western world spend around three quarters ( 3/4 ) of
their time during the day sitting.

has short and long term hazardous effects on overall health.
It has been observed that women who spend more
than six ( 6 ) hours seated every day are in a forty
percent ( 40% ) higher risk to die earlier from any cause.
On the other hand, the ones who sit less than three ( 3 )
hours are healthier and live longer.

over the age of sixty years ( 60 ).
As people age and enter retirement tend to sit more,
