The research has been done and the results are in! The Sit Stand Workstation is not the latest health fad, they are here to stay and provide a multitude of health benefits to their users.
The sit to stand desk became popular after the turn of the century with much light being shed on the health hazards of sitting for long periods of time. Frankly, it was hard to believe some of the research as it was comparing those that sit at a desk all day in the same class with smokers and drinkers. Fast forward a decade, and the research doesn’t lie. People as well as businesses are getting on board, changing their unhealthy work day in to a more healthy one with the integration of a sit to stand desk.
Here’s some of the research to consider:
As outlined in the article “5 Health Benefits of a Standing Desk” the health advantages are clear:
1. Reduced risk of Obesity
2. Reduced risk of Type 2 Diabetes and other Metabolic problems
3. Reduced risk of Cardiovascular Disease
4. Reduced risk of cancer
5. Lower long-term mortality risk
One could say, “I exercise regularly so that must offset some of the disadvantages of sitting all day.” OSHA (our national safety and health organization) has backed up these findings and says, “No.”, even if you exercise regularly, sitting for long periods can increase your risk of heart disease and other medical problems.
Ok, now let’s look at it from a business perspective, a comfortable employee must be a more productive employee, right? Indeed! In an article “Call Center Productivity Over 6 Months Following a Standing Desk Intervention” research found that offering employees the option to sit or stand while performing their duties increased not only their comfort but also their productivity by almost 50%!
