Save 25% on our Pros and Cons of Sit-Stand Workstations Webinar

Overview
As the trend is toward a ‘paperless’ society, businesses have been transitioning from perceived
‘low skilled’ manual tasks to ‘higher skilled’ computer-based work. Today more information is being shared via computer, thus more work has become chair based.Published research reports are raising fears about the actual physiological risks of prolonged sitting. However, there are also potentially harmful consequences to prolonged standing that are often over looked.As with most things in life, somewhere there is a satisfactory middle ground.
This is also true for the Sit/Stand option.After determining that the back is healthy enough to safely engage in periods of standing, the worker needs to be coached on understanding the signs of fatigue and on the best Sit/Stand option.Incorporating frequent, safe, easy and practical ways to deal with the effects of gravity, will produce the best results for the worker that potentially minimizes fatigue and potential health risks.Sale: $29.95
