Dynamics in static sitting

Dear Sir or Madam,

sitting in the same position for a long time - who doesn't know this? Especially people who spend a lot of time working in the office or who have to drive long distances every day are affected. An intelligent seating system called SensA-Chair provides more dynamics, without any optical or acoustic signals. In our interview, you will learn more about the AI-based seating system and its advantages.

I wish you a successful week
