You’ll be sitting pretty and avoiding strains and pains when you make the Sissel Sitfit active sitting cushion part of your day
So many of us lead sedentary lifestyles today, spending all day sitting in chairs whether it’s at home or at the office. Sitting in the same position for hours at a time is absolutely terrible for your body, causing strain and weakening the muscles in your back, core and legs from lack of use as you slouch against the back of your seat. Lower back pain is a leading causes for time off work and can be completely debilitating, leaving you unable to do anything but lie in bed. There has been a recent trend for standing desks, but these can end up creating similar problems as you end up stiff and sore from being stood up in the same position. Making sure your position shifts regularly is the key. The concept of ‘active sitting’ is becoming more and more popular for treating and preventing bad posture and muscle pain.
Active sitting involves the use of seating that encourages flexibility and movement, thus engaging your muscles and keeping them strong and supple. Sissel have developed a revolutionary and adaptable way of helping you to do this with their Sitfit balance trainer. When you place the Sitfit on your chair, it gently supports your buttocks and spine in a way that will force you to sit correctly without feeling uncomfortable. When sitting on the Sitfit cushion, you’ll feel your spine having to straighten up and support you as it’s supposed to. Over time this will strengthen the muscles in your back and helps you to subconsciously sit correctly all the time, you won't even need to think about it - it will just become second nature to you. The Sitfit can be placed on any chair and is easy to take with you anywhere, making it a great alternative for the bulky, embarrassing looking gym balls that people often use for active sitting.
Sitfit is not just for sitting on! It comes with a poster that shows you how to do a series of simple exercises that will further strengthen your spine, back, core, leg and feet muscles. For example, by standing on your Sitfit and rolling back and forth on your feet, you can coordinate your foot muscles and improve your balance. Kneeling on the Sitfit while doing push-ups will improve your form and help you to keep your back straight while you work your shoulder and arm muscles. This smaller size of Sitfit is also recommended for children – it has been shown to help restless sitters and those with ADHD or dyspraxia to concentrate while doing homework or in the classroom. For a larger surface area, check out the Sissle SitFit Plus which has a bigger cushion with thigh supports.
Available in stylish blue or black, Sitfit comes in either 33 or 36 cm circumference depending on your requirements. You can adjust the level of cushion for your comfort using a standard sports needle pump. Sitfit is latex and phthalate-free, helping you to avoid allergens and toxins while you improve your body.
