Clear evidence that dynamic seats positively influences productivity is presented in this work. Twenty-eight voluntary women participated in an experiment involving two situations: a) with tilting seat motion and b) without tilting seat motion. Then, four common office tasks were assessed: reading, handwriting, internet browsing and keyboard writing. Two aspects were measured during the experiments: productive time and number of mistakes. It was found that a dynamic seat does not significantly affect office workers performance. On the contrary, the descriptive analysis shows higher productive time and lower number of mistakes. It is suggested that these dynamic seat configurations should be a requirement in the design of office seats. It has been shown that they reduce discomfort due to lumbar pain and contribute to increase work productivity.
