When it comes to work and school, whether you work in a office or at home, we find that a lot of the time we spend either doing class work or our day to day work is spent at our desks. The thing is, when we have a long day of work that is done on our computers, we find that we are sitting for the majority of the time. This can then lead to a stiff back, stiff knees, poor posture, headaches from looking down at monitors, and eventually lead to other problems along the way which includes increased risk for heart attacks, elevated blood pressure and more. And like many who work from home and who also go to school full time from home, I have found that in order to keep going as well as avoid issues from poor posture and sitting for most of the day, that I need to stand while working. So when I was sent the Lotus™ Sit-Stand Workstation from Fellowes to review, I was excited to start using it and also see the difference that it can make when I use it for both work and school!
With the Lotus™ Sit-Stand Workstation, I get a versatile desk that I can place on the top of the desk or table I am using, and adjust as needed. The adjustments are simple to do, by just lifting and using one of the 22 height settings that are available, which gives me the options to get the correct height that I might need. And when used correctly, the Lotus Workstation gives me the relief my back and neck might be needing, from sitting to standing, and back again which allows me to take a stand against sitting!
Along with the height adjustments, I like that I can place my monitor on the top of the stand along with any other items such as my pens, use the next level for my phone, books and paperwork, then the keyboard platform for my keyboard and mouse. Allowing me to work on improving my posture and overall health, but also have a work station that is convenient for me to use. Which in all makes the Lotus™ Sit-Stand Workstation from Fellowes a great product to have in any office, home office or work space to help when it comes to improving posture and health while working.
Product received, thank you to Fellowes as well as the PR for supplying me with a product for this review, all opinions are my own.
That's a great looking work station! I've heard about the benefits of standing while working. I'd like to give it a try!
I have always wanted a standing desk and I have been seeing more of them. I would love this for my computer area and have to look into it.twinkle at optonline dot net
I found the infographic very interesting. Loved how it showed Standing Desk users over the years.
