Ergotron introducing new twist on healthier movement to help Stop Diabetes

This weekend, October 13, attendees of the Diabetes EXPO in Minneapolis, MN, will be introduced to the healthy benefits of sit-stand computing, perhaps for the first time.

Hosted by the Minnesota chapter of the American Diabetes Association (ADA), the EXPO draws in roughly 8000 people, and is Minnesota’s largest event for people with diabetes, those at risk, and their family members.

The EXPO, at the Minneapolis Convention Center, is free and includes health screenings, cooking demonstrations, over 70 product and service exhibitors, as well as leading health experts talking about diabetes management, weight loss, behavior change and prevention.

Ergotron is exhibiting in booth #505, wheeling out the full-line of WorkFit sit-stand products to help spread the message that sit-stand computing, whether at home or in the office, is another way to live healthier and be more active, two key messages in the ADA’s charter.  

In the Ergotron booth, attendees can try out products, have a personal ergonomic assessment, learn about the importance of an active work style during hourly presentations of “Stand More, Sit Less,” and enter to win a WorkFit unit of their choice.

Chris Freytag, top fitness expert, will make a live appearances on the ADA’s Active Living Stage, giving attendees exercise tips for the office with a sit-stand. She will be available for questions in Ergotron’s booth between 11:15 to 12:15.  See full EXPO schedule of events.  

Keeping healthy is a choice. The Diabetes EXPO gives attendees an opportunity to learn how to eat healthy, be active, and change the future of diabetes in Minnesota and beyond. That’s something Ergotron is proud to support.

We hope to see you there!

We raise our hands, & our workstations too, to help stop diabetes!

Can active workstations make a difference in promoting a healthier lifestyle? We think so! That’s why we are supporting the Minnesota American Diabetes Association’s efforts throughout the year. Watch for Ergotron at many of the American Diabetes Association events, including the May 5th Gala where sit-stand hopefuls can bid on several Ergotron WorkFit workstations
