Sitting is bad for your health

But why is sitting down all day bad for my health ?

When you are sitting passively, at work for example, your heartbeat slows, which reduces blood flow to the underused muscles and limbs, and your brain receives less oxygen than if you were active.

The calories you do not consume are stored as fat (about 100 calories/hour).

Thermal images taken before and after 30 minutes of sitting illustrate what happens – your body temperature falls, reflecting a reduction in your circulation and muscular effort.

How does it work?

The principle behind the eveia Active Footrest

The eveia Active Footrest solution incorporates a flywheel connected to an activity tracking and management app.

To operate the active footrest, all you have to do is place your feet on the pedals and make small circular movements. Thanks to the built-in technology, you just have to maintain this regular movement unconsciously, gently and steadily to exercise all those muscles that are not used when you are sitting passively.

A spot of relaxation? Choose the easiest difficulty level. Feeling more sporty ? Increase the difficulty.

You can also increase the resistance of the movement at any time to personalise the response.

On average, you can burn 100 to 150 calories an hour.

You can track your activity and monitor your progress with the coaching app.

Do your 10,000 steps sitting down.

The muscles used are:

  • quadriceps and hamstrings
  • brain
  • lumbar muscles
  • calves
  • abdominal muscles
  • buttocks

But does it really work ?

A study has analysed the impact of using an active footrest for 50 minutes a day on the health and well-being of sedentary workers.

In conclusion : Light physical activity at work improves employees’ health and productivity.

Sedentary lifestyles

Lack of everyday activity affects everyone

It is generally accepted that sitting for five hours a day is a good basic definition of sedentariness. And you’re not alone – according to the WHO, 31% of the world’s population is affected by this modern plague, which is already being compared to smoking in terms of public health impact.

Worldwide, daily inactivity already results in over 3.2 million deaths a year. The primary symptom of our sedentary lifestyles is weight gain. On average, we spend 12 hours a day sitting down and not moving, and nothing is being done to improve the situation.

The effects of our sedentary lives in the medium to long term :

Costs governments 67.5 billion

Including 13.7 in lost productivity

Kills more people than smoking

Over 3.2 million victims/year
including 60,000 in France

Generates stress, weight gain, anxiety

10 hours of inactivity = 34% rise in mortality

Increases the risk of diseases

Type 2 diabetes, hypertension, stroke, cancer (colon, lungs, endometrium)
