The Movement Announces Voom, a Workplace Wellness Program that Combats the Negative Effects of Sitting and Inactivity
Kingston, NY, Nov 04, 2013 (PRWeb.com via COMTEX) --
The Movement, developers of workplace wellness and activity programs, today announces the launch of Voom, a desktop and mobile wellness platform that engages employees throughout their workday in a series of scheduled and interactive stretching and strengthening exercises. Voom takes users through two minute "micro-moves" videos, designed by physicians to guard against "sitting disease," or the many injuries, ailments, and chronic diseases that result from prolonged periods of sitting, physical inactivity, and/or repetitive tasks. Voom also relieves stress, reduces fatigue, sharpens focus, and improves job performance when used on a daily basis.
Unlike most wellness programs, Voom is woven into the fabric of an employee's work day; each two-minute session--or "micro-break"--can be conducted at the user's desk, with nominal interruption in workflow. To further increase engagement, Voom is offered within a "gamified" framework, giving users the opportunity to earn points, badges, and rewards for fulfilling program requirements. Voom also issues 'V-mails,' or period report card emails, and allows both individuals and business administrators to track progress.
"Sitting all day for weeks at a time takes a tremendous toll on one's body," said Dr. Gregory Soltanoff, CEO and co-founder of the Movement. "Unfortunately, most people have few opportunities during the workday to take the time to stretch or undertake the kind of activities that mitigate the ill-effects of stationery work. Voom lowers all the major barriers to healthy 'workstyles'; it's convenient, as the program is delivered directly to the employee's device, and it fits seamlessly into the workday, requiring just two minutes at a time. The game framework will play a big part in keeping users engaged and motivated, providing organizations with a more sustainable way of maintaining employee health and productivity."
About The Movement
The Movement, founded by two renowned third generation chiropractors, was developed to create wellness programs that would protect sedentary workers from the injuries and diseases brought on by prolonged sitting. Voom, the company's new flagship wellness platform, is a complete, cost-effective wellness program that not only gets employees moving throughout the day, but also engages, motivates, and educates users on the importance of physical activity.
Voom can be licensed for corporate users or purchased for personal use.
