Healthy Office, Healthy Life
The VARIDESK is a sit / stand desk. It’s an effective, affordable, easy-to-use height adjustable desk for both home and office.
The VARIDESK allows you to work from either a standing or a sitting position, and makes it easy for you to switch positions as often as you like. It’s an adjustable platform that sits on top of your existing desk.
When you feel the need to stand, simply raise the VARIDESK up using the convenient handles on either side. Simply reverse the process to return to a seated position. You can also download the Varidesk app, which will remind you hourly to stand up.
Why Use a Varidesk?
Perhaps the most beneficial thing about stand up desks is how they can fight disease and promote good health. Research shows that staying in your chair for ten or more hours a week can be directly linked to weight gain, back issues and circulatory problems in the long run. In contrast, standing seems to reverse many of these illnesses.
Standing improves your breathing by allowing the chest to be fully open, giving full facility to the diaphragm, maximising the available capacity for air intake into your lungs and so delivering more oxygen to your body which in turn improves your concentration.
Instead of crouching over the computer screen, move naturally. This allows the body to burn calories and engages your muscles, the extra movement allows the blood to circulate throughout the body.
Standing is an effective approach to tackling high blood pressure. Hypertension is an excessive fall in blood pressure that occurs when a person stands up or is in an upright position.
It’s an old and recognised sales force technique – when you want to make a difficult sales call then stand up to do it! Standing up takes you out of the vulnerable seated position and puts you in a stance which is ready to deal with the deep instinctual dilemma of ‘fight or flight’. Try it for yourself and you’ll see that there is an increase in confidence as you literally stand to face any challenge. This additional confidence makes difficult tasks easier to approach.
Standing encourages mobility and constantly re-aligns the spine as you adjust your stance, engaging and strengthening the core muscles which in turn supports good posture.
