Alas, the history and break down of iconic height adjustable tables. A work of art that many don’t know have been in existence for hundreds of years. Height adjustable tables have served many purposes since the introduction of this invention in the 18th Century. Even one of our Founding Fathers, Thomas Jefferson, put this table to good use. Now, growing ever more popular, sit-stand tables have become a commodity all across the globe.
Now that we have established a brief history on height adjustable tables, one may ask, why are they important? In today’s typical eight hour work day many people find themselves going home with sore necks and backs. Studies have shown that sitting for extended periods of time will have a long term negative impact on your health. The lack of movement and physical activity will always be harmful to the human body. Potential risks of a sedentary lifestyle include, but are not limited to, diabetes, arthritis, cardiovascular issues, and sometimes even cancer. No matter how comfortable your office chair may be, we always recommend standing periodically throughout your work day. Raising sedentary lifestyle awareness during work hours is extremely important, and height adjustable tables could be one of many solutions to this prevalent issue. In my opinion, there’s no better way than by simply raising your desk and continuing to work more efficiently.
There are three different types of height adjustable tables; the hand crank, electric mechanism, or counterbalance system. All of which can be used to improve working conditions at home or in the office.
