DM05D18 Sit-Stand Desk
THE PROBLEM: BEING INACTIVE AT WORK
The last couple of years sit-stand desks have been a hot topic of discussion in media around the world. Studies have revealed a startling fact: middle-aged adults spend more time sedentary (inactive/sat down) than over 75s!
Modern conveniences contribute to the rise of inactivity; using transport and using escalators/elevators instead of stairs means we walk much less than we should. Not to mention the facility to shop online; with a few clicks shopping is delivered to your door, so you no longer have to walk around shops and carry heavy shopping home. However, the most significant contributor to the problem is work. Jobs are becoming increasingly more office-based and people who are sat behind a computer screen are not moving much for most of the working day. The growing rate of inactivity in the UK has become a serious concern and is now being highlighted by health experts as something that needs to be vastly improved.
Sitting at work more than seven hours a day can greatly affect your health. Many people struggle being sat at an office desk for a long time, often ending up feeling lethargic, achy and stiff. Sitting uncomfortably with poor posture can also result in long-term problems with the neck and spine. It can also be a problem for an employer, as workers can become less productive throughout the day when early tiredness kicks in, they lose concentration and cannot focus on their tasks fully.
THE SOLUTION: SIT-STAND DESKS
At Duronic we offer a fantastic solution to get you more active at work and feeling all the benefits it brings: the Sit-Stand Desk. Using a sit-stand desk can do wonders for your health; it can increase your energy levels, burn calories, promote better quality of sleep, improve blood circulation and even muscle tone. It can also improve glucose and insulin levels.
In the workplace, a standing desk can benefit you in a lot of ways. Studies show that workers will experience higher levels of concentration, vigilance and accuracy. Compared to their fellow seated employees they are better at decision making, and have better judgement and problem-solving skills.
The Duronic Sit-Stand Desk DM05D18
This versatile computer desk will hold a monitor, keyboard and also any smaller gadgets or accessories on the desk surface. It has a groove to hold a tablet in front of the monitor screen, enabling you to access both simultaneously while working.
A computer screen can either be sat on top of the desk or can be fixed to the back edge by using a Duronic desk mount; to search for our desk mounts look for ranges DM25/DM35.DM45/DM55/DM65.
The whole desk can be easily adjusted by hand to be higher or lower, by using the lever under the edge of the surface. Squeeze the lever and lift the desk higher, releasing the lever when you have reached the optimal height. To lower the desk, simply do the same but lower the desk. Lift it higher to use the desk mount while standing, or lower it to use the desk while seated.This sit-stand workstation is shaped to allow easy access to a keyboard placed on the table underneath.
Work Sitting or Standing
This sit-stand workstation is designed to allow easy access to a keyboard and mouse when placed on the table underneath.
A freestanding screen can be placed on top of the desk using its existing stand, or alternatively it can be held in place by a Duronic monitor screen mount.
The DM05D18 has a special groove specifically made for propping up a tablet or mobile phone, enabling the user to work from both computer screen and tablet/mobile screens simultaneously.
Along with this the hydraulic arms work to ensure that any adjustment made to the height of the desk is done with a smooth gliding action.
Easy to Adjust
The whole desk can be easily adjusted by hand using the two levers on each side.
Simply grasp the side edges and squeeze the levers; while holding the levers down move the desk to your desired height and then release the levers when you have found the right height.
Find the Right Height for You
The adjustability of this desk means you can not only adjust the height to suit standing/sitting, but can also interchange between the two throughout the day as and when you desire.
Simply lift it higher to use the desk mount while standing, or lower it to use the desk while seated.
The DM05D18 sit-stand desk can be adjusted from 15cm high to 42cm, allowing you to find the height that's right for you.
