Sit-Stand Furniture: Todays Necessity in
There has been considerable discourse among industry professionals with
regards to office furniture design. Much of the discussions have revolved
around issues such as metabolic syndrome and office inactivity. A lot of
negative effects have been recorded in the health, efficiency, and effectiveness
of people who work in profiles that subject them to extended sitting or
standing positions. This is why Sit-Stand Furniture options have come to the
fore with the advent of ergonomic design in various workplaces such as offices,
call centers, command and control centers, emergency response centers, and
security/control rooms, among others.
What Is Sit-Stand Furniture?
Sit-stand solutions, in all their configurations, allow for the user to alternate
between sitting and standing during work hours. This mitigates the stress
caused by maintaining the same posture for extended hours day after day. You
will find stools, chairs, desks, etc. under this category and the furniture is
usually made designed according to your needs, office space, and other
Sit-stand options found their popularity in assembly and production lines and
science has brought them into offices of all configurations. The furniture is
adjustable in terms of height and any extra features as per requirement.
Some of the benefits of using sit-stand furniture include cutting down on
health problems among employees, reduction in absenteeism, less stress,
more productivity, better ROI, ability to work for extended hours, less medical
expenses, and more. Even the American Cancer Society found that sitting for
more than 6 hours raised mortality by up to 37% and The American College of
Sports Medicine found that those who sit for extended periods have a 50
percent chance of meeting with early death, regardless of their fitness levels.
