Will offices in the UK change to standing desks in 2016?
One desk has been specifically designed to help those looking for a healthier way to work- the VARIDESK.
The innovative VARIDESK Sit Stand range of desks allows workers to sit or stand and was designed to address the negative side-effects of being seated for the majority of the working day. Standing at work isn't a far fetched notion.
The VERIDESK is a retrofit adjustable platform that sits on top of your existing desk. When you need to stand and work, you can raise the desk up using the handles on either side. Simply stand up to use your computer as normal.
If you’re looking for a seamless standing desk solution for your working space, the VARIDESK offers up the opportunity to transform your existing desk into a ‘standing’ desk with ease.
Do you use a standing desk? Or perhaps your health professional suggested you work at one? We'd love to hear your thoughts.
