are made from fiberglass-reinforced polymid, the cylinder is made by a renowned German company and Muvman features a high-end microfiber upholstery that is also soft to the touch. Muvman is also lighter – making it more portable and has a larger seat range adjustment.
In short, both of these motion chairs provide unique benefits. And they are both designed and built by Aeris, the motion seating experts, based in Germany. We’re confident that the Swopper or Muvman could be the perfect fit for your needs.
