What the research says about sit-stand workstations, including how to ensure you get the benefits you’re paying for
The research is pretty clear. Sitting all day – sedentary behavior – isn't good for us (see recently released white paper 'What's wrong with sitting?'). But are sit-stand workstations the answer?
To help separate the facts from the hype Wellnomics commissioned a reserach review covering nearly 50 published research studies on sit-stand workstation usage, with a particular focus on office workers.
The results make for interesting reading - with the research suggesting sit-stand workstations, unless implemented correctly, can be completely ineffective at reducing sedentary office risks.
