GymGym: The World's First Ergonomic Exercise Chair

From BeSportier

Working out while working is a bonus, you have the Treadmill-Desk, which all business should at least give their employees the option to have instead of a desk and chair. Now if you are going to have a chair well, GymGym is the option.

In today’s business climate, the average working adult will spend a minimum of eight hours a day seated at a desk in front of a computer. This stressful working climate is taking its toll on our health and well being.

Most people are never taught the proper seating posture and physically correct routines needed to avoid the repetitious movements that continually keep our bodies out of their proper alignment. The results cause a variety of chronic and acute physical health challenges including aches, pains and muscle stiffness that can over time grow into more serious problems, including:

1. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
2. Spinal Stenosis
3. Spondylosthesis
4. Generalized Disk Disease

The inactivity of remaining in a seated position throughout the day causes our muscles to weaken, our bones to thin and our limbic system (responsible for the body’s immunity to illness) to become sluggish and inefficient. Hours of sitting slows blood flow and can result in the formation of blood clots, known as deep vein thrombosis.

What affects the body also affects the mind. Prolonged physical discomfort results in increased mental stress, which can disrupt concentration, inhibits creativity and negatively affects our performance.

The solution? Gymygym - the world’s first ergonomic exercise chair designed for our modern lives.

What is ergonomics?

Ergonomics is the science of designing objects and tools to conform and work with the human body rather than against it.

And while the current crop of ergonomically designed office chairs represent an improvement over traditionally designed chairs, even with adjustments, their "one size fits all" approach represents outdated technology.

Until now.

The Future of Seating Technology

Because no two bodies are alike, the Gymygym’s patented flat bungee seating system is designed to specifically conform to you, the user, providing the perfect combination of give and support where you need it most while helping to eliminate the very serious physical issues caused from prolonged improper seating.

The custom constructed Gymygym Ergonomic Exercise Office Chair correctly positions the body to:

1. Relieve pressure on hips, lower back, neck and shoulders
2. Improve circulation
3. Promote proper alignment of the spine
