At Topaz, we offer a range of standing desk systems that will help you to set up a workplace that is as ergonomic as possible. We have helped businesses Australia wide to get on their feet, including: Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide, Darwin, Canberra and Hobart.
So, how do adjustable stand up desks actually work?
Basically, they provide the user with the ability to alter the height of the tabletop – lower it when you wish to sit and raise it when you wish to stand. We have both manual and electronic stand up desks available, allowing you to choose the control option that best meets your needs. Both are incredibly easy to use and take very little effort.
Manual height adjustable workstations are simply activated by a crank handle and electronic workstations are activated by the simple push of a button.
What are the health benefits of using Height Adjustable Desks?
As noted above, the use of sit to stand desks offers a number of health benefits, including:
If you have already developed pain or an injury at work, the use of stand up tables can provide some relief. If you suffer from back pain, for example, you will be able to sit or stand as required. This can make the working day far more bearable and help to reduce the occurrence of sick leave.
Did you know that, when compared to sitting, you will burn close to a third more calories whilst standing? As well as helping you to maintain a health body weight, adjustable standing desks are helping to combat obesity – whilst they shouldn’t replace exercise, they can certainly supplement it.
There are a number of other general health benefits that have been linked to the use of adjustable height tables, including: improved circulation, a reduced risk of developing type 2 diabetes, and a reduced risk of developing cardiovascular disease. Your employees will feel happier and healthier all round.
