Medical professionals through the healthcare industry recognise the benefits of Electric height adjustable standing desks.
While they look after you, their standing desks are looking after them.
In particular, those who work intensive jobs that require hours of concentration analysing screens benefit greatly by being able to seamlessly switch between sitting and standing throughout their intense days.
Standing desks in the healthcare industry
The role of a radiologist is to deeply examine and assess Magnetic Resonance imaging (MRI) scans, provided to them by MRI technologists. Hours pouring over a computer screen assessing scans can lead to back, neck, and shoulder strains.
Without disruption, radiologists can switch between sitting and standing with just the push of a button with an Electric standing Imaging Desk.
Diagnostic medical sonographers perform ultrasound examination for all types of patients, including pregnant women.
Beyond that however, a portion of their role is dedicated to preliminary examination – that is, analysing the images for their quality and coverage – and providing initial findings for a physician.
Multiple memory height positions and an improved reading experience make standing desks the choice for physicians across Australia.
Providing non-surgical care to patients, physicians deal with a wide range of problems, illnesses, and injuries. They are also trained to diagnose and care for those with complex illnesses.
Office ergonomics in the healthcare industry
Ergonomics simply involves an office or workplace setting that has been designed with comfort, health, and productivity in mind.
Ergonomics results in not only fewer risks of health issues, pain, and injury, but in fact also leads to a more alert, productive, and happier workplace!
neck & shoulder strain
Without getting to deep into the structure of the body, when you sit, your chest muscles (pectorals) start to shorten, while simultaneously, your back muscles lengthen.
The result? An imbalance between the muscles at the front and back of your body, resulting in tightness, stiffness, and pain around the chest, shoulders, and neck.
on the spine
Let’s face it – most of us have poor posture, slumping in our chairs and contorting our bodies into all sorts of angles.
As soon as we stand, we instantly alleviate that unnecessary pressure placed on our spines, and also maintain improved spinal alignment.
Get your blood pumping and enjoy better circulation during your workday as you split your time between sitting and standing.
Improved blood flow keeps your brain focused and mind fresh, allowing you to be more productive at work! Better circulation also reduces the risk of Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT).
Prolonged sitting can lead to muscle atrophy – a condition where the muscles in your legs and glutes weaken. This can increase your risk of injury. The takeaway? Use it or lose it!
Prolonged sitting can also shorten your hip flexors, leading to hip and lower back pain.
