"Even regular exercise isn't sufficient if you're confined to a desk or a couch for the rest of the day. "

I realized that enterprise mobile applications accomplish a larger purpose that just connect people to their software tools while they are away from their office. Enterprise mobile applications encourage people to move away from their desk as much as possible. This is critical because we spend a majority of our day at work and the nature of our work tools determine how health or unhealthy we are.
Even if mobile applications encourage people to move around for a few minutes a day, their risk of heart disease drops significantly. I suspect that organizations that mobilize their workforce may see a healthier workforce with a lower risk of heart disease. This might be a good area for research.
