Sit Stand desks

They are a great alternative to sitting all day, which has been proven to create various health complications.

Amongst others, complaints such as headaches, neck and lower back pain. Reduced fitness with weight gain, poor posture eg slumping & round shoulders, mental fatigue, poor circulation.

Amongst others, body comfort, improved posture, better concentration therefore work output and weight loss.

For most people, yes. An exception maybe a person with a knee problem, whom will need to continue sitting.

Standing all day, could be tiring. It is recommended that a blend of standing and sitting is optimal for your wellbeing. Rather than sit all day and stand when you need it, stand all day, and sit when you need it. Ultimately, the worker needs to self-regulate this ratio and it will change from one day to the next anyway.

Sit-stand desks options include electric or manual. The choice is dependent on your needs or preferences. There is no effort with electric and small effort with manual.

The desks are designed to hold the weight of all your equipment and stationary items.

Both the full electric desks and desk converters are available in a range a colors and sizes, depending on the specific model purchased.

All our desks come with a manufacturer’s warranty.
