Standing up for health – the standing desk movement30 March , 2015
Some say sitting is the new smoking. There’s no argument – too much sitting is bad. The truth is, in the modern office set-up, with our comfy chairs, email, internet, elevators and fancy phones, we find ourselves with very little reason to get up and move. And here-in lies the problem! Automation has become the enemy of agility.
Sitting has become our default position and subsequently diseases related to sedentary behaviour continue to rise.
The tide however is beginning to turn. Sit-stand desks and the understanding of the need to move more at work is steadily gaining interest and understanding.

See why opportunities for standing and incidental movement are becoming more valuable in today’s workplace.
