Why Sit-Stand desks from Officeway?
Sit Stand desks are the gold standard in ergonomics for those who spend a significant amount of time working at their desk.
Changing your working position regularly helps to prevent back problems. While the risks of sitting all day have been well publicised in recent years, the answer isn’t to try to stand all day either.
According to Dr. Dunstan, who is head of physical activity at Baker IDI Heart and Diabetes Institute, “Don’t try to stand all day. This is the most important thing. It’s not one or the other. Frequent transitions between sitting and standing [and vice versa] are likely to be more sustainable than five hours straight standing.” (Read more about Dr. Dunstan’s findings here)
At Officeway, we only choose to sell desks with easy up and down operations. No fussy, fiddly height adjustments that discourage you from actually gaining the benefits of working at various heights.
Sit Stand desks are ideal for people for whom sitting all day is not an option, ie. individuals returning to work after back surgery.
They are also advantageous for groups who share the same workstation – ie. “Hot-desking” or constantly shift their working environment.
We have a range of sit stand solutions to suit all budgets and needs. There are simple, gas lift, economical solutions when only a small desk is needed. Electric desks come in a range of weight capacities and price points.
