What options are available for sit-stand workstations? How do you choose what is the right desk for you?
Research shows that sitting all day is not good for our health, which is why old clunky desks are moving out, and sit-stand desks are moving in. Sitting at a desk for extended periods while doing your office work can cause repetitive strain injuries, limits circulation, and can contribute to weight gain because it slows down the body’s metabolism. Offering employees the opportunity to frequently change their position, moving from a sitting position to standing position, while continuing the ability to do their tasks, improves their health and their productivity. Sit-stand desks incorporated into an office design not only contributes to a healthier work environment, but also helps organizations save money.
Whether in a private or general office, touch-down space, or collaborative area, height adjustable desks supports a healthy and productive work-style. Combine these desks with an ergonomic office chair for an overall healthy workspace for your employees.
