ER­GONOMICS: THE IM­PACT OF STAND­ING DESKS

Friday - - Health -

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.
