More and more research shows the harmful effect of remaining in the one position for too long. We also know intuitively (and from experience), that this is not good for us.
Again, more and more of us are chained to a desk for most of our working day, stuck in the same position for hours on end. Our bodies can literally seize up due to the inactivity forced on us by remaining seated at a desk for too long.
We all know we should get out of our chairs and get regular breaks, but how many of us actually do this regularly?
What we need is a different approach to working, which offers the chance to vary the working position almost wothout even thinking about it.
This is where height adjustable desks are so good.
What is a height adjustable desk?
As the name suggests, it is simply a desk where the working height can quickly be changed to permit working at it, either seated or standing. The height can be precisely adjusted to suit the individual, either when seated, or when standing.
Depending on the desk, this can be done at the push of a button, or by a mechanically operated manner.
Why are they better than the traditional fixed desk?
Apart from anything else, the height can be specifically adjusted to suit each individual.
Working at a fixed desk for long periods presents little opportunity for much postural variation. Altering chair height is a good thing, but is of course limited to the range of adjustment, and still the focus is on a seated posture.
Adjusting the actual height of the desk itself is a much better solution, providing for much better postural variation during working hours.
This variation helps keep muscles active, improves blood circulation, assists in maintaining alertness and concentration, and alleviates many other potential issues.
