When you work a standard 9-5 office job, you expect to be sitting most of the time. For a while, this may seem like a relaxing way to work; however, many employees learn quickly that sitting all the time is not everything that it is made out to be, and for good reason. The average American actually spends roughly 6.5 hours every day just sitting in one place.
Not only does this get uncomfortable fast, but it also can cause long-term health issues. All this sitting contributes to our notoriously sedentary lifestyles. When you don’t take the time to get up and move around every once in a while, you may be increasing your risk for conditions like heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and more. Not to mention those unwelcome backaches and cramped muscles that inevitably result from sitting in one place for so long.
Fortunately, OIG has the solution for you – a standing desk. Just as its name suggests, this desk allows you to stand as you work. Best of all, you can even find electric height adjustable desks that can be customized to your height. That way, you do not have to strain to reach your computer. Investing in standing desks for your employees will keep them comfortable, which in turn will raise productivity.
You may worry that adjustable desks will set you back financially, but that does not have to be the case. We offer multiple standing desks to fit your needs.
Here is what else you should know:
What to Look for in a Standing Desk
Having a standing desk does not mean that you have to stand all day, of course. The ideal standing desk will allow you to sit comfortably when you need a break. With that in mind, you may want to look at a standing desk closely before making the purchase, just to make sure that it will be comfortable for a long day of work.
Additionally, you will want to seek outstanding desks that can be easily adjusted to meet a person’s physical needs. For example, a taller person probably won’t be comfortable if they have to bend over to type; similarly, a shorter person won’t get much done if they have to constantly move their desk to ensure they can reach their laptop.
This is where height adjustable standing desks come into play. Some standing desks have to be adjusted manually, but electric height adjustable desks have become increasingly popular. Such desks allow employees to customize the desk to match their physical needs.
Buying a Used Standing Desk or Height Adjustable Desk
Believe it or not, buying a standing desk or height-adjustable desk does not have to be prohibitively expensive. In fact, there are some notable advantages to buying used beyond cost:
Sustainability – A brand new desk does not just cost you the customer your hard-earned money; it also costs precious natural resources. Together we can spare those resources and keep an older but completely functional standing desk from being discarded simply by buying used.
Convenience – When you buy a desk from a major retailer, you have to spend hours tirelessly comparing one desk to another to make sure that you are getting your money’s worth and that the desk is exactly what you are looking for. Beyond that, you have to haul the desk to your office yourself or wait for it to be delivered. Save yourself time and money by shopping with us. At OIG we aim to ensure you get the exact standing desk that’s going to meet all of your needs.
