Products that will improve your health and productivity
Our bodies were designed to move – to hunt and gather and then later to tend the fields and crops. We had to be on our feet to feed ourselves, to live. But with the modern world and the arrival of technology (the motor car, the very comfortable lounge chair, grocery stores, TV’s, computers and, of course, the desk job) comes the arrival of back pain and weight gain.
We have been helping bodies move for nearly 30 years. Yes, even before it was fashionable to have a sit to stand desk, we have been supplying them to offices throughout Australia.
Sit-to-Stand workstations help break up long periods of inactivity and sitting by raising your desk or computer to standing height, allowing you the freedom to move around without interrupting your work. The sit-to-stand workstations fall into two main categories – sit to stand desks, and desktop sit-to-stand portable workstations. Portable sit-to-stand workstations are a great way to experience the benefits of a sit-to-stand desk without the high cost of a new desk.
So it should come as no surprise that research is overwhelmingly in favour of the benefits of Sit to Stand Desks. A Study Published in the Transactions on Occupational Ergonomics and Human Factors Journal followed 167 employees at a call centre, of whom 74 used sit-to-stand desks. Their results surprised even them with employees using sit to desks having an increase of 46% in productivity. Other research has shown that sit to stand can improve health by reducing user weight, lowering blood pressure, improving mood and a whole host of other benefits that would make you sceptical of this information given its source. So we strongly recommend you investigate the benefits for yourself.
Our range of Sit to Stand Desks comply to Australian Standards, are AFRDI tested and approved and are available on the State Government Contract and Department of Defence Standing Offer, to make buying even easier.
