One of the situations where sitting for extended periods of time is absolutely unavoidable is during airline travel. This can be very hard on the body – especially if (like most of us) you do not have the means to fly business or first class. This exact issue was one of the major motivating factors in the creation of the WellShell. We wanted a small, easily portable device that could be used anywhere, anytime – including close cramped quarters – for full body exercise.
During our recent WellShell airline photo shoot we had the opportunity to allow some pilots to try the WellShell and get their impressions. It was interesting to learn that they already do isometric based exercises regularly in the cockpit to address the ill effects of sitting for extended periods of time. They completely understood the importance of core strength to maintain overall health, and they thought that the WellShell was an innovative way to accomplish this. They could see the very practical application of our device for airline travel, both for themselves and for the passengers!
