More and more of us are sitting for longer in the office or at home at a desk, yet the number of those using a standing desk has soared in the last 12 months.
Levels of dangerous office sitting time has doubled under lockdown, with around half of the UK workers spending almost their whole day sitting down, according to the latest annual sitting survey from Active Working.
Height adjustable desks are designed to keep workers healthy and more productive whilst working. Offering a ‘sit-stand’ experience, an adjustable standing desk can be adjusted to suit the user’s individual proportions and preferred working position.
Providing added flexibility, these innovative pieces of furniture can help make workstations more comfortable and convenient.
47% of us spend practically the entirety of our working day (seven hours or longer) seated, this figure is up from just 26% pre pandemic.
Spending long periods seated at a desk Is proven to damage your health, contributing to conditions including obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, joint and back issues. This makes it very clear that we all need to sit less and move more to ensure good physical and mental health.
As in all things, moderation is the key, but standing to work for a short time, or holding standing meetings can make you healthier, happier, and better able to concentrate.
