    Benefits of Sit-Stand Desks

    Why Buy a Sit-Stand Desk?

    Sit-stand desks provide many benefits to employee health and productivity. The height-adjustable desks can be electrically adjusted to sitting or standing height to prevent problems associated with prolonged sitting at the touch of a button.

    Read some of the benefits below.

    1. Brain Activity

    If you stay fixed in one position, insufficient fresh oxygen-rich blood will be pumped around the body, causing brain function to slow down.

    3. MUSCLE PROBLEMS

    If you stay seated all day your leg muscles and gluteus muscles will become inactive, thus reducing your ability to sit up straight.

    5. POOR CIRCULATION

    Remaining seated for too long may result in swollen ankles and varicose veins, caused by fluids sinking down into the legs.

    2. Heart Risk

    Since muscles are less active while a person is seated they burn less fat. Together with a higher blood pressure and elevated cholesterol levels, this increases the risk of heart disease.

    4. BACK PROBLEMS

    Staying seated for long periods causes weight pressure to be unevenly distributed over the spine, leading to spinal problems in the lower back.
