The medical community seems to be aligned around the concept that standing is generally a healthier and more productive position for people to work rather than sitting. Standing more frequently (well… sitting less!) has been scientifically shown to help people maintain and even lose weight since standing promotes simple movement that can burn upwards of 300 or more calories per standard work day. Standing and the movements caused by standing increases circulation and blood flow which can increase energy naturally without external stimulants. Improved circulation combined with proper weight maintenance also contribute to a decoración oficinas decreased risk of debilitating diseases. In general, standing promotes a better, healthier posture as opposed to sitting in a chair.

With all of the proven health benefits of standing, it is up to us to stand more! A simple way for office workers to incorporate more standing in their daily life is to use a standing desk. Combing an ergonomic stand up desk keyboard tray with an adjustable height platform for monitors, documents, and other items makes an efficient, comfortable, and healthy workstation. The ergonomic stand up desk keyboard tray should be adjustable to hold keyboards in a position where the arms are relaxed and the elbow angle is slightly more than ninety degrees. An ergonomic stand up desk keyboard tray should allow the user to type with the wrist drooping down naturally (cocked wrist positions are generally the unhealthiest and can lead to enhanced fatigue and other wrist ailments). When opting for an adjustable standing desk, it is also important to pay attention to where the monitor is held. Monitors should be held at eye-level. Lower monitor positions can cause hunching and an unhealthy posture that can defeat or erase some of the health benefits associated with standing up rather than sitting down.

While typing directly on a laptop is often not the best ergonomic position, sometimes mobile workers have little choice about their equipment as they opt for portability and efficiency over true ergonomic posture. A portable laptop stand is a health necessity for any mobile worker. The portable laptop stand shouldn’t weigh much more than a laptop and should be adjustable in height to hold laptop screens at eye-level and also rotate the angle to decrease screen glare and decrease eye fatigue. Often sit/stand desks are bulky fixed objects designed for a stationary office. For mobile workers, using a portable laptop stand that can adjust in height to hold laptops in a position where they can be used standing can be beneficial. A laptop stand that has a height range of twelve to twenty-four inches is often enough to convert any fixed height table into an adjustable height laptop standing desk, allowing the user to reap the health benefits of standing when working just about anywhere!
