                               to explore their surroundings, their upright posture became the key feature of moving from A to B. After many thousands of years of
                               evolution, we raised our heads, lifted our arms off the ground and straightened our knees in order to finally be able to stride through
                               the world in an upright position. It then only took 200 years of sitting to force half of the human race back into a bent posture.

What exactly makes a car seat a genuine RECARO, a modern, high-tech seat? It is the experience gained over more than 100 years
of company history, the knowledge, the technology and the special philosophy integrated into every RECARO. Our products may
be more exclusive and expensive than others, but in the design and manufacturing process we will not make economies that can
affect safety, ergonomics and the comfort of the seat. Therefore, sitting in a genuine RECARO is a very special feeling.

                                 We already know that the physical build of modern man has not been developed primarily for sitting down. But why exactly does
                                 sitting cause so many problems? The main issue is maintaining the supply of fluid to the individual discs in the spine, which is not
                                 ensured when a person is sitting down. In a sitting position, the discs lose more than 70% of the stored fluid in less than 20 minutes.
                                 This results in a lack of nutrients and can cause long term damage. Preventing this from happening is one of our main objectives.
