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 ability to adjust the foot bed to an angle that is best for you will keep your legs at a more optimal angle for better circulation and less foot swelling.
