The infographic shows the proportion of subjects with light human activity levels (mean > 100 cpm) when performing a simulated work task in the laboratory. The data was collected using accelerometers on the waist. The infographic compares the results of sitting in a HÅG SoFi with a conventional dynamic chair and standing.

*The Karolinska Institute is one of the world´s leading medical universities located in Stockholm, Sweden. It is the home of the Nobel Assembly in Physiology or Medicine.

**Conventional dynamic chairs are mainly task chairs with synchro mechanism. When leaning backwards in these chairs the chair seat will tilt backwards and the backrest will recline in a defined relation to the seat.
