The SOLID INFINITY SYSTEM is a risk appropriate form of construction and development practice improvement. One panel in your office space will meet occupational health and safety requirements and address the sedentary behaviour epidemic.
With the development of more advanced technology, modern life has become less active and more sedentary. We know a great deal about moderate to vigorous physical activity and the beneficial effects it has on health. Now the focus is being shifted to activities on the lower part of the intensity spectrum, specifically, the sedentary and the light activity. Too much sitting may be harmful to health, regardless of whether or not you meet physical activity guidelines.
Prolonged sitting linked with higher risk of:
• Mortality from all-causes
• Being overweight or obese, gaining weight
• Metabolic syndrome
• Type 2 diabetes
• Heart disease
• Some types of cancer
Sitting time is an emerging health risk and many working adults spend large amounts of time sitting each day. Over 40% of male and female full time workers reported that their job involves mostly sitting. What we do know is that it is beneficial to try and break up your sitting, preferably every 20 minutes.
