What are standing desks?

Standing desks have been about for centuries, and have been used by many historical figures such as Charles Dickens or Churchill. Electric height adjustable desks, however are an ergonomic innovation looking to replace the static workplace. Adjustable desk height ranging from seated and standing positions, allowing the user to switch up their position for a healthier lifestyle.


What are the benefits of standing desks?

As many jobs revolve around the use of computers for long periods at a time, sedentary lifestyles have become a lot more proponent. Multiple studies have linked many of today’s major health issues to a lack of physical activity in every day lives, while spending even just part of your day working at your desk standing up can improve posture and assist in burning a surprising number of calories.

How do they work?

The idea of height adjustable standing desks is to provide the user with the opportunity to switch between a seated and standing position while working. Or simply adjust the height for a more personalised and comfortable work environment! Although there are desks available which can be set at varying heights when being assembled, we specialise in ones which can be adjusted dynamically without having to spend a lot of effort re-configuring them. There are two main ways in which our desks can do this - by electric motor or a manual crank.
