The BackUp® (USA design patented) is a work stool with a unique hydraulic system. The hydraulic system allows the user to determine the amount of leg support desired without cutting off circulation to the back of the legs. This allows the user to sit in higher working positions, reduce pressure on the discs, and prevents the pelvis from rotating backwards. The convex lumbar support allows for optimal freedom of movement, while activating stretching of the spine. The BackUp® is the perfect solution for people who do not like saddle style stools.
The BackUp® is designed to prevent and reduce lower back, neck, and shoulder complaints. The lumbar support allows for maximum freedom of movement. It fits snuggly into the lumbar curvature where support is most needed to maintain natural upright posture in working positions. The waterfall shaped seat provides an anatomical platform for the pelvis, supporting a natural and relaxed curvature of the spine and reducing fatigue with prolonged seating.
The BackUp® has proven its contribution to preventing and improving back complaints in many cases. Available with various accessories (see accessories page).

“As an ergonomics specialist, here's my two cents on a product I absolutely love. BQE has different designs with different price points, however, the beauty of the chair, unlike ANY in the industry, is that there is a "dynamic" backrest that moves with your spine. That means when the clinician is actively working, they are in a slightly forward pitched (tipped) position, and when the clinician is in a passive state, the back rest fully supports the lumbar region--the most vulnerable part of the spine. It's truly revolutionary and exceeds the criteria of my critical body of knowledge regarding posture.”
