Adults in Australia spend most of the time at work, so the workplace is an important place to start improving workers’ health. For office workers, at least three-quarters of their work time is spent sitting, which means that they will be greatly affected by the negative physical consequences of sitting. There are many benefits to standing, rather than sitting, while at work, such as alleviating back pain, reducing chronic disease and increasing productivity.* In this white paper, presented by Varidesk and Specifier, we look at the benefits of standing at work, and how these benefits can be achieved with Varidesk sit-stand desks.
