Employers may also want to follow in the paths of Google and Facebook company heads by incorporating standing desks into their offices. Workers have reported increased energy and productivity throughout the day when standing.
Tips on Choosing a Standing Desk. Obesity and heart disease are two of the top killers among Americans today. Both of these diseases can be linked to a poor diet and lack of exercise. In today`s environment, we spend most of our time sitting at home, or at the office, and don`t spend enough time being active and moving. Sitting for too long has become a major problem. In fact, many medical professionals are now talking about `sitting disease.` Sitting for too long not only can cause us an early death, but our quality of life can suffer as well. When we sit in the same place for too long, our muscles begin to atrophy. This can lead to serious injuries if we aren`t careful.
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.
A portable standing desk is a good choice for workers that move offices frequently or work from multiple office locations. These portable stands typically elevate desktop monitors and screens to make standing more comfortable. Product flexibility and adjustability are the key attributes of a useful portable standing desk. A standing desk that can move with you is a great idea for people that frequently work from different locations. Many of these ergonomic tables can support both laptop and desktop computers.
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.
