Being chained to your desk may result in the stagnation of blood in your lower legs, putting you at risk of developing deep vein thrombosis (DVT) – also known as e-thrombosis in this context. A report in the European Respiratory Journal linked a case of too much time seated at a computer to deep vein thrombosis (DVT).
The best way to prevent DVT is to get up from behind your desk and move. Take short walks every half an hour and get the blood flowing again. Effectively exercising at your desk can also help which is where Airogym can be of benefit.
