Why Sit Stand Desks? - Right Angle NewHeights

You might want to "stand" for this!

There are so many reasons to make the switch to a sit stand desk. I am going to point out just a couple of the major reasons  why purchasing a Right Angle Products NewHeights sit stand desk is going to make a positive impact on your productivity.

Helps reduce certain health conditions!

According to the Mayo Clinic, "Researchers have linked sitting for long periods of time with a number of health concerns, including obesity and metabolic syndrome — a cluster of conditions that includes increased blood pressure, high blood sugar, excess body fat around the waist and abnormal cholesterol levels."

Activating certain muscles while standing can help with the breakdown of fats and sugars. Yes that's right you're burning calories while standing and still doing you job.  Keep in mind calorie burn is minimal.

Increased Focus and Concentration!

Think about the last time you were in a meeting, reclined back in the conference chair and wondering when is it going to end. We tend to daydream when sitting for extended periods of time. Now think about how we interact with one another; we typically stand up for engagement and to be attentive to our guest. Utilizing a standing desk can help keep your energy levels up and maximize productivity throughout the workday.

According Research by Max Vercruyssen, Ph.D at the University of Southern California showed......"Standing up also increases your ability to pay attention, speeds up your ability to process information by 5% to 20%, and increases blood flow (and oxygen) to the brain by 10% to 15%."


We all know there's no silver bullet to health and fitness or productivity at work; however subtle changes in lifestyle can help at least get the the ball rolling. Since we are spending so much time in the office and in front of our computers make the switch to a standing desk. Contact me with any questions or sample requests in the Southern California market.

USC Lab Selects Height Adjustable Tables

USC Lab Selects Height Adjustable Tables

Last month I wrapped up a project with the University of Southern California in which they decided to use Right Angle Products New Heights Series 4 height adjustable tables.  The students in the lab are of all shapes and sizes, so incorporating the height adjustable lab tables was perfect. USC decided on the New Heights XT model for it's heavy duty capability. The XT Series height adjustable desk has a travel range of 24-51" with a two stage leg and with a lift capacity of 160 lbs per column this table can handle anything thrown its way.  The control panel is easy to operate with an iphone touch screen and slides under the work surface for protection against employees bumping into it. Right Angle also offers a 3-switch programmable for multi-shift environments. Sit stand desks are perfect call centers, offices, schools, hospitals and libraries. Right Angle can even retrofit the bases to your existing work surfaces.
