Sit-Stand Desk Benefits


It is difficult to accommodate a diverse workforce with a standard “one size fits all” desk. Adjustable desks give users the capability to choose a working position that is ideal for their body. This helps eliminate discomfort caused by a “desk that does not fit” such as insufficient leg space and too high keyboard/monitor heights.

Increase productivity

People need to get out of their chair and move at least five minutes per hour. Micro-breaks reduce fatigue. Many employees do not have the flexibility to get away from their workstations every hour. Using a sit-stand desk allows employees to take a break from their static posture without leaving their area.


Electric adjustable desks allow users to comfortably and quickly adjust to the task at hand by the touch of a button. For instance a co-worker or a customer drops in, no problem... adjust the desk to a group working level and meet in comfort. As an added bonus, when you stand you can keep meetings and “on the fly” interruptions shorter.

Employee health and wellness

Studies have shown that alternating between sitting and standing results in less discomfort and reduces the amount of fatigue many people feel at the end of the work day.

Workplace physical activity programs have also been shown to reduce sick days by up to 32 percent (source: James A Levine, MD, PhD, Mayo Clinic and Selene Yeager).

A study from the Mayo Clinic shows you can burn an additional 340 calories a day if you spend two hours of your work day standing instead of sitting.

Prevent injury

Fitting the workstation to your individual needs can reduce the causes of work related stress. Alternate between sitting and standing and reduce these risks much further by avoiding problems caused by static posture or positions.
