As the world of work has become more digital, I am finding that computer based workers are spending more and more time seated at their workstation than ever before. In fact, office based workers are considered one of the most sedentary populations, spending 73% of the work day and up to 66% of their waking hours seated. (Edwardson et al, 2002)

Increasingly, people are searching for ways to become more active, while still getting their work done. One of the ways this can be achieved is by using a height adjustable workstation to allow you to work in different positions including seated, perched and standing.  

Sit stand desks / adaptors can be a great way of incorporating more movement into your working day when you are based at a DSE workstation, in the office or at home.

With a wider range of options available in recent years, they have become more accessible and affordable but are they the answer to increasing movement and mobility?

In this episode, I outline the different sit stand workstation options available for DSE-based workers and tips to ensure you get the best from your investment.
