Active Motion Sitting with activeLife Trainer™
activeLife Trainer™ (US Patent 8,485,945, additional patents pending) was developed by Dr. Chris Leonhard, a professor and board certified psychologist who specializes in Behavioral Medicine – a multidisciplinary field that concerns itself with what you can physically do to improve and maintain your health.
Since 2009, Dr. Leonhard has been working with researchers, occupational health and safety experts, and manufacturers of exercise machines, office furniture, and electronic sensors from the US, Europe, and Asia to develop Active Motion Sitting technology. This effort first resulted in LifeBalance Station™, the elliptical machine office desk, and now in activeLife Trainer™, the iPhone and Android compatible elliptical under-table machine that connects to your favorite chair and fits under any table (or no table at all).
Both devices allow desk workers, gamers, TV watchers, etc. to gently move their legs - doubling their metabolism - without interfering with desk work. Independent studies from Europe and the US have proven this concept. Additional large scale field trials are currently underway.
A limited number of beta-version activeLife Trainers™ are currently available at $495 including delivery.
