At MOVI we imagine a world where going to work
makes you feel better. With foundations in health
science and research, we’re here to change the
way people work at their desks.
A 2016 research study indicated standing desks could increase productivity by up to 53%.
Working below capacity costs businesses 6.5 working days per employee annually.
Healthy employees only take 2 days of sick leave annually, unhealthy employees take 18.
Reduced Disease Risk
Spending 11+ hours per day sitting increases your risk of disease by as much as 147%.
“We are designed to be active. Humans developed to walk and move on two limbs, standing upright; many don’t realise just how unnatural sitting is.”
Dr. David Oehme MBBS(Hons) PhD FRACS
