As adults, we spend most of our days at work and for those of us who have office jobs, this means sitting down for long periods of time. It contributes to a more sedentary lifestyle and affects our general wellbeing greatly, not to mention our posture. At Ergolab we believe that ergonomic comfort is the key to a healthy, balanced lifestyle, in and out of the office. That is why we trust in the innovative sit-stand desk.
Simply put, a sit-stand desk, or also known as a standing desk, is exactly as the name suggests, a desk that promotes easy movement between sitting and standing positions. A well-designed sit-stand desk adjusts between postures without interrupting your workflow.
There are countless benefits that come with using a sit-stand desk, so much so that a research project was launched by JustStand.org to prove this. Below is a list of some of the known benefits:
Who doesn’t want an extra pep in their step? The sit-stand desk improves your mental and physical health while you work, and transforms your life in remarkable ways.
If you are ready to improve your lifestyle and make the move to a comfier, healthier workspace, there are some key aspects to consider. When choosing the standing or sit to stand desk that is best suited to your needs you can start off by asking yourself these simple questions:
Humanscale desks are built primarily of top-quality steel and aluminium.
This will depend on the person using the desk. The Business and Institutional Furniture Manufacturer's Association (BIFMA) suggests a range between 22.6″ to 48.7″.
Make sure that the main assembly will be able to hold the weight of your equipment.
Be on the lookout for something like a self-locking mechanism to ensure that your safety is a priority.
These solutions, like the QuickStand ECO, are usually smaller than the complete standing desks, like the Float. Portable desks are easier to carry from one space to another. Both desks have great strengths and benefits, your choice will just depend on your needs.
Ideally, you want a simple and quiet transition without the cranking of noisy, slow motors.
Many people might ask if these standing desks are in fact actually worthwhile. Now, while Humanscale’s sturdy construction meets BIFMA requirements for load and capacity, it also brings consumers added peace of mind with a 10-year, 24/7 warranty. When it comes to safety, Humanscale makes use of a self-locking mechanism providing you with a safe and secure workspace. In addition, if you are not sold yet, we have a 30-day money-back guarantee policy and we advise you on the best ergonomic solutions, free of charge.
Our Team at Ergolab knows that your personal space and style matters to you, that’s why we are here to help you find the Humanscale standing desk solution that fits you, comfortably. Transform your office into a healthy, productive workspace that keeps you comfortable while you get the job done.
