Best Standing Desk Guide

Best Standing Desk Guide

For years, we’ve been told that sitting for prolonged periods can have lots of long-term detrimental effects on our health. The standing desk revolution is here to combat these effects and get those who lead sedentary lifestyles back on their feet and moving during working hours.

If putting yourself and your health first is a priority for you, (which it should be), the addition in your life of one of the best standing desks available could be the key to getting more active. Plenty of studies analysing the benefits of standing desks have been conducted and a common result is that they significantly reduce back pain and lower blood sugars, if used after lunch.

Of course, even the top standing desks have their downsides. Prolonged standing without moving can be uncomfortable and standing consistently for eight hours a day isn’t good for your leg or back muscles. Luckily, there are some handy devices available that promote movement and boost comfort. From anti-fatigue mats to boards that provide a stable, active base, the best standing desks can be fully customised and accessorised to ensure that you have the best, most comfortable experience possible.

So, how do you choose which of the best standing desks is the best for you? Well, at FRISKA we have a range of workstations to suit a wide range of work environments. We have height adjustable standing desks, mobile workstations and even corner desks that can be customised and adjusted to your needs. Our guide aims to help you discover the full FRISKA range of top standing desks and the best mobile workstations, so that you can make an informed decision about which one is best for you…
