Get in Shape While Sitting
Recent medical research suggests that “sitting is the new smoking.”
More than 25% of U.S. adults sit at least eight hours a day at their job. This sedentary lifestyle contributes toward obesity, and increases the chances of Type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
SitTight addresses this problem by turning sitting into an activity that improves your health and cognitive performance.
It’s created an office chair that uses the body’s natural ability to balance. The chair promotes good posture by activating the paraspinal muscles in the back. Throughout the day, the core is activated, the heart rate increases, and the body burns additional calories.
Benefits from this chair are similar to those achieved with a standing desk. By 2025, the global market for this office product is expected to reach nearly $3 billion.
SitTight has three patents on its chair, which it sells via the company’s website and on Amazon.com. The chair was listed as one of Fast Company’s “World Changing Ideas” in 2018.
