The Desk Stander From Up Down Desk
At Principle Four Osteopathy and Corporate Work Health Australia we are big supporters of offering workers the option to vary their work posture between sitting and standing. This is even more important when ones job is mostly based around a computer and there is little opportunity for work tasks to be performed away from the desk. When it comes to risk factors for musculoskeletal disorders, exposure to static, awkward, long duration and repetitive postures or movements can all increase ones chances of developing musculoskeletal strains and sprains. Therefore we need to consider workplace solutions that may allow workers to change postures more often. My number one recommendation for sit-stand desks is always a fully adjustable (manual or electronic) desk. When this is not possible i.e. workplace office that doesnt have the space available to implement a full sit-stand desk, then an on desk sit-stand option should be considered. For those looking for a great on desk option, check out my mate Jordan’s new desk stander from up down desk. http://www.updowndesk.com.au/
