What can the WellWorkStation Standing Desk do for you?
A Standing Desk is the perfect tool for heathy home or office working. Back pain is a huge problem for office workers. It is said to cost the UK economy £20 billion every year! The British Chiropractic Association research found that British workers take an average of 12 days off a year with back pain. Much of this is attributed to poor posture when working, whether this is in the office or from home.
Employers have a responsibility to ensure staff have a safe workspace. Unfortunately, at the moment, this is often at the bottom of the priority list. More and more people are working from home in a makeshift workspace. Those that are still going into the office are often working under stressful conditions and do not want to complain. Even employers that are trying their best to do the right thing can find it difficult to cater for every individual’s shape and size.
When working, your posture is all important but so easy to forget. Your desk may not be the correct height for you, your keyboard may be too high or too low or your screen could be too close or too far away. All these factors and more can affect your posture and in turn cause back, neck or other musculoskeletal problems.
The WellWorkStation standing desk has been designed with the advice and guidance of Osteopath, Terry Emery, who works in busy Moore Osteopathy Clinic, in Nottingham. Its flexibility and portability make it an ideal solution to keep the perfect posture whether at home or in the office. Positioned on top of your desk, your laptop or tablet fits perfectly on its completely height-adjustable ledges. With no set positions, the WellWorkStation can adjust to the exact right height for you.
The WellWorkStation works perfectly whether you prefer to sit at your desk or find standing a better way to work. Osteopath, Terry Emery, recommends standing at your workstation is far better for the health of your neck, shoulders and upper back.
He says “Since lockdown I have been so busy with back and neck problems caused by people working form home. I always advise standing is better for you than slouching over a desk. The further forward your head is, the heavier it becomes and the more strain it puts on your neck and back which in turn is a major cause of headaches. A standing desk enables you to keep your back straight and keep your head upright. With the WellWorkStation you can adjust all the shelves to the exact height you need. This includes shelves for the keyboard and mouse to keep your arms and shoulders at the right angle. These measures will reduce muscle and joint pain that is so common in desk workers.
