Praca przy biurku elektrycznym. Cztery największe korzyści.

Working at an electric desk. The four biggest benefits.

Why is it worth changing your working position from sitting to standing? How does our body react when we sit for too long? Why is it worth using electrically adjustable desks while working? The spine and all other systems of our body do not like staying in the same position for too long, it is worth planning to work at a desk in blocks; 45 minutes of sitting work and 30 minutes of standing work. We have selected the 4 most important areas that are positively influenced by such a work system. Read on and change your desk to one that will support your body every day.

Circulatory system. Regularly changing position has an anticoagulant effect.

The human body is the most perfect invention. It works like communicating vessels. With small steps, we can ensure the highest level of work comfort. Standing up regularly prevents the formation of clots in the blood vessels of the lower limbs, especially the calves. At the same time, we support the functioning of the muscle pump and improve circulation in the venous system, which means in practice that working at a desk with an adjustable top prevents, among others: varicose veins.

Working at an adjustable desk relieves the spine.

The spine, like any structure in our body, does not like monotony. The intervertebral disc (commonly known as the disc) is a structure with poor blood supply and "likes" movement. Any, even minimal, activity makes the disc more vascular and, consequently, better nourished and hydrated. Thanks to this, we reduce the frequency of back pain and maintain "spine hygiene". After a few hours at the desk, we do not feel any discomfort.

Knee-joint. Reducing the load on the meniscus.

This may not be obvious, but meniscus and prolonged sitting at a desk can cause a lot of problems in the future. On average, 850,000 meniscal surgeries are performed annually in the United States. times. [2] A large number of people seeking treatment work mainly in a sitting position. While sitting, i.e. when the knee is held at a right angle, the meniscus reduces compression by as much as 85%. [3] In other words, she "takes" the entire burden, which may contribute to her injury in the long run. In addition, the meniscus distributes more than half of the compression loads. Working at an adjustable desk will help keep it in good shape.

Digestive system. Stimulation of intestinal peristalsis.

By changing position at least every 45 minutes, we make our digestive system work more efficiently and burn more calories. The work of the abdominal muscles stimulates the intestinal movements. It's safe to say that exercise is really good for your belly. When we do not move, food content accumulates in the intestines, which causes the growth of unfavorable bacterial flora and flatulence. Standing work will not replace walking, but it will be a great addition to a healthy lifestyle.
