The spine isn’t a delicate structure; it’s built to last.
What it’s not meant to do is sit still all the time.

Sitting is the new smoking
On average, you’ll spend 4,000 days of your life sitting at a desk. Being sedentary for that long does a lot of harm to your body.
How long are we sitting?
Over 25% of American adults sit for more than 8 hours every day with an additional 3 hours of sitting to watch television on top of that. That's 11 hours on average!
What's the problem with sitting?
A national cohort study has shown that both the total volume of sedentary time and its accrual in prolonged, uninterrupted bouts are associated with all-cause mortality, suggesting that physical activity guidelines should target reducing and interrupting sedentary time to reduce risk for death.
What's at risk?
People who sit the most have a greater risk of disease and death than people who sit the least:
112% increased risk of diabetes.
147% increased risk of cardiovascular events like heart attack and stroke.
90% increased risk of death from cardiovascular events.

What is the connection between not moving and back pain?Your spinal discs are the largest structure in your body not supported directly by a blood supply. Discs remain healthy by receiving nutrients and oxygen through the process of diffusion, and that process is primarily activated by muscle movement. Without frequent enough movement, discs and bodies can’t remain healthy—so going to the gym can’t fix the harm caused by a day of sitting.
Does the chair come assembled?You can easily assemble Movably Pro in about 10 minutes with the tools provided. The column and seat assembly attach to the base, and the seat back attaches to the seat. The foot support simply slides into place.
Do I need a standing desk?Yes, Movably Pro chair is made to work with a standing desk only. However, it does not have to be an expensive electric desk; a manually adjustable desk works just fine because all the healthy movement is supported by the chair in all positions, including sitting. You never need to change your desk’s height to change postures with Movably Pro.
Does the chair require power?Yes, the chair comes with its own power supply adaptor, which can plug into any standard outlet.
Is the height adjustable?The chair's height is adjustable. However, Movably Pro is designed so you can comfortably use all positions without needing to change the chair or desk height.
How easy is it to change positions?Changing positions only takes one or two seconds, and once you have some practice you can complete the change without interrupting your work.
Can I use the chair with a standing desk converter?No. Standing desk converters usually don't have enough space below them for you to safely and comfortably change postures because your desk gets in the way. They are also often not as stable as regular standing desks.
What is your Warranty and is there a 90-Day Risk Free Trial?Movably Pro is guaranteed with a 3 year limited warranty and comes with a 90-day risk-free trial that starts the day your chair is delivered. If for any reason you are not satisfied, you can return your chair within 90 days.
