Stand more, sit less.
NeckDoctor, the original ergonomic monitor arm company launches two unique new products in the region. NeckDoctor for Laptops, the Portable Ergonomic Laptop Stand Desk Workstation, and NeckDoctor for Laptops-L, the Height Adjustable Ergonomic Laptop Standing Desk Workstation offering high-quality solutions for office and home to prevent improper sitting postures that strain the muscles and connecting tissues around the neck, head, back, spine and shoulder.
Founder Tarun K. Balani, & CEO – NeckDoctor, “Sedentariness begins with redesigning our workspace and rethinking how we function within that space. Thus, the first step toward solving the sit or stand dilemma is to develop a healthy, balanced approach, combining periods of seated work with periods of standing work through the introduction of a sit-stand paradigm with the presence of sit-stand workstations. NeckDoctor allows the user to easily switch between seated work and standing work while remaining at the same desk. Encouraging users to stand more and sit less helps prevent an inactive lifestyle giving a boost in energy, mood, and sleep quality that comes from increased activity.”
The average adult sits 6.5 hours a day. For teens, it’s higher at eight hours a day.
The absence of practicing ergonomics can damage our wellbeing. Sitting all day in office results in dreadful illnesses caused by a sedentary lifestyle such as obesity, diabetes, heart ailments, strained neck, and sore shoulders. Employees who suffer from consistent pain and health issues result in inefficiency at work, loss of hours, and productivity which affects organizational growth and revenue in the long term. Alternating between seated work and standing work has been shown to benefit both human health and worker productivity. Studies have shown that varying periods of sitting work with periods of standing work helps measurably reduce pain and fatigue complaints in the work environment.
“Everyone is looking for a solution and a promise, we offer both. We understand the importance and future of ergonomics in a world where technology has become a way of life. The human body and improving your workplace posture naturally is our prime focus. With the rise in laptop usage, the use of technology extends beyond the office with working from home trending in these pandemic times. Prolonged use and an improper posture are harmful to the spine. The human body needs ergonomic solutions and products that are pain relief, natural, medicine-free, doctor free and even surgery-free.”
Research shows that standing burned an extra 0.15 calories per minute, on average, compared with sitting. Men burned an extra 0.2 calories per minute while standing, compared with sitting, which was twice as much as women, who burned an extra 0.1 calories per minute while standing, compared with sitting. Men burn more calories per minute because they typically have more muscle mass than women.
The Sit and Stand workstations features are unique such as Gas spring hydraulic mechanism, pneumatic height-adjustable, work surface made with durable, fire, heat resistant, and virtually unbreakable melamine particle with TSCA Title VI compliant certification unlike any other product in the market with a solid steel frame body. All products are fully certified and strength tested. NeckDoctor for Laptops retails at SAR 699 + VAT while NeckDoctor for Laptops-L is at SAR 1,299 + VAT.
