Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis
NEAT, quite simply, is unplanned movements that we can introduce to our daily routines in addition to regular exercise, that will cause us to challenge our metabolic systems more consistently and in turn deter these sedentary impacts.
D. James Levine of the Mayo Clinic is a very vocal advocate of NEAT and has very clearly demonstrated through his research that if we move just a little bit more on a more continuous frequency, we can counter these effects and in fact, prevent them.
Sit-to-stand work stations are a valuable component, but realistically users only stand for possibly 20% of their day. So, an active sitting chair such as the CoreChair is an excellent complement.Other options to consider in order to introduce NEAT in the workplace would include: taking the stairs; participate in walking meetings; and even walk while we talk on our phones.
The vision of CoreChair is to offer the world’s healthiest, ergonomic and therapeutic office chair. Paying little mind to convention or tradition, we chose to focus on you, the sitter. Our tech innovation focuses on optimal posture through core stabilization and movement that mobilizes key joints most affected by sitting. We made our seat highly sculpted to relieve pressure points, prevent sliding and deliver comfort. It works in conjunction with the low back, stabilizing the pelvis to optimize your sitting posture, reduce back pain and prevent slumping at your desk. Many of us are actively seeking therapeutic remedies to help reduce our back pain. Prolonged static sitting in traditional chairs (even high end ergonomic chairs) can result in uncomfortable back strain and lack of movement. Invest in your health with an innovative seating solution designed to harmonize your personal movement with your chair.
