1. "Locked at 90°" The first point that Kelly makes is that the average white-collar working american literally spends the majority of his/her waking hours in a seated position. The implications of this are the gradual development of limitations in the mobility of one's ankles, knees, and especially hips. Kelly likens the practice to keeping ones elbow locked at 90° such as in a cast all day. In either such a situation, we will see disability arise when the individual wants to engage in activities that require additional range of motion such as playing sports or even tying ones shoes.
