Standing Desk Benefits and Why We Stand

We stand to be in motion.

The typical 45 minutes in the gym can’t compete with the drain of an 8-hour workday — sit too long, you start to fidget; stand still too long, and you shift your weight. Your needs vary throughout the day, yet the standard desks we are all used to are stationary fixtures. A MultiTable sit and stand desk revolutionizes every work day by moving with you as your needs change and your movement varies.

We stand to make a difference.

Standing while working increases productivity by up to 10% and increases focus. Sedentary workers are encouraged to get up and move every hour. In an 8-hour work day, those 5-minute breaks add up to a minimum of 40 minutes. By simply adjusting from sitting to standing, restorative breaks become unnecessary. Energy and productivity are both boosted, making it easier to work smarter — an advantage for employees and employers alike.

We stand so you can benefit!

Adjustable standing desks are not just a trend — using an adjustable standing desk will benefit anyone who uses a desk: students, teachers, physicians, office managers, secretarial pools, administrative assistants, telecommuters, writers, musicians and the list goes on. Anyone interested in increased health, energy, and productivity needs a height adjustable standing desk.
