Time and time again studies have proven that prolonged sitting is detrimental to your health. In fact, one study states that sitting for more than 3 hours can cut your life expectancy by 2 years. In addition to this staggering number, sitting for a long period of time can also increase back and neck pain.
To facilitate standing at work, you might consider investing in a stand up desk converter. A stand-up desk converter allows users to stand while working by turning your current desk surface into one that allows work to be done while standing.
Here are some reasons you should consider a stand up desk converter:
The stand up desk converter has a huge number of varieties which means, no matter what budget you have, there’s an option for you.
Purchasing a converter from the High Rise Collection allows for a lot of flexibility. Since the converter is either clamped or attached to your existing desk it’s a worry free extension of your desk. Because of this you’re also less likely to experience any damage when setting up your work station. In addition, the stand-up desk converter can also be moved to another desk without disassembling.
Another positive thing about the stand-up desk converter is the fact that it is designed to fit in a enclosed work space. For example certain standing desk options will only work if the end of the desk is adjacent to a wall of cubical. In the case of the converter, it can be placed anywhere on your desk whether it is by a wall or not.
A standing desk option doesn’t have to be disruptive to your work space. One of the features of the stand-up desk converter is the tapered back. This allows the converter to fit perfectly even in corners. This is a great feature because it reduces their footprint in your overall desk space.
Last, the converters in the High Rise Collection is very simple to set-up. In fact, it should only take you 15 minutes or less to assemble.
Earlier I started some of the negative aspects of sitting. It only makes sense now to mention the positive impacts standing at work can have. There are a number of benefits of standing at work including reducing back and neck pain, burns more calories, and may also increase overall mood.
A desk converter also has positive impacts on productivity. A study found that ergonomic furniture in the work place resulted in 18% more work done. In addition, a work space that incorporates a standing desk or a desk converter also promotes collaboration, since there is a smaller barrier to engage with others (versus a cubical desk for example).
If you aren’t ready to take the plunge to invest in a standing desk yet, the stand-up desk converter is the perfect option for you.It’s easily customization to your budget and office and work style with the large selection of choices that are available.
