These days, everyone is talking about the downsides of a sedentary lifestyle, including the possibility that sitting for more than three hours a day can decrease your life expectancy by up to two years. Everyone’s looking for a solution to this process: more exercise; standing desks; desks that can be raised to allow for standing part of the time and be left in the “sitting” position to allow for some rest. According to this source, however, the best desks aren’t the ones that you have to move yourself in order to shift to the “standing” part of the day.
Who would have thought it: a desk that determines whether you should be sitting or standing based on your caloric consumption, your exercise levels, and how long you’ve been sitting. Smart desks can even be taught to shift in smaller intervals, forcing you to change your position without breaking your concentration. By doing it for you, Boraie Development says that with no need for you to manually adjust the height of the desk, these smart desks create an ideal situation where you are forced to change position whether you’re ready to or not. No excuses for these desks. “I’m kind of tired.” “I’m in the middle of a project. I’ll move in a minute.” “I’m on a call.” The smart desk doesn’t care about your excuses. It cares about your health.
