THE SEDENTARY LIFESTYLE
Sitting has famously been labeled the ‘new smoking’, and unfortunately, we spend over 9 hours a day sitting…Sitting is so dangerous that it is speculated to increase risk of death by up to 40%.
The negative effects of sitting can be significantly mitigated by training your body to sit right. This is where UpRight comes in, designed specially to make sitting comfortable and training simple.
All you have to do is sit while wearing UpRight for 15min to an hour a day, and you will be able to sit upright all day, every day.

- 60% of employees are convinced they would be more productive if they could work on their feet.
- 149 million work-days are lost every year due to back-pain.

Sitting upright is crucial to making your sitting life healthier and your office life better. UpRight integrates seamlessly into the office, made specially to suit your lifestyle and sitting habits
YOU ARE MORE PRODUCTIVE WHEN YOU ARE UPRIGHT
Sitting upright makes you more alert, concentrated, and efficient. When you slouch, your body takes in as much as 30% less oxygen than you’d take in with good posture. This means that when you slouch, it is much harder to keep your energy up.
Posture is so key to efficiency and performance that the Occupational Safety and Health Administration of the U.S. Department of Labor includes ergonomics as an important tool for reducing workplace injury and ensuring high productivity.
Training with UpRight allows you to maintain a posture that is healthy and comfortable. In no time, maintaining a good sitting posture will be an effortless task!
