It is not uncommon for employees in Germany to sit at their desks for eight hours or more a day. This results in major health risks, which can also become chronic. Experts recommend taking a break from exercise after just 30 minutes of sitting. Because even after this short time, concentration and performance levels decrease enormously.

This is what makes the ergonomic standing stool for the office special In a classic office chair, you can lean back and rest your arms on the built-in backrests - that\u0026#39;s comfortable and you can adjust the chair at any time. However, you also tend to get a little too comfortable here and lean too far back - this puts a lot of strain on your spine and neck . In the course of the day, without noticing it, you quickly move backwards and almost lie as if in an armchair - a posture that is of course not particularly good for your back . An ergonomic sitting and standing stool is a better alternative here. It does without back and armrests, and you won\u0026#39;t find castors on this seat either.

An ergonomic sitting and standing stool also ensures that you never sit completely still thanks to the movable handle. The seat of the desqup Motion can be moved 360 degrees so that your body has to compensate for these movements. This permanently causes so-called \u0026quot;micro-movements\u0026quot;, which stimulate your circulation and also promote blood circulation. You can\u0026#39;t just put your arms down next to you with such an ergonomic sitting and standing stool in the office - you have to adjust the table so that there is a 90-degree angle in your arms. In this way, you automatically ensure that your table is set at the ideal height . A win-win situation for your health !

This can also lead to problems when working continuously while standing, especially if you accidentally shift your weight to one side .

When standing, the ergonomic sitting and standing stool in the office takes almost 60 percent of your body weight off - it combines the advantages of standing and sitting and makes it possible for you to work standing for longer without difficulties .
