In the Autumn 2016 edition of the WNiF magazine, we provided some alarming statistics about the dangers of prolonged sitting on health, courtesy of InMovement.
InMovement is a Productive Wellbeing™ company, officially launching at The Wellness Show in Sydney, 1 to 3 April 2016.
In addition to their booth (#74), InMovement will present a session to introduce thousands of attendees to the concept of Productive Well-Being and how small movement can lead to big changes. Our mission is to return movement to the workday through products and services designed exclusively to unite productivity and well-being. By blending healthy behavior with daily job function, we can remove the barriers to workday movement and improve physical well-being, reduce aches and pains, and increase energy.
On display will be InMovement’s core suite of products which includes the Elevate DeskTop™ DT2 of adjustable height work surfaces, the InMovement™ TreadMill Desk, and the Integrate™ line of workplace accessories such as anti-fatigue mats and calf blocks.
Adam White, National Brand Manager of InMovement, says, “The workplace has forced desk-workers to operate in unhealthy conditions that immobilise us. You shouldn’t have to choose between earning a living and living healthy— you can do both. We’ve created products and services that re-engineer the workplace to support light movement throughout the day, which combats the harm of all day sitting. Prolonged sitting has been connected to a range of health problems, from heart disease and diabetes to physical pain and even depression. The compounding effects of working in a sedentary environment cannot be undone through short burst of daily exercise, and ultimately end up costing our businesses in healthcare expenses and through loss of productivity.”
InMovement has been supporting customer engagements over the past year, with Fortune 100 companies, law firms, small private businesses and wellness companies looking for new ways to blend well-being into the workplace. Through its trials, InMovement has collected user feedback on its Productive Wellbeing approach that showed significant increases in energy and productivity, with reductions in stress, pain, discomfort and absenteeism. Employees also reported increased job satisfaction and an influence on other healthy behaviours as a result of working differently.
To complement its line of innovative products, InMovement provides customers with a comprehensive education curriculum that helps employees understand the dangers of a sedentary lifestyle and the importance of working differently. The company also coordinates the necessary product implementation and employee training, working with business leadership to support culture change initiatives that reinforce total workplace adoption.
Visit InMovement: 1 to 3 April 2016. Booth #74, The Wellness Show, Horden Pavilion & Royal Hall of Industries, Sydney.
