Is Active Sitting the New Ergonomics?

Ironically, active sitting is a return to the old ways, movement.

Prior to the industrial revolution that opted for increased productivity at the expense of manual workmanship, movement was required to conduct the majority of our commerce. Mass production resulted in automation or semi automation of tasks that placed less demand on the emerging production line. With it, came issues for workers in the form of repetitive strain and injury associated with this equipment.

Now, well into the technological revolution, our need to move in order to perform our tasks has been dramatically reduced. In a righteous attempt to reduce strain and injury, modern ergonomics incorporates work stations that attempt to support a person optimally however, comes at the cost of diminishing movement.

When the human body is held in a static position for prolonged periods of time, the need for stabilizing musculature is seriously diminished and our bodies become at risk of under-stimulation.Classic outcomes include physiological implications of our vascular reactivity and blood glucose regulation but we are also at risk of a decline in bone density, disc dehydration, muscle imbalance and even muscle atrophy.

Active sitting, when properly employed, introduces the subtle movements that our bodies require to keep all of these possible complications at bay. CoreChair has been designed to provide just the right amount of postural positioning to promote alignment and balance as well as stimulate your primary bodily functions.

We should not feel the need to recline or lean to complete our daily tasks but rather we should incorporate just enough movement to maintain our health.
