Back pain is considered a “widespread disease” in Germany. From a certain age they are normal, everyone probably has them at some point in their life. But that\u0026#39;s over now, because people\u0026#39;s health awareness is increasing. People also pay attention to their own bodies at work, and this is reflected in the office furniture. Height-adjustable desks are a common sight in many companies. If you haven\u0026#39;t decided on one yet, today we\u0026#39;ll show you five advantages that you certainly wouldn\u0026#39;t expect! Brief information: General information about the height-adjustable desk So that you can better understand the other advantages, we have briefly summarized the most important properties of such a tool. Visually, the height-adjustable desk, for example from desqup, cannot be distinguished from a conventional model. Only a few small buttons on the front edge or a crank reveal that this table can do more. Height-adjustable desks are available with both manual and electronic adjustment. Modern, electric tables like the desqup can be adjusted within seconds at the push of a button. Your table should have these functions: Stepless height adjustment, preferably electric Memory function for different heights (saves time and nerves) Child lock, protects your table from unwanted operation Water and dirt repellent table top Obstacle detection (such as a cable) A height-adjustable table is good for your health and prevents poor posture. However, these are aspects that you probably already know - and after all, this article aims to cover some surprising advantages! If you are still interested in the health and psychological aspects of a height-adjustable table, please have a look at the desqup blogs . More freedom for higher productivity A situation from everyday (office) life that you certainly know: you have to sort large amounts of paper or do the post, and your whole table is full of documents. You keep bumping your elbow against the armrest of your chair or the edge of the table, your freedom of movement is severely restricted and you\u0026#39;re getting annoyed. This is where the first unanticipated benefit of the height-adjustable desk comes about. Thanks to the adjustment, you now have much more space to the left and right and can complete your task faster. You no longer feel constrained and you get hectic less quickly. Appearance \u0026amp;amp; self-confidence When sitting, you quickly fall into a protective or relaxed posture. You lean back in your chair and just let the team meeting or video conference pass you by - unfortunately that doesn\u0026#39;t make a particularly good impression. Standing makes you appear more confident, motivated, and natural. It\u0026#39;s the basic human attitude and also the healthiest if you don\u0026#39;t overdo it. This way you stand out better in front of colleagues, business partners or superiors and also represent your company appropriately.

Standing desk: space for something new A \u0026quot;regular\u0026quot; desk steals a lot of space in a room. You can\u0026#39;t slide anything under it and the chair doesn\u0026#39;t simply disappear under the tabletop when not in use. Together with a monitor mount, a floor mat and all accessories, it usually takes up the entire corner or wall of the office. Get the most out of small spaces with a height-adjustable desk. The chair disappears under the table and the mat on the floor is probably no longer needed since you mainly stand. You can also place a socket strip under the desk from desqup, which then doesn\u0026#39;t get in the way like a desk to sit on. The cable problem is thus also solved. Also interesting: Even if you store something under your standing desk, for example a larger plant, that\u0026#39;s no problem. The obstacle detection of the desqup Pro ensures that no mishaps occur due to a table moving up or down. Improving internal communication Again, an example from everyday life: A colleague of yours, who is about two minutes away in the same building, needs some documents from you. Now that you\u0026#39;re sitting so comfortably, you scan them in and email them to him - the matter was quickly taken care of. However, it is also very impersonal and this is where the problem lies. In many companies today there is hardly any personal interaction - the height-adjustable desk is changing that too. Since you\u0026#39;re already standing anyway, you\u0026#39;re also more inclined to do things in person. Going to the boss, going for a walk or having a real meeting instead of a virtual one becomes more frequent and easier again - our experience shows that! It also improves the working atmosphere and promotes team spirit. Higher basal metabolic rate: Healthier through passive movement When you sit, your body shuts down completely. Your metabolism slows down and you burn virtually no calories because you only move your hands and possibly your head slightly. Noticeably or not, you always move slightly while standing. Your basal metabolic rate, i.e. your calorie consumption, is therefore also higher and you would be more likely to lose weight. Of course, this alone is not enough to maintain a healthy body in the long term, but it is the best alternative to long periods of sitting. In addition, your muscles in the legs and lower body will be improved, since the body has to stabilize itself permanently. Poor posture can hardly occur with the correct table height and tension is now extremely rare. The height-adjustable table is therefore an all-round healthy affair for you! Conclusion: Height-adjustable desk, yes or no? The retirement age is getting higher and higher. You already have to work until old age, which puts a strain on your health anyway and regardless of the job. If an unhealthy, unergonomic workplace is added to this, the state of health can change drastically for the worse. A height-adjustable desk is therefore the best solution, no matter what age. Even if you are completely healthy, it helps you to have a focused and productive workday. You can get the desqup Pro for 449 euros, including all important functions and made of high-quality materials.
