We recommend a daily increase of 3 minutes per day. As an absolute minimum, Sturfer in the standard position is sufficient for 20 minutes to maintain freedom from pain. For training success, continuous use throughout the day is advisable after an introductory period. We anticipate a comfortable usage time of 4-5 hours daily to keep all muscle groups involved sufficiently stretched.

No, but you must be careful to start very slowly. It is necessary to increase the sturfing time of 3 minutes on the first day by no more than 3 minutes per day.

No, the sturfer will do that for you. However, you should do a therapy from the field of elastopathy before the sturfer. In this process, the muscles are first made elastic so that the almost complete stretch is possible.

No. The specially designed, laid out & certified base ensures perfect stability in all positions. The load is always central. So far, we have not managed to make the sturfer topple over.

We recommend an individual sturfer for each user. The reason for this are necessary individual settings that should not be changed for every application. The sturfer should be used again and again in different positions during the course of the day; this is only possible if you have a sturfer available all the time. Furthermore, you have a different relationship to your sturfer than you do to a chair. You are very close to the sturfer with the front of the body and the fabric also with your face. We therefore recommend that you use your own sturfer, also for hygienic reasons.
