  • Sitting down, or standing up . . . the new desktop dilemma - Shropshire Business Today
    find difficulty straightening up when I first stood Having a stand up desk has enabled me to gradually increase the amount of time I stand during the day and adopt a better body position while working which benefits my back I now have far less back pain and am building up better supporting muscles which is brilliant for my long term health It really is easy to swap from standing up to sitting down if I feel tired but I am able to stand for much longer periods than I ever thought possible She added I also feel more energised which is carrying through into my home life as well I definitely feel I have more energy at the end of the day And I am nowhere near as stiff as I was Lorane Scott a Supply Planner for Dechra Pharmaceuticals Plc also of Shrewsbury has spent a week a month for the last six years at their central distribution hub in Denmark where 100 of office workers compared to one percent of British workers have stand up desks They take office ergonomics very seriously over there Stand up desks are wonderful because they are easy to use you only have to press a button to adjust the desk to the height required It feels so natural to use and stand for four to five hours a day which is good for the posture I am far less listless at the end of the working day I have been saying for years that there is certainly a health benefit to getting up and moving around and it was a good call by this business to start investing in stand up desks Shifnal husband and wife Chris and Sue Blake who have quite different jobs and pastimes that require using a computer on a regular basis visited the Chrisbeon showroom at Stafford Park where they were given a demonstration by partners Richard and Craig Hughes The couple who have been Chrisbeon customers for 20 years purchasing stationery and sometimes office furniture said they had previously heard of the Varidesk but hadn t seen one We took a liking to them and purchased two said Chris a driving instructor As a result the Varidesk has totally revolutionised our work from home We spend many hours at our desks each week and where previously we would frequently stand up to get the circulation back and stop feeling physically irritable we can now work happily for long periods of time confident in the benefits of standing at our desks Said Sue a piano teacher who also edits a local parish magazine on computer at home When faced with a big project to complete we no longer dread the thought of all those hours sitting down but now face it with renewed vigour The Varidesk has the added advantage of being at the right height if for example you just want to check emails If we prefer to sit we can lower the desks and
