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.
If you are to buy a stand-up desk for your home office they can be prohibitively expensive; especially if you want a standing desk. A good option is to build your own one and that way you can save a fortune. There are many instructions for how to do this available for free on the web.
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.
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.
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.
