Do you sit when you work? According to Safe Work Australia; excessive sitting is a WHS issue. Up to 50% of workers in Australia sit when working, and the average work time per day is 8-9 hours. Effects of long-term sitting may include back pain, neck pain, and the weakening of muscles.
There are multiple ways to combat this- from sitting on yoga balls to running on a treadmill desk. But realistically, how practical, applicable, and effective are these methods? Employers don’t want workers injuring themselves by losing balance, or worker’s being so distracted by power walking or running that their work becomes neglected or delayed.
Here’s where we introduce the Uplifter: the practical, convenient solution to increasing health and productivity in the workspace. The portable desk riser allows users to switch between sitting and standing, as well as raising their screen to eye-height; therefore increasing ergonomic positioning. The Uplifter works in different work environments and allows for a simplistic yet extremely efficient solution in the workplace setting.
