Type Of Desks Standing Desks You Need To Check Out
A standing desk, also known as a sit-stand desk or stand-up desk, allows you to stand up comfortably while working. Most of the modern versions of these desks allow its user to adjust the height with the push of a button or turn of a knob. To incorporate maximum movement with your monitors, as well as having a standing desk with keyboard, you may want to consider both a monitor stand and a sit-stand desk.
Below you’ll see a few examples of dual computer monitor stands and sit-stand desks that our expert technicians can help you install.
Reasons To Change To A Standing Desk
Let’s be honest, sitting all day isn’t good for anyone. Burning fewer calories than you consume leads to weight gain and burning more calories than you consumer leads to weight loss. Did you know standing, as opposed to sitting, burns more calories?
The number of calories burned while standing is not drastically different than the number of calories while sitting, but stats show you burn about 170 more calories while standing in the same time-frame you would while sitting. According to the National Center for Biotechnology, that could mean you’ll burn about 1,000 extra calories a week!
Alleviate Back Pain
Posture is hard to keep when you’re tired and sitting in an office chair. If you get that urge to slouch, just stand up; and move your monitors and keypad with you! It is much easier to hold your posture while standing up than it is while you’re sitting.
If you work at a desk all day, or in an office, you have heard one of your coworkers complain of back pain. Now, instead of agreeing with them, you can offer a solution.
Studies have shown that using a sit-stand desk can reduce back pain by 54%, and those improvements can reverse in as fast as two weeks if you return to sitting all day.
Stay More Awake Throughout The Day
How hard is it for the average person to fall asleep while standing? We aren’t sure, but it can’t be easy!
Sedentary time can be defined as spending a lot of time sitting and/or being somewhat inactive. That definition alone shows that being stationary goes hand in hand with being inactive. By using a standing desk, you force the body to be physically active which keeps the mind awake.
When you are more awake, you are more productive. This is the reason for coffee, right? Imagine having that “espresso shot” type energy without drinking any coffee. Sit-stand desks can give you that, studies show.
When standing you will not have the option to procrastinate by taking time to slouch or rest head on your arm. By being on your feet, your workday doesn’t allow for one to intermittently complete tasks because rest times become fewer and far between. Having dual monitors installed on a sit-stand desk will produce more productivity with employees.
