Sedentarism or Sedentary Behaviour is one of the modern office workers greatest health risks.  Sedentarism significantly increases the risk of slipped disks, cardiovascular disease, obesity and diabetes.

The Perfect Companion for Sit-to-Stand Desks

The Steppie is a balance board that enables users to stand at a Sit-to-Stand Desks more comfortably by encouraging minimal movement, which is less tiring than standing still.  Standing for extended periods can be very tiring but the Steppie makes it easier to stand for longer periods. 

The Body is Made to Move

When we stay still for long periods of time, our body starts to ache.  Modern behaviour has us sitting for longer periods each day, be it eating meals, commuting by train or car and watching TV.  Add to this working in front of a computer for up to 8 hours, the body begins to suffer.

Steppie in MotionThe Steppie Keeps You Moving

Standing for extended periods can be very tiring.  The Steppie enables you to stand at a height adjustable desk more comfortably.  The slightest body movement such as reaching for something or looking to one side causes the Steppie to tip, thus activating the body's core in order to maintain balance.

The body finds slight amounts of movement less tiring than standing still.  Standing on a Steppie is all about balance.  When standing on a Steppie, with your feet in line with your hips, any slight movement causes the Steppie to move.  Your muscles and core will work to stabilise and rebalance your body.  Each one of these movements increases muscle use and N.E.A.T. output.

The Steppie Keeps You N.E.A.T

Using a see-saw motion that is easy to master, the simplicity of the Steppie design is equalled only by the benefits of using the board.

When we stay still for long periods of time, our body starts to ache.  Modern behaviour has us sitting for long periods each day, be it eating meals, commuting by train or car and watching TV.  Add working in front of a computer for up to 8 hours, the body begins to suffer.  To counteract the effects of a sedentary lifestyle, it is recommeded that office workers stand while working at their computers.  This increases their N.E.A.T.  Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis) (N.E.A.T.) is the energy you use by simply moving around during the day.  It is these movements that counteract Sedentarism.  Sedantarism or Sedentary Behaviour is one of the modern office workers greatest health risks.  Sedentarism significantly increases the risk of slipped disks, cardiovascular disease, obesity and diabetes.

The Steppie Works with the Whole Body

One of the developers of the Steppie, Gitte Toft, a trained acupuncturist, reflexologist and masseur has advised the following about Steppie:

When first used, it's normal to feel fatigue all over the body, this means that you are using your muscles and increasing your N.E.A.T. output.  Start with half an hour at a time, so your body can get used to the extra work.  Some people can feel warmer feet, it is healthy and comes because of the increased blood circulation.  Finding balance of Steppie also encourages proper posture, which works that muscles in the core, back, shoulders and neck.  The design of the Steppie makes all of this movement instinctual and natural that you don't reallise you are doing it, Steppie makes it easy to stand longer.
