Sitting at our desks for almost 8+ hours a day, five days a week certainly takes its toll on our health and wellbeing. People who adopt this sedentary lifestyle are at a greater risk of suffering from back pain, high blood pressure and elevated cholesterol.
Sit Stand desks help to counteract these health issues by encouraging movement and promoting improved posture, maximising your healthy working environment.
Monitor risers allow users to adjust their device to a suitable height for comfortable viewing subsequently reducing neck, back and eye strain. Risers also help users optimise their workstation by freeing up extra workspace.
When thinking of our wellbeing in the office, our backs tend to take the centre stage meaning our feet can often be overlooked. Using foot rests can not only promote blood circulation, it also helps improve posture and reduces strain on the lower back.
Continual use of mouse and keyboard can be a significant source of stress to the wrist, forearm, elbow, and even the shoulder and lateral side of the neck. The use of wrist supports work by ensuring that your form is correct, decreasing strain and increasing comfort.
