Data from a panel discussion at SxSWi 2013:
We all know the sad truth: the majority of working Americans are chained to their desks – namely, their computer screens – for eight hours per day and the “massive” obesity epidemic persists. Recent research suggests that sitting is killing people and the industry continues to debate the harmful health effects stemming from sedentary lifestyles, with many arguing that technology is only adding fuel to the fire. So if sitting is killing us, then can mobile save us? Forget traditional wellness programs - the healthiest workplace is one where employees are actively mobile.

Hosted by Sharon Mandler, VP, Senior Digital Strategist of Saatchi & Saatchi Wellness, this session will bring together a group of leading health experts who will challenge old thinking about healthy workplaces and take a deep dive into the new technologies and devices that are coming to the rescue and mobilizing America’s workforce.

  • femelmed context communication consulting llc at context communication consulting llc Chris, excellent point. Personally, I wobble on a stability ball a good part of the day. Nothing like being on a 'hoppity hop' while working.

    I was delighted to be part of this conversation and look forward to continuing it.

  • ChrisLeonhard Chris Leonhard I love that presentation! Really nicely done and very convincing! The only thing I would add is that it's not sitting that is bad for you, it's sitting STILL (just ask anyone that just biked 100 miles). That's no trivial distinction: There are good reasons to sit: It keeps your upper body stable for desk work (typing and mousing) and steadies your eyes for reading. Note that none of these seated work activties involve your legs, which you are free to move while sitting - if you have the right technology, such as a seated active motion work station, e.g. a LifeBalance Station. 1 year ago
