Our bodies are made to move. A Varier sit-stand chair follows every move you make, each chair in our sit-stand category strengthens your core and back muscles, helping you maintain a natural, upright posture.
At the breakfast counter, desk, table, or even while painting or playing the piano, the versatile Move is the perfect chair for you. Truly intuitive, the Move chair has a slightly rounded base, which tilts the chair in smooth, gentle movements. The saddle seat supports an upright, dynamic posture, which activates and strengthens core muscles in the abdomen and back. With feet placed on the floor, it’s easy to balance and stabilize, or tilt, pivot, or rotate 360°. The open angle between the upper and lower body improves circulation, boosting energy levels and concentration.
Glow tracks, monitors and inspires. When you sit, the tracker captures your every move and visually displays your sitting activity in the for of a circle. The longer you sit, the larger the circle, and the more you move, the stronger the circle glows.Glow inspires you to develop healthy sitting habits, and provides encouraging feedback to help you understand the benefits of active sitting. You can also track your calorie consuption while sitting, and the app connects with your other iOS Health apps.
Consistent movement throughout the day, however small or inconsequential it might seem, can add up to big health benefits. It was this simple idea that inspired Mayo Clinic to coin the term NEAT™ or Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis. The study looked at 30 individuals of varying age, body type, and gender, and compared their activity on a Move as compared to a traditional offi ce chair. The test results showed that using a Varier Move increased thermogenesis (caloric burn). As a result, the Varier Move is now NEAT™ certified.
NEAT™ describes the body’s energy expended when not at the gym, not out biking or running, and not scaling Mt. Everest. In other words, NEAT™ is a measure of the effect of the activity that comprises the majority of a person’s typical day. The higher someone’s NEAT™, the more calories they’re burning. Over time, high NEAT™ behaviors and choices can add up to real improvements in cardiovascular health, help with weight loss, and improve overall health.
It doesn’t take much to increase your individual NEAT™ or the NEAT™ of large groups of individuals. An ambling 7-minute walk after lunch, choosing to stand at your desk for part of your workday, walking to the SECOND closest bathroom, far parking, or (as shown by a recent study) using a Varier Move are all easy ways to increase NEAT™. Put these small, simple changes in action every day, and you have a compelling health plan for the non-exercise part of your day. Do this every day, week, and year, and you can reap significant health benefits over time.
