Do you sit at your desk for hours at a time at work every day? Hours of sitting for long periods of time can often lead to health problems such as back pain and impaired efficiency. The best way to counteract these problems is to be more active. One way to increase activity while sitting is through active-dynamic sitting. This is when you prevent yourself from staying in one position for too long as you sit.
Using an air-filled balance cushion is a great way to keep active while sitting as it engages core muscles and forces you to move as you sit. With its line of air-filled Dynair® wedges and cushions, TOGU® products not only enable active-dynamic sitting, but also effectively enables exercises that can be integrated into everyday life.
Whether you are at work, at school, at home or in the car, active-dynamic sitting is an effective way of relieving tension and back pain. Dynair® wedges and cushions help to keep muscles and intervertebral discs moving, which in turn relieves any strain on the back and stabilizes your spine. In addition, by sitting on an inflatable wedge you can improve the interaction between nervous and muscular systems. You can also improve coordination, joint stability and movement.
Compared to sitting on rigid pads, inflatable Dynair® wedges and cushions strengthen abdominal and back muscles. You won’t even notice your exercising because as you sit you don’t look like your moving. The minimal movements involved in dynamic sitting train your muscles involuntarily. This creates a stable sitting feeling, yet you gain the benefits of balance training.
Dynair® wedges and cushions can be used anywhere you sit and come in many different sizes so you can find the best one that fits you. They can be used on both sides. On select models a soft nubby side allows for a back massage. Use a wedge to tilt your hips slightly forward to maintain an upright and healthy posture. The cushion gives even more of a balance challenge, but it is just as effective as the wedge. Whichever one you choose, both TOGU® products can help you stay active while you sit.
