Adjustable height desks are becoming more and more common both at home and in the workplace. This is for many reasons, but the most important one is for ergonomic factors. Sitting all day long at a desk starting at a computer screen can lead to some adverse health risks.
For this reason, we are strong advocates of using an ergonomic adjustable height desk. With this sort of desk, you can still sit at times, but you can also work while standing up. This helps out immensely with back strain, eye and neck fatigue, Repetitive Stress Injuries (RSI) such as carpal tunnel syndrome, and much more. You also strengthen your lower body and burn calories, so if you're looking to get in better shape an adjustable height desk is a great idea!
You can ease into standing at your desk. You don't have to stand all day long. You can do it for an hour or two at a time and then sit for a while, letting your legs get stronger and more used to it. In fact standing at your desk all day isn't good for you either - the idea is to switch it up and do everything in moderation. But sitting still for 8 hours isn't what was intended for our bodies.
Getting a good adjustable height desk can lead to less employee absenteeism and better productivity as well. Standing for a portion of the day leads to better blood flow, less static pressure and better posture. Whether people realize it or not, their attitudes change because they feel better. Overall this can have a profound effect upon any business and is well worth the initial upfront investment in our opinion.
