The benefits of sit-stand

Surely sitting down all day must be one of the safest things you can do at work? Surprisingly this is not the case! Many recent studies have found that sitting down all day is actually detrimental to your health.

In fact there are many benefits to changing posture throughout the day including:

  • Increasing concentration by improving circulation and blood to the brain
  • Improved  health and overall posture
  • Reducing the risk of Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI)
  • Burning  50 calories per hour more than sitting!

The latest sit-stand desks easily solve the problem of reduced physical activity for office staff. These desks can move from sitting to standing position with an easy to use button control – some even have a memory function to remember your favourite positions.

The ergonomic design of the desks allow workers to work in a more agile way, to suit the individuals’ requirements.

The move to sit stand doesn’t need to cost the earth and can be done on a very affordable basis, for all sizes of business.

 The concept is not just for individual desks but can also be used for larger meeting tables. Get the team standing around the table to show them the latest project plans. This change in perspective can stimulate very productive discussions.

It can be very quick to make the move to sit-stands. The desks work best with accessories such as CPU holders and cable risers.
