Convert your sit stand solution to
Sit, stand and move healthy solution!

 

Time to stand up!
Excessive sitting every day has the chance of expediting the development of “Western diseases” and thus shortening life expectancy. This is why we should pay more attention to preventing the health damages of sitting down at the workplace as well. Read more about the solutions and adopt the ones that you think are best suited for yourself. Sitting down has a negative effect on your quality of life.

Perils of sitting down
Many researchers over the world state that making sitting down at work less popular would have a beneficial effect on national health. The revolution of using small, everyday choices for improving your health requires changes at the workplace as well. The right kind of lifestyle guidance can help reduce the health disadvantages of sitting down, but it is even more crucial to make decisive changes to the underlying structures of people’s working life.

The Gymba board
Most people stand up the wrong way, alternating be- tween their left and right leg. Their spine is askew and their ankles in an incorrect position. Standing up like this can be detrimental rather than being healthy. This is why it is important to pay attention to your posture. By using Gymba, you can make sure you always have the correct posture.




Why Gymba? Some of the benefits:

Prolonged sitting is not good for our metabolism. It increases the risk of obesity, type 2 diabetes, metabolic syndrome, fatty liver, cardiovascular diseases, selected cancers and premature death. Breaking up sitting by standing and moving (e.g. every 30, 40 or 60 mins) is good for health. Standing on a hard floor may easily cause pain in feet and lower extremities preventing us from standing. GYMBA provides a platform that is easier, smoother and more comfortable​ to stand on, making standing a more tempting option.

While sitting our energy consumption is close to the resting metabolic state (1-1.5 METs). Standing up is already more energy consuming (with 25-50%), and by using GYMBA one can potentially increase energy consumption even more, and for longer periods.

Constant and prolonged standing is not good for our physiology either, as it may reduce venous blood flow from the lower extremities, increasing the risk of varicose veins, oedema and thrombosis. GYMBA, by allowing natural movements in lower extremities while standing improves the muscular pump action and venous blood flow.

Standing up for a longer time may not feel comfortable, especially in the beginning. As GYMBA is more convenient to stand on, it allows more prolonged and more comfortable standing sessions and can make an individual choose standing more often over sitting.

Poor muscular support of the mid torso and hips, and lower extremity muscle hypertension are often a cause for spinal structure overstrain (e.g. in muscles, joints, ligaments and intervertebral discs). Activating these muscles by GYMBA potentially improves blood circulation and metabolism in these structures reducing the risk of chronic back problems.

Individuals with more acute or chronic back problems are known to benefit from small bodily movements and position changes, and they are recommended over plain rest. GYMBA provides an easy and safe way to help this. Many individuals with spinal problems have experienced reduction in back pain while using GYMBA.

Prolonged standing may cause strain and back and lower extremity muscle aches. Controlled improvement of core muscle strength is important for any disease of the spine. The two-dimensional movement of GYMBA has the potential to improve the motion and use of muscles in the whole back, but also in the hip area, and to improve the muscular core and hip control.

Static positions are never good, whether sitting or standing. Using GYMBA’s functionality to its full potential by turning it in different positions, GYMBA allows movement in various ways and directions. It also works as a leg support and provides stretching help.

An adjustable working desk alone does not necessarily increase time spent standing unless it feels good. GYMBA is a simple add-on tool next to the standing desk.
