Stand-Up Chairs & Office Desk Stools
Encourage workers to move between sitting and standing throughout the day
Stand-up chairs and office desk stools offer the perfect solution for tired feet in busy, active work spaces like restaurants, kitchens and pharmacies. Our stand-up chairs and office desk stools are easily-adjustable ergonomic stools that encourage good posture and movement, while helping active workers take the weight off their feet whenever they need to. Many of our designs are portable and compact so they can be easily stored and bought out for spontaneous breaks and meetings.
What is a stand-up chair?
A stand-up chair is an ergonomic, height-adjustable stool that makes it easier to alternate between sitting and standing throughout the day.
Why are stand-up chairs needed?
Employers are required to provide suitable seating for all employees under health and safety law. While we know it’s not healthy to sit down for long periods of time (over six hours of sitting a day raises the risk of conditions like diabetes, heart disease and obesity according to some studies), there are also health risks associated with standing for long periods of time.
Around half of UK workers spend most of their working days on their feet – with professionals such as receptionists, assembly line workers and retail staff often having to stand in one place for hours at a time. Prolonged standing can put pressure on the lower limbs, increasing the risk of aching muscles, limb swelling, varicose veins and even coronary heart disease.
What are the benefits of using a stand-up chair?
Stand-up chairs encourage workers to move between sitting and standing throughout the day.
