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 is doing 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?
Blood flow slows down. This can allow fatty acids to build up in the blood vessels, leading to heart disease.
A 2018 study found that 82% of people who suffer from blood clots, sat for a significantly greater amount of time than the remaining 18%.
What's at risk?
People who sit the most, compared to people who sit the least, have a greater risk of disease and death:
112% increased risk of diabetes.
147% increased risk of cardiovascular events like heart attack and stroke.
90% increased risk of death from cardiovascular events.
Changing behavior is hard.
Using Movably Pro is easy.
Health, movement, AND focus
Athletes can move and focus at the same time. We took this basic premise and transformed it into a revolutionary new chair — Movably Pro. It’s the first desk work solution that keeps your blood circulating and your thoughts flowing.
With Movably Pro you can alternate easily through a range of postures while you stay completely focused and in your deskwork flow.
The best posture is the next posture!
Movably Pro automatically prompts natural movement in your hips and legs. It gently nudges you into different positions throughout the day.
Ease and comfort
Movably Pro is entirely adjustable so you can personalize its settings, with an antifatigue mat built in that keeps you at your best all day.
Set goals and track your progress with the Movably app
Your wellbeing is important to us. That's why our app does more than seamlessly pairing with your Movably Pro chair for an intuitive and simple experience.
The Movably app tracks your progress, allows you to set wellness goals and provides inspirations and guides for healthier, more effective, breaks.
My back no longer bothers me after being on the computer all day.
I've used Movably Pro for about a week now and I already see a big difference. Not only do I feel better physically but I'm able to focus more."
I can't imagine using my standing desk without the Movably Pro now that I have tried it.
