Your Personal Coach
Standing improves our posture, increases blood flow, tones our muscles and reduces stress. It also burns more calories. So why do we not stand up more during the day?
When your average sitting time is more than 15 hours a day, the task of reducing this time to 13 hours seems achievable — but not always easy.
Integrating 15 minutes into each hour is a great goal, but it is a true behavioural challenge to override the learned sedentary behaviour that so many of us have adopted. Therefore, you should consider an adjustable desk with a personal coach.
The LINAK Wellness Switch
This tool is designed to help you engage with your sit-stand desk. This control will switch on wellness by reminding you to stand. It will track the minutes you stand throughout the day and convert those minutes into calories burned. If your goal is to stand six times a day, you can see that information too.
Watch these instructional videos on operating the Wellness Switch:
- Setting the desk height
- Setting the stand point
- Setting your weight
- Setting the calorie and minute function
- Setting the alarm
