AnthroDesk Enters The Office Design Market With The Latest Standing Desk Extender
Etobicoke, CANADA - AnthroDesk today announced the US release of the latest ErgoConvert Electric Sit-Stand Desk Converter (it has been available in Canada since spring). It is the best addition to an emerging sit to stand workstation line that started with full-sized standing desks in 2014. It is one of the best solutions to fix the alarming health hazards of prolonged sitting caused by a sedentary lifestyle.
AnthroDesk is a Canada-based company that sells ergonomic products that aim to provide help and solutions to workers, students, administrators, and employers who are experiencing the adverse effects of sitting for a long period of time.
What makes ErgoConvert Electric Sit-Stand Desk Converter different from the other sit stand extender/converter products available is the electric height adjustable control. Instead of fixed heights of a spring-operated device, the electric control smoothly and effortlessly adjusts based on the exact ergonomic height of the user. It comes with a VESA pattern bracket to hold your monitor (up to 27"). It can convert the existing desk to a standing desk. The transition from sitting to standing is easily done with the push of a button. The powerful motor can lift up to 50 lbs and they are guaranteed service for 5 years.
AnthroDesk offers the best warranty in the industry and with a money-back guarantee (you can send it back for a full money back in 30 days if you are not happy with it).
The ErgoConvert Electric Sit-Stand Desk Converter is the key to build frequent movement variety into the normal workday. AnthroDesk sells its own brand and stands 100% behind its product.
Sitting for more than 1 hour has been shown to induce biochemical changes in fat and glucose metabolism that leads to weight gain, obesity, and increased risk of heart disease and colon cancer. Scientists advocate standing at work because it requires 20% more energy than sitting and uses more muscle activity as they burn more calories.
“We found that the computer workers who had access to the adjustable work surface also reported significantly less musculoskeletal upper-body discomfort, lower afternoon discomfort scores, and significantly more productivity,” said Alan Hedge, director of Human Factors and Ergonomics Research and teaching programs at Cornell University.
SIT TO STAND WORKSTATIONS
The study consists of 33 computer workers at two companies, a high-technology facility, and an insurance company. All participants were intensive computer users. They were asked about their work patterns and musculoskeletal discomfort at work. Half of the participants were given an electric height adjustable work surface (EHAW) for a month and EHAW groups were monitored.
The bottom line is you should be standing more. Sitting some time during the day is okay. But you should try to stand throughout the day. Using AnthroDesk ErgoConvert Electric Sit-Stand Desk Converter you can stand periodically for favourable work posture. Try to stand every hour. If you can't stand for long periods, then just try standing a short period every 20 minutes. Try to take a 'posture break' every hour and change positions, or go for a walk.
Build in a pattern of creating greater movement variety in the workplace starting with the AnthroDesk ErgoConvert Electric Sit-Stand Desk Converter. During break time walk to the water fountain or walk to the printer, stand for a meeting, take the stairs, walk around the office area, or park a bit farther away from the building each day.
“An EHAW can be helpful to anyone with a back injury who needs to stand for back relief for part of the day and also for anyone who wishes to work in sitting or standing arrangements.” Hedge said.
