Sit but still feel like you're walking.

With an ambition to reduce the health risks related to sitting down for too long, Jaguar Land Rover is developing a shape-shifting chair to 'make your brain think you're walking'.

Saturday, 18 Jan 2020 8:00 AM MYT Jaguar Land Rover reveals that the company is working on a shape-shifting seat that will make users feel as if they were walking. — AFP Relaxnews With an ambition to reduce the health risks related to sitting down for too long (which can happen when one is partaking in a lengthy road trip), Jaguar Land Rover is developing a shape-shifting chair to"make your brain think you're walking". Jaguar Land Rover announced on Jan 16 its development work on a"shape-shifting" chair designed to make whoever is sitting in it feel as though they're walking. By tricking the brain into thinking the body is moving while it's actually seated in a car, the health risks associated with sitting down for too long could potentially be greatly reduced. To accomplish this, the company integrated a collection of actuators in a foam seat that create"constant micro-adjustments" which lead to the brain believing that you're taking rhythmic steps one leg at a time. Such an invention can keep those who often take long journeys on the road from suffering the side effects of remaining seated for extended periods of time like shortened muscles and back pain. This in-development morphing seat aligns with Jaguar Land Rovers Destination Zero vision, an ambition to make societies cleaner and the people within them safer and healthier. – AFP Relaxnews Article type: free Read more: The Star
