Finding the Balance: Is it Better to Sit or Stand at Work?

In today's professional landscape, where most of us spend extended hours in front of a screen, the question arises: Is it better to sit or stand at work? The answer is in finding the right balance to promote physical well-being in the office..

Benefits of Standing


Numerous studies support the advantages of working while standing. Being upright during work can enhance posture, alleviate pressure on the back and neck, and boost energy and productivity. Additionally, it promotes blood circulation and prevents issues associated with a sedentary lifestyle.

Benefits of Sitting

On the other hand, working while seated has its own merits. A comfortable and ergonomic chair can contribute to concentration, reduce fatigue, and provide stability when performing tasks that require precision, such as writing or manipulating small objects.

Find the Balance with Adjustable Height Desks


The ideal solution for those seeking the best of both worlds is adjustable desks that can be raised or lowered, such as Gebesa's ASCEND desks. These desks allow for easy transitions between sitting and standing, catering to individual needs and preferences.

Benefits of Adjustable Desks

  • Customized Ergonomics: Renowned for their ergonomic design, these desks adjust to the perfect height for each user, promoting a healthy posture.
  • Physical Well-being: By allowing frequent shifts between standing and sitting, these desks contribute to physical well-being, reducing muscle tension and improving circulation.
  • Enhanced Productivity: Numerous studies indicate that alternating between standing and sitting can enhance concentration and productivity throughout the day.

It's also important to incorporate activity during the workday; taking a walk for at least 10 minutes can make a difference in relieving muscle tension.
