Varidesk

  • Written by Kieran Elsby


Varidesk offers different model offers that suit everyone's working style, habits and shape. Standing desks help burn up to 50 calories per hour, when used for 4 hours per working day, that's 1,000 calories per week, or 48,000-52,000, which is the same calories burnt as running over 18 marathons!

Varidesk offer a range of desks to suit everyone. Varidesk’s sit-to-stand desks allow you to go from sitting to standing throughout the day, quickly and easily. Using a standing desk can help you benefit from lower cholesterol, blood pressure and blood sugar, whilst helping reduce and prevent pains from sitting all day. The desk lifts in under 3 seconds and is easy to do. It has an app which reminds you to stand through the day and can be custom set.

Weight Loss

Most people don’t realise that sitting at a desk all day can negatively affect your weight. On average offices workers put on over 8lbs in their first year of work, and also sit for around 16+ hours a day including commuting and watching television at home.

Standing desks help to burn calories. Sitting for the full day can significantly slow your metabolic rate and can negate any workouts you do get in that day. Getting your blood flowing and increasing your metabolism is only a good thing.

Reduced Back Pain

Back pain often occurs from prolonged inactivity and sitting. One study has found that switching between sitting and standing throughout the workday can lead to a 54% reduction in neck and back pain. Also, 95% of standing desk users felt some relief from lower back pain within 15 days.

Brain Health

Using a standing desk can increase productivity by 46%, a study by Texas A&M shows that continued utilisation of the stand-biased desks was associated with significant improvements in executive function and working memory capabilities. Making the decision to reduce occupational sitting time may have mental health benefits. This includes anxiety, depression, memory loss and any feeling associated with being overwhelmed and causes you to just not be yourself. Work smarter, not harder.

Heart Health

Your heart needs exercise, the right foods and spending less time sitting and more time standing lowers blood sugar, cholesterol and weight, which means a lower risk of heart disease.

Prices start from just $250 from AU.Varidesk.com
