Health at work is becoming increasingly important. As a result of demographic change, more and more people will be in the workplace into old age, which is why they want to take the first precautions at an early stage. This also includes ergonomic office furniture such as a height-adjustable desk and a sitting and standing stool. But does such a standing aid make sense for everyone? We\u0026#39;ve looked at the facts! Risks in everyday work - is sitting the new widespread disease? Most jobs these days are largely done while seated. In the EU, four out of ten workers spend most of their work sitting down - but what\u0026#39;s the problem here? If you sit too much, you risk your health – that\u0026#39;s the simplest way to put it. When sitting, various functions of the human body no longer work properly. For example, your metabolism slows down and you burn fewer calories - the so-called \u0026quot;basic metabolic rate\u0026quot; decreases. So you gain weight if you don\u0026#39;t otherwise adjust your activity level. The lack of exercise also increases the risk of diseases of the coronary arteries, including heart attacks. Back pain and, unfortunately, herniated discs are still a widespread disease in Germany. Over 60 percent of people say they have suffered from back pain over the past year. This doesn’t just come from working, many everyday activities are also done sitting down, such as eating or housework. If the desk is at the wrong height, bad posture will develop in the shoulder and neck area, which will usually become painful in the long run. These are just two of the many disadvantages of sitting for too long. As an employee, you will inevitably have to switch to ergonomic furniture if you often work in the office. An ergonomic sitting and standing stool, such as the desqup Wobble , helps you to relax your joints, back and neck. What exactly he does, we look at in the following paragraphs. What is an ergonomic sit and stand stool? The desqup Wobble belongs to the family of office chairs. It can be adjusted in height and thus combines the advantages of sitting and standing work. It is slightly smaller than normal office chairs and has a heavily padded surface made from permeable material. With it, all the negative aspects of long periods of sitting can be prevented. You can adjust the ergonomic sitting and standing stool individually to your height. In addition, a good, healthy stool should have the following properties: Non-slip underside - No matter what the surface, a stable stand is essential when working. Only then can you really concentrate on your posture and not develop a protective posture. The underside should therefore consist of rubber and, at best, have nubs Resilience - The ergonomic sit and stand stool must be able to easily support your body weight. The seat should also be of high quality so that it does not wear out under high loads. If you only use it as a standing aid, then it should support at least 60 percent of your body weight Height adjustment – The most important function is the height adjustment. This is the only way to guarantee that you work in a really healthy and back-friendly manner Materials – Your chair should be of high quality. Stainless steel or aluminum are recommended if you want them to last as long as possible. The seat is also a wear part. It is best made of nylon or synthetic fiber so that it lasts for a long time even with frequent use The desqup Wobble combines all of these properties. For 149.00 euros you get a reliable tool, developed in Germany. You can find out more about the benefits on our product page! Standing aid for back pain? – The area of application of a sitting and standing stool Regardless of the age of the user, an ergonomic standing aid always makes sense. Even with sport after work, the risks of a long, sedentary activity are not eliminated. While sitting is the worse evil, standing for long periods of time also has negative consequences: heavily stressed joints and muscles can hurt or even cramp. The aim is to prevent this with the standing stool by absorbing part of the body weight. The desqup Wobble is not only a real relief for you in everyday office life. It can also be a real relief for you in the following activities and areas of application: Household chores such as ironing or sorting Cooking \u0026amp;amp; baking in the kitchen When reading \u0026amp;amp; writing On sick days as a substitute for long periods of sitting As you can see, the standing stool is not only a help in the office, it is a real all-rounder. Especially in combination with a height-adjustable desk, it makes everyday office life livelier and healthier. In the Blog section you will find many more articles on how you can make your everyday work healthier. This is how the ergonomic sitting and standing stool works Depending on the setting, the advantages of the ergonomic office stool vary. Whether sitting or standing, work is always more dynamic and active. When sitting, the usual backrest of an office chair is no longer available. Your back must therefore stabilize the upright posture on its own. Poor posture such as the well-known \u0026quot;hunched back\u0026quot; or a stiff neck are effectively avoided. After you get used to the missing backrest, you won\u0026#39;t notice much difference from your previous chair - except for your back pain. The Wobble can be adjusted in just a few steps using a compression spring. Adjusting to your height is therefore so important so that your neck and shoulders do not tense up. The compression spring is extremely durable and, compared to electrical adjustment, it can hardly break. When standing, the stool as a standing aid combines the advantages of sitting with those of standing. About 60 percent of your body weight is on the chair, while your legs support the remaining 40. This means that your joints and tendons are not put under too much strain, but they also don\u0026#39;t have to contort like they would if you were sitting. In addition, your back as well as your neck and neck area is straight and not tense. The \u0026quot;healthier standing\u0026quot; keeps your circulation going and you feel fitter and more productive. In addition, you are more inclined to move around and then prefer to talk to colleagues in person than by phone or e-mail - tests have shown that. The ergonomic sitting and standing stool is the ideal solution in the office for young and old. The back position can be changed within seconds, and back experts also recommend this change. Tip : It is best to sit for a maximum of forty minutes at a time. Then, according to experts, you should stand for at least 15 minutes and walk for five minutes.
