Alternative to walking steps is StandingSteps

We sit to take weight off our feet. Now we’re hearing too much sitting can take years off our life. We’re parking our legs in ‘handicapped’ spaces and hoping we won’t be ticketed and towed from there.

Parking our legs ignores we have them not only to move our feet. Using our legs to move our heavy bodies gets us the most accessible benefit of exercise – increased circulation of oxygen and other vital factors. We need our legs to move more oxygen!

The alternative to sitting is not to stand, it’s to
GetBetterStanding on an innovative bionic platform against which body weight can be comfortably leveraged. This platform spares our feet and ankles the punishments of standing and spares our bodies the penalties of sitting by enabling weight-bearing exercise.

Walking was until recent times an extremely popular past time and one that even those leading physically-demanding lives still made time for. Why? Because walking places a particularly good form of stress on our bodies and we respond to good stress in ways that afterward increases our resistance to more severe stress. Walking holds up extremely well when compared with other ways we can combat daily stress. http://www.adaa.org/living-with-anxiety/managing-anxiety/exercise-stress-and-anxiety

The forces of gravity that oppose motion of our heavy bodies while we are walking are also harnessed by exercising on the innovative bionic platform from Better Standing Company, Inc. These ‘inertia’ forces serve as signals within our circulatory pathways and lead to provisioning in muscle and nerve fibers of more oxygen and other vital factors. How does it work? Up and down motion while walking causes heavy blood and lymph fluids to stretch and strain flexible internal passages. Our bodies have always relied on these ‘cues’ to recognize bodily exertion and respond in autonomic fashion to widen circulatory paths for more oxygen delivery. Once widening begins, output from the heart rises as needed to keep blood pressure constant.

Doctors have always told us that walking strengthens the ‘heart’. More recently, research into how repetitive motion, as in walking, of our body center-of-gravity builds strength ‘head to toe’ by increasing circulation of oxygen and other vital factors. Like the up and down motion we do while walking, GetBetterStanding exercise prepares us for combating more severe stress. How does it work? As circulation rises, more oxygen gets transferred onto proteins in muscle, nerve, and other cell types. These oxygen carriers, eg. myoglobin in muscle fiber and neuroglobin in nerve fiber, hold onto oxygen within cells, and ‘provision’ it for subsequent energy production. Pre-loading oxygen or ‘pre-conditioning’ on a regular basis supports vital metabolic processes that manage our daily physical and emotional stress. Sleep is better supported when oxygen is provisioned into cells before bedtime. And daily physical activity certainly helps us to combat daily stress and take on challenges with vigor and excitement!

-GetBetterStanding exercise is the most efficient and comfortable means of moving our body weight in a head to toe direction to increase circulation of oxygen without distracting ourselves from work or leisure we can have while standing. StandingSteps™ movements are similar to walking motion, but can be faster and do not have us leaving the spot where we wish to take a stand against stress! Fifty or more miles of step-equivalents are possible for a person with eight or more hours comfortably spent on the StandingSteps bionic platform.
