Standing desks are all the rage these days in offices around the country, allowing employees the chance to get up out of their seats and comfortably stand while working for extended periods of time. Blue Rock is leading the way with a number of employees using the standing desks.

VARIDESK has been leading the way with height-adjustable standing desks that are easy-to-assemble and offer sublime ergonomics. But what makes VARIDESK the superior standing desk alternative, and why would you want a standing desk to begin with?

Let’s enjoy a brief overview of the myriad of health benefits standing desks provide, and then dial-down to see what makes the VARIDESK solution so special.

Health Benefits of Standing Desks

Standing desks are a relatively new phenomenon, and thus medical research into related health benefits is still in its infancy. However, the early prognosis is good. Very good.

There are a number of harmful effects that can arise from sitting too much for too long, but early research suggests standing desks bring a number of health benefits.

These may include:

Lowered Risk of Obesity

Simply standing as opposed to sitting will help your body burn calories. In fact, a recent study suggests that standing while working instead of sitting can help burn an additional 170 calories per day.

Conversely, sitting for extended periods of time is linked with metabolic disease and obesity.

Lowered Blood Sugar Levels

It’s agreed in medical circles that when blood sugar levels spike after meals, consequences arise for your health, particularly for those with type 2 diabetes.

However, studies have shown that standing for three hours after lunch reduced the associated blood sugar increase by a sizable 43%.

The VARIDESK Difference

Between the above health benefits and the fact that a recent Texas A&M study showed that call center employees that enjoyed standing desks for a six-month period were 46-percent more productive than those that operated at standard desks, it should be clear why standing desks are transforming the office landscape.

And when it comes to standing desks, VARIDESK really has no peer.

Each VARIDESK desk model offers a standing desk experience that features the perfect marriage of quality, affordability and ease-of-assembly.

VARIDESK makes it possible to work in a way that promotes both productivity and general health. Whether you’re concerned about weight, cardiovascular disease, cancer, blood sugar, or simply your back, VARIDESK is the superior standing desk solution.

Below are a few testimonials from Blue Rock employees and clients currently using their VARIDESK’s:

Sam Mckeon

Accountant @ Blue Rock

‘I’m absolutely stoked with my new VARIDESK I’ve had constant back trouble whilst sitting at my desk but changing things up and standing every hour or so throughout the day has made a huge difference.’

Tom Hay

Digital Growth & Innovation Consultant @ Blue Rock

‘My back was cactus after years of sitting in my chair. I now spend over 70% of my time standing and my posture has improved and I feel like my head is much clearer. Standing is great for energy!’

Jake Mckeon

Director @ 7 Star Social

‘I haven’t looked back since using my VARIDESK. Not only do I feel better, there’s no doubt I’m more productive and have more energy when standing. At first, I was wondering how comfortable I’d be standing for long periods but already I’ve found myself to be more comfortable standing than sitting. I’m confident that I’ll never go back to sitting in an office chair.’
