Getting more work done isn’t always a case of working 'harder'. Sometimes, a simple change to how you work can have an incredible effect on both your output and mental state throughout the working day.
A standing desk is one addition to your home or commercial office that will make sure that both you and your work output remain healthy, all with the convenient touch of a button. In this blog, we’ll explore what a standing desk is, and why you need one.

How a Standing Desk Works
At Ergo Desks, we’ve compiled a wide range of adjustable sit-stand desks in a variety of sizes and styles to suit all needs and tastes. They make it an absolute breeze to enjoy the benefits of a standing desk while retaining the option of switching back to a sitting desk at your own leisure.
At the touch of a button, an electric motor will quickly and smoothly raise or lower the desk to a height tailored for you. The simple interface is simple to control meaning you don’t have to stick with some pre-programmed height that isn’t ideal, you can move the electric desk to a level that is both practical and comfortable.
This feature can be especially useful in a commercial office environment where you might have numerous staff members working from the same workstation or ‘hot desk’. Each employee can have their own height profile, and at the touch of a button get the standing desk to manoeuvre into their chosen position.
Why a Standing Desk is Important
The sit-stand desk revolution is well underway, and thousands of people across the country and realising the immense benefits of introducing a standing phase to their working day.
Firstly, there are the physical benefits. Humans aren’t designed to be seated at a desk all day, let alone hunched over their keyboard for hours on end. As a result, many office workers start to suffer back pain and posture issues – and this is not just an age-specific issue, this can easily effect younger people.
Spending half the day sitting and half the day standing helps to keep your body fit and healthy, but it isn’t just a case of starting now to prevent issues down the line. In fact, switching to a standing desk has shown to alleviate back pain issues that have already manifested.
However, physical health benefits are just one factor. Many people who have made the switch note how much easier it is to remain focused when up on their feet. Posture and focus are more linked than you might think, and slouching back in your chair makes it far too easy for your mind to drift off and tiredness to set in.
When this lull starts to set in and over-relaxation starts to take hold, just hit the button on our height adjustable desks and you’ll be up on your feet and hyper-focused in next to no time.
With today’s announcement from the UK government in regards to new coronavirus restrictions, office workers are being asked to work from home if possible for potentially another six months. As a result, an efficient home office is more important than ever, and one of our electric desks can help to make sure you remain as productive as possible.
All of our desks include Free Mainland UK Delivery, directly to your front door. Additionally, although we go to great lengths to ensure that all of our desks are as easy to assemble as possible, we also have a series of videos available on YouTube to make the process even easier.
