According to a study conducted by the Heart Foundation in collaboration with the University of Sydney, most of us working in a full time job where we are "mostly sitting" spend on average 6.3 hours a day in a seated position.
Prolonged sitting and other sedentary behaviours have been proven to increase the risk of serious health problems such as diabetes, cardiovascular diseases and musculoskeletal disorders.
The solution to our sedentary behaviour is to be more active, no surprise here. Alternating between a sitting and standing position throughout the day allows muscles to stretch and stay active, minimises back and neck pain, improves blood circulation and increases our overall fitness level by burning 30% more calories than sitting down.
Going for walks at lunch time, doing stretches, having informal meetings over counter tables, using stairs instead of the lift are all great ways to increase our overall daily activity.
Another effective way to achieve this is by using a height adjustable desk allowing to change from a sitting to a changing position within seconds. The study shows that employees with access to such desks were reducing their sitting time by a whopping 20%.
Our Lift S range of height adjustable workstations, desks and meeting table has been designed with just that in mind. With a winder or an electronic option available, standing at your desk has never been easier. The electronic version allows you to program up to 4 different heights and reaches a maximum height of 1,240 mm.
Lift S is available in various workstations configurations, single desks and meeting tables ensuring that everyone in the office, no matter where they sit, can benefit from it.
With a clean and sleek design, Lift S will fit into every office.
