When Sittingym was barely a concept in the inventors’ mind, we researched in-home exercising equipment.  Specifically, we examined equipment would keep seniors’ physically active with the least amount of impact of their joints.  Multiple experts have written about benefits of in-home exercises however, it seems that appropriate devices were not been created until now.

The following is a excerpt from The British Heart Foundation within its Heart Matters Magazine.

‘If you have difficulty standing or walking, it doesn’t mean exercise is out of the question.’  Professor Patrick Doherty, Chair in Cardiovascular Health at the University of York, offers suggestions of chair-based exercises.

Professor Doherty continued ‘We all know that being physically active is good for us, but not everyone can take part in activities like walking, cycling or aerobic classes.  If that’s the case for you, but you want to keep active, then chair-based exercise could be just what you’re looking for.

You can use these exercises if you have trouble getting up and about, or even if you just want a change of activity on days you can’t get outdoors.

If you have a health condition, check with your GP before you start.

Chair-based exercise can be done at home…. and is easy to fit into your daily routine.

Even a small amount of activity can be a tremendous boost to our wellbeing and help you to tone and strengthen.  So why not give it a go?  You might be surprise at how good it makes you feel.’
