Recent studies have claimed sitting in a chair all day is the new smoking in terms of health risks. The health benefits of active sitting desk chairs for the office and home are well-studied. The health risks include greater risk on hernia, colon cancer, heart disease and mushy abs.
Many offices have taken these health risks into consideration offering healthier options for employees while they work. From working behind standing desks (trust me this takes a while to get used to but certainly does have it’s appeal) to active sitting desk chairs. These chairs allow you, or force you even, to engage your muscles while sitting behind your desk.
Active sitting has become a trend to help office workers stay healthy and still get their job done efficiently. We’ve compiled a list of health alternatives for people who sit at a desk all day long.
Like your mother or teacher told you, sit up straight. Make sure not to lean forward, keep your arms close to the sides, shoulders relaxed, elbows in a 90 degree angle and your feet flat on the floor.
These chairs will not only help you do your work better (there might be a raise in it for you), they reduce serious health risks and strengthen your abs as well as other muscles, thus reducing back strain.Find Mobility Guardian on Google+
