What's Wrong with the Chair?

laptopbeefsoutlinepeople1
Prolonged sitting in a right angle position (static sitting) is bad for your health--proven by researchers to cause these problems:
  • Loss of electrical activity in muscles which leads to a cascade of metabolic problems.
  • Slouching, fatigue, loss of circulation.
  • Diminishes the natural curve of the spine which compresses vertebral disks in lumbar.
  • Loss of muscle tone and weight gain.
  • Inflammation, joint stress, and repetitive use injury.
  • Loss of productivity.
 
The Stand Up Sit Down Eco Desk™ is one of our FOUR ALTERNATIVES to sitting: For more see Laptop Ergonomics: Footloose and Chairfree
 
  • Sit Down OR Stand Up, depending on your energy level/prefereces at the time. Easily transition to different positions.
Some Health Effects of Prolonged Sitting: (Excerpt from New York Times article)
 
This is your body on chairs:
 
1-- Electrical activity in the muscles drops and 'the muscles go as silent as those of a dead horse,'
2-- Leading to a cascade of harmful metabolic effects.
3-- Your calorie-burning rate immediately plunges to about one per minute, a third of what it would be if you got up and walked.
4-- Insulin effectiveness drops within a single day.
5-- The risk of developing Type 2 diabetes rises. So does the risk of being obese.
6-- The enzymes responsible for breaking down lipids and triglycerides responsible for vacuuming up fat out of the bloodstream plunge
7-- Which in turn causes the levels of good (HDL) cholesterol to fall.

* Standing up solves the ergonomic problems of desk work, stimulates creativity, takes up less space than a standard desk.

* Normally laptop computers are exceptionally hard on the back, neck, wrists, and eyes because the keyboard, mouse and screen are at the same level.

This means that normally when using a laptop, one has to either stoop to see the screen, or raise the hands to use keyboard and mouse.

The Eco-desk™ solves these age-old ergonomic problems, taking the ergonomic downfalls of the laptop, and turns the laptop computer into a viable alternative to all day use as one's sole computer. Whether using a laptop or a standard computer with CPU, this stand up work station has a separate shelf for the screen, mouse and keyboard. The shelf with the mouse also works as a nice writing surface as well.

Sitting down is no longer a requirement for computer use!

The Eco-desk™ makes these creative activities more enjoyable because the stress of chair sitting is alleviated. Inspiration comes easier when breathing is deeper and unrestricted. Also, if your job requires you get up and down a lot, there will be no more of the 'down' part.

This earth-friendly, compact shelf is the perfect addition to any non-toxic office or home.

Built from recycled wood (Medex) and finished with non-toxic finish, the sleek Eco-desk™ knocks down and assembles in 5 minutes without any tools.
