Millions of Britons are office workers, but sitting at a desk all day isn't natural for humans, and can lead to a host of problems for health, posture, and general productivity. Standing desks can help you to avoid these issues, but then again, you don't want to be on your feet at your desk all day either. Adjustable sit stand desks are a happy middle-ground, and we've taken the time to outline some of our key products so you can better pick what is right for you.
Are Standing Desks Any Good?
A standing desk is like any other product - some are better than others and you definitely get what you pay for. At Ergo Desks, we pride ourselves on providing a wide range of solutions to suit all needs, tastes, and budgets. However, everything we offer boasts a fluid motion so that they transition between positions like a yo-yo for an unrivalled experience.
In terms of what they can offer you, standing desks help you to stay mobile and active throughout the day. Not only does this have a positive effect on your health and wellbeing by promoting movement and circulation, but it can also help with your productivity by removing the temptation to slouch and keeping you focused!
How Long Should You Stand at a Standing Desk Each Day?
Although sitting at a desk all day can have a number of implications for your health, such as circulation problems and general lethargy, standing all day is equally impractical, becomes tiring, and will have diminishing returns. That's where adjustable desks come in - you can enjoy the best of both worlds.
In short, there's no black and white answer as to how much you should be standing throughout the day - some research suggests as little as 15 minutes every hour, other research has been as high as half an hour. The best thing to do is to give it a go and find out what works for you!
How Much Does a Standing Desk Cost?
Standing desks vary greatly in cost depending on what product you decide to go for, and we have a lot of choices to pick from. Not only can size affect prices, but also whether or not you want to go for electric adjustment or manual.
However, P&P to the UK mainland is always free through our reliable delivery partners (Ireland is an additional £40 while other islands are £85).
