Life is motion and the more you move, the healthier you will be.

Sitting is the new smoking” is quoted day in and day out in the media. Research continues to be published documenting all the detrimental effects of sitting on the job including increased risk of high blood pressure, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and even cancer.

I’m constantly talking and demonstrating to my patients how to sit correctly and how to use the features of their ergonomic desk chair correctly. The problem is that sitting is static and even the best ergonomic desk chairs keep you locked in one position. Standing desks are popular, but standing in one place all day is not good for you either. Life is motion and the more you move, the healthier you will be.

The future of sitting has finally arrived! It is called the Ariel active chair by QOR360 (designed by a surgeon). These chairs have a unique, patented rocking mechanism that keeps you moving, engages your core, and puts you in good postural alignment with your head over your shoulders and proper lumbar lordosis. As a chiropractor, I recommend an active chair as the best type of chair for your body and health.

Sitting on a QOR360 chair takes a little getting used to. You can’t just sit down for five seconds and experience it. It is recommended that you sit for at least a minute or two and feel how your body reacts. It encourages, almost requires, that you sit on your “sit bones”(or ischial tuberosities to be anatomically correct). Once you get used to sitting on an Ariel chair, you’ll never want to go back to a regular chair.

Active vs. Passive

The opposite of sitting isn’t standing—it’s moving.

Written by Dr. Turner Osler, CEO, QOR360

Humans are designed to move. Indeed, for at least three million years, people lived as hunter gatherers, foraging, running after prey, running from predators, remaining fairly active all day, every day. So it was an immense change when, about 100 years ago, farming became mechanized and the majority of workers sat down at desk jobs. This was an unplanned experiment on a massive scale and, unfortunately, it hasn’t gone well.
