4,004 hours of sitting per year

Shocking? Well, that's how much time we spend sitting on average every single year. Today more than ever, we live in a society where sitting is normal and even associated with the feeling of being relaxed or of enjoyment. We’re conditioned to sit in pretty much any occasion, whether we’re in the car, at work in front of our computers, in public transport, at the restaurant, or in front of our TV.

The human body is not conceived for sitting all day, it’s built to move. Have you ever seen a baby sit all day? Probably not, unless we positioned him/her that way.

The idea that “sitting is the new smoking” may seem ridiculous at first sight. However, many studies have backed that quote and when we actually look at the data, we quickly realize how dangerous sitting all day really is to our health. From back pain to reduced blood circulation, all the way to reduced calorie expenditure, here’s how sitting is slowly killing us.

Here’s what happens to your body when you sit for most of the day (6 or plus hours)

Increased risk of death

"A recent Japanese study that tracked workers for 10 years found those who spent the most time sitting on the job had an increased risk of death."

Burning less calories

"When you sit, you expend fewer calories than you would while standing, you demand little effort from your muscles. Sitting too much can also lead to other behaviors that contribute to obesity "

Back pain

“ Sitting is now officially considered one of top health risks in our society for your back [...] your longer working hours and extended time on the chair is worsening your pain"

Restricts the circulation of blood

"The human body was designed for movement not for static posture, prolonged sitting have an impact on the circulatory system"

Higher risk of developing a heart disease

"Prolonged sitting is associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease"

Sit-stand desks

The perfect solution for staying active throughout your workday

It’s imperative that we move a little more every day, we all know that by now. However, actually doing it is a whole other story. That’s precisely why we got into this business in the first place; to offer a solution that is easy to implement. The solution: a height adjustable desk that allows you to alternate between sitting and standing, hence staying active throughout the day.

Here’s what happens to your body when you alternate between sitting and standing (50% of your time sitting, 50% standing)

Reduce back pain

"Standing is better for the back than sitting. It strengthens leg muscles and improves balance"

Better concentration

"Alternate between sitting and standing improve blood flow of the body and allows the brain to be more oxygenated. That gives a better concentration"

Boost creativity

"The brain is able to create 2.5x more ideas when we alternate between sitting and standing"

Increases productivity

"Productivity of the stand-capable users significantly increased over time, from 25% in the first month to 50% over the next 6 months"

Helps to live longer

''Alternate between sitting and standing increases average life expectancy by 2 years''
