These are just a few heath benefits of standing:

  • Reduces the risk of weight gain and obesity
  • Lowers risk of heart disease
  • Lowers risk of diabetes
  • Lowers long-term mortality risk
  • Reduces the risk of cancer
  • Reduces back pain
  • Increases energy level
  • Improves the mood
  • Boosts productivity
  • Strengthens and tones muscles

More and more companies are promoting standing up and moving around regularly as part of your working day, with more standing desks turning up in the office.

As the office is evolving everything is becoming mobile; activity based working and hot desking are becoming commonplace in the office.

Designers are increasingly changing the way they think about furniture in order to cater for this change in working.
