Benefits of using an electric standing desk
Alternating between sitting and standing as often as you can encourages you to move more during the day, promoting blood flow around the body and strengthening countless small muscle groups involved with posture and coordination. In an age of increasing body weight, using a sit-stand desk can also help efforts to lose weight, burning far more calories per hour than sitting.
There is significant reduction in the severity of muscular discomfort and spinal shrinking from standing up regularly when compared with sitting. Sit-stand desks avoid 'static loading' (muscles working continuously to hold the body in position) which alleviates stress on the muscles to prevent injuries occurring.
Sitting flattens the natural lumbar curve of the spine, causing uneven pressure on the inter-vertebral discs. A sit-stand desk encourages the spine to lengthen into its natural position, reducing this pressure on the discs.
Sit-stand desks have been shown to increase focus and attentiveness, with people working at sit-stand desks reporting an ability to focus for longer and better divide work and break mentalities. The benefits are felt by both the individual themselves through better health and posture but also by the organisation through increased productivity.
Sit-stand workstations also work perfectly for hot-desking offices, as they can be adjusted to the heights of any person using them. Allowing each user to set the desk to the correct height for them ensures that they can also set their chair up correctly for optimal posture support.
One drawback of on-desk sit-stand workstations such as VARIDESK is that they significantly reduce desk space and require a form of muscular excursion. With an electric sit-stand desk, the full desk space can be utilised and adjustment couldn't be easier with a simple button switch operating the raising and lowering of the desk.
