ERGONOMICS: THE IMPACT OF STANDING DESKS
A recent study conducted by the Mayo Clinic has shown if you stand for just two hours through the day, you can burn an additional 340 calories, says Alan. ‘We should stand for at least three minutes every hour. In doing this you reduce health risks and increase your productivity.’ A Gallup study says, sit/stand desks* have proven to improve overall health of the users. Businesses benefit as much as employees with 21 per cent increased productivity, 22 per cent increased profitability and 37 per cent lower absenteeism. * Available at select stores from Dh795.
