  • Sit Stand Workstations

    Did you know that sitting for long periods can increase your risk of heart disease and other medical problems? Standing for long periods can also cause health problems, as our muscles are kept in a constant state of contraction. A sit stand workstation can help you to change posture during the workday, ensuring that you don’t sit or stand for too long at a time. So, could you benefit from a sit stand work station? If you experience pain or discomfort when sitting for 30 minutes or less, or have a job that keeps you confined to your desk for the greater part of the day, then a sit to stand desk might be able to help you.

    What health benefits do sit stand desks provide?

    You could enjoy a number of sit stand workstation benefits that are related directly to your health. These include:

    Brain
    Activity

    When sitting for long periods, our brain function slows due to lack of fresh blood and oxygen being pumped around our bodies. This results in a lack of the brain and mood enhancing chemicals we need to stay alert, causing tiredness to set in – even if we’re not actually tired.

    Heart
    Disease

    Our muscles burn less fat and our blood flows slower when sitting. This can actually allow fatty acids to easily clog the heart. This can result in high blood pressure and elevated cholesterol, which can eventually lead to heart disease. A raising desk will keep blood moving.

    Back
    Problems

    Sitting for long periods prevents nutrients and fresh blood from entering the soft, spongy discs between our vertebrae. This can result in hard support tendons and ligaments. Weight is also distributed unevenly between vertebrae, often leading to spine problems.

     

    Inner
    Health

    When sitting, calorie burning drops to 1 per minute and the breakdown of fat enzymes drops 90%. On top of this, good cholesterol drops 20% and insulin effectiveness drops 24%. Lower the risk of diabetes, amongst other issues, by using a stand up sit down desk.

    Muscle
    Problems

    Sitting actually causes the electrical activity in our leg muscles to shut off, which can lower our ability to maintain a powerful stride. Standing causes the muscles in our legs to be constantly contracted. Sit to stand workstations can help you to create a balance between the two.

    Poor
    Circulation

    When sitting, blood circulation is slowed. This can cause fluid to pool in our legs, leading to swollen ankles and varicose veins. It can also lead to more serious health problems, such as blood cots (deep vein thrombosis, or DVT). A standing computer workstation can help prevent this.
