Sit-Stand Desk WPS27
Sit-stand desks have become a popular topic of discussion in media worldwide, with research and studies suggesting that our sedentary working lives are leading to both short term and long-term health problems. Consequently, many people are now reassessing their workspace in an effort to create an environment that is more ergonomic and comfortable for each individual user. As every person is different and unique, their workspace should reflect this and be tailored to their individual needs.
Studies show that sitting at a desk for more than seven hours a day can greatly affect your health. Many people struggle being sat still at an office desk for this long length of time as it often leaves them feeling lethargic, achy and stiff. Pre-existing health conditions can be made worse and sitting uncomfortably with poor posture can result in additional long-term ailments with the neck and spine. Being sat stationary at a desk for long periods of time can make the user succumb to early tiredness which results in losing concentration and focus on their work. In the corporate environment, research shows that employees are taking absences more than ever due to work-related strain/injuries, illnesses and stress that could otherwise be avoided simply by improving their working environment.
One simple change will revolutionise your workspace more than any other change: swapping your standard desk for a Sit-Stand Desk.
Using a sit-stand desk can do absolute wonders for your health and wellbeing. Because it gives you the option of adjusting the desk to your unique height and raises to allow for standing while working, it allows your body to fall into a neutral posture which puts less stress on your joints and therefore uses less energy. The subsequent increase in your energy levels supports higher levels of concentration, vigilance and accuracy which therefore optimises your work performance as well as your health.
Standing at a desk allows your body to perform micro-movements, which as the name suggests, is when the body makes the smallest unnoticeable movements to balance or get comfortable. These micromovements burn extra calories, improve blood circulation and increase muscle tone. Being more active throughout the day in this way can also improve glucose and insulin levels as well as helping you get a better night’s sleep at the end of the day.
