There is increasing awareness that sitting for extended periods causes some serious health issues, eventually turning you into a kind of workplace Quasimodo. We all know to sit up straight and to place our feet firmly below the desk, take frequent breaks, etc.

Worse still, experts are saying that regular exercise, no matter how vigorous, does not combat the effects of 9-5 inactivity; you need to keep moving throughout the day.
