Health Benefits of Height-Adjustable Desks | Office Furniture Warehouse

What Are the Benefits of Height-Adjustable Desks?

In recent years, height-adjustable desks have become commonplace in New Zealand’s offices and home offices. Stocking a range of quality adjustable desks, Office Furniture Warehouse’s products allow users to easily set the height of their work surface, allowing them to alternate between sitting and standing throughout the day. This contributes to improved productivity, comfort and more. As further research comes to light about the range of health benefits height-adjustable desks offer, we take you through some of them.

Reduced Risk of Back Pain

Sitting for long periods of time can commonly lead to back pain and other musculoskeletal disorders. By using a height-adjustable desk, users can reduce the amount of time they spend in a seated position, which helps reduce stress on the back. Additionally, standing can help improve posture and strengthen core muscles, both of which contribute to the prevention of back pain.

Improved Mood and Energy Levels

Height-adjustable desks can have a positive impact on mood and energy levels. Standing can help increase energy levels and reduce feelings of fatigue brought on by being stuck in a stationary seated position. Additionally, standing can promote the release of endorphins, which can improve mood and reduce stress levels. 

Reduced Risk of Heart Disease

Sitting for long periods can lead to a decrease in blood flow and an increase in blood pressure, both of which are risk factors for heart disease. By using a height-adjustable desk, users can alternate between sitting and standing, which can improve blood flow and reduce the risk of heart disease.

Improved Cognitive Function

Standing at work rather than sitting can help improve cognitive function, including memory, attention, and processing speed. By using a height-adjustable desk, users can take advantage of these benefits and potentially improve their productivity and performance at work.

Reduced Risk of Obesity

Using a height-adjustable desk reduces the amount of time a person spends sitting each day, which can lead to a reduction in body weight and a lower risk of obesity. By allowing users to stand for part of their workday, height-adjustable desks can increase energy expenditure and promote the use of muscles that are not typically activated while sitting.
