Standing desks provide the user with the ability to alter the height of the surface – lower it so that you can comfortably type whilst sitting and raise it when giving your legs a stretch by standing. We offer manual (crank handle) and electric desks, both of which are easy to use and will enable you to set the surface to the desired height.Read More about Standing Desks

What are the benefits of standing desks?
Stand up desks have proven to offer users a number of benefits, including:
Avoidance of Back Problems
Spending long periods of time seated can lead to serious back problems, as nutrients and fresh blood are prevented from passing into the soft, spongy discs between our vertebrae. This can lead to hard ligaments and tendons. Spending more time at sit stand desks can help to avoid many of these problems.
Blood circulation is slowed when we’re seated. Being seated for extended periods can cause fluid to pool in your legs (leading to swollen ankles and varicose veins) as well as more serious health problems (such as blood clots). Standing on occasion will ensure that the necessary blood circulation is allowed for.
Inner Health Improvements
Alternating between sitting and standing can have many positive benefits on your health, including a reduced risk of diabetes and weight loss. When seated, calorie burning drops to 1 per minute, the breakdown of fat enzymes drops around 90% and good cholesterol drops 20%.
