Standing desks are increasingly becoming a popular fixture in offices
around the world for their multiple benefits.
Also known as height adjustable desks or sit stand desks, standing desks
should not be confused with standing-only desks that cannot be adjusted at all
and can be quite inconvenient, especially since one needs to sit down as well.
A real standing desk is one that allows the user to work in both sitting
and standing positions using the adjustability of the desk to change positions.
With standing desks, one can avoid falling into the sedentary working style
trap of sitting or standing all the time.
Height adjustable desks can be of various types. For instance, modern
height adjustable desks use electric functions to allow the height to be
adjusted within seconds at the push of a button. Older adjustable desks need to
be manually raised or lowered, which can be time-consuming and inefficient, and
typically results in the user avoiding adjustment, negating the very purpose of
having a standing desk.
