Vitality Sit-Stand Desking & Tables

British people sit for almost nine hours a day on average – and office workers spend up to three-quarters of their working day on their posterior, according to a study led by Professor John Buckley of the University Centre Shrewsbury. The benefits of Sit-stand working have now been proven by research and this is not just the latest health-fad, but a workplace improvement that is here to stay. Here’s why:

  • Reduced risk of obesity

  • Reduced risk of cancer 1

  • Reduced risk of cardiovascular disease

  • Reduced risk of Type 2 diabetes and other metabolic problems

  • Lower long-term mortality risk

  • Sit-stand desks improve health and productivity 2
