Lifting desk is a desk designed for alternate working modes of standing and sitting.
Traditional sitting desks are often made of standardised fixed heights, but lift desks can be adjusted to suit each user.
Lift tables may seem like a relatively new invention, but they have been used by humans for more than 150 years, with historical figures including Charles Dickens and Winston Churchill reportedly using specially designed desks to write standing up.
What are the benefits of a lift table?
Two-thirds of office workers sit at their desks for more than six hours a day. That's because a sedentary lifestyle has been shown to lead to a variety of health problems, including lower back spondylosis and an increased risk of diabetes and heart disease.
The good news is that standing desks offer a low-risk and cost-effective solution to reduce the amount of sedentary time the typical office worker spends during the workday, thereby reducing the adverse health effects.
