Standing desks have recently started to gain popularity in the workplace, and the reasons are quite obvious once you take a closer look at the facts behind how sitting at a desk affects your body. Many standing desks come with adjustable height features that allow them to be used either sitting or standing.
Ergo Depot has created a line of adjustable height standing desks that perfectly embody the ergonomic nature of design, which makes them ideal for human use on a long-term scale. These desks are controlled by a powerful motor that easily transitions the desk from one configuration to the other. These desks can adjust their height up to 20 inches, which is more than enough for the average user.
One line of desks from Ergo Depot is their Jarvis line, which is a perfect marriage of design, form, and function. These desks are durably made and can survive the most intense daily schedules.
Research has shown that desks like these are actually significantly healthier than normal sit-only desks. Doctors and scientists alike agree that fixed-height desks provide several negative side-effects that aren’t obvious at first, but they can be detrimental over time. Adjustable height desks allow for more freedom of movement, which translates to greater comfort.
When you sit at a fixed-height desk for several hours at a time, the circulation below your waist will start to diminish, and quickly. The majority of standard desk chairs cause blood to pool in very slight amounts on the back of your legs. This is caused by the pressure from the chair forcing capillaries shut, which slows blood flow and creates a backup in the system. Adjustable height desks allow for variable positions throughout the day, which has been shown to improve circulation not only through the legs but through the entire body.
Anyone who sits at a desk all day doing computer work will tell you that musculoskeletal pain is an unfortunate side-effect of sitting all day. However, a study by Cornell University recently showed that computer workers reported marked decreases in such pain after just a few short weeks using an adjustable height desk. Of the participants in the study, more than 80 percent stated their newly found preference for these adjustable desks. Other studies presented alongside this study showed how standing for a portion of the work day generally made workers feel better, even if their job didn’t require standing.
The dangers of sitting for long periods also extend to the formation of blood clots within the circulatory system. People who sit for more than 6 hours per day are shown to experience an increased mortality rate, and one study showed that number to be as high as 37 percent. Sitting literally causes a greater chance of death.
Workers who have the option of standing and working at an adjustable height desk are less likely to take breaks during the day, and they are generally more productive than those who sit all day. One study showed that those who stood all day noted significant improvements in their ability to concentrate and their attitude.
It won’t be long before standing desks are the norm for workplaces, especially once the benefits become more obvious within the market. Upgrading to a top-tier standing desk like those available from Ergo Depot is a great way to start the trend at your office.
