Top 4 Health Concerns That Ergonomic Office Furniture Addresses

by TrueNorth Desks

TrueNorth standing desks were designed to offer ergonomic support and quality design and functionality to today’s office worker. Too many people complain of chronic pain because of their poorly designed furniture. They say that sitting is the new smoking, and it makes no sense for office workers to continue with old habits that are proven to be harmful. Ergonomic office furniture provides users with the chance to increase healthy living habits and maintain office space productivity. Standing desks are a solution to a number of ailments found in traditional office environments. Here are the top 4 health concerns that ergonomic office furniture addresses:

Chronic Pain

When we sit poorly, hunched over our desks, we tend to create unhealthy postures that negatively affect our health. Chronic pain, especially in the lower back and neck, is an unfortunately reality for many office workers. Employers looking to improve the health and happiness of their employees are making the move to more ergonomically sound office furniture. An adjustable height desk allows your employees to move their working positions throughout the day and create healthy routines for themselves.

Fatigue

The afternoon slump is ever present in our corporate offices. Avoid this lethargic portion of the day by allowing employees to change positions. Our motorized standing desks are programmable, and allow users to shift to a predetermined height. Employees may schedule the afternoon for responding to emails or working on a specific task, and can easily move the desk to a standing position to encourage more productive actions.  

Obesity & Related Diseases

Again, sitting might be the new smoking. However, many individuals don’t treat poor posture habits with the same severity that they’d treat cigarette smoke! Don’t blindly accept that you have to sit all day. Advocate for yourself and your office mates, and looking for ways to include standing workstations in your workplace. Cardiovascular disease, obesity, and diabetes are all preventable or treatable with healthy habits. A TrueNorth standing desk is one of the many tools you can use to become healthier and happier.

Daily Stressors

Standing desks offer a sense of community in the office place. Instead of working in an isolated manner, standing desk users can easily collaborate on projects and daily tasks. We offer a number of standing desk models, and employees can choose the style that best fits their daily work load and office space. Invest in multiple desks to serve as a collaborative workspace with individual choice over heights. Adjustable height desk users are more motivated and productive in the workplace, reducing the amount of overall daily stressors.
