Sitting and standing
Wellness in the office living space
Occupational health workers are increasingly encouraging more exercise in the office – that is, a natural balance of movement between sitting and standing work postures. If you move about you are able to think better. A work day should provide a balance of sitting, standing and moving.
Many workers today find lack of movement in the office a burden but unfortunately not everyone is entirely aware yet of the health and economic consequences of a permanently sedentary work posture. For this reason office planning should include work-place design and furniture appropriate to providing sufficient inducements for movement.
The best solution here is a comfortable height-adjustable sit-at/stand-at work station such as the Series 901. It offers a sufficiently large range of adjustment so that work postures may be alternated, sitting or standing, according to individual requirements. Changing the work height is easy and uncomplicated; the version with infinite, motorized height adjustment enables the user to attain the desired table height simply by the touch of a button.
Carcass furniture as well, such as the rack for use near the work-station, can provide spontaneous opportunities for movement and temporary changes of work posture, e.g. while using the phone or during short meetings standing up. The rack also provides a good work height for taking notes.
Meetings furniture that promotes movement
Meetings furniture used standing up promotes movement and is thus ergonomically sound. In contrast to seated meetings, it offers additional opportunities for movement, and also usually shortens the meetings time, thus promoting efficiency at work.
For this you can just use a stand-at table or, alternatively, the infinitely adjustable sit-at/stand-at meetings table. The RondoLift with comfortable gas-operated height control can be quickly and easily adapted for any situation.
Likewise it is ergonomically sound to facilitate more movement when sitting. The PantoMove-Soft has a 3D tilt mechanism for dynamic sitting. That is: By forward or backward tilting, or by sideways tilt tolerance, the change between the different seated postures is supported. So the PantoMove follows every movement of the body and at that same time encourages the body posture to adjust repeatedly. The soft upholstery provides high-level seat comfort.
