By this point, we all know the benefits of adding standing to our workday. You burn extra calories, practice better posture, and reduce your risk of repetitive stress injuries. At the same time, standing has a tendency to wake you up and increase blood flow, which is great for productivity. Perhaps most importantly, it breaks the patterns that can lead to life threatening injuries like Deep Vein Thrombosis.
That last one was my driving force for investing into standing desks in the first place (horror stories of people who sat too much literally dropping dead) but after working with one for so long, and then being forced to go without it, I can tell acutely how important it’s become to my day. When I feel like I’ve been sitting for too long, I simply press “3” and can shift to standing without missing a beat. This is also great if I need to move around the room, like when I’m testing a piece of gear and bouncing back to my computer to take notes for my review work. The versatility of a standing desk is nothing short of freeing once you get in the habit of utilizing it.
The only downside is that the color selection is currently limited to white or black. iMovR plans to expand this in the future, however, and has some interesting plans for desk customization it’s not prepared to discuss publicly yet. Typically, I would take this with a grain of salt, but the company is one of the very few in the U.S. that actually owns its own production line and is uniquely positioned to update its offerings throughout production.
