The Hag Chair Philosophy and the plus points for Hag chairs
Dynamic Ergonomy: Always in perfect balance
The Hag chair balances the the body in an intuitive way, ensuring that you are seated correctly. According to our philosophy, the next sitting position is always the best. All of our chairs are designed to allow you to move your entire body, without having to think about it. This lets you perform better while safeguarding your well-being. You are always prepared for a new movement and a new task!
Designed for the human body
The body is not made for sitting still but for movement and variation.
We were intrigued that people had once been able to sit for long hours on horseback. We understood that this had something to do with upright posture and the active use of the body even though riders were essentially sitting. We realised that our feet play an important role when we sit for extended periods. For riders, the stirrups enabled the upper body to be more active when sitting – this was a key observation since active arms are essential in office work! We also drew inspiration from kids, believing they had much to teach us. Their “workday” is extremely varied, with constant movement and new postures. As they grow up, they are increasingly told to “sit still”. We aren’t designed to be still but to lead active lives.
Movement and variation
We are not designed to be still but for movement and variation.
Movement is natural, necessary, nourishing and comfortable. Life is movement. With our way of life having changed so dramatically, movement while sitting has become crucial to staying healthy and working efficiently. When we sit at work, concentrating on a task, we may move our hands, arms and head but we often simply “forget” about our legs. They remain “parked” and static. This affects the whole body. Ever noticed how tired you get after sitting for long periods? Hag chairs inspire you to move your feet.
Always perfectly in balance
Balance is the best starting point for movement.
To achieve dynamic sitting you need a Balanced Movement Mechanism™ and user-friendly controls to personalise the settings of your chair. Once balance has been achieved, your body controls the chair, deciding when to move and when to sit still in a given position.
Movement of the whole body without having to think about it.
The Balanced Movement Mechanism™ is unique to the Hag chair! In a Hag chair, the front edge of the seat tilts upwards when you lean backwards and down when you lean forwards. This stimulates ankle movement, in turn activating the circulation mechanisms of your lower legs (“the peripheral heart”), enhancing circulation throughout the body. The result is greater energy and improved efficiency at work.Bottom of Form.

The concept of the Office chair has changed and movement should play an important role where possible. We still tell our children to sit up straight and sit still which is very unnatural, difficult and more importantly unhealthy and this also applies to adults whether they are sitting in a Typist, Operator or Executive chair. In later life this bad start is compounded by the fact that most office chairs still focus more on support and ‘correct sitting posture’ than on our body’s innate need to move. In the office environment today we sit our way through the day, perhaps in front of the computer, and think we need more and more support, as our body never stops aching. Today there is a thinking to spend more money on a desk and little on the Operators chair, this way of thinking needs to change, the office chair should be the priority.
Air Seating and Summit offer a wide range of products to cover Operator, Typist and Computer chairs and Tamperproof chairs suitable for office seating and educational seating in a variety of fabrics. The range then extends through to Boardroom, Leather and Executive leather chairs to suit a wide price range. To compliment the Boardroom, Leather and Executive leather chairs there is also a range of meeting and conference chairs available.
A wide variety of office chairs are also available in our Hag range and there are three ranges in particular to suit all aspects of the operator chairs, HAG H05 chairs, HAG H04 Credo chairs and HAG H03 chair.
Microdesk Dual Purpose Writing Platform
The MicroDesk is a unique solution allowing comfortable keyboarding and document reference in line with your keyboard and monitor. The MicroDesk has been specifically designed for keyboard users that need to refer to paperwork or documentation that has traditionally been placed to either side of the monitor or keyboard.
The Microdesk is a clear acrylic, writing slope, with adjustable non slip feet, that fits over your keyboard. The Microdesk allows you to avoid repetitive body twisting whilst writing or referring to documents to the side of the keyboard. As your papers are placed directly in front of you, twisting and neck stretching problems are avoided. This is a fundamental requirement for any ergonomic workstation.
The Microdesk standard is 56cm wide and has a fully height and slope adjustable from 6cm – 13cm at the front and 13cm – 20cm at the back. The Microdesk is completely stable at any height setting, which makes it the most versatile product of its type available today.
The MicroDesk Compact is 43cm wide and has more compact feet for more desk space saving!
Choose the MicroDesk if you do large amounts of data entry or copy-typing.
How to Use
Adjust the height to suit either a flat surface or a keyboard tray. When writing on the Microdesk™, keep elbows within range of your body, no reaching out. Write with a bent elbow not a straight arm. You can access the function and number keys of the keyboard beneath the front edge of the Microdesk™ and rest your forearm comfortably on the platform on top when using the Microdesk™ for writing.
Keep your chair close to the desk and your mouse close to the keyboard. Your back and feet should be well supported, and your shoulders and neck relaxed for work.
The Microdesk™ suits left and right-handed writers. There is a removable lip at the base to stop your papers from sliding off – don’t lean your wrist on the high lip while writing, keep to the side where there is a flat area OR change to the low lip profile. The ruler / line guide is included with all desk models.
Note: Do not slump or stoop as you work. This causes tension in your back, neck and shoulder areas. The Microdesk™ helps relieve this tension through positioning your body well while you work.

Together with The Royal Shrewsbury Hospital we have completed extensive trials in the field to help overcome the many problems in day to day activities. An independent RULA assessment was carried out by the occupational health department for sonographers and midwives (copies available on request). The medical chair used for these trials was the HAG Capisco which due to its unique design and adaptability proved a great help in overcoming the operators problems. There were also many other areas in the medical field were the HAG Capisco proved invaluable.

No one sits as actively as the horse rider in the saddle. HAG Capisco as recreated the ideal seating position for active work. You can feel the dynamics when you sit down and understand how HAG Capisco is inviting you to variation and movement.
The fact that the increase in sitting was combined with a decrease in discomfort implies that the ergonomic chairs had a positive influence in the workplace. Although the backrest of the new chairs can be used to support the chest while leaning forward, the employees in this study found that using the chairs in the traditional way was ideal for their tasks. The employees report armrest shape and saddle seat make this chair more comfortable and easier to use than a traditional dental stool. The study’s findings indicate that this chair may be useful not only for dental workers, but also other occupational groups that use a forward leaning posture to perform their work, such as microscope users, surgeons, and other health care clinicians. These users may find it beneficial to have a saddle seat as well as an option to use the backrest as a chest support.

The number of people today sitting on Industrial chairs who are affected by work related musculoskeletal disorders is enormous and the related costs are massive. Although the frequency of manual work is decreasing, the reports on low back pain are increasing but we cannot say that the work chair is totally responsible for this but it does play an important part.

The body needs movement and the office chair should stimulate and invite natural movement of the body throughout the working day. Movement is crucial for concentrated work and movement of the ankles is particularly important, to stimulate the ‘peripheral heart’. Airlines have learned the importance of ankle movement to help to protect against the possibility of DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis) and try to encourage us to flex our ankles regularly during the flight, but we have to remember to do this. Enabling and encouraging such movement with an office chair should be integral to the chair so that we are able to move on the chair without having to think about it.
In office ergonomics we know the importance of movement, but very few purchasers focus on this when choosing an Operator chair or Computer chair, possibly because the office chairs that offer mobility are few and far between. The old-style rocking chair offers movement of the whole body without having to think about it and everyone knows that when you sit in a rocking chair it follows your every movement, but you may sit still too; your body decides.

With a spine running down the backbone of the chair it allows adjustment of the lumbar support and a neck support on certain chairs and incorporates a foot rest on the base of the chair. All leather and mesh backs can be complimented by the communication range of matching visitor chairs.
