In our blog back in October we highlighted the under-utilised Sit-Stand desks and how these can be beneficial to our bodies and minds! Standing for 15 minutes each hour can assist with burning calories, weight loss and an overall increase in our health and well-being. It can even add years to your life!
Now there is a tool to assist with making this work/lifestyle transition even easier. Desk Control™ is the new DESKLINE® software desk panel for use in all types of office desks. It’s as easy as installing software onto your computer and making it work for you! There are reminders that will instruct you to stand or sit throughout the day and also give you feedback on standing time achieved and the calories burnt!
Another great tool to know about is the Bluetooth control which allows the desk height to be modified without the direct use of the desk controls via your smartphone or tablet. The app can be downloaded for free to support both Android & IOS.
Linak also have some great tools that calculate the annual benefits of standing while you work over at their website: http://www.movingdesks.com/calculators/potential-yearly-health-benefits/
