Putting together Productivity, Professionalism and Health for you at your Workplace
Sharing words by our Founder, Kei Kei Chan
"Sitting is the New Smoking."
"Sit less, Move More." is what the American Heart Association encourages all of us to do.
EKOBOR was founded by a devoted mother of a pair of lovely boy-girl twins. During her pregnancy, she learned the potential harm of long sitting hours at work that can cause to her spine and her babies’ development. "Why do we have to sit down and work all the time? I feel much more energetic and less muscle pain when I’m using the SIT-STAND DESK." She suggested.In Denmark, over 90% of office workers have a sit-stand desk. If a job requires someone to sit 2 or more hours each day at a desk, it must (in Denmark) be a sit-stand desk.
The new health working trend is spreading rapidly internationally.
A lot of companies are initiating in taking the lead to equip their offices for a better working environment and to retain talents under Employee Benefits Programs. We would like people to also make a choice to work and live a healthier life. Many users like standing desks so much that they decided to have one installed at home too. Exercising and having a good diet is NO LONGER enough to reduce any health risks. We need to move more.
We spend a lot of time sitting during in most of our days, we sit when we commute to work, we sit working, we sit eating, and we sit when watching TV. How much % during the day do we really spend even moving? 8 hours for sleep, 2-hour communing, 3 hours spent on eating….8 hours at work…2 hours TV. Healthy blood circulations depend on consistent and regular physical activity as well as diet. How are we going to get a healthy body if we spend time sitting most of the day? Exercise is no longer enough to reduce all kinds of cancer risks and prevent us from getting sick even with a healthy diet.
Standing desk for the long-term health of our future generations.
Children sitting too much: Too much screen time, TV and video games
Kids ages 8-18, an additional 7 HOURS A DAY in front of a screen, regardless of socioeconomic status
Sit-Stand Desk should probably be introduced from a young age – School context
If Standing desk can be for Adults, then why can't it be for children and students at school? Our vision is to drive standing desks to be the future trend of working. Just like brushing your teeth.
