The Height Adjustable Table
In our country, it is common to say that one day the "tables
will turn", but, how beneficial is this in office design in the Bahamas?
Well, to answer your question, not as beneficial as a table that can go
up or down to accommodate sitting or standing positions. Ladies and
Gentlemen, the moment, you've been waiting for. Please give a rousing
round of applause to Style Office Solutions, better known as SOS who now
proudly presents to you the Height Adjustable Table.
At last, you can create an active workspace with an electric
sit-stand desk. At SOS, we have realised that the human body is
carefully designed to be in motion, and not to be sitting for extended
periods of time. Movement is imperative for spinal health, by improving
circulation and reducing muscle fatigue. How many hours a day do you or
your employees spend sitting behind a desk? Too much? We knew that would
be your answer!
According to recent research, it is said that employees
should get out of their chairs and be active for at least five minutes
during every hour of the work day. Realistically, many persons may view
this break for employees as downtime or a loss to the company, however,
the with the Height Adjustable Table the company and the employee
benefits. Win win! Below are a few benefits we would like to share with
Alternating between sitting and standing positions is critical for us to keep our bodies healthy and prevent illness.
Regular movement adjusts the amount of load being put on the
body, increases specific body part rest intervals, and thus reduces the
adverse effect of risk factors.
Height Adjustable Tables allow management to easily adapt a
desk to a wide variety of people (aging, disabled and obese), instead of
trying to adapt a diverse workforce to one or two fixed desk
configurations. This adaptability allows users to work using their
bodies' optimal "Neutral Posture" - which is the work posture where your
body is strongest and most efficient.
Height Adjustable Tables allow the user to select a working
position that is ideal for their body. Employees who alternate between a
sitting and standing positions will have more energy, experience
reduced fatigue levels, and reduce their risk of injury caused by
working in one body position too long.
Employees who aren't given the flexibility of moving away
from their workstations every hour will benefit tremendously by using a
sit-stand desk that allows them a break from their static posture
without leaving their work area or stopping their work.
The investment an organization makes in a Height Adjustable
Table takes a preventative step towards reducing employee discomfort and
It's not about how much money you make, it's how you save it!
The Height Adjustable Table provides an avenue where your company can
not only save money, but, also save its employees money. The more
comfortable an employee is, the more work they are able to produce. The
more work an employee is able to produce, the more revenue a company can
acquire. By now we are sure that you've gotten the message.
Visit SOS today and make the investment into your company as
well as the lives of your employees with the Height Adjustable Table.
See you soon!
