SWIMMING IS THE NEW STANDING
Employees in your organization who have already converted to a standing desk can tell you: the proper question isn’t “Why” but “Why not?” Studies have shown that reducing the time you spend seated makes you less likely to die of a heart attack and extends your life expectancy. But stationary standing may not be the answer since that can lead to spinal compression, enlarged veins, and edema. As an alternative, some have turned to treadmill desks, but for people with joint pain or arthritis, that isn’t an option.
That’s why we invented the Swim Desk. The latest product from our GeekLabs division, the Swim Desk gives you a low-impact alternative for obtaining the health benefits of a standing desk while at work. Swimming builds endurance and cardiovascular fitness while providing an all-over body workout, plus it’s fun! With our Swim Desk, you can set the speed of the artificial current so it’s appropriate to your current task. Employees report that the aquatic environment helps them think outside the box and stay in the flow. And companies that have added our Swim Desk as an option for their employees report lower health care insurance premiums. Take the plunge today!
