Unique Exercising Office Chairs
Being a full-time coder means I don’t get a lot of exercise when working (unless you call 6 round trips to the coffee machine followed by 6 round trips to the loo exercise). Today I came across 2 computer chairs that could help burn the calories when I’m sat coding or blogging.
First off is the is the swopper, this revolutionary chair can move on all 3 dimensions and looks great fun to work on. It also advertises the following benefits:
- It is good for your back
- It keeps your inter-vertebral discs resilient and better able to handle strenuous activity
- It very gently exercises all of your muscles
- It promotes your circulation
- It keeps your joints fit and prevents wear and tear on the joints
- It actively prevents thromboses.
I must admit I’m not sure how productive I’d be on the swopper, as I like to lean back a lot and could see myself falling off.
The second chair I came across is literally an exercise bike that you use as an office chair. So if you can type and pedal at the same time you can do a proper aerobic workout whilst writing your latest thesis. I suppose this could be taken to the next level and have your pedal power actually power the PC though that might be a bit too much like hard work.
The swopper chair was found via Crib Candy and thanks to Star of Shiny Shiny and Chaos Theory for leading me to the Geek-a-cycle.
