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.
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.
It is a good idea that you buy a standing desk that can be converted back to a sitting desk. This is especially important for the first few weeks when you begin using the standing desk. It can get very tiring and so the ability to go back to sitting for an hour or so will be very welcome; especially at the end of the day.
For completely mobile workers or those of us that spend most of our time on laptops, standing more frequently is simplified with the use of a portable standing laptop desk. There are several varieties of these portable laptop desks to choose from. If you prefer to type directly on your laptop, look for a simple portable standing laptop desk that elevates laptops and also has a panel to adjust the screen angle.
Most standing desks are very simplistic in design, involving a shelf for a computer, a shelf for a keyboard and sometimes an extra shelf or drawer for other belongings. Some are the length of regular desks, while others are simply made to be computer stations. Depending on the intricacy and features of the desk, the price can range from $150 to many thousands of dollars. The most expensive are the hydraulic adjustable desks that serve as both full-size sitting and standing desks.
