“Above all, do not lose your desire to walk: Every day I walk myself into a state of well-being and walk away from every illness.” Kierkegaard, Letter to Jette (1847)
We at Quick-Seat agree. We know that sitting for long periods of time can be a detriment to one’s health, as is standing for too long. So, we have a quote that sums up our mission, “That sometimes people just need to sit awhile.” We know that some people have health challenges and they simply get tired. The need to rest can occur at any time; it can occur anywhere like on the way to the doctor’s office, at the hospital, on industrial sites, and even just doing regular things like shopping at the mall or going to a restaurant. Virtually anywhere where there are people, the need for a quick rest exists! Think about the long nature walks, outdoor trails, large parking lots attached to banquet halls, religious institutions and schools. (We invite you to learn more about Mall Walking with this Guide.)
“Sometimes a person just needs to sit a while”, and Quick-Seat is the perfect solution. It’s permanently installed, yet provides temporary-easy to open-self retracting seating that folds up against the wall with only a 3 ¾” footprint, while providing ample safe seating 20” x 14” when open.
Kierkegaard was a very heavy thinker, but we just bet that our Quick-Seat, that can support more than 500 pounds, could bear up under the weight.
Kierkegaard said, “Sitting calmly on a ship in fair weather is not a metaphor for having faith….” But we know that sitting on a Quick-Seat is as good as any port in a storm and more than just a metaphor to help your employees, patients, clients, or your retail guests feel as if they are in a safe harbor when they “just need to sit awhile.” A little known fact is Quick-Seat can be color customized to suit your color scheme as well as feature your company logo.
