Taking a Break
Of course, employees could in principle make the effort to stand up and take a break every so often to increase their daily physical activity. However, on busy days where time spent working is crucial, it may not be practical to take frequent breaks. Adjustable workstation desks provide a solution to this issue by allowing workers to move while continuing to work.
There are other added benefits to stand sit desks, including a boost in productivity and an improvement in mood. The movement from sitting to standing is believed to release mood-enhancing chemicals by improving overall body circulation. Additionally, studies have revealed that participants report increased energy levels when using adjustable desks compared to non-adjustable working desks. The enhanced mood and alertness allow for the continuation of work, thereby increasing worker productivity in the long run.
Additionally, sit stand desks have shown to reduce back pain – a common problem for people with desk jobs. Back pain is so common these days because human beings are not designed to sit for such extended periods of time. The pain is caused by the strain in the joints. In a study comparing the use of traditional desks and sit stand desks, lower back discomfort was significantly lower with participants who used sit to stand desks. These types of advantages offered by adjustable office desks make them a worthwhile asset for businesses looking to invest in the well-being of their employees.
Though workers may attempt to compensate for the long hours of sitting by exercising every day, this effort is not enough to overcome the detrimental effects of sitting for over 8 hours. As well as regular exercise, it is important to move throughout the day. Something as simple as the transition from sitting to standing plays a crucial role in our overall health. Stand sit desks are useful in encouraging employees to perform more low-impact movements – and these actually add up to help improve our metabolic expenditure.
Having an adjustable work desk can remind and motivate us to move our bodies. It provides an easy strategy of incorporating more standing movements in our everyday lives. Ideally, sit to stand desks can be used alongside a commitment to regular exercise. However, for those who do not have time to exercise at all, utilising a height adjustable office desk may make all the difference to their health. Sit stand computer desks reduce sedentary behaviour and offer the option to sit or stand while working, which empowers employees to decide how to balance based on their preference.
Ergonomic, height-adjustable standing desks are available in many sizes and, to fit your budget, prices. Sit stand computer desks can be easily be adjusted at different times of the day to suit your preferences or activity schedule. Our Wave desk is recommended for those looking for a lightweight and easily portable adjustable desk.
For those not wanting to purchase a whole new desk, we offer Deskalator, which is a stand that is placed on top of an existing desk. It converts a traditional desk into a sit stand desk by providing extra adjustable height.
In addition, our electric sit stand desks can bring you a little standing exercise with just the flip of a switch. The electrical operation is both fast and quiet, which avoids disturbing other co-workers who are working nearby. Our electronic height adjustable desks make regular posture refinement easy; these models include the Federal, Blake and Duo desks.
Alternatively, manually adjustable sit to stand desks are also available for those who would like a little upper body workout to accompany the standing position. These options provide an excellent alternative to regular desks, which have a fixed height that is not modifiable. Adjustable height desks represent a convenient solution for workers of various heights and reach, as they can position themselves to meet their own spatial needs. Therefore, adjustable desks are an excellent option, even when they are used as normal desks. Additionally, employees are free to choose when and how often they prefer to be sitting or standing.
In contrast to traditional desks and standing desks, sit stand desks offer the option for either. These furnishings can easily be complemented with any types of seat.
Finally, those looking for an extra activity to increase their energy expenditure may be interested in the spin seat. This addition offers a gentle cycle action with 8 levels of resistance. The seat has a whisper-quiet pedal system with wheels that can be easily rolled out when it is not being used. This design is yet another example of how we increase the dynamics of work environments by reducing sedentary behaviour where appropriate. Our adjustable desks and spin seat benefit the short and long-term health of people whose occupations normally result in inactive lifestyles.
Installing sit to stand desks is a positive direction towards combating the negative effects of excessive sitting that exists in today’s work culture. Many of our customers start out by giving the product a trial run (so to speak) only to return a short time later to buy the adjustable desks for the whole office.
