THE EVOLUTION OF SEDENTARY

For the vast majority of our evolutionary history, we’ve had to exert ourselves — often quite strenuously — to get food, find shelter and simply survive. We had no concept of this as “exercise” or “working out.” It was just life.

Today our lives are very sedentary.

All of this sitting is taking a toll on our health. Studies show that spending 1-2 hours at the gym per day doesn’t offset the damage done by sitting. At some point we need to make a change. And change starts with movement.

There’s a long list of standing desk benefits that are proven beyond a doubt. Researchers recommend that people get out of their chair and move as often as possible to preserve their health. Standing for just 5-10% of your day can keep you healthier, happier and more productive. But in our technology driven world, many of us are required to remain at a desk for long hours. So if you need to move, why shouldn’t your desk move with you?

The unDesk provides you with the freedom to sit or stand throughout your day.

LONGER LIFE EXPECTANCY

Did you know that you could live longer simply by standing up more and sitting down less?

Studies show that active people have a longer life expectancy than their sedentary counterparts. For this reason, a standing desk is a much better choice than a standard, sit-down desk.

Sitting at a desk for long periods of time can actually cause you physical harm. As you sit, fat accumulates in your heart, liver, brain and other organs. Your muscles lose their tone and definition, and your body actually becomes more fatigued than if you were standing.

Among other negative side effects, the potential for weight gain is tremendous for workers who sit all day.

BURN MORE CALORIES, JUST BY STANDING

How many calories can you burn by switching from a sit-down desk to a stand-up desk? More than you think.

An adjustable height desk can help you avoid the health pitfalls of sitting all day, and you can burn calories at the same time. 

According to one calorie-burn calculator, a 180-pound person burns around 970 calories during the course of a seven-hour workday. Using a height adjustable desk, the same person burns around 1362 calories. This is an increase of 392 calories. If you are trying to lose or manage your weight, the calories can really add up.

IMPROVED ERGONOMICS

Sitting is not a natural position. Extended periods of sitting behind a desk can cause numerous problems including backaches, neck and shoulder pain, leg cramps, sciatica, headaches and vision issues. Standing all day can be painful too, especially if you are not used to it. An adjustable height desk is the best solution. 

An ergonomic desk makes you feel better, and when you feel better, you work better. A standing desk helps you be more productive at work. It also encourages interaction with your coworkers. It gives you easy access to your team members, supply rooms, office equipment and more.  

Height adjustable desks are suitable for home office workers, computer desk users, students, cubicle dwellers and office executives. So check out a standing desk and take control of your health and productivity!

BETTER OVERALL HEALTH

The twenty-first century lifestyle is more sedentary than ever before. Obesity and diabetes are also more prevalent. A healthy diet and regular exercise are still the best ways to lose weight and prevent diabetes, but a standing desk can help, especially if you are not used to exercise.

A stand-up desk encourages you to stay active throughout the day, and movement is a good way to stay fit and healthy during desk work.  

Of course, standing all day can be tiring; you may not be able to handle more than fifteen minutes at a time. Fortunately, our desks are adjustable desks that enable you to move from standing to sitting and back again; allowing you to vary your position and change it with ease.

INCREASE PRODUCTIVITY. GET MORE DONE.

Experts recommend getting up and moving around throughout the day, but sometimes during intensive work periods, it can seem impossible to step away from your desk, even for a sip of water. But with the NextDesk you can take physical breaks without even looking away from your task. In the modern world, your desk is more than just a workspace. It’s almost like your second home. So why not go ahead and make yourself comfortable—and more productive? An adjustable height desk allows you to do just that. You can sit or stand to improve circulation and decrease fatigue. After a few days, you’ll notice sharper focus and if you’re like most, you’re getting many more standing desk benefits.
