Sitting is the orthopaedic ‘perfect storm’, and can lead to neck problems, carpal tunnel, knee problems, should dysfunction, back pain, hernias, pelvic floor dysfunction & more (source: https://www.standupkids.org)

The introduction of an employee wellness program in the workplace can decrease employee absenteeism by as much as 42%
