Want to bring movement to the office and help your employees stay healthy? Below are a few tips on how electric sit-stand desks and motivational tools help create healthy office habits. Standing for eight minutes every 30 minutes makes a huge difference.
Several studies show that breaking up physical inactive periods will help minimise their negative health effects. Electric sit-stand desks bring movement in the office, and this is what it is all about. As it is neither healthy to stand nor to sit all day, the ideal situation is to switch between the two and to move around as much as possible throughout the day.
In fact, experts claim that the ideal sit-stand balance for every 30 minutes is to:
- Stand for eight minutes
- Move/stretch for two minutes
- Sit in neutral positions for 20 minutes
Choose a desk system designed to help office workers stay active
Changing habits is not an easy task. But there are ways to help develop healthy habits. To support office workers, Creative Systems off a number of Height Adjustable Desk options that can be customised to suit any office space. Each Creative Systems desk is specifically designed with user-friendly office desk systems offering motivating desk accessories.
Desk Panels with integrated sit-stand reminders
The most visible part of a sit-stand desk is the desk panel. If a desk is easy to control, changing postures during the day becomes an easier task. The desk panels that Creative Systems use on all of our height adjustable desk systems include memory position functions, allowing users to store their favourite desk heights, and making it easier to switch between their preferred sit and stand position.
Advanced models include sit-stand reminder functions via an integrated LED diode / light strip – its colour indicating to the user when it is time to stand up.
Personal sit-stand statistics and tracking via an app
All of our desk systems also allow users to receive sit-stand reminder notifications and to follow his/her personal statistics via the free Desk Control™ App.
