Types of corporate environments

Any corporate environment can benefit from more productive staff and a healthier workplace, but in our experience, we’ve noticed time and time again the following industries to be perfect candidates for standing desks in the office.

Offices

From small businesses to larger corporations, all kinds of offices contain workers sitting at their desks for up to 10 hours a day.

And with a quarter of us skipping our lunch breaks, there leaves little time throughout the workday for any kind of standing.

With an electric standing desk, employees can simply make the switch between sitting and standing throughout their day. Quiet operation means no distractions for others and while quick operation means no disruptions to your workflow.

Government

Reduce sitting times and improve office ergonomics, productivity, and health in Government settings and organisations through an active workplace.

Ergomotion has had great success improving Government workplaces with ergonomic solutions designed to improve the health and performance of employees.

Our standing desks are also ideal for “hot desking” environments, as the quick and quiet operation means the height can easily be adjusted to suit individuals’ preferences.

Radiology

Any kind of medical occupation where employees are spending long periods of time poring over documents, scans, files, and more, means most of the day is spent sitting.

All that sitting opens up the opportunity for upper and lower back pain and well as neck, shoulder, and wrist aches.

Enjoy a better reading experience with an ergonomic standing Imaging Desk, designed to give you the optimum control over sitting and standing during your workday.

Rehabilitation

Our custom electric standing desks are ideal in a rehabilitation setting for children.

Young people depend on rehabilitation services to help them regain control of their function following recovery from illness, injury, or medical procedures.

Height adjustable desks can conform to a user’s specific requirements, and allows them to easily alternate, at the push of a button, between sitting and standing, giving them total control. Ergomotion’s Motiondesk® 2 & 3 -DL 14 is ideal for children as it has an extra-low starting height.

Benefits of standing desks for corporate

A more active workspace equals a workplace designed for humans.

The human body was not made to sit all day, and a standing desks gives employees an opportunity to organically move – just as the body was designed to! – throughout the day.

Studies show that frequent switches between sitting and standing throughout the day helps to promote a healthier, happier, and more productive work environment.

Blood flow

Boost blood flow while standing during the day. DId you know that sitting for long periods of time can increase your risk of cardiovascular problems, diabetes, and even cancer?

Stand up for your health and get that blood pumping!

Concentration

An improved blood flow means more blood is being pumped around your body, including to your brain, therefore increasing brain function.

Improve concentration and boost focus with a standing desk

Energy and alertness

We’re all familiar with that 3 o’clock slump. Lunch is long gone and we’re counting down the minutes until the end of the day.

Say goodbye to that slump and enjoy boosted energy while standing. Standing desk users feel more alert and find their productivity soars throughout the day.

Calories

Did you know that you burn more calories standing than you do sitting?

A 60kg female can burn 262 more calories per hour standing instead of sitting, while a male who weighs 80kg can burn more than 340 extra calories per hour while standing.

Back pain

Did you know that up to 90% of Australians will experience some sort of back pain in their lifetime?

A somewhat surprising statistic that instantly becomes plausible when we consider all the time we spend sitting at a desk, day-in, day-out.

How to start standing in the workplace

We understand that making the move from sitting to standing can seem a bit daunting, especially since most people are so used to sitting for such long periods during the day.

As such, transitioning from a seated position to a sit-stand environment shouldn’t be done immediately, and takes a little time to ease into.

We recommend starting small, and building slowly.

You could follow a schedule like this:

  • For the first few days, stand for 20 minutes, twice a day: once a few hours into the day, and again an hour or two before the workday ends. This could be, for example, at 11am and then after lunch, at 3pm.
  • By the end of week one, you should try standing for 20 minutes, three to four times a day
  • By the end of the second or third week, you should be alternating between sitting and standing throughout the day, but the majority of time still spend sitting
  • A month or two in, your time between sitting and standing should be divided relatively evenly

Alternatively, you could try standing for certain tasks – like checking emails, during online or phone meetings, or when taking and making phone calls.

Remember, standing for long periods of time is just as detrimental as sitting, so the key is alternation: switching between sitting and standing throughout the entire workday is the best way to maximise all the great benefits of an electric sit-to-stand desk!

I would highly recommend this electric desk to all ages, the the best decision I’ve made for my sons study table. The service was excellent, prompt in responses and on time schedule with the delivery time. The removalists were very careful bringing into our study room on the second level.
Very happy with the purchase!!

Amazing e-desk - sturdy, spacious and great quality wood. It fits well into the home office. Assembling it was mostly straightforward with the video! Thanks Guy

I'm only just reading all the Google Reviews now, just before writing this, after having purchased and built a desk; and this is basically going to be saying the same thing as all the others, the owner, Guy, is absolutely great and so are the desks. There's a reason why all the reviews are genuine 5 stars. I had been doing research on numerous sit/stand desks and the manufactures of the frames/motors that go into them. I wanted a good quality and reliable setup so I decided to something that utilised Linak (manufacturer) hardware and so I set out trying to find a sit/stand desk that used them. As I was after something specific, I contacted a number businesses before placing an order so that I understood exactly what it was I was purchasing. Unfortunately most of those other businesses seemed more interested in B2B, and a couple didn't even bother responding. I had even gone so far as to contact a business in Canada, who eagerly could supply everything, but unfortunately not for running on 240v. I almost gave up and was just about to head to Ikea. Then I came across Ergomotion. I shot through an email with some questions about their Edesk, and I got a clear informative response within hours. The owner, Guy, kindly followed up, answered further questions, and was also able to order extra parts from Linak on request. To ensure I had all the information I needed before placing an order, he even went so far as to warn me of a slight upcoming price increase. Guy knows his products, knows it in great detail and has a wealth of helpful knowledge.

Great customer service and desk is exactly as described. Setting it all up was straight forward too. The electric movement up and down is really smooth and quiet - couldn't be happier!

After a very unpleasant and disappointing customer service experience with another desk from one of the more "well-known" commercial standing desk companies, I came across Ergomotion and Guy after extensive research to find a replacement and I am glad turned out this way. Dealing with Guy was an absolute pleasure, he was able to answer all my questions and provide me with a range of customisation options including a solid rubberwood desk top which I decided on after seeing the desk in person. In the end, I ended up with a higher quality desk and look forward to continue using it for years to come. Thanks Guy!

We’ve had an Ergomotion High /Low Desk since 2015, well before standing at a work station was a “Thing” in Australia. It’s been fabulous! It’s reliable, speedy and quiet in its height adjustments. Guy, the business owner, is approachable for after sales service queries. To achieve more posture positions & comfort, we use a 10cm foot stool while standing! Many thanks Guy for the great service… Cheers Avril & Tony (Heidelberg West, formerly Moorabbin)

Before purchasing from Ergomotion, I wondered how a business can actually have a 5.0 star perfect rating on Google. After purchasing an electric standing desk and dealing with Guy, I know how. 1) HIGH QUALITY: The desks from here all use high quality LINAK motors and frames. The desk top that I received was commercial grade laminate from Laminex. 2) GENUINE SERVICE: When I initially wanted a more expensive variant, Guy explained to me the differences and suggested the more affordable variant. 3) CUSTOMISATION: Guy helped me customise the size of the size of my desktop - something no other business offered. 4) CONVENIENCE: For a nominal fee, Guy delivered the desk, FULLY ASSEMBLED. All I did was plug it in. Can't get this level of convenience with any other of the many businesses that offer standing desks. If I buy another standing desk, it will be from Ergomotion.

Quality at a reasonable price which is made even better by Guy. You’re made to feel special and nothing is too hard which in this day and age, is honestly hard to come by. Do yourself a favour and support a local family business.
