The seat sides established a number of piezo-sensors that respond to human touch. The system is activated when you touch a certain point cover to avoid accidental startup function.
The electric field reads the slightest touch, and then starts to adjust to the chair person, depending on the direction of his fingers. The position of a member’s seat is fixed after a few taps on the same point.
