Seeing a gap in public understanding of sedentary behaviour and its impact on individuals,
businesses and organizations, Ergotron launched
JustStand.org in 2010.
The aim of the website was to provide tools and resources for people, media,
businesses, schools and researchers to help raise awareness of the dangers of
prolonged sitting; and secondly, draw attention to the simple remedy of standing
and moving more throughout one’s day.
In 2011, Ergotron recognized the need to engage key influencers involved in
research and thus launched the first
JustStand® Wellness Summit, formally
introducing the notion that affordable sit-stand solutions exist to change
the sedentary behavior that researchers were observing.
To get a finger on the pulse of public opinion, Ergotron published the first
in 2013. The Index revealed that only 7% of the population were
aware of sitting disease. We are watching this index grow as constant media
attention would indicate the topic is growing globally.
