pprk. Desks. August 09th , 2017.
Of course, standing all day in one position is almost as bad as sitting all day. Standing desks can be equipped with high stools and footrests to allow you to rest your feet and legs occasionally. As with a normal sit-down desk, it is also important to move around, such as by taking a few minutes to stretch every hour or taking brief walks around the office.
Many office workers are seeking to reduce the risk of back pain and other health problems by switching out their standard desks for standing desks. These allow you to maintain an upright position throughout the day and encourage more movement, as you`re already on your feet.
Standing desks have become extremely popular lately, and now they come in a lot of different shapes and sizes. Some even come with optional accessories like a built in treadmill or exercise bike (however, I am not sure sweating at work is a good idea).
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.
Storage. One of the most important things for all desks is storage options. While most height adjustable workstations will include at least a shelf or two, this is not always enough for everyone. Some people have a great deal of paperwork or office supplies that they need to keep by their desk. That is why there are several shelving options available, including a great side shelf that you simply add to the side of your standing desk, allowing you to enjoy your extra storage. This is a great way to add extra storage to your desk for your important paperwork or even your computer tower if need be.
