How to get the most out of your sit-stand desk.

 

  1. To decide the height of the standing desk, relax your shoulder and create a 90-degree angle with your elbow. Bring the desk height to just below the forearm.
  2. Your thighs should run parallel to the ground, with your feet firmly placed on the floor, shoulder width apart.
  3. Wrists must be in line with your forearms.
  4. Keep your head upright with ears in line with your shoulders. Eyes should be in line with the top one third of the screen.
  5. You will also find that your posture will be at its best, when your rib cage is above your hips, as this means that you’re not leaning forwards or backwards.
  6. Finally, your knees should be straight, however not locked, if knees are locked you are likely to be bending too far back, this causes strain on your lower back and pelvis.

 

It is recommended that when working at your desk, you should spend at least a minimum of two hours on your feet, this with the main aim of reaching an ideal four hours. Seated work needs to be regularly broken up with standing work. As well as avoiding too much seated work, remaining in a static standing posture should also be avoided. This being why its advised to regularly charge or shift weight between your legs, in order to reduce leg fatigue. As well as shifting weight, you should also frequently adjust the posture of your body throughout the working day. Occupational standing has not been shown to cause any damage towards your lower back or your neck, if anything standing helps to provide relief towards the muscles.
