Research has proven that remaining seated for too long is bad for your health, regardless of how much exercise you do. Studies have linked excessive sitting with being overweight and obese, type 2 diabetes, some types of cancer, and premature death. Prolonged sitting slows the metabolism, which affects the body's ability to regulate blood sugar, blood pressure and break down body fat. Many adults spend more than seven hours a day sitting at their job. To address this unhealthy, but necessary lifestyle (earning a living!), a new line of office furniture has been designed, named Motion Furniture (by Via).
3Dee Active Office Chair
The most innovative chair in the world! The 3Dee Active Office Chair is the first of its kind, and the result of absolute consistency – in engineering just as in design. Its 3D movement- horizontal, vertical, and forward tilt – is designed to deliver more well being, more energy, more balance, but most of all – more motion. Its attractive design will please all those for whom the office is not just a workplace, but also a creative living space.
Muvman is a true sit-to-stand solution. The center post offers lateral motion and a thirteen inch height adjustment range. This low impact, subtle, intuitive motion makes sitting and standing healthy, dynamic and fun.
Manufactured by aeris GmbH and sitributed by Via Seating, OYO is striking in its design and is inspired by the need for movement. OYO delivers gentle rocking and swaying to the user. OYO promotes great posture with cradle like support and the opportunity to creatively sit and which way (front to back, back to front) OYO is positioned for open plan creatively inspired spaces, thinking spaces and collaborative areas.
Nothing will move you more than the Swopper. Gone is the slouching against a chair back, resting your elbows on arm rests, and working in a fixed position for hours on end. The Swopper encourages you to gently bounce and rock both front, back and sideways – all flexing your leg muscles and improving circulation. No chair back and no arm rests mean your body will be forced to use core muscles to keep you erect, and back and shoulder muscles will now have to engage to keep your arms in writing and typing position. This is ALL GOOD people!
Increased movement while working will improve your posture, provide relief for back pain, strengthens and conditions the muscles of your back, abdomen and legs, improves nourishment to the inter-vetebral discs, improves circulation to the lower extremities, assists lymphatic flow and, heck, these chairs and stools provide a fun and energizing sitting experience!
Motion Seating by Via is now available through WRIGLEY’S. Please call us for more information.
