It’s about time you stand up for your health.
Sitting for extended periods of time can be damaging to your health, even if you exercise. Studies indicate that sitting in an office chair or a couch for more than six hours per day can increase the risk of cardiovascular events (147%), diabetes (112%) and certain forms of cancer such as colon cancer. However, studies show that the average American sits for about 7.7 hours per day. Taking these things into consideration, you can say that sitting can eventually kill you.
To reduce and eliminate the ill effects of too much sitting on your health, the American Medical Association (AMA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommend alternative means to prolonged sitting such as standing desks, exercise balls and treadmills. Research indicates that by reducing the amount of time people sit on their desks, the life expectancy of the average American can be increased by up to two years.
Introducing the Stir Kinetic M1 Standing Desk
While there are a lot of standing desks available today, the Stir Kinetic M1 standing desk can be considered as one of the best money can buy. At $2,990, this desk definitely does not come cheap but the rewards are well worth the price. Studies indicate that while 95% of Stir users avoid prolonged sitting, only 30% of those who use push-button, height-adjustable standing desks even change positions in their desks once a week.
Aside from its sleek and slim profile which is capable of supporting multiple accessories, the Stir Kinetic M1 desk features an ergonomic design which softens and reduces the effect on circulation. It is made from engineered wood and has a unique powder coat finish to ensure strength, durability and appeal.
However, the real power of the desk lies in its computerized brain. The Stir Kinetic M1 desk is powered by a 1 GHz Cortex-A8 processor and has a set of proprietary algorithms and custom interfaces that allows the desk to learn and adapt to the needs of each of its users. It also has an auto log-in feature to make desk sharing easy and efficient. The desk stores data in the cloud and can be synced to third-party devices such as FitBit.
This intelligent standing desk gives a soft whirring signal to indicate that the user needs to stand up or has earned the right to sit down. Its mechanized legs automatically adjust to provide the perfect height of its users. Needless to say, by constantly standing and sitting all day as you work, you can start losing pounds and improve your overall health.?????
