We’ve heard it before, sitting all day is bad for us. But few people know that the effects cannot be undone by just going to the gym. Active chairs are the solution.
TORONTO, ON, CANADA, March 2, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — TORONTO, ONTARIO (March 2, 2022)—Growing in popularity among people who work from home, office chairs are designed to offer many benefits for the health of moving while remaining in a seated position. Today’s Phil Zen Design blog post takes a look at this type of furniture, known as active chairs.
“Extensive research has shown that sitting all day is bad for us,” said the article’s author, Philippe Gryc. “What most people don’t know is that the harmful effects of continuous sitting cannot be reversed by simply going to the gym, just like eating an apple does not reverse the effects of smoking. Since many of us have no choice but to sit for long periods of time throughout the workday, it is essential that we implement solutions, such as active sitting. »
The new blog post outlines some of the important health benefits that can be gained from active sitting.
“It promotes the strengthening of core muscles, which in turn reduces the possibility of developing back pain,” writes Gryc. “Frequent movements cause muscle contraction. This increases blood flow, which translates to better oxygenation, greater focus, and improved productivity.”
“Active sitting also helps improve posture. Our daily goal should be to have good posture at all times.
The article then explores the 6 main categories of active chairs on the market, listing the advantages and disadvantages of each type. It covers reclining chairs, kneeling chairs, saddle chairs, gliding chairs, perching stools and bowling chairs.
“The purpose of this article is to introduce readers to the concept of active sitting, but also to serve as a guide to help them choose the active chair that will work best in the unique environment of their home or office,” explained Gryc.
