Health Benefits of Standing Desks

The Benefits of a Standing Desk

At Ergo Desks, we specialise in Standing Desks. Standing Desks give our customers the choice to dynamically switch between working in a seated or standing position.

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.

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. Standing at a standing desk instead of sitting helps avoid these issues and can also benefit productivity and office collaboration. By spending a portion of your workday standing up 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
