pprk. Desks. September 16th , 2017.
Some of these "sit to stand" desks can get pretty expensive, so it is a good idea to check all of your options and find something that is right for you. Standing desks can adjust either manually (the whole table is on a hinge) or electronically, where at the push of a button, the entire desk can elevate or descend to your exact height and needs.
The highest that a standing desk should reach to a person is the level of their elbows. The monitor of the computer being used should be placed right above the worker`s eye level. This will prevent a tilting of the head too far up or down throughout work. A chair should be designed to aid in a worker during an occasional rest period. This rest period can include a lean, or complete sitting. The ideal chair will not take up any work space.
Tips on Choosing a Standing Desk. Obesity and heart disease are two of the top killers among Americans today. Both of these diseases can be linked to a poor diet and lack of exercise. In today`s environment, we spend most of our time sitting at home, or at the office, and don`t spend enough time being active and moving. Sitting for too long has become a major problem. In fact, many medical professionals are now talking about `sitting disease.` Sitting for too long not only can cause us an early death, but our quality of life can suffer as well. When we sit in the same place for too long, our muscles begin to atrophy. This can lead to serious injuries if we aren`t careful.
Another common weak point in traditional is that they often only elevate the entire desk surface. These up/down desks do not improve the standing posture because they typically don`t elevate materials to eye-level. This causes people to hunch over books, documents, and screens while standing - which is of course not beneficial to your back or long-term health.
Back pain commonly occurs while sitting due to the strain poor posture places on the lower back. Even for people with a developed core muscle group, the abdominal muscles eventually give out during an 8-hour day of sitting, leaving the lower back muscles with the brunt of the work. When standing, your lower back muscles are assisted not only by stomach muscles, but by muscles of the pelvis, buttocks and legs to support the upper body`s weight.
