Why Muvman Is the Ultimate Standing Desk Chair
“Sitting is the new smoking,” “Sitting for long periods of time at work can take years off of your life,” “Static sitting contributes to chronic disease.” These are just some of the headlines that have raised awareness to the dangers of sitting behind a desk in front of a computer all day.
The answer for many people is: If sitting is bad, I will stand. Height adjustable desks are the rage. The problem is, there are issues with standing all day long as well…
- It loads up on your joints
- It can contribute to foot issues like plantar fasciitis
- You can get into bad standing postures aggravating issues in your hips and back
- Your heart has to work extra hard to fight gravity and get blood to your brain
Muvman is the ultimate solution for people that buy height adjustable desks. It is a perching chair. First of all, it has a range of 20” to 33” inches tall. This allows you to go all the way from a sitting position to almost standing with having enough weight on the chair to take the load off your joints while allowing a full range of motion.
Muvman allows you to work at any of the heights in-between, so you can use the full range of motion of the desk and not just be stuck with sitting or standing. When you want to stand, Muvman only weighs 13lbs so you can simply lift it out of the way under the desk. When you have a normal office chair with a standing desk, it is in the way when you want to stand, and it takes up a large footprint.
Disease doesn’t happen overnight. It is the cumulative effect of lifestyle choices over time. Sitting for 8+ hours a day, day after day, is not good and reduces circulation, reduces the amount of oxygen you take in and have in your bloodstream that goes to your brain, and slows your metabolism to practically zero. Having an active office with a height adjustable desk and a Muvman is committing to a healthy lifestyle that will improve your calorie burn, give you more energy, and increase your productivity.
