What the Standing Desk Can Do for Your Health. Sedentary lifestyles that involve prolonged periods of sitting have been linked to a variety of health problems, including obesity, heart disease and chronic back pain. Our bodies were not designed to be inactive for hours on end. Our biological processes, from metabolism to joint lubrication, rely on movement.
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.
If you prefer to use a laptop with a separate keyboard and mouse pad, opt for a portable standing laptop desk that will both elevate your laptop to eye-level and provide an additional secure platform to support your laptop and mouse. Using a separate keyboard can be a good idea for laptop users as most laptop keyboards are too small and promote the unnatural, inward shoulder rotation. Also, the use of a separate keyboard can allow users to elevate laptops to a higher, more natural position that promotes proper standing posture.
