Some of the negative effects of prolonged sitting are:
- Increased diabetic risk
- Increased risk of heart problems
- Weight gain
- Back and spine problems
Here is where (drum roll)...the standing desk steps in. A 21st century revolutionary piece of office furniture that is changing the way people work. The standing desk has a reputation for keeping productivity levels high and staff smiling through the work day.
So how is the standing desk a solution? Is standing all day healthier than sitting all day?
The key is not to keep standing all day, because prolonged standing has its own negative effects on health and well being.
Our standing desk mats like the OZONE, SUREFOOT and ARMOURSTEP are the perfect companions to the trend setting, healthier standing desks. These anti-fatigue mats make easy for your feet and back, adding to the benefits of a standing desk.
We had a blog post in 2014 on standing desks, which was a time the standing desk was a relatively new concept. But now, after 3 years we can see that it is definitely catching on in New Zealand. The evidence lies in the fact that some of our standing desk mat range have been in great and ever increasing demand.
Don't wait to make the switch to standing desks! The benefits are proven and are worth the investment in these desks and standing desk mats.
