‘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
1. how many hours you spend sitting down daily? and
2. how harmful 'prolonged Sitting or Standing inactively' may be ?
ACCORDING TO RECENT STUDIES
1. 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.
2. 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.
So in conclusion Sitting or Standing inactively takes both a physical and emotional toll.
What about exercise? When sedentary, you burn only about a calorie a minute, and only 8 calorie while standing inactively. No significant difference. Being overweight or obese is a known risk factor for many common chronic diseases .
Nevertheless it is clear that avoiding a sit-down(inactivity) is difficult for many workers and students, as the daily work tasks have turned impossible to reverse or transform.
To make matters worse, even if you practice the habit of exercising regularly, an hour of exercise per day cannot save you from the stationary positions you have the other 23 hours during the day.

For further details
Are you looking for an alternative to your traditional office chair causing sitting disease?
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.
In addition “inactivity - major cause for health detriments still remains standing” while standing still.
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.
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.”

- Comparison between SWINGSIT and Old active-sitting-chairs
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 for 7 years.
