The medical community has come together recently and stated that sitting long periods of time (as I do) can cause an array of dangerous medical conditions. Conditions such as type 2 diabetes, some types of cancer, heart disease and early death. The Mayo Clinic has published an article stating all the possible medical conditions (some very dangerous) that can occur from sitting long periods of time. I urge you all to read this article here.
If you sit all day long at your job (most sit 8 hours a day) you need to know the facts. If you suffer from neck and shoulder pain, leg cramps, lower back pain and sciatic issues, this can be caused by sitting in the same position for hours on end.
I was diagnosed with a 15 inch blood clot in my right leg, part of which broke off and went into my lung, back in June of 2015. I sit up to 15 hours a day blogging. I am convinced that since I had no prior medical or family history or risk factors this was the cause of my DVT and PE. I suffer with daily pain in that leg and probably will for the rest of my life because of this.
For this reason and on the advice of my doctor’s I started looking into a “standing desk” to help with the circulation in that leg. The kind folks at Ergo (after hearing my story) sent me this amazing Ergo Kangroo Pro standing desk converter. I cannot tell you what a difference this desk converter is going to make in the health of my leg. After sitting all day long I would get to bed only to have my leg throb for hours keeping me up at night. Now with the Kangroo Pro I am pain free.
The Kangroo Pro will convert from a standing position back to a sitting position with just a simple adjustment – it only takes a few seconds. Ergo products are proudly made in the USA.
