StanData encourages users to stand more through transition reminders and helps individuals and businesses get the most of their investment.
Over 90% of sit-stand desk users aren’t aware of how often they should transition from sitting to standing throughout the day and as little as 7% of users use their sit-stand desks after three months. Using software-based reminders such as StanData increased standing rates and desk usage by 85%.
Why does it matter?
Obesity rates and the incidence of type 2 diabetes are at all-time highs, largely because of our sedentary lifestyles. Therefore, movement within the office has become a priority. But, productivity typically suffers when employees are not at their desk, making sit-stand workstations a great solution to improve movement and productivity. As a result, a proliferation of sit-stand devices has flooded the marketplace.
Unfortunately, these workstations have not necessarily improved employee health or posture and leave employers questioning whether the investment is worthwhile.

Benefits of properly deployed sit-stand workstations
Simply standing instead of sitting is not a panacea. It has been shown that too much standing can be equally as harmful as too much sitting. Frequent postural transitions from sitting to standing and vice versa is the key to maximizing the health benefit of a sit-stand device, by both reducing levels of sedentarism and by minimizing the risk of Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSDs).
