Office Furniture That Helps Fight Fat!
Date:1/8/2008

BRYAN, Texas, Jan. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- In 2006, 66% of Americans were overweight or obese. Did the obesity rate in America come from working in seated sedentary jobs? Or do we prefer seated sedentary jobs because 66% of us are overweight or obese? No one knows for sure, but Texas based Neutral Posture is planning to do what it can to reverse this trend. Recently, Neutral Posture introduced the Ntune(TM) Seating System, a realistic office solution to help America's ever-widening waistline lose 20 pounds in one year.

Research conducted by Jerome Congleton, PhD, PE, CPE, professor at Texas A&M University, showed that the ideal seated position for surgeons was the neutral body posture since it so clearly emulated the positive aspects of standing. "The problem is that most companies have chased the chair question for so long that they forgot to ask -- what is the ideal posture for a person performing work and should this work be done entirely seated?" asks Dr. Congleton. The answer is no, office work does not and should not be done entirely seated.

Research has proven the best solution to the static seating we are all so familiar with is to provide seating breaks to improve circulation, muscle tone, and vitality. Unfortunately, computer advancements have left us so tied to our desks that we must work at finding ways to provide our bodies the movement that it desires to keep us healthy and vibrant. By incorporating breaks we also unknowingly expend more energy (i.e. burn calories).

Mark E. Benden, PhD, CPE, leading ergonomic researcher and author of "Could You Stand To Lose? Weight Loss Secrets for Office Workers" developed the Ntune(TM) Seating System with a team of engineers, ergonomists, and designers to integrate the chair/stool design with the storage and layout potential of systems furniture for the home or office. The Ntune(TM) concept is all about raising desk heights from 30" up to 40" and then raising the chair, to stool height, allowin
