The Benefits of a Standing Desk
At Ergo Desks, we specialise in Standing Desks which give our customers the choice to dynamically switch between working in a seated or standing position throughout the day.
With the advancement of technology, modern day life has become largely centred around the use of a computer while sitting at a desk. A huge number of people spend more than 8 hours a day siting stationary at their desks with only the occasional break to get the body moving. With Ergo Desks, you can switch up your position and posture at the touch of a button, with our fantastic range of Electric Standing Desks.
Numerous studies have shown prolonged sitting to be linked to a myriad of health issues including diabetes, muscle disorders, obesity, heart disease, and even depression. Opting for a sit-stand approach with a standing desk instead of sitting all day helps avoid these issues and can also benefit productivity and office collaboration. By spending your workday at a standing desk, you are not only more focused, but more mobile and agile making it easier to pop across to a colleague for an impromptu meeting (although one could argue for the fun of wheeling a chair across the room).
Choosing a standing desk allows you to take advantage of the numerous benefits they offer:
- Increased metabolism and calorie burn
- Reduced risk of diseases including obesity and heart disease
- Increased weight loss
- Increased energy and focus
- Reduced muscle/back pain
- Increase productivity and collaboration
