Height Adjustable Desks and Office Worker Well-Being

After a hard day working in the office do you sometimes suffer from aches and pains? Do you sometimes worry about the impact of spending long hours sitting in the same fixed posture and the negative implication of doing so to your long term health?

If you do it is perfectly understandable. The human body is not designed to stay motionless in a fixed position for an extended period of time. Research comissioned by Public Health England backs a drive to encourage office workers to be on their feet for four hours per day, to stave off the onset of serious health issues including obesity, cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes.

This is where Height Adjustable Desks (sometimes referred to as sit-stand desks) can make a big difference for you to work more productively, relieve your discomfort and also aid your long-term health.

Libra Office Interiors is please to present a new range of Height Adjustable Desks from Imperial Office Furniture. These Height Adjustable Desks can be re-positioned either electronically, by crank handle or ratchet.

All Height Adjustable Desks are made by Imperial Office Furniture in their Bolton factory and are guaranteed for 5 years.

If you are looking for a true Sit-Stand Desk then we recommened that the ideal choice for you is the powered option, as this will reach a maximum height of 1260mm, suitable for the tallest of office workers.

Alternatively, our Crank Adjusted Height Adjustable Desks reach 1005mm height, with the ratchet version reaching 795mm high.

Please ask our sales team who will be glad to offer advice on the best Height Adjustable Desks for your office environment.

To find out more about the health benefits of Sit-Stand desks you may wish to read the research carried out by Loughborough University on the subject, and there are also plenty of papers on sedentary behaviour and the associated health risks available at Get Britain Standing.
