Before and After with Varidesk


We recently received an update from one of our customers in Tauranga

Emma works @ a Law firm and was so proud of her new workspace she sent through a before and after snap. As you can see from her pictures she was making do with a few paper boxes but needed an easier way to transition from standing back to sitting. We got in touch with her to find out a bit more info so that we could share her experiences with others considering a sit/stand desk. If you've recently made the change to a sit/stand desk we'd love to here about it too: contact@varidesk.co.nz

Why did you decide to get a standing desk

I damaged my tailbone a couple of years ago and it has never come right. After lots of physio and chiropractor treatments, it was recommend that I looked into a stand up desk for work.

How much time are you standing per day

On average I try and stand for around 5 hours out of an 8 ½ hour day.

How is it going? Are you noticing any differences in comfort, focus, productivity?

Before the stand up desk, my back was quite twisted, as I had to twist to the left a lot. This caused a lot of back pain, which then put further pressure on my tailbone. The stand up desk has not only helped with my tailbone injury, but also my back, as I now have room to lean forward and write messages or notes if required and I no longer need to twist to the left any where near as much. My body in general is a lot more comfortable and I have noticed that I am able to concentrate better as a result.

How did you hear about Varidesk?

Another work colleague had a back issue and she was given a Varidesk to assist her, it was exactly what I had been looking for.

I notice you also ordered the anti-fatigue mat, thoughts on this one?

Before I found the Varidesk, I had been using boxes on my desk when I needed to stand. My feet ached a lot and I found I couldn’t stand for as long as I can now. The anti-fatigue mat, has made a huge difference in comfort and I don’t find myself standing firmly on both legs and not bouncing from one hip to the other.

Anything else you’d like to share?

This has been a great improvement to my work station, this is where I am most of the time and I think it is important to be comfortable, to enable you to get on with your day. Standing more every day has a lot of benefits and I am already feeling the results.
