Here’s how to prevent sick leave or even permanent disability

It caught your attention, right? And rightly so, because sitting is the new smoking. We’ve heard this slogan for a while now, but what does it actually mean? Well, if you sit in the same position the whole working day, it increases the risk of chronic health problems such as heart disease, diabetes and even cancer. Not only physically but also mentally, prolonged sitting is a bummer. But what if you have an office job? Below we list five ergonomic solutions for a healthier posture during the workday.

Twist and turn

This wobble stool lets you wobble and turn. It not only rotates on its axis, but also rocks back and forth. This allows you move around. The stool is adjustable in height by pulling the leather loop under the seat. So do you want to use it as a standing aid or wobble stool? It’s all possible.

Adjustable height

Spending the entire day sitting at your desk is a thing of the past. The desks below are height-adjustable. This makes the possibilities endless; you can work sitting down, confer standing up or even lean in between on a standing aid. The desks are easily adjustable to your ideal height by means of a control panel. The ability to move and vary is the secret to a healthy workplace. This flexibility is not only better for your physical health, but also increases productivity.

Acoustic standing work unit

This acoustic unit allows you to work upright, brainstorm or briefly confer with your colleagues. A standing desk also has a positive impact on your health. It reduces back pain and improves your mood.

I want to ride my bicycle…

With this bike, you’ll give Eddy Merckx a run for his money at your desk. The most obvious reason you need a desk bike is because exercise is good for you. But like all the solutions above, it also improves your mood, productivity and energy levels. Finally, this desk bike does not interfere with your daily work. So you can use it every working day.

Of course, you can’t stand, hang or cycle all day. It is best to alternate the above solutions with a good ergonomic seating solution.
