Why Use a Standing Desk at Work? 7 Benefits

The workplace is where you spend a bulk of your time throughout the week; it’s important to be comfortable and focus on healthy habits. While everyone has their own reasons to transition to a standing desk, those who do tend to feel more focused, productive, energized and alert in the office after making the switch. By having employees remain upright while working, the office sees the following seven great benefits:

  1. Lower Rates of Obesity and Heart Disease

The average employee sits for at least 6 hours per day, which can lead to many negative, chronic health problems like back pain, higher blood pressure and muscle soreness. Workers also burn more calories when standing, which leads to a lower risk of obesity-related illness.

According to a recent study, “Employees who worked at stand-capable desks sat on average for nearly 1.6 hours less per day than their seated co-workers. Prolonged sitting has been linked with many health risks, including obesity, heart disease and diabetes. So it’s not too surprising that standing workers exemplified better health habits, including decreased sedentary time and physical discomfort, as well as higher steps and burned calories.” Read More

What to Look for in a Standing Desk: 4 Features

  1. Flexibility

Some experts believe standing at work is only beneficial to a certain extent and it’s detrimental to stay on your feet for the whole day since it puts extra pressure on your legs and joints. To avoid negative consequences of a standing desk, opt for one that offers flexibility and adjustability. Look for a model with a changeable height and remember one size doesn’t always fit all.

  1. Sturdiness

Many lower-priced standing desks can seem like a good option, but lack the weight and quality you need in a viable workstation. Make sure the model you choose is sturdy enough to work on and offers a lot of desk space; you won’t want to feel like you’re losing something by standing up.

  1. Affordability

While you likely want to try standing at work, neither you nor your employer wants to break the bank. The best standing desks aren’t necessarily top-of-the-line models; we have several mid-ranged and affordably priced options in our showroom and are happy to find a custom solution that works for you.

  1. Tech-Friendly Design

Many standing desks are simply a flat surface; this can be great for space efficiency but not very convenient for desk items, storage or computer cables. When choosing a standing desk, look for options that have space for wires, computers and monitors.

Flexibility, adjustability, sturdiness, affordability and a tech-friendly design are all features to look for when choosing a standing desk. For more tips on ergonomics in the office, read additional articles on our blog today or contact us.
