The problems associated with standing for an extended period of time have been widely researched across the globe. The damage caused to our bodies from prolonged standing is staggering as it rivals other serious diseases such as cancer, stroke or heart failure.
To some degree or another, most of us have suffered or are still suffering from the following symptoms:
- chronic fatigue and/or chronic pain
- back, neck, leg and foot fatigue
- poor heart and circulatory disorders and varicose veins
- spine and joint problems
Studies vary as to the extent of the damage, but they all concur with a few simple conclusions:
1) Standing for an extended period of time is not a natural or healthy human activity.
2) The harmful effects of prolonged standing diminish with the use of good footwear and proper flooring.
