The Human Body is Built to Move.
New Era of Work Style
Humans are creatures that love to sit.
However, the human body is not built to continue sitting for a long time to work in front of the computer. There are more than 360 joints and about 700 skeletal muscles in the human body, and as they move, they enhance the performance of nerve cells. In short, the human body is built to move. KOKUYO’s ing was born out of this mechanism.
