4 Practical Benefits of Sit to Stand Desks

by TrueNorth Desks

Gone are the days of office cubicles and workers hunched over their desks. Today’s marketplace demands that employers pay close attention to what is best for their employees. Standing can burn up to 50 more calories than sitting, and we know that office workers across the country are sick of being tied to their desks. There is no reason for the workday to be hard on our health. There is no reason that it can’t benefit our overall well-being. When using a TrueNorth sit to stand desk, you are creating a work environment that allows you to be healthy, productive and happy. Here are 5 Practical Benefits of Sit to Stand Desks:

Ergonomic Support

It has become increasingly important for employees to use ergonomic office furniture during the workweek. American workers are experiencing increased chronic pain due to poor eating habits, lack of exercise and minimal ergonomic support from office furniture. At TrueNorth, we have created a line of standing desks that is designed to provide users with optimal ergonomic support. Standing desks allow users to stand throughout the workday, which lowers risk of obesity and cardiovascular disease, and burns up to 50 more calories per hour.

Maintained Productivity

Managers are eager to find ways to motivate employees and ensure high levels of productivity. The standing desk lifestyle encourages office workers to maximize their time and resources. Since standing desks benefit users’ overall health, it’s more likely that you will stay in shape while using a sit to stand desk. As goals are met, more can be made. Standing desks have a purpose outside holding your laptop or phone; they contribute to your overall wellness. Standing desks offer users a higher level of focus and drive, increasing productivity and maintaining a strong work ethic throughout the office.   

Expert Craftsmanship

TrueNorth standing desks are born and built in the USA and exceed ANSI/BIFMA standards. Our sit to stand desks are designed to hold up to 300 pounds and are sold with a 5 year limited warranty. Our desks are built to last and to add value and health to your work environment. Since our sit to stand desks rely on the whisper-like, programmable function that adjusts each desk’s height, we put a high level of care and craftsmanship into the design features. You’ll find that you are easily able to maneuver the height of your desk throughout the workweek.

Habitual Training

Using a TrueNorth adjustable height desk, you can set a routine schedule for yourself. You can easily transition between sitting and standing, multiple times each day. This consistency encourages you to form healthy habits throughout the work day. Devote certain tasks, like brainstorming and invoicing, to the seated position. When it’s time to respond to emails, raise the height of your desk to a standing position, and see how much faster you can move through these correspondences.
