Revolutionising your health wherever you’re working from.

Health experts have long espoused the detriments that our sedentary lifestyle has on our health, with long periods of sitting a risk factor for musculoskeletal disorders and symptoms, and chronic illnesses including cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes and even early death. Recent health studies have found that these risk factors were still present amongst those who had prolonged periods of sitting regardless of the amount of physical activity they were achieving outside this sitting time. Prolonged sitting has become a public health issue that governments and businesses can no longer ignore.

Office-based employees are one of the top three groups of workers most at risk from prolonged sitting, spending a whopping 75 per cent of work hours in sedentary time. Research has shown that reducing and breaking up prolonged sitting for those in the high-risk groups would lead to the greatest population health benefits, and that interventions where employees had control over how often they sat or stood have resulted in a significant decrease in the time spent sitting. The correlated health outcomes include reductions in musculoskeletal symptoms, body part discomfort, and the occurrence of illness and injuries.
