Do contradictory research study results ever frustrate you? First we hear, for example, that butter is bad for us and then, just a few years later, people are adding it to their coffee for its supposed health benefits. It can be confusing to know what’s really true in a world where “facts” are continually changing. We’d like to point out a notable exception. A large and growing number of credible research projects are all reaching the same indisputable conclusion: sitting all day is bad for human health.
Now you can read the research in one, easy to digest place. Our new, free white paper, “Why Movement Matters,” by Carrie Schmitz, AOEAS, CHC, Ergotron’s Sr. Manager of Human Factors and Ergonomic Research, summarizes the latest research findings and makes a compelling case for investment in movement-friendly environments. Best of all, the research finds direct and strong correlations between even minor changes in sitting behavior and health benefits.
