Good Tips for Choosing a Standing Desk for Your Home Office. You may not realise it but sitting around the entire day is killing you. Humans have evolved to be moving around all day, and it will take many centuries of office work before the body adapts to the change. This means that we are poorly adapted to the modern work environment.
In addition to more movement and better circulation standing also burns more calories than sitting (about 300 more during the average eight-hour workday). One of the biggest chunks of time spent sitting is during the typical eight-hour work day. Incorporating more movement throughout the office employee`s workday can improve their overall health and happiness.
One option to curtail this sitting problem is the standing desk. A standing desk allows you to stand at your desk, with your computer and keyboard raised up to the standing position. Using a standing desk is far healthier than sitting, and will also burn up to three times as many calories.
Criteria. Your chair should be able to be adjusted to any needs regarding height. The worker`s elbows should be able to sit higher than the surface of the desk, while the fingers should point downward. The seat should be able to be tilted forwards and backwards. This will allow the most versatility possible. In order to keep good posture, there should be a lumbar support on the chair. There should also be a backrest that can be moved around to the satisfaction of the user.
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.
