Gentle reminders to regularly stand up while desk-bound to help prevent serious illnesses like diabetes or heart disease.
Sitting for long periods of time — when you don't stand up, don't move at all — can contribute to serious illnesses such as diabetes or heart disease. In addition, you stop breaking up fat in your bloodstream and you start getting accumulations of fat in your liver, your heart and your brain.
Standing for just 120 seconds every 20 minutes while desk-bound - even if you can't move around your office, already makes a real difference. Studies have shown that frequent standing breaks significantly decrease your chances of getting diabetes.
StandApp is Chrome Extension that sends you gentle reminders to stand up while desk-bound and helps you to stay healthy and happy throughout the day.
