Movably, a new company dedicated to improving the health and well being of people ready to leave their sedentary sitting behind. It is a company decades on the making. Decades of research and years of collaboration between engineers, designers, ergonomic specialists, physical therapists, and doctors.
Who knew “sit down and make yourself comfortable” would be as hazardous a proposition as “care for a pack of smokes?” Well, we did.
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.
Sedentary sitting is
the new smoking
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?
A 2011 study documented 800,000 people and their sitting habits. The study found that 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.
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!
Changing behavior is hard. Using is easy.
Going from sitting for hours on end to moving takes a little getting used to. Thinkist makes the transition effortless. It’s designed to seamlessly and intuitively bring motion to your daily routine without disrupting your train of thought.
Athletes can move and focus at the same time. We took this basic premise and transformed it into a revolutionary new chair—thinkist. It’s the first desk work solution that keeps your blood circulating and your thoughts flowing.
Thinkist automatically prompts natural movement in your hips and legs. It gently nudges you into different positions throughout the day.
Thinkist is entirely adjustable so you can personalize its settings to your particular dimensions for an ergonomic fit that keeps you perfectly aligned all day.
Set goals and track your progress with the thinkist app
Your wellbeing is important to us. That's why our app does more than seamlessly pairing with your Thinkist chair for an intuitive and simple experience.
The Thinkist app tracks your progress, allows you to set wellness goals and provides inspirations and guides for healthier, more effective, breaks.
It’s what we stand for.
Sit, lean, alternate legs, or just free stand. Over the course of a day, these variations will improve your wellbeing. Imagine what it can do over the course of a lifetime.
The Long Haul
Movement and Focus
Athletes can move and be in the zone at the same time. This simple concept is now available in a chair—thinkist. There’s nothing else like it in the world. It has personalized settings because there’s no one else like you in the world.
Keep Track of Progress
Thinkist keeps you moving with desk work position shifts; body positions you can program and keep track of with the thinkist app.
Your focus is sharpened because the motions thinkist prompts occur in the lower half of your body. Walking desks, treadmills, and other makeshift solutions impede your focus because they interrupt the top half of your body.

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.
