Working in the office we spend our time sitting more than ever before. That is why we need to seriously consider our well-being in the workplace and the factors influencing it. Our bodies are not designed to stay in one position for a long time, therefore we need to move and be active.

WHY OPT FOR A SIT STAND SOLUTION?

The ability to sit and stand during the average working day has huge health benefits to the user and it’s this active working style that encourages increased staff productivity and reduced absenteeism.
