What is Sitting Disease?
The term "Sitting Disease" has been coined by the scientific community and is commonly used when referring to metabolic syndrome and the ill-effects of an overly sedentary lifestyle. However, the medical community does not recognize Sitting Disease as a diagnosable disease at this time.

Negative Effects of Sitting Disease:
According to a study done by the American Cancer Society between 1993 - 2006, men who were inactive and sat over 6 hours daily were 48% more likely to die than those who were physically active and sat less than 3 hours a day. Women who were inactive and sat over 6 hours a day were 94% more likely to die than those who were physically active and sat less than 3 hours a day.

"For people who sit most of the day, their risk of heart attack is about the same as smoking."
~ Martha Grogan, cardiologist, Mayo Clinic

"Prolonged sitting should be considered within occupational health and safety policies and practices just like other elements of posture."
~ British Journal of Sports Medicine

"Today, our bodies are breaking down from obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes, cancer, depression, and the cascade of health ills and everyday malaise that come from what scientists have named sitting disease."
~ James Levine, MD, PhD"

Customer Reviews

Just a timer

Does not give notification of when to stretch. Also, it only has a list of stretches and exercises that you can choose from. Would benefit from having proper notification of break times and a series of activities to perform at those times.
