Everyone is starting to awaken to the realization that the 8 hours of the day we are sitting still is slowly, but surely, killing us. To address this issue, we have compiled a list of options currently on the market that try to address what scientist are calling the "Sitting Disease".
The number of passengers traveling by air passing has reached record heights in 2015 by transporting over 2 billion souls. Sedentary air travel is more dangerous than when you’re at the office sitting around due to the environmental and physiological changes that occur during routine commercial flights that can lead to mild hypoxia and gas expansion. These changes exacerbate chronic medical conditions or incite acute in-flight medical events.
