Like others you're wondering if an UpDesk is really worth it. Let me go ahead and answer that question. Yes. I can say that with confidence because I've had the opportunity to use one of our PowerUps on a daily basis for the past two weeks (and counting). Nothing has opened my eyes this much since I found out fortune cookies were actually invented in America not China.... Who knew?
When weighing the benefits between an UpDesk and a traditional desk one can not ignore the facts.
1) Sitting increases risk of death up to 40%.
2) People with sitting jobs have twice the rate of cardiovascular disease as people with standing jobs.
3) The average American spends 55% of waking time (7.7 hours per day) in sedentary behaviors such as sitting.
4) Chewing gum burns more energy than sitting.
Not sure if you could stand up all day or would even want to? UpDesk gives the user the ability to sit OR stand seamlessly throughout their day. It's the best of both worlds. Do yourself (and your body) a favor; get an UpDesk. Oh... and don't forget to tell your friends about us.
