The innovation: ONGO Seat has a ball track integrated in its convex base. The convex shape of the base enables the stool to follow every movement the sitter makes, which is transmitted to the steel ball in the track. The rolling sound of the ball is the acoustic feedback the sitter receives every time the sitting position is altered. Carrying out certain exercises, such as circling the hips, will make the ball rotate full circle around the track. Sitting on an ONGO Seat can be extended as far as to include a specific and effective back workout that can easily be integrated in the daily routine playfully and with no loss of time – at the office, the gym and at home. The ONGO Seat is nominated for the FIB0 Innovation Award.

During product development, biometric measurements and trials with patients were carried out by the lnstitut fur Bewegungsanalyse der Kaiser-Karl-Klinik in Bonn (Institute for Human Motion Analysis of the Karl-Kaiser-Klinik, Bonn).

The results showed that after only four weeks’ active use of ONGO Seat increased mobility was detectable. These medical findings formed the basis for the development of the
ONGO Move training program.
