Active Office Products You Need in 2017
We have talked and talked about the benefits of an active office. The research simply doesn’t lie – you have to get up and move during your workday! Taking a walk at lunch or using the stairs are great ways to be more active at work. But you may not always have time during the day to devote to those kinds of activities. Making the time spent at your desk more active can be very beneficial. Think about adding some of these products to your office to encourage activity.
Adjustable Height Desks
Fluid concepts Touch Table is a great addition to any space. It’s fully adjustable from sitting to standing height, and you can customize the look and adjustment mechanism to meet your needs. A series of these would be great in a community area because the table top comes in 36″-78″ widths. Adjustable height desks are an affordable solution for transitioning from sitting to standing throughout the day.
Sit To Stand Desks
What’s the difference between an adjustable height desk and a sit-to-stand desk? Well, it’s subtle. Typically sit-to-stand desks offer drawers and storage with a pop up top surface like this one from Indiana Furniture.
Or, a sit-to-stand attachment could be used on a standard desk. These are great items to retrofit a desk you already have, plus they are generally a little easier on the budget.
It may be a little unorthodox, but new treadmill desks are quickly becoming a popular choice at the office. Lifespan Treadmill Desks offers a range of budget options. They consist of a combination of a standing desk and the treadmill, which allows for more customization than an all-in-one unit. A treadmill desk works very well as a shared station. Employees can hop on for 30 minutes or so to break up their day.
Whichever product(s) you choose, you’ll be making an investment in your employee’s health. ROSI can help you get your office moving with their design and space planning services, so contact us today!
