Sitting All Day is Killing Us, Altwork Has the Solution

It turns out God’s design wasn’t for us to sit in a cubicle all day.  Shocking, I know.  A study published in the journal, Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise concluded that those who sit for most of the day were 54% more likely to die of heart attacks, even if they exercised regularly and were non-smokers.

A few different remedies have come to life.  Stand-up desks (yes a work desk you must stand at) are becoming more popular.  I’ve even seen desks with built in treadmills.  At an old job of mine we were once given big exercise balls to sit on, encouraged by our forward thinking manager that they would not only be healthier, but would keep us awake.treadmill-desk

Now a new cutting edge solution has surfaced from the minds of the good people at Altwork.  With both health and productivity in mind, they are looking to “redefine how your computer and workstation work with you”.

Their website states:

After five years of engineering and over $1M of founder and angel investment, Altwork has launched a pre-order campaign to finance additional tooling and development needed to scale production of the world’s first workstation designed for high-intensity computer users. The response from all over the country and the world has been gratifying and nothing less than extraordinary.

We invite you to pre-order now to lock in substantial savings and earliest delivery.

Watch the video and let me know in the comments if you think this would make you more productive!
