as seat pad for chairs
Are you sitting too much?
Well, let´s face some facts first...
We sit an average of

Most people sit with a
Sitting for long periods with the pelvis tilted causes PAIN
But, how to change it?
Easy, use Air8 cushion as seat pad!
Air8 will liven up your
Through active sitting!
Air8 gives the pelvis a gentle grip from the front and back without forcing it into a stiff position.
The tilting of the pelvis is reduced and the back can straighten up ideally.
Thanks to the air cushioning, the torso constantly balances out the smallest changes of position. The entire musculature is trained at the same time.
The advantages of
less back pain
strengthened pelvic floor
relaxed hip joints
better sense of body symmetry
increased calorie consumption
That happens with
The conscious straightening of the spine activates and trains the core muscles, which also increases calorie consumption.
The sacrum is gently supported, the pelvis is centered. This neutral position makes it easier to sit upright with a straight spine.
The round cushion pads keep the leg axis straight, harmful leg crossing is not possible. The body symmetry is promoted.
The ischial tuberosities balance on the air cushion. These balancing micro-movements strengthen the pelvic floor and keep pelvic joints flexible.
The hip joints float freely above the narrow middle section. The femoral heads can relax from the hip socket. There is no pressure on the underside of the legs. Blood and lymph circulation can flow undisturbed.
How long to sit actively?
Just 15 minutes of conscious straight sitting on Air8
is sufficient for training of the deep muscles of the torso. Postural complaints such as back pain, tense shoulders, headaches or pelvic problems can be positively influenced in this way.
The alternation of sitting positions
is the best prevention of back pain
Different sitting positions can be achieved with the Air8 cushion. The classic use as a seat pad in the shape of a saddle is just one of the options for active sitting. However, Air8 is also ideally suited as a back support, on both sides, with the saddle pads turned towards the user´s back or towards the back of the chair. Thanks to the upright expanding air filling, the torso gets the ideal mix of relief and muscle activity.
With saddle pads behind the back, the
Air8 cushion supports and activates two important parts of the spine: the sacrum and the thoracic spine. It feels upright and gently springy, as if the back is growing long on its own. The smallest movements of the body are perceived as beneficial vibrations by the air echo of the cushion. The autochthonous muscles are kept active, which improves concentration.
The variant with the flat side behind the back ensures more seating comfort without completely "collapsing". The torso can still expand along the cushion side and benefits from the gentle echo of the air cushion. The advantage of both positions is that the buttocks slide further forward to the edge of the chair. in this way, the thighs are relieved of any pressure from the seat surface. This stimulates the blood circulation and prevents varicose veins and cellulite.
Last but not least, Air8 cushion
can be also used as...
... a foot swing
Tired or tingling legs? Simply place the Air8 on the floor with the round side down. Put your feet on, slowly rock back and forth.
The even movement activates the natural pumping function of the veins and muscles, like when running or climbing stairs.
This improves blood and lymph flow, stretches the Achilles tendon, and invigorates the whole body.
... a foot stretcher
Painful feet? Get out of your shoes, put your feet on the two cushion pads. Due to the shape and air filling, the soles of the feet receive a pleasant relief.
All foot structures - including the longitudinal and transverse arches, joints, muscles and fasciae, are gently stretched and activated. The Air8 reacts with immediate feedback to the smallest movements of the feet, such as rocking, circling, toe stretching, etc. Many exercises are possible. Enjoy proprioception!
