How does sedentary work affect our health?

Office work has always been a sedentary job, and that is its biggest drawback. The position in which you spend 8 hours every day at your desk – even on an ergonomic chair – is not natural, healthy or convenient for the human body. Long-lasting sitting puts strain on the spine (especially in its lumbar section), impairs the correct circulation and causes muscle pain. The long-term consequences of this state of affairs include bone and joint degeneration, varicose veins, haemorrhoids, etc. Combined with a lack of exercise also outside your working hours, sedentary work usually results in obesity in the end as well. That is not all, however. Working seated for many hours makes us feel lazy, and in some people it even causes fatigue and sleepiness. Over time the motivation and dynamics of work decreases. It turns out that not only the body but also the human mind needs to change its position in order to remain in good shape. Standing at your desk or at least getting up from it every now and then, even for a few minutes, can really make a difference.

HushWork.sit&stand – a convenient solution for working on your feet and on a chair

The hushWork.sit&stand booth, which is a kind of focus room for an office worker, allows him or her not only to achieve the right level of concentration on the task, but also to take care of their health. The enclosure offers, in addition to optimal soundproofing, a comfortable height-adjustable desk that allows you to work flexibly in different positions. 

Desk adjustable in 2 seconds

The adjustment of the sit-stand desk height is easy, smooth and fast. In just two seconds, you can set the tabletop at the desired height (from 670 to 1250 mm) without even interrupting your work. The desk therefore allows you to work ergonomically both on your feet and on a chair (when your legs get tired) or in an intermediate position, for example using a barstool. For the sake of health, it is advisable to change the position of the body at the desk as often as possible and to try to ensure that the proportions of sitting and standing at the desk are, let’s say, balanced at first, and ultimately that working in a standing position dominates. It is more natural for the spine, better for blood circulation and improves efficiency.

The hushWork.sit&stand is not only about ergonomics in the form of a desk that fits perfectly into the needs of the worker, but also about optimum acoustics inside, which allows the desired concentration to be achieved. While, as a standard, the open space has a noise level comparable to that of a vacuum cleaner or a loud TV, sounds muffled by up to several tens of decibels can be heard in the booth (set in the very centre of the noise). The user of the hushWork.sit&stand working inside with the door closed will hear a loud fire alarm, but all the rest of the annoying sounds are brought down to the level of a stream or birds singing, and at the same time the working conditions are great, even when it comes to the most difficult analytical tasks. The comfort of working in a soundproof enclosure is also affected by the fact that the user is not heard outside – so he or she can freely make a difficult or confidential phone call or participate in a conference call, for example. They maintain their privacy and do not disturb others. This is because the sounds that come out of the booth are practically “unnoticeable” by the people around the room and resemble a whisper.
