How does it work?
One seat, 4 actions
With a single device, BackJoy dynamic seats act on 4 factors directly related to the problems of back pain in a sitting position:
- Anteversion: Slightly tilting the pelvis into a neutral position they allow the spine to regain its 3 natural curves
- Proprioception: imbalance leading to core muscles stimulation and strengthening of the lumbar and abdominal muscles
- Rotation: movements are facilitated, thus avoiding tension in the lumbar area
- Regain standing position : the transfer of the body forward makes it easier to return to the standing position
Tilting of the pelvis for a good posture
Without the BackJoy dynamic seat, your pelvis tilts backward, the lumbar curve disappears and your back slumps. So the weight of your body focuses on the lumbar vertebrae, causing tension and pain going up to the cervical vertebrae. When you sit with a BackJoy dynamic seat, everything changes. It tilts your pelvis slightly forward in the so-called "neutral" position, allowing your spine to regain its three natural curves and a controlled position by distributing the pressure over the whole of your back. The BackJoy dynamic seat liberates your pelvis, giving you an optimal posture, without effort. BackJoy seats do not cure back problems but relieve them. Their innovative design relieves and strengthens your back in a natural and effective way.
Biomechanics of the back
The spine is the pillar of the skeleton. It is a long articulated bone stem, both strong and flexible, that connects the base of the skull to the pelvis. It supports the head, the ribs and indirectly the scapular belt.

BackJoy: a dynamic sitting position restored. Our body is not adapted to sit motionless all day long in front of our computer. However, we are all sitting very often all day long without questioning the long-term consequences of this position. Cardiovascular, joint, muscle, digestive disorders...
Proven results for all user categories
People suffering from back pain
Invented in the USA, BackJoy dynamic seats have been adopted by more than 4.5 million people worldwide. Physiotherapists who have tested the seat recommend it and use it for a variety of pathologies to relieve their patients’ pain. The BackJoy dynamic seats act naturally on the musculoskeletal system of the back and at the same time stimulate it. They restore postural balance and set the back "in motion" perceptibly. It is this dynamic effect, combined with a regained postural balance, that makes our products so successful. Whether you suffer from back pain, neck pain or low back pain, BackJoy will allow you to relieve your back and no longer suffer from the sitting position and static effect it causes. Your BackJoy seat will become your daily ally, especially if you suffer from sciatica or herniated discs that make your daily journeys painful, or when using screens that can cause tech-necks.
But also, for athletes and all the people in good physical condition...
Beyond its soothing benefits, BackJoy's sporty and dynamic aspect is well known. Especially for all the sportspeople who want to recover in an optimal way by relieving their back. When sitting, the mechanisms of muscular tonus and tilting of the pelvis, structural elements of a healthy and well-toned back, are not used. Through a simple biomechanical action chain, recognized and validated by therapists, BackJoy dynamic seats maintain the muscular tone of the back and prevent it from slumping or remaining static. These active principles stimulate the deep muscles and strengthen the back, in particular through the use of proprioception mechanisms. Many athletes have become aware of the importance of using the BackJoy seat as a complement to their main sport. In golf in particular, cycling or running, sitting at work or at home is often a time for recovery, the use of the BackJoy seat speeds up recovery and avoids the danger of a rigid and arched sitting position.
For the therapists, as a support for the diagnostic phase and as a prolongation of the benefits of the office treatment.
The dynamic seat is a recognized natural and biomechanical solution for therapists to help their patients suffering from back pain. The easy use of the BackJoy seats offers advantages for the therapist during the examination phase and for diagnosis. They have found their place in many medical practices, allowing the musculoskeletal chain of the back to be unblocked and facilitating examination, but also as a therapeutic education tool for the correct sitting position. For patients, the BackJoy dynamic seats are the ideal support to put into practice the advice given by their therapists and thus extending the benefits of the treatment outside the office and on a regular basis.
And for companies that care about their employees
We spend on average 9 hours a day in a sitting position, a significant part of which is spent at work. This physiologically "inactive" sitting time is not without consequences for companies that are now aware that well-being at work is an integral part of the social responsibility of their activity. Today, back pain is the second most common reason for consulting a general practitioner and the leading cause of work disability among people under 45 years old. Stress, tensions, digitisation of working conditions accentuate the disadvantages of a static and incorrect sitting position. The double effect of BackJoy dynamic seats, which relieve and strengthen the back, allow you to be less affected by the constraints of the sitting position at work, by postponing the stress related tension effects that are often located in the back. They therefore offer an economical and efficient solution for all companies concerned about the ergonomics and well-being of their employees.
BackJoy: Active support for back problems
The Backjoy dynamic seats are made from a patent-protected cup design that guarantees support with analgesic and dynamic effects. In fact, the rounded shape of the seat cup provides a pivot point that makes the seat mobile and liberates the pelvis to bring the desired imbalance, the basis of the device's proprioceptive action. Thanks to this action, the BackJoy dynamic seats stimulate your deep muscles, naturally strengthening the back, thus making your sitting time "active".
Four support points for optimal efficiency
- 2 ischials of the iliac bone on the top of the seat
- 2 femurs on either side of the front part of the seat
With the BackJoy dynamic seat, the lumbar curvature regains its role as the body's first shock absorber in a seated position and places all the anatomical elements of the back in their natural position. This postural effect also helps to restore the physiological functioning of the air column and blood circulation.
Everywhere and for everyone!
Can be used on all types of supports: chairs, armchairs, office chairs, cars, public transport, leisure activities, etc...
