Sitting all day takes a serious toll on your health. Recent research indicates long-term, extended sitting can lead to obesity, diabetes, heart disease and decreased lifespan. While many of us have turned to standing desks, not everyone has the luxury of bringing one into their work space. As an alternative, ooloo has developed a rocking footrest that keeps you moving even while seated! The constant motion beneath your feet can help mitigate the negative effects of extended sitting. The ooloo footrest is a finalist in the 2013 Red Dot design competition and the company recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to help fund their first production run. Support them here!
