Research has shown that sitting at a desk all day can have an impact on office workers health. Being sedentary can often lead to problems with the circulatory system, and people with sitting jobs can have twice the rate of cardiovascular disease as those who stand at work.
Add in the facts (or at least those claimed by some research) that long periods of sitting can lead to obesity and diabetes, not to mention increased blood pressure, it is clear that sitting at a desk all day can lead to some serious health issues.
Making a stand for better health
However, using a standing workstation, for all or part of the day, can bring some welcome benefits.
It sounds incredible but using a standing workstation for just three hours a day over five working days every week can equate to the same activity levels as if you ran 10 marathons during the course of the year.
Standing can also reduce the risks of cardiovascular disease and diabetes. It isn't a surprise then that standing workstations are becoming more popular in offices up and down the country.
Standing doesn't just benefit your health
Office workers who use standing workstations often report how surprised they are at how comfortable they feel. Standing can lead to workers becoming more productive and creative.
