About

‘Are you sitting with an enemy - Your stationary Chair?’ 

"Are you Combating with a poor alternative - Your standing desk?"

 Have you ever stopped and thought about how many hours you spend sitting down daily? Have you ever thought about how harmful 'prolonged Sitting or Standing inactively' may be to your family and workforce, especially yourself?

ACCORDING TO RECENT STUDIES

12 HOURS is the amount of time the average person is sitting (aka sedentary) a day and over 80% of the workforce and schoolers are invaded by this sedentary life causing ‘Sitting Disease’ according to recent research.  

What is worse, recent studies reveals that ‘inactively long Standing ‘ can have its risks such as actual increase of bodily pain and slow-down of mental functioning. American Journal of Epidemiology recently stated that heart attack rates were twice as high for people at standing desks compared to a control group in stationery chair. 

Sitting or Standing inactively takes both a physical and emotional toll. 

Exercise doesn't reverse the harm of excessive inactivity.

  When you’re sedentary, you burn only about a calorie a minute. Being overweight or obese is a known risk factor for many common chronic diseases . But it is clear that avoiding a sit-down is difficult for many workers and students, as the daily work tasks have turned impossible to reverse or transform. 

 To make matters worse, an hour of exercise per day cannot save you from the stationary positions you have the other 23 hours during the day. Studies show that exercise won't undo the damage affected from hours of sitting.

 So, sit or stand less and actively move much more during on seat. If you simply move your body on SWINGSIT, positive things start to happen !!   

 Movement is free with SWINGSIT ~! 

  •  At home (Family)
  •  In office (workers)

HOW 'SWINGSIT' WORKS

1) It allows for simultaneous dual task(Work and Workout for better productivity).

2) Continuity of usage ( Able to keep your core effectively active with effortless power)

3) Privacy protection from ‘critical eyes’(free from prying eyes) while movement on this next generation active-sitting-chair.

 This is not something I would call budget friendly. However, you're investing in your health and a product that works.

REVIEWS

1) The reviews are positive, with users loving how the SWINGSIT helps them keep their core and waistline active while sitting "almost effortlessly.

2) Another reviewer found it to be a good remedy to their back pain.

3) Reviewers also appreciate calorie burn during Swingsitting.

  Sitting on SWINGSIT can help substantially to counter-effect the ill consequences of an obsessive sitting conduct.

If you are a long-sitter or standing-desk user and find a way to be more active while tethered to your desk, I found the SWINGSIT to be the winning option that truly works.

 As seen on

You don’t need to sacrifice comfort for activity. SWINGSIT is designed for ergonomic productivity providing all the comfort amenities of a luxury office chair with all the benefits of an active sitting chair. 

For further details

Are you looking for an alternative to your traditional office chair causing sitting disease? 

Option 1.

 Then what can be done? Recently Standing desks have come out as one option, and there are plenty choices. 

Disadvantages of Standing Desk

 However, “standing inactively even one hour costs a lot of pain.” American Journal of Epidemiology recently stated that heart attack rates were twice as high for people at standing desks compared to a control group in stationery chair.  you can’t literally stand all day long! 

 In addition “inactivity-major cause for health detriments- is still remaining standing” while standing still.

Option 2.

Then luckily there's better option: Active-Sitting-Chair.

 Active-sitting-chairs aims for a graded range of movement that activates and strengthens muscles, balances joint loads, and improves blood circulation more than you would in a normal desk chair.

Disadvantages of OLD Active-Sitting-Chairs

 However, in reality OLD Active-Sitting-Chairs(ASC) do not get much following. Shift from traditional desk chair to ASC(Active Sitting Chair) seems slow.

Why? 

 Despite the movement the OLD active-sitting-chairs inspire, people say “ASC is great for leaning and moving but not for sitting on. It is more like exercise equipment.

 Of all the options SWINGSIT is the most sensible active-sitting-chair in terms of users’ benefits with its new technology briefly summarized in the following;

  •  Old Active-Sitting-Chairs 
  •  SWINGSIT

Sitting disease is the category of invisible impairments.

 Prolonged sitting significantly increases your risk of dying - 4th leading factory of mortality from cardiovascular decay, muscular disorders, colon cancer as well as obesity and diabetes. It also causes low productivity by stress-out and thinning in the brain's medial temporal lobe and the result is poorer episodic memory — the kind which brings to mind events in one's past, study suggested.

 If you plan to combat the time you log in front of a desk with a sweaty cycling session or gym fitness class, think again. It does all sound dramatic and unrealistic. We have to admit that everyone needs to sit throughout the day, right? 

1. Apple CEO Tim Cook recently declared "sitting is the new cancer." citing many doctors’ outcomes.

2. Based on his 25 years research writes  Dr. James Levine, director of the Mayo Clinic-Arizona State University Obesity Solutions Initiative “We lose two hours of life for every hour we sit”

3. CNN reported, “Take a movement break every 30 minutes, say experts. No matter how much you exercise, sitting for long periods of time over 30 mins inactively is a risk factor for early death, a new study based on nearly 8,000 adults.

SWINGSIT has passed rigorous safety testing and quality assurance by various major furniture certification programs: BIFMA, BUREAU VERITAS, SGS, TUVR heinlad etc. 

 This aggressive offer is only available in KICKSTARTER.

‘SWINGSIT IOT Sensor’ can be simply attached to the back of SWINGSIT. The sensor allows you to check the number of swings and calorie consumption while sitting on SWINGSIT through the smartphone APP.
