Ergotron Highlights Sit-Stand Computing Trends at Health & Wellbeing At Work

LONDON--(Marketwire - Mar 5, 2013) -  Ergotron is exhibiting its portfolio of WorkFit Sit-Stand Workstations for computer workers at Health & Wellbeing At Work in NEC Birmingham, 5-6 March, a conference designed to improve the health and wellbeing of work-aged people. Ergotron's WorkFit products offer businesses a new strategy for encouraging healthier workstyles in the office, helping to reduce risks associated with prolonged sitting, absenteeism and improving job satisfaction.

"There are many factors that contribute to worker comfort, satisfaction and productivity and it is now clear that the simple act of standing more does have an effect on all three," said Steve Belcher, Ergotron country manager, United Kingdom, "Giving workers an appropriate means of spending more time on their feet throughout the day is a challenge, making access to sit-stand computer workstations all that more important."

A recent study from the University of Maastricht, the Netherlands, supports that "reducing inactivity by low intensity activities such as walking at a leisurely pace and standing" is an effective means of reducing sedentary time. These findings correspond with other global research being conducted (Research.juststand.org) that reveals access to sit-stand products is a viable solution for businesses developing wellness initiatives to keep people focused and productive in the workplace.

Ergotron's WorkFit line consists of easy to install and affordable desk add-ons, freestanding desks and mobile carts. The broad portfolio ensures that every workspace has the most functional and ergonomic solution for comfortable computing, whether outfitting a main office, back office, lab or warehouse area.

Designed with Ergotron's patented Constant Force technology, WorkFit units offer users 51 cm of instantaneous, tool-free sit-stand height adjustability, for non-motorized re-positioning and frequent postural rotation. Sit-stand work routines encourage healthy movement during extended periods of computer use and improve energy and focus throughout the day.
