Millions of people worldwide sit at a desk all day, and over recent years this has led to the increase of physical inactivity in the workplace- now described as ‘sitting disease’. Long periods of sitting can cause harmful effects on health such as weight increase and neck and back pains. To help combat these modern day problems sit/stand desks have been introduced into the workplace allowing staff members to alternate between sitting and standing throughout the day.
