Biz Community – Stand your way to a healthy work life - The DeskStand method

March 02, 2015 Ryan Roberts

Have you recently heard the phrase 'standing is the new smoking'? Have your colleagues started to get up at random intervals of the day, propping up their keyboards and screens and then just stand there working? These are all symptoms of a new trend that has hit the working world.
Recent studies have shown that it is to your disadvantage to sit your nine-to-five day away. Those of us who have to sit the entire day, especially in front of a computer, will know that headaches, back pain and tense muscles is a common occurrence. Luckily, the solution is simple - get up! You won't regret it as the benefits are numerous. This new practice includes helping you burn more calories, greater attention span, higher productivity, higher energy levels, relieves back pain and headaches, improved posture and a longer life!
Aiding us in our quest for a healthier work style, there has been a massive surge in products to make standing and working much easier and comfortable; there are as many options as there are benefits to this. One such option is the DeskStand, created by local designer Ryan Roberts.

After watching my colleagues jump up every now then and trying it myself, I jumped at the opportunity to contact Ryan after the press release came in about his appearance on the Expresso Morning Show. He provided us with a DeskStand to try out and here's what he has to say about it himself
