Press Release (ePRNews.com) - TORONTO - Aug 05, 2016 - Canadian entrepreneur Patrick Harrison is pleased to announce that his state-of-the-art invention the CoreChair, is now NEAT™certified. The certification comes on the cusp of what the WHO (World Health Organization) is identifying as the fourth leading risk factor for global mortality; an estimated 3.2 million deaths annually can be attributed to insufficient physical activity.Sedentary lifestyles have now become the norm, thanks to longer and busier work days that leave people tied to their desks, render them too tired to work out after work and/or with not enough time to engage in more balanced health and wellness practices throughout the day.
The CoreChair addresses the perils of prolonged sitting, with its unique postural support system and pivoting chair that focuses on the pelvis as the foundation, providing a balanced neutral sitting posture while allowing for fluid movement and pelvic rotation while you work. The movement stimulates circulation, engages and strengthens the core, stabilizes muscles, and promotes a healthy back. The adjustable resistance of the CoreChair provides you with the same benefits you might expect from an exercise ball in the gym.
NEAT™ stands forNon Exercise Activity Thermogenesis, developed and trademarked by Mayo Clinic. It refers to the energy a person burns while doing normal activities. Some NEAT™ activities can include vacuuming and gardening if you’re at home, and walking meetings, desk stretches or even fidgeting while at the office.
The science behind NEAT™ shows a decrease in expenditure of human energy through lack of movement in daily life is a contributing factor to the obesity epidemic. Even minimal activity makes a difference. To obtain NEAT™ certification, a device must undergo an institutional review board experiment and show that specific criteria have been met. In this experiment, CoreChair increased caloric burn (metabolic demand) by 20% and not surprisingly with exercise, by 150%!
