Is your desk killing you? If you are like most adults and sit all day at work—then it could be. It may be an exaggeration to say that sitting is the new smoking, but studies have shown that it causes a host of problems if you sit all day long. Even if you head to the gym after work, staying seated at a desk for eight hours is still very unhealthy, according to the American Heart Association.
The American Heart Association found that regular physical exercise will not negate the effects of sitting all day. People who sit all day experience muscle degeneration, back problems, poor circulation and an increased risk of heart disease, diabetes and other chronic illnesses. So, what can you do? One way to integrate more movement into your daily routine is with a height-adjustable desk like the Alive Desk by Ergonofis.
Spending more time standing will engage your muscles. This increases blood flow, promotes better posture and burns more calories compared to sitting. The Alive Desk allows you to switch between sitting and standing quickly. It also ensures that you are in the correct ergonomic position when sitting.
The desk is handsome and would look great in any office. It is made from an American walnut slab and features a rustic, modern look. The rich details in the Walnut give the desk an authentic look. It features a 2” thick solid wood top and a heavy steel frame, making the desk very sturdy and stable.
The Alive Desk is available in either a smaller 24” X 48”size or the larger 30” X 60” size. You can also contact Ergonofis for custom sizes.
