Sit Stand Desks a Review

Jodi Young - Wednesday, November 19, 2014

Why Sit Stand Desks are the Real Deal

Over the last year you have probably been hearing more and more about sit stand or electric height adjustable desks and how they are changing the work world for better or worse. Many people don’t know why they are such a revolution and if they actually work. In this blog post we review what everyone has been telling us about sit stands from testing one in our showroom.

Research says that alternating between sitting and standing benefits both your work and your productivity. Why is this? This is because sitting all day is in fact bad for you, if you have had a job where you sit for long periods of time then you know what I am talking about. Its uncomfortable, it hurts your back, your butt, your legs, and places you never thought it would hurt like your wrists, your neck, and your shoulders. Our bodies are not meant to sit all day and after many days of sitting for long periods of time you will notice muscle aches and pains that become a daily occurrence. Alternating between sitting and standing throughout your day allows your muscles to flex and the blood to flow better throughout your body rather than pooling while sitting. Standing greatly decreases the strain on your muscles so there is less fidgeting or moving around to get comfortable and an increase of energy.

 

It does take a little while to get used to a sit-stand desk, after sitting and typing for so long you have to adjust and get used to completing tasks while standing up. We found that since a person was already standing they were more prone to going and getting things and walking around the office to communicate with co-workers. After a few weeks people noticed increased energy, better focus, and actual weight loss in some cases! It’s not just a fad, standing at work can change many aspects of your life for the better! We think it’s a great investment for offices because people of many different heights can use these desks, just push a button to your needed size and voila! It’s time people start investing in their quality of life at work, make employees happy and healthier by giving them the opportunity to stand at work!
