Height Adjustable Standing Desk

Research into ergonomics has shown that there is a correlation between long hours in a sitting posture and health issues such as RSI, back pain and reduced blood flow. A standing desk allows you to work comfortably from a standing position. A height adjustable desk allows you to easily switch between a sitting and standing position through-out your day to help avoid these health risks.

Benefits of a Standing/Stand Up Desk

Prolonged sitting can trigger a myriad of health and metabolic concerns for you. When your job requires sitting for 8 to 10 hours a day, even working out thereafter will not suffice to aid in maintaining a sound health. For years, researchers study the necessity of human ergonomics and came up with the idea of height adjustable desks or standing/stand-up desks. Buying stand-up desks can largely benefit your health as it allows you to stretch and move from an idle position.
