Active vs. Inactive Sitting
Have you ever noticed that your feet swell during a long plane ride? It’s not a symptom of the high altitude, but rather a product of Inactive Sitting.
The way people sit on planes is a perfect example of Inactive Sitting. The body—particularly the legs—is confined to a very small space, and your only opportunity for real movement is a quick trip to the bathroom. As a result, blood pools in the lower extremities and creates swelling in the feet.
Office work has a similar effect, as hours of sedentary computer work can slow circulation. But with a Foot Machine, the user is encouraged to engage in Active Sitting. The gentle rocking motion keeps the legs and feet moving, increasing circulation and preventing swelling.
