Ergonomics of NON Height Adjustable Desk
The Human Body is Designed to Move – Just think of people you know. Those on their feet all day develop problems with back and joints. Those sitting all day put pressure on their spinal and other systems. However, those on the move tend to be the healthiest! That is why a height adjustable desk is the best ergonomic option.
Just Sitting – Too much sitting results in a general health decline. For example, heart disease is three times more common for professions and conditions that require sitting all day.
Just Standing – Pressure to the lower back is much less than when sitting without proper lumbar support. Standing requires about 20% more energy, but too much continuous standing can put strain on lower body joints.
BOTH Sitting AND Standing – is the best approach to health. Regular movement adjusts the loads being placed on any one particular part of the body. It is similar to exercising in intervals. Doing so reduces atrophy, but also increases rest to certain posture hot spots. Just spend two additional hours (each day) on your feet, and you’ll burn nearly 400 additional calories.
