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

Guy was a pleasure to deal with from the beginning and catered to my specifications. The quality of the table was amazing! I’ve seen some other desks from other manufacturers which were extremely flimsy, unstable and poorly constructed. The product was custom built and received very promptly as well. Thanks again Guy, I know where I’ll be heading the next time I’m in need of a desk!

Guy provided an e-desk for me. I used it with a natural bamboo tabletop 180cm in width and it works wonderfully. Guy was very responsive with a qeury i had about the product - i couldnt ask for more. Highly recommended.

Guy has been one of the most helpful people in helping me setting up my brand new desk frame. He guided me on where to find the best quality desktops to add onto the desk legs.

Guy was an absolute professional from start to finish. Very seamless process with ordering to pick up taking less than 24hrs.

Guy will take the time to understand your requirements, communicates clearly and will not try to upsell items you don’t require. Instructions to put together are clear and the videos on the website are helpful too.

We are extremely happy with our purchases. Desks are well designed and built. We love our new desks and would happily recommend Ergomotion.

Thanks Guy and all the best!

**Reposting from my personal account.**

I spoke to Guy shortly after moving to Australia to get some information about their standing desks. I'd been on the hunt for one for a while and was struggling to find something that seemed to be good quality while still being reasonably priced.

Guy answered all my questions confidently and clearly, checked their stock levels since I was looking at a hardwood desktop not specified on their site and got back to me promptly with all the information.

When I was ready to go ahead with the order, it was a quick phone call and my order was on it's way. When the delivery seemed as though it might take longer than expected, Guy dropped the desk with me himself.

I put the desk together which was a very simple process - although a powered screw driver would have made the job much easier for me, I left all my tools in South Africa when I moved over and haven't built up a collection again just yet. The desk has been great and will get I'm sure, many years of happy use!

I highly recommend Ergomotion as a brand! Guy's service is a strong addition to an already great product.

Guy was just a pleasure to deal with. Excellent knowledge and advice which followed through to excellent after sales. The e-desk is very sturdy, easy to use and looks great. Great job Guy and thank you

I love my Ergomotion stand up desk! It is easy to set up and is made of quality materials. However, the best part of the purchase was the excellent customer service I received. Guy (the owner) came out in the pouring rain to measure the boot of my car to make sure I could pick the desk up (fully assembled) and it would fit. I ordered the desk on a Monday and it was ready by Tuesday morning. He helped loading the desk in my car, removed a leg so that it could fit and explained how to put the leg back in, which was very straightforward and did not need any tools. If you are considering buying a stand up desk, I would definitely recommend Ergomotion.

Guy was lovely to deal with. He was prompt and courteous in all his communication. He was happy for us to look at the desk before purchase. Once ordered, the desk arrived so quickly. Guy set it all up and we are extremely happy with the product. Thanks Guy for your great service and care.
