Standing Desks and Healthy Design Are Here to Stay


Does your client’s workspace have a standing desk? If not, it might be time to consider one. Studies have shown that standing desks can have a significant impact on productivity, health, and wellbeing. With a height adjustable desk, your client can benefit from the ability to alternate between sitting and standing throughout the day.

In this article, we will look at 3 ways that an ergonomic standing desk can boost productivity.

1) Boosts focus and mood to increase productivity

Height adjustable desks provide the ability to alternate between sitting and standing throughout the day. This helps to improve focus and mood, resulting in increased productivity. Studies have revealed workers who can move between a sitting and standing position while they work experience less fatigue and higher levels of engagement. Additionally, this increased flexibility can lead to improved concentration levels, allowing users to tackle tasks more effectively.

Standing desks also help to increase blood flow, resulting in improved physical health, mental clarity, and a decrease in stress. When combined with ergonomic chairs, these desks can give support and comfort to stay productive for a longer period.

2) Increased energy levels

A height adjustable desk can be a fantastic way to improve energy levels during the day. By allowing users to stand while they work, the standing desk allows them to move around and change positions more often than if they were sitting all day. This increased physical activity can provide a boost of energy to get through the day. Studies have shown that people who stand at their desks report having more energy throughout the day than those who sit. Standing has also been linked to improved concentration and an improved mood, both of which can help to increase productivity levels. Therefore, incorporating a height adjustable desk into the workspace is an easy way to give an extra energy boost.

3) Improve posture

Standing desks are an ideal solution for improving posture. When sitting in a traditional desk chair, slouching can occur, leading to fatigue and poor posture. A height adjustable desk allows you to easily transition between sitting and standing, which can help improve posture and reduce pain. Standing at your desk helps maintain a neutral spine, strengthen core muscles, and reduce strain on neck and shoulders. This can help reduce pain in the lower back, as well as help you to breathe better, which in turn increases productivity. Additionally, when you can adjust the height of the desk, it allows you to find the perfect ergonomic position that works best for you and your body.
