Do Sit-Stand Desks Really Help?

November 05, 2021

Sitting in a chair for nearly eight hours a day, five days a week, can really take a toll on your body. It doesn’t matter how comfortable your chair is—the human body just isn’t designed to be in that position for that long, that often. Fortunately for modern workers, there are plenty of solutions on the market that can help you keep moving and stay productive while at your desk.

Sit-stand desks are one such option. If you’ve seen one of these desks and wondered whether it’s the real deal or just a gimmick, here’s something to consider—these height-adjustable desks are becoming more popular now because they give people the freedom to choose how they’d like to work at any given time. If you’ve spent a few hours in your seat and want to take some strain off of your back, you can elevate your work area in seconds.

Stay Mobile, Stay Healthier

Spending an entire day in your seat has been linked to the development of several health conditions, including:

  • Chronic back pain
  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Muscle strains
  • Obesity
  • Sciatic nerve compression

Of course, it’s also not a great idea to stand all day. You’d still be at risk of developing chronic pain in your feet, legs, and back. So, a sit-stand desk that allows you to switch it up whenever you want is a great tool to help you find the perfect balance.
