Akron, Ohio (PRWEB) May 28, 2013
As many workers have experienced, long-term sitting can be a major contributor to lower back pain, neck and shoulder pain, and other health problems.
According to the Mayo Clinic website, researchers have linked extended periods of sitting with a number of health problems, including obesity. Now doctors are confirming that too much sitting can also lead to an early grave.
"Too much sitting also seems to increase the risk of death from cardiovascular disease and cancer," writes the Mayo Clinic's Dr. James Levine. Americans spend half their waking day at a desk. The prolonged sitting leads to the development visceral fat, which generates unhealthy inflammatory cytokines doctors say.
Until now there wasn’t much a busy office worker could do to escape the constant demands facing them every day at their work desk. Stand-up desks are ergonomically designed for virtually anyone who has to do a great deal of work at their desk. Stand Up for Your Health by choosing the alternative to sitting--stand for part of the day. The stand-up desk user finds tremendous relief from the pressure created on the lower back from too much sitting.
"Back in 1770 Thomas Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence at a stand-up desk he himself made," explains Akron, Ohio businessman Jim Gattuso. "I became interested in stand-up desks because of my chronic back pain, and I thought who better to help me bring back this great idea than my Amish friends who make furniture? Their furniture-making craftsmanship dates back to colonial times using old world techniques, producing furniture that’s built to last forever."
