There’s been a growing number of studies over recent years reporting the impact on our health that extended sitting is having. There’s lots of advice being given such as standing up and stretching at least every hour, taking a 30-minute walk at lunchtime and using a kneeling chair instead of a traditional office chair.
Within all this advice height adjustable office desks or Sit Stand Desks, have risen hugely in popularity in recent years, allowing flexibility and giving numerous health benefits to those that use them regularly.
Reduce Back Pain - For an office worker, back pain is one of the most common complaints. Sitting for long periods of time is generally considered for our health. Height adjustable standing desks allow for workers to switch effortlessly between sitting and standing, getting the best of both worlds.
Improve Mood & Energy Levels - Sedentary lifestyles are linked with higher risks of depression and anxiety while studies have shown that users of height adjustable tests reported less stress and fatigue throughout their working day. Also, it was reported that people who use standing desks have increased energy levels.
Boost Productivity - With all the benefits from height-adjustable desks, it’s inevitable that a boost in productivity will be seen. The ability to switch between standing and sitting at a moment's notice helps keep people comfortable and focused on their work.
Lower Risk of Weight Gain - The act of simply standing can have a surprising benefit on weight loss compared to those who sit all day. An afternoon of working at a standing desk can burn an additional 170 calories when compared to an afternoon of sitting.
Our height-adjustable desks come in a variety of styles, sizes, colours and adjustment options (such as hand crank or electric). Revolutionise the way you work with your very own standing office desk.
