Sit-Stand Work Stations
In June 2013, the American Medical association (AMA) adopted a policy that recognized the risks of prolonged sitting, especially at workplaces.
Studies have shown that in today's workplaces, employees end up spending more than half of their work day sitting, leading to health issues like cardiovascular diseases, obesity and diabetes.
As a result the AMA has urged the employers to offer alternatives to employees in the form of Standing Desks or Sit-stand Workstations.
A Center for Disease Control (CDC) study showed that products like height adjustable desks reduced sitting time by 66 minutes per day and these gains were negated within two weeks of removal of these products.
