Standing is not necessarily better than sitting if you do it for a prolonged period of time because standing is a passive position again. Standing does not require movement, which means it does not activate your muscles compared to another active body position.
+ What is a benefit of standing when working instead of sitting on a chair with a fixed seat? Without any debate, It is a more straight posture. When we stand, we are not slouching so much.
- On the other hand, there is a disadvantage too: Standing is a passive position again. Standing does not require movement, which means it does not activate your muscles compared to ACTIVE SITTING.
Our average working time is 8 hours a day and we can´t really change position every hour... Can you? Healthy active sitting with the SpinaliS chair is a great alternative.
What is active sitting?
Active sitting is sitting while activating and strengthening your back and core muscles. Such sitting requires a chair with a movable seat, which stimulates the user to keep balance in the body and activate the core muscles. SpinaliS health chairs force us to keep correct posture with an upright spine. This body position provides relief to intervertebral discs, reduces back pain and increases our physical fitness. Active sitting on SpinaliS chair, which is certified as a medical device, is the healthiest way to sit for an entire day. And if you need to take a break? An ergonomic backrest equipped with a breathable mesh supports the curvature of the spine.
Mr. Petr K. who had serious problems with his back had been trying many things to relieve his back pain. Here is his example:
Because I wanted to eliminate the back pain from long sitting, about 2 years ago, I did purchase a stand-up desk. I have to admit, that it did not help much, so I agree that the standing desk by itself is not a solution by itself. Later on, I added the walking treadmill to introduce movement while I am working, walking instead of standing, although I do some work standing so I can pace about when I'm talking on the phone. The real key has been the Spinalis chair. I was sitting on an exercise ball for long stretches and it was giving me serious problems. The Spinalis chair corrected that. It took a little while. I am just back from holidays, and I can tell you that the best thing about coming back to work after my holidays was the Spinalis chair waiting for me! BTW, my lower back problems were so bad I was seeing a very good chiropractor weekly. I no longer have to.”
