PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwire - Dec 11, 2012) - OmniMount, a brand of mount and furniture solutions for TVs, computers and tablets, is introducing a line of ActionMounts to promote healthier movement during traditionally sedentary activities like home computer use and TV viewing. OmniMount, recognized as a 2012 Gold Fit-Friendly Worksite by the American Heart Association for implementing the same standing culture in the office, will introduce sit-stand mounting products for the home in the Digital Health Zone at CES 2013 in Las Vegas, Nevada, January 8-11, booth 26121.
Global studies show that people sit up to 15 hours throughout the day, with a significant portion occurring during at-home hours. The Ergotron Sitting-Time Calculator (sittingtime.juststand.org) is an online tool to help tally hours spent in the car, at work, at the dinner table and in front of the TV.
"We're trying to reduce the amount of time people spend sitting in an effort to improve their health," stated Geoff Miller, president of OmniMount branded products. "The simple act of standing has enormous benefits and that's what our products aim to do -- swap hours that would normally be spent sitting for standing."
Just two hours of sitting reduces good cholesterol by 20 percent, reduces blood flow and raises blood sugar, all of which contribute to obesity and the related chronic, life-shortening diseases. Increasing active movement in otherwise sedentary times of the day will increase blood flow, metabolic rates, energy and alertness, important factors in creating a healthy home life balance.
The ActionMount collection consists of desk-mountable computer and laptop mounts, freestanding desks and interactive TV mounts for panels up to 70 pounds, all with full sit-stand height adjustability. Ergotron Constant Force technology enables display movement with only a light touch for easy and regular repositioning.
