Height Adjustable Desk

Height adjustable tables are becoming more and more popular within the workplace.  With recent articles floating around the internet about sitting will kill you and standing is best who to say which is best for you. So to help you decide I would like to point out a few advantages the height adjustable workstations have and some features you may want to consider when shopping for one.

  1. Alternating between sitting and standing. We all know that we are sitting longer and longer each day. Sitting at the office while staring at a computer screen is no fun and take into account when we come home we continue to sit and use electronics. With height adjustable workstation having the ability to maintain the proper work surface height while sitting is just as important as the ability to stand and work. Most adjustable height tables will meet the needs of individuals of all shapes and sizes.
  2. Burn More Calories. Who doesn't want to burn a few extra calories while working. Standing throughout the day can burn up to an extra 160 calories according to research conducted by Journal of Physical Activity and Health.
  3. Improved Attention. Nothing says get going like standing. So why not stand when working or performing office functions. Try to notice how attentive you are while standing the next time you are on the phone with someone.
  4. You become the popular kid in the office. With most office having cubicle farms or collaborative working environments it might be awkward to get a height adjustable desk when nobody else has one. Yes you might get a few looks the first couple of days but I promise employees will begin to ask if standing is worth it.
