Sit Stand Desks- Part 2 by Jessica Poole

Posted by ANGELA HARRISON in Ergonomics, Total Back Care on Wednesday 11 November 2015

Hello guys! Please make sure you read my first blog post before you carry on to this one.

So what results were found?

It was found that there were mixed views on increased performance, comfort and implementation. Several Loughborough University participants struggled to adapt to their sit stand desk, whereas Total Back Care Centre employees and their clients adapted well. Novice users gave positive views, with most stating that they would use one if the occasion rose. Overall, sit stand desks were considered beneficial for those who choose to change their way of working.

Remember practice what you preach and make sure that you are actively sitting and standing throughout your working day! Do not stay static at your desk, and take short regular breaks to encourage movement.
