Why Changing To A Height Adjustable Desk Might Be Better Than A New Office Chair
Sit stand desking has long been commonplace in Europe, especially the Nordic countries and yet NZ has never really embraced the concept. Is this likely to change? The great advantage of sit stand desking is it allows users to quickly and easily alter their working posture. So if you are fed up with sitting because your back is aching, just alter the height of your desk and stand working for a while. Alternatively you can work somewhere in between in a semi-perched position using something like HÅG’s Capisco chair. It helps people work more healthily by improving mobility and circulation as well as curing bad habits like slouching.
So how do sit stand desks work?
At their most basic level there is set up height adjustable desking. As the name suggests it’s possible to vary the height of the desk when you assemble it or set it up. However, once built it’s likely you wouldn’t alter it again as it would be too much hassle. You would need to clear the desk and adjust the leg height so in reality this type of desk isn’t truly fully height adjustable.
The most common form of sit stand desk is one where the height is manually adjusted either by a crank handle or a gas spring lift mechanism. This does allow users to easily alter the work height frequently without major upheaval. Although these desks are easier to adjust down than up.
The most sophisticated version is the electrically height adjustable sit stand desk. At the press of a button users can quickly and easily raise and lower the desk work surface. Clearly this is the best option, unfortunately the big downside is price and even an entry level model is likely to be around $1200. Some electric height adjustable tables may be a little cheaper although they would only really be suitable for laptop use. For this reason progress towards mainstream use of sit stand desking in NZ is likely to be slow, although there is definitely more and more interest from designers, architects and other specialist users.
Ultimately price is likely to continue to be the main stumbling block to the wider acceptance of adjustable desks. The nature of the product means the inclusion of expensive components is still necessary, maybe the breakthrough will come from the far east.

Why Electric Height Adjustable Work Surfaces (EHAWS) Make For Good Business
Cornell University''s Human Factors and Ergonomic Research Laboratory carefully studied the role that EHAWS play in musculoskeletal discomfort and productivity in the work environment. According to this and other cited studies:
Results show significant decreases in the severity of musculoskeletal discomfort for most upper body regions.
Alternating between sitting and standing at work benefits health and productivity.
There is significantly less spinal shrinkage for office workers who stand for portions of the day.
Body part discomfort decreases an average of 62 percent and the occurrence of injuries and illnesses decrease by more than half.
Workers take shorter and fewer breaks when using sit to stand desks.
Adjustable desks allow companies to easily fit the workspace to people of different heights and body types as well and those with disabilities and back problems.
EHAWS are beneficial for hoteling, which is the practice of providing office space to employees on an as-needed basis. This reduces the amount of physical space that an enterprise needs, lowering overhead cost while ensuring that every worker can access office resources when necessary.
Employers investing in electric sit-stand desks are realizing great advantages. Employees that are happier, healthier and more productive translates into cost savings and an improved working environment.
A team of scientists at the University of Missouri found that the enzymes that are responsible for burning fat just shut down when we sit. Standing up while working helps to reduce weight. A lternating between sitting and standing posture at work benefits health and productivity.
