With a shift in the modern workplace and growth of technology, the increase in a more sedentary lifestyle has created movements to promote employee health and wellbeing. Working styles are constantly evolving to allow for a healthy balance between sitting, standing and walking. This includes the introduction of height adjustable desks and tables, like our Swish and Rize which are a perfect solution to encourage movement.
Height adjustable desks allow users to easily adjust their work surface from a sitting to a standing position with a single tool, giving the user complete control of how they work. In addition, our Rize range includes height-adjustable side tables and meeting tables allowing employees to mix up the way they collaborate and conduct meetings.
Three benefits of height adjustable desks include:
Improved Health - With the increased risk of cardiovascular disease and diabetes from sitting all day, research has shown that switching to a sit-stand desk lowers blood sugar levels, lowers your risk of heart disease, improves metabolism and reduces back pain.
Improved Mood and Energy Levels - The popularity of sit-stand desks has had a positive impact on the employees overall well-being. By introducing desks like our Swish or Rize, users have shown to be less stressed and fatigued than those who remain seated all day.
Boosts Productivity - Being able to access a variety of postures throughout the day helps employees stay engaged with their work tasks. Standing has also been proven to stimulate circulation, sending more oxygen and nutrients to the brain, improving one's mental focus thus encouraging one to work more efficiently and increase performance.
