Sit to Stand Desks
Sit to stand desks are the easiest way to improve your health and work experience today! Simply put, you stand more while you work! The result is that you improve circulation, reduce joint and back pain, and promote mental clarity and concentration. You can either buy a desk that effortlessly transitions to accommodate both sitting and standing, or you can transform a regular desk into a sit to stand desk with a riser or stand. The choice is yours, and your health is in your hands!
How does standing promote improved mental clarity and concentration?Because sitting for extended periods of time leads to fatigue, and a fatigued body leads to a fatigued mind!
It hurts for me to stand for extended periods of time!Use the Active Ergo Anti-Fatigue Mat. It reduces pain in your feet and joints by more evenly distributing your weight.
What’s the difference between the QuickStand and the QuickStand Lite?The QuickStand has a built in plug-and-play cable management system while the QuickStand Lite does not. Otherwise, both are equally easy to set up and both can support a dual monitor setup.
Are the Electronic Height adjustable Desk, the motorized StandDesk loud, or the ActiveErgo Sit to Stand Desk loud?They are not! They’re likely even quieter than your office air conditioner.
How else can I reduce joint and back pain other than alternating between sitting and standing?You can use a chair that has lumbar support and a waterfall style seat. Lumbar support encourages proper spine alignment by promoting a natural sitting. And a waterfall style seat, which gets its name from the fact that its edges slope slightly downward like a waterfall, promotes proper posture as well (a waterfall style seat also improves comfort by more evenly distributing weight).
Alternatively, you can use a kneeling chair. Standard chairs without ergonomic design simply prop up your back, leaving important muscle groups disengaged. A kneeling chair, meanwhile, forces you to use your abs, thighs, and lower back. As a result, your core is activated the entire time you use the chair! This leads to improved muscle tone, a stronger core, reduced pain in your joints and back, and improved concentration and clarity because you're less fatigued. And don't go thinking that your knees will ache from kneeling; the chair equally distributes weight between your spine, thighs, and shin.
