Why do you need an adjustable stand up desk?

Prevent a herniated disk from ever happening!

Your spine has a natural ‘S’ curve when you are standing or walking around. When you sit down it goes into a ‘C’ shape. Your upper body’s weight is pressing down on the lower part of your spine for hours on end when you are sitting. Your ligaments and tendons toughen as collagen hardens around them. You’re now prone to a herniated disc. When you stand up at your adjustable desk for a while, blood flows to the soft parts of your spine, keeping it nourished instead of compressed.

Reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and cancer

You heard right, sedentary lifestyles cause all these diseases, according to a 2011 study. It’s not enough if you go to the gym in the evening after a long day of sitting at your office desk. You need to stand up, get the blood pumping around your body frequently throughout the day heart disease, cancer, and diabetes away. An adjustable stand up desk is an ideal way to burn up to 50 calories more per hour while at work and reduce your chance of developing illnesses.
