Upright Ergonomics

Standing desks reflect the need for more integrated ergonomic activities

Implications - With long workdays often leaving employees with little to no time for physical exercise, consumers are looking to more integrated ways to make office environments more conducive to their overall health. Seeking to add increased movement into the ordinarily idle office culture, consumers are turning to ergonomic furnishings like standing desks to encourage physical exercise. This reflects the need for more practical ways to assimilate health-related activities into everyday routines.
