Sit-stand workstations are highly recommended from an ergonomic point of view and have been proven to be effective in preventing back pain. Therefore, all office workers who sit at a computer screen continuously for more than two hours should be able to switch from sitting to standing (Source: Bewegung im Arbeitsalltag – sitzen, stehen, gehen. 11.04.2022- https://www.ergo-online.de/).
- The effect of alternating standing and sitting means that the concentration can remain at a high level for longer (Source: Ebara, et al., 2008.).
- The actual work performance during VDU work is also improved by sitting standing desk (Source: Garrett et al., 2016, Choi, 2010, Hedge and Ray, 2004.).
