The main pros
You’ll burn more calories. The difference between standing versus sitting in a workday is around 300 calories, more than a Butter Croissant of Starbucks. You can eat a croissant every day and you’ll still burn more calories that your colleague eating carrots working sitting. Sweet.
You’ll feel less pain. Tons of studies show that back and neck pain decrease after some time using standing workstations
You’ll have more energy: One of our users declares: When I worked in an office where I sat in a chair, sitting down used to leave me vulnerable to afternoon drowsiness. After I began using a Sit Stand workstation, the drowsiness has not returned, not even once." In general standing requires a more dynamic and energetic pose.
You’ll be more productivity: Statistics shows that people type faster and feel more creative brainstorming while standing. In my personal case I need to stand during phone calls. Also, sick leaves will decrease because people would feel better working
The main cons
Price: A basic mobile sit-stand station cart usually runs around 800 dollars.
With Sit Stand Office: You’ll get your own desk raised for less money. If you are looking for some standing workstation with similar dimensions, quality and style of your own desk probably it’s not just 800 what you’ll need to pay. Prepare at least 2000.
Assembly: It is not usually difficult but takes a couple of hours. With Sit Stand this time will be reduced. With our instructional manuals and videos it will be even fun to assemble the material.
Fatigue: Even the healthiest habit in the world has to be dosed. Try to change progressively sitting to standing, and eventually you’ll divide your workday half sitting half standing. We are aware of this situation, that’s why we offer special chairs to complement your standing configurations.
Hope it helps,
Just a last question why replace it if you can raise it?
Have a nice day,
Your Sit Stand Office team
