Electric lifting tables have become popular, mainly because people who work today sit at their desks many times a day. Many studies have shown that the cumulative effects of sitting at a desk all day and the health risks of a sedentary lifestyle include obesity, heart disease and cancer. At this time, the benefits of the electric lift table are revealed. You can alternate between standing and sitting during work to reduce the risk of illness.
So, what are the benefits of using an electric lift table at work? The following are the health benefits of a standing desk in the workplace:
1. Standing can reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes
Using an electric lift table to extend long sitting time can help lower blood sugar levels, thereby reducing the risk of type 2 diabetes.
According to Diabetes Research, sitting for an hour longer can increase the risk of metabolic syndrome by 39% and increase the risk of type 2 diabetes by 22%.
However, by standing for a long time, standing or walking quickly to extend the rest time, you can greatly reduce the risk of suffering from this lifestyle disease.
With an electric lifting table, you can do this almost instantly.
Therefore, if you are pre-diabetes or have a family history of the disease, it is worth considering working more actively with the help of standing.
2. Electric lifting tables can reduce the risk of back or neck problems
Back pain is very common among office workers, especially those who work at their desks for long hours. In Singapore, 80% of Singaporeans suffer from some form of back or neck pain at some point in their working lives. Poor posture when sitting for too long is one of the most common causes of lower back pain, because sitting will take 90% more pressure than when standing.
According to reports, participants with chronic low back pain improved by 32% after using the electric lift table for a few weeks.
This is when the ergonomically designed electric stand-up desktop converter comes in handy.
If you suffer from neck or back pain, please consult a doctor or physical therapist to find out if an electric lift table can help you relieve back or neck problems.
3. Standing can reduce the risk of heart disease
British researchers found that the risk of “sudden death” from a heart attack to a bus driver who sits all day is three times that of a commander who sits all day.
How are their jobs different? Bus drivers sit there all day, while bus conductors mostly rely on their feet. This is the first time people have discovered a link between a sedentary lifestyle and heart disease.
Other studies conducted to understand the effects of sitting posture on heart health have shown that sedentary time increases the risk of cardiovascular disease by up to 147%.
4. Standing can reduce the risk of cancer
Some studies have found that inactive people have a higher risk of certain types of cancer.
A study conducted by the American Institute of Cancer Research showed that as many as 49,000 cases of breast cancer and 43,000 cases of colon cancer in the United States each year are related to lack of exercise.
Even without a clear explanation of this correlation, scientists have found that people who sit for a long time have more C-reactive protein. This is a factor in the development of cancer.
In this way, it is really necessary to use an electric lifting table. Various elevator table brands are also emerging in China. It is very important to choose an electric elevator table produced by a regular company.
