Recent research suggests that movement is vital to health. As the pioneer of a healthier, more active workplace, Humanscale has designed innovative sit/stand solutions that encourage users to alternate postures. Both the Float desk and Quickstand allow users to adopt a healthy and balanced level of activity as they work.
The human body is designed to move and neither sitting nor standing all day is good for us. Moving has obvious benefits; increasing metabolism, using different muscle groups and most importantly reducing the load on the lumbar spine which is greater when sitting than standing.
