Sit-to-Stand
Is Here to Stay

How to ensure it benefits your people
and your organization

Take a Stand for Movement

Combined with good chairs, height-adjustable work surfaces provide 
the variety people need to sit well, stand well, and be well.

Movement leads to better physical—and financial—health, setting the 
stage for performance, well-being, 
and even happiness.

Strike a Balance

Strike a Balance

Standing all day is not the cure for sitting all day. Alternating between 
the two during the day is best.

Boost Movement

Boost Movement

Some people do work that keeps 
them at their desks all day. They 
need movement more than anyone. 
A sit-to-stand solution gives it to 
them, right at their desks.

Experience

Experience

In 1968, Robert Propst wrote, "Man's physical machine has evolved to do many things well but no single thing continuously. . . . The office can be 
a kinetic active, alert, vigorous environment." His Action Office system featured a stand-up desk, which he argued "would do more than anything else to overcome sedentary decline." We’ve offered standing surfaces 
ever since.

Insight

Insight

At its best, design is a response to social change; we developed Living Office in response to the evolution of work. A purposeful variety of settings helps people feel more creative, connected, and engaged in their work. 
So does purposeful movement. Our ongoing ergonomic research shows the combination of sitting, standing, and moving in varying amounts is vital, especially at the desk.

Research shows that a choice between sitting and standing combined with training on the benefits of postural change is most effective at reducing sitting time, which benefits both the individual and the organization. Our Ergonomics Consultants can help organizations reduce risk factors while increasing employee health, comfort, and productivity.

Renew Link

Designed by Brian Alexander

Renew Link delivers everything organizations like about benching systems (specifically, their high density), while addressing many of the things workers would like to 
change about them (low privacy and high distraction). 
And by accommodating both sitting and standing working postures, it brings a new level of individual choice to shared work environments.
