Desk Risers for Sale Online in Australia
The Australian government has equated our sedentary office lifestyle as being as dangerous as smoking to the health of our nation. Sitting at a desk all day can have an impact on both physical and mental health, and many offices are adopting different policies to ensure that their staff are keeping mobile.
Buy Desk Risers & Improve the Health of Your Office
One of the most popular ways to do this is the ‘sit stand’ desk. These desks can be adjusted to allow the user to either sot, or stand, as they require – however they work best.
Here at Buy Direct Online, we have a wide range of Sit Stand desks available to purchase – but we have also got a low-cost alternative to replacing all the desks in your office – the Desk Riser
What Health Issues Can be Minimised With a Desk Riser?
If you are constantly and consistently sitting in one position at a desk, you are putting yourself at risk of many health problems.
According to Safe Work Australia, prolonged sitting is associated with issues like:
- Musculoskeletal disorders
- Cardiovascular disease
- Premature death
Over 50% of Australians sit for prolonged periods of time – on average 7-10 hours – and while that is not only in office situations (other occupations such as truck drivers and crane operators spend the majority of their working day sitting) there are steps that can be taken to reduce this sedentary time.
The best way to escape from the 7-10 hours sitting is to interrupt this time with something else, whether that be taking mini breaks every 30 minutes, taking a walk on a regular basis and interspersing sitting work with standing work.
Adding a desk riser – especially an adjustable one – can help you to make sure your office is flexible.
Why Buy Desk Risers From BuyDirectOnline.com.au?
If you're looking to transform your office space into a more ergonomic working environment, then a desk riser is the best solution. Desk risers or height adjustable desks have long been a hot topic of office ergonomics and have helped lead the way when it comes to reducing operator fatigue and discomfort in the workplace. With sitting being branded as the new smoking for its supposed health risks, especially for employees that sit-down at their desk all day, more and more companies want to do everything they can to look after their staff.
Desk risers are a great solution to combat fatigue and lower back pain as they allow the user the flexibility to both stand up and sit down whilst working. Desk risers are a fantastic, cheaper alternative to standalone height adjustable desks which also allows you save time not having to fit-out a whole entire office space with new standalone desks. These desk additions are also great for personal use if you work from home or hate sitting in a chair whilst you study. If you're looking for an office furniture solution that is quick, cost-effective and hassle-free, investing in desk risers for you and your employees could see productivity and efficiency increase tenfold.

What is a Desk Riser and How Can it Help?
Our desk risers can improve seating position and reduce back pain by adjusting the height of parts of your desk.
Some of our desk risers are set at a height and cannot be adjusted. These are brilliant for
raising the monitor so that it is in your eyeline or adjusting the position of a keyboard to reduce fatigue and stress on the wrists.
The adjustable desk risers we have available are mostly gas powered, making them simple to adjust – even multiple times in a day.
Check out some of the desk risers we have available on our product page – and look out for the risers that come with a free anti-fatigue mat.
These mats have been designed to work alongside the sit-to-stand style desks, to reduce pressure on the hips, knees, ankles and feet while standing in one position all day. Users of these mats have reported a reduction in general body fatigue, varicose veins, spinal compression, sore calves, shin splints and swollen ankles – so they are an excellent addition to a more mobile office.
