Joyce Contract Interiors – Modern Adjustable Height Desks

Height Adjustable Desks

Modern-day Americans spend as much as 90% of the day sitting. Combined, too much sitting and too little movement can cause weight gain, reduced metabolic rate, backaches, and tension. Height-adjustable office desks have been growing in popularity for a number of years because they provide a practical and healthy solution to the problem of excess sitting. Alternating between sitting and standing, an employee can burn more calories, relieve back strain, and increase productivity.

Height-adjustable office desks range in size from 24″x48″ to 30″x72″. Casters are available on straight height-adjustable desk. Contact us to find the size(s) that will work best in your office.

What Are the Ergonomic Benefits of a Height-Adjustable Desk?

A sedentary workstyle is an unhealthy one. A study from the American Cancer Society has shown a direct correlation between the amount of time people spend sitting and mortality rates.

Scientists, physicians, and health researchers agree: height-adjustable desks are good for your body. There are many advantages to combining sitting and standing postures during the work day, including:

  • Increased energy, productivity, and stamina
  • Decreased back and neck pain
  • Elimination of carpal tunnel issues
  • Weight-gain prevention – standing burns 2 to 3 times as many calories as sitting
  • Reduction in heart disease and cancer risks
  • Improved blood circulation
