What is a standing desk?
Standing desks (sit stand desks) are height adjustable desks which can be manually or electrically adjusted to both sitting and standing heights to prevent health conditions arising from prolonged sitting. They are designed to encourage greater movement and promote better posture.
Standing Desks and Furniture
Sitting down all day is a recipe for trouble, however you look at it. Bad backs, weight issues, slow metabolisms, weakening joints... The list of issues goes on. It may be common to sit through your 9-to-5, but if you take into account sitting down during your commute, sitting down to relax and unwind at home and then going to bed for the night, it becomes clear that we are all guilty of a lack of movement in our general lives.
Recent medical research suggests that sitting too much could be causing as many deaths per yer as smoking. An easy solution to this is to simply stand up more at work. The only way to achieve this previously in the workplace was to stand up and walk around which affected productivity. That's why standing desks were developed - to enable the workforce to alternate from sitting to standing regularly while continuing to work.
The increased movement provided by standing desks helps to avoid multiple health problems by improving posture and increasing blood circulation. This reduces the strain placed on the discs, spinal column and surrounding muscles to minimise musculoskeletal injuries. Standing desks also boost metabolism by increasing the heart rate slightly when compared to purely sitting - aiding weight loss and general health.
