Desk Bound? Stand To Health!Desk Bound? Stand to Health!

Varidesk offers different model offers that suit everyones working style and shape. Standing desks help burn up to 50 calories per hour, when used for 4 hours per working day, that is 1,000 calories per week, or 48,000-52,000, which is the same calories burnt as running 18 marathons!

 

Varidesk offer a range of desks to suit everyone. The main differences between The Varidesk Pro Plus 36 and the new Exec model is that the Exec’s monitor and keyboard trays extend an extra 5” higher to accommodate people 6’1” or taller. This will help to eliminate neck or back strain that may be caused by having monitors at the incorrect height. The Pro Plus 36 is popular for heights under 6″1″.

 

 

 

Varidesk’s sit-to-stand desk allows you to go from sitting to standing throughout the day and gain relief from the health benefits that are associated with standing whilst you work. It lifts in underr 3 seconds and is easy to do. It also has an app which reminds you to stand through the day and can be custom set.

 

Weight Loss

Most people don’t realise that sitting at a desk all day can negatively affect your weight. On average offices workers put on over 8lbs in their first year of work, and that standing instead could help to burn calories. Sitting for the full day can significantly slow your metabolic rate and can negate any workouts you do get in that day.

 

Reduced Back Pain

Back pain often occurs if you find yourself shifting too much in your chair to get comfortable or if your chair is the incorrect height for you. One study has found that switching between sitting and standing throughout the workday can lead to a 54% reduction in neck and back pain. Not only that but 95% of standing desk users felt some relief from lower back pain within 15 days.

 

Brain Health

Not only will standing at various points throughout the day increase your productivity by 46%, but a study by Texas A&M shows that continued utilisation of the stand-biased desks was associated with significant improvements in executive function and working memory capabilities. Making the decision to reduce occupational sitting time may have mental health benefits. This includes anxiety, depression, memory loss and any feeling associated with being overwhelmed and causes you to just not be yourself. Work smarter, not harder.

 

Heart Health

Your heart needs exercise, the right foods and spending less time sitting and more time standing lowers blood sugar, cholesterol, and weight, which means a lower risk for heart disease.
