OmniMount Supports Healthier Home Life
PHOENIX, AZ, Dec 11, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
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.
