Is a standing desk good for you? Stand up for health!

Imagine the total number of hours you’ve spent sitting in a year working in the same spot.

Do you regularly make conscious efforts to stretch, walk, and stand?

Many of us don’t.

Those who work desk jobs now find it totally normal to spend 8+ hours every day, seated in front of your computer.

You take breaks only if you have to visit the printer, go to the restroom, or grab a coffee. It’s also likely that you eat lunch at your desk.

Desk jobs and sitting in chairs inherently go hand in hand. Research shows that the habit of prolonged sitting in the workplace (and in the car to and from work, and on the couch at the end of the day…) has been called the new smoking.

Even if you value exercise and try to get to the gym or go for a run a couple of times a week, you’re not actually negating the effects of prolonged sitting.

Thanks to the growth of ergonomics, users are encouraged to move, maintain improved posture and reduce the effects of lower back pain and aching feet.

The answer?

Consistently switching between sitting and standing throughout the workday, with an electric standing desk.

The “sit and stand” approach can also lead to increased work productivity as well as OH&S safety.

Standing desks are increasingly popular in workplaces and offices not only in Australia, but all around the world, too.

Research shows that electric height adjustable desks improve the circulation and cardiovascular health, and ease the stress on your spine and muscles.

So if you’re sick of sitting, take advantage of the benefits of standing desks!

Looking for an energy booster while working? The answer is a standing desk!

Whether you admit it or not, coffee has served to be one of the most common energy boosters at work.

It has become a comfort drink when stressed or even if you’re just searching for a way to get out of the office for a few minutes!

Long stints of sitting can leave you feeling sleepy and distracted, and is a contributor to that dreaded “3 o’clock slump” in the office.

Poor posture teamed with prolonged sitting results in workers who are restless, even when they have several hours left in their workday.

This is where standing desks come in.

At the push of a button, your electric desk allows you to easily switch between sitting and standing within seconds, helping you keep your body moving and your muscles engaged throughout the day.

Custom-built to suit your office and height requirements, the standing desk revolution is changing the way workplaces stay energised, focused, and healthy!

Are you prone to neck and back pain?

Working at a desk daily for hours on end is one of the most common reasons for neck and back pain.

Instead of our workspaces adjusting to our needs for a comfortable sitting position, we do the contrary.

An electric standing desk encourages you to seamlessly shift between sitting and standing throughout the day, providing much needed relief on your neck, back, legs, and joints.

Do you work in front of a computer screen all day?

It’s safe to assume that most desk workers are seated in front of computer monitor or laptop screen for the duration of their day.

No wonder your neck, shoulders, and back ache, as day after day you employ poor posture to conduct your work.

Working in conjunction with standing desks, our monitor arms give users the freedom to adjust their computer screens to their exact specifications.

Instead of modifying your posture to fit your screen, modify your screen to fit your ideal posture.

Here are some easy tips you can implement to improve the way you use your computer:

  • The top of your computer screen should be level with your eyes
  • If it’s too low, you’ll inadvertently crane your neck downwards to properly view your screen
  • This can lead to neck and back pain
  • Adjust the tilt of your screen to minimise glare
  • Position your screen at arm’s length
