• Chrisbeon see a surge in sit/stand workstation orders

        • Customers Chris and Sue Blake show ergonomic benefits extend to home office

          Only one percent of British workers have stand up desks, yet office furniture supplier Chrisbeon have seen increased orders and believe ‘the health benefits of standing desks are now being widely recognised in this country.’

          Chrisbeon’s Varidesk standing work station, which gives users the option to sit or stand, has been at the forefront of this latest development with customers giving positive feedback.

          Customers Dechra Veterinary Products Ltd have already bought 11 desks. Their Digital Marketing Developer, Kathryn Humphrey said, “I now have far less back pain and am building up better supporting muscles which is brilliant for my long term health. It really is easy to swap from standing up to sitting down if I feel tired, but I am able to stand for much longer periods than I ever thought possible.”

          Supply Planner for Dechra Pharmaceuticals Plc, Lorane Scott had been working at the company’s central distribution hub in Denmark where 100 percent have stand up desks. She said, “I have been saying for years that there is certainly a health benefit to getting up and moving around and it was a good call by this business to start investing in stand up desks.”

          As new medical guidance led by Professor John Buckley states that workers should abandon their chairs for half a day, the company hope to see a steady increase in sales.

          Stationery and Furniture Sales Partner at Chrisbeon, Richard Hughes said, “we believe the demand for height adjustable standing desks will continue to increase as more and more office workers experience their value in terms of the drive to promote physical movement in the workplace.”

          Prices for the electric height adjustable sit-stand desk start at £417 plus VAT or £245 plus VAT for the manual version.
