Research shows that moving from one posture to another is beneficial to our health: people who move more, feel better. And people who feel better work better.
The Augment Ratio height-adjustable desk enables a smooth transition between sitting and standing. Users can vary their posture as they need to find the right balance between sitting and standing throughout the day.
Sit. Stand. Move. Repeat:
The average worker spends between three and eight hours a day at their desk, with many of us spending more time sitting down than sleeping. Research shows links between sedentary lifestyles and an increased risk of diabetes, obesity, heart disease and some kinds of cancer. Standing for short periods increases blood flow, burns extra calories and increases our metabolism.
Extended standing can lead to increased risk of back pain and fatigue, so it’s best to switch positions during the day. Height-adjustable furniture can reduce sitting times by up to 60 per cent, and by alternating between sitting and standing our bodies are healthier.
