For years the negative health impacts of sedentary jobs were seen as an unavoidable part of the modern workplace. Today, we know that ergonomic workplace design offers solutions. A standing desk, also called a sit stand desk, allows staff to work comfortably at their computer or workstation in a natural standing position.
Research points to a number of clinical and productivity benefits, including:
- Reductions in spinal pain and injury
- Improvements in mood and energy levels
- Optimised metabolic health, including reduced blood sugar spikes
- Better heart health
Our standing desks are adjustable so that your staff can experiment and find what works for them. Many clients report that staff alternate between sitting and standing, adding movement and variety to their ergonomic workstation.
