To incorporate more standing and movement in one`s day, many office workers have switched either full-time or part-time to a standing desk. A standing desk is commonly a cumbersome and expensive investment. Traditional are similar to full-size office furniture and are as portable as a ton of bricks. They are large pieces of furniture that once purchased rarely move from their setup location. Moving these traditional can be quite difficult.
Sitting at a desk all day not only leads to lots of different injuries, but it also takes years off your life. One option for this is to buy a standing desk. This means that instead of sitting all day you will be standing up. This is far healthier and it will also help you keep your weight down. What follows are just a few tips for anyone who is considering buying this type of desk.
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.
Foot Stools. One of the great things about an adjustable desk is that it allows you to change position as needed. If you want to give yourself even more options of positions for your standing desks, adjustable height workstations, stand up desks or other similar products, a footstool can be a great investment.
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.
