Improve your balance

Rowperfect Indoor Sculler Limited Tilt Seat

One of the great benefits of on-water rowing is the development of balance skills. These skills enhance the development of the core strength muscles of the spine and abdomen and their refinement forms an essential part of the challenge of on-water rowing.

Rowperfect’s labile (moveable) seat increases safety for the user. The labile seat forces the rower to sit symmetrically, which helps to equalise the loading on each side of the spine. Balance can only be achieved when loading on each side of the seat is equal.

The very first Rowperfect had a non-tilting seat like standard rowing machines. However following a discussion with a physiotherapist, Casper Rekers realised that a seat which required balance would be of potential benefit to users; and the Rowperfect Limited Tilt was born.

The seat is balanced on rollers running on the main bar. If the seat is unevenly loaded a tilt of up to 7 degrees is possible to each side - enough to alert the user to that uneven load and then make appropriate changes in his posture and balance to correct it. In a very short time this correction becomes automatic and subconscious: a skill has been acquired.

Experience with a wide variety of athletes of various abilities, from Olympic rowing medalists to intellectually disabled athletes, has confirmed the value of the Rowperfect Limited Tilt Seat. We strongly believe that the long-term benefits of our tilting seat are another clear reason for you to choose the Rowperfect Indoor Sculler.
