Standing is the way forward. According to Queen University Belfast researchers, sitting all day for long durations can be just as debilitating to your health as smoking! Now, we all have an idea about how often we may sit at work or home, though did you know people on average sit over seven hours and even up to 80% of their day “sitting”?
There is tons of research being done on this topic of standing and the adverse effects to the body sitting. With height adjustable desks such as our i-café , i-vari, i-VM and i-V2 you’re not restricted. Health aware organisations are becoming more aware of this potential risk of prolonged sitting. Employers, employees and educational organisations are seeking options to steer away from fixed sitting environment. NHS, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, BBC news sports, American Medical Association understand the health effects of sitting too long.
A brow lifter info: Link between debilitating health and time spent sitting was brought to attention in the 1950’s as researchers learned that London bus drivers were 2 times more likely to have heart attacks as their bus conductor colleagues. (should of been a wake up call then)
