We have put together answers to the most frequently asked questions we get here:

  1. Are standing desks good for you?
    Working on your desk standing up is great for alleviating poor sedentary habits you may pick up in the office.
    Sitting for long periods of time tightens your muscles and can hurt your lower back, especially if you have bad posture. There are numerous benefits of investing in a sit stand up desk. One study showed that standing at work sheds 88 calories an hour as well as reductions in back pain, improved posture, help with wrist position and improved blood circulation.

  2. Do standing desks help with posture?
    Yes, it absolutely does! Having an adjustable sit stand desk with proper ergonomics can help you with good posture whilst working away on your laptop of computer.
    We advise that you always aim to place your monitor at eye level, about 50 cm away from your face at a 20-degree tilt, whilst you should bend your arms at 100-degree angles to your sides. Wrists should hover comfortably above the keyboard, with weight shifting between legs.
    With an adjustable work desk, standing up with correct posture position will start to become second nature and doesn’t put the compression on your spine that sitting can. Sitting for more extended periods can put pressure on your back and discs, leading to back, shoulder, and neck discomfort. 

  3. How long should you use a standing desk?
    Chiropractors recommend regularly alternating back and forth between sitting and standing during the working day. It is best to do 30 minutes of each at a time, but if one is used to sitting, increase the amount of sitting time to about 45 minutes and 30 minutes standing would be best.
    Standing too much can become uncomfortable and irritate the hips or back if they have any prior injuries.

  4. How to cable manage a standing desk?
    A key part of the stand up computer desk cable management puzzle is the positioning of the power strip. Unplug everything, make sure you have a surge protector, and check the underside of the desk for a recessed trench that is designed to house the cables for all of your devices. Put all of the cables into the compartment on the underside of the desk - also known as a grommet.
    You can do this with double-sided tape, attaching the compartment to the bottom of the desk. Plug everything into the surge protector and then plug that into the wall outlet. Consider tidying everything up with cable or zip ties.

  5. How tall is a standing desk?
    Our adjustable sit stand desk is equipped with dual low-decibel motors with centimetre perfect level adjustment that could adjust to an extended lift range of 65 - 130 cm with a 125kg lift capacity.
    You can transition up and down with ease. Better yet, there are 4 preset levels you can save for your favourite heights. 

  6. How to reset a sit stand desk?
    If you're having issues with your electric stand up desk, try resetting it by following these steps:
    1. Lower the height of your adjustable desk down to the lowest height setting and release the down button
    2. Press and hold the down button - do not release the down button.
    3. The handset and motor are now reset.

  7. Are sit stand desks worth it?
    No bias here but we firmly believe that an ergonomic standing desk is  worth the investment. A recent trial of 146 office workers by the British Medical Journal showed that the implementation of standing desks into the office improved job performance and work engagement whilst decreasing occupational fatigue, 'presenteeism', daily anxiety and quality of life.
