Why SitStand Desks?

Why SitStand Desks?

Stand for a while, then sit for a while. But don’t stand too long. That is not good either. Mix it up.

If you stand or move around during the day, you will feel more energy and fitter.  if you sit at a desk you have a higher chance of having health problems.

When you are physically active, on the other hand, your overall energy levels and endurance improve, and your bones maintain strength. 

Sitting for long periods can lead to weakening and wasting away of the large leg and gluteal muscles. These large muscles are important for walking and for stabilising you. If these muscles are weak you are more likely to injure yourself from falls, and from strains when you do exercise.

Moving your muscles helps your body digest the fats and sugars you eat and reduces the risk of becoming overweight.

Just like your legs and gluteals, your hips and back will not support you as well if you sit for long periods. Sitting causes your hip flexor muscles to shorten, which can lead to problems with your hip joints.

Sitting for long periods can also cause problems with your back, especially if you consistently sit with poor posture or don’t use an ergonomically designed chair or workstation.

Sitting for long periods has been linked to heart disease.

If you spend your time hunched over a computer keyboard, this can lead to pain and stiffness in your neck and shoulders.
