Dallas, TX (May 20, 2014)
If you can’t stand the thought of sitting all day at your desk (especially since doctors everywhere have said that “sitting is the new smoking”), an innovative solution is here from those award-winning folks at VARIDESK (www.varidesk.com), whose adjustable, affordable standing desks have started a “standing revolution” in the U.S., Canada and Europe.
Designed for fitness-conscious individuals and forward-thinking companies, the new VARIDESK PRO PLUS sits on top of your existing desk, allowing you to switch from a seated to standing position in just 3 seconds, adjusts to any user’s height, and is the perfect size for work stations with dual monitors or docking stations. Its easy-to-use features include a new spring-assisted lifting keyboard tray ensuring ergonomic comfort for your arms and shoulders whether sitting or standing, a new work surface size (36” x 27”), and a companion app that gives you sit and stand alerts.
“While the health risks of sitting all day have been well documented,” said Jason McCann, President of Varidesk’s parent company, Gemmy Industries, “ it’s also been established that people’s energy and productivity significantly improve by standing while working.”
“Indeed, such famous figures as Charles Dickens, Thomas Jefferson, Winston Churchill and Ernest Hemingway all worked at their own do-it-yourself standing desks, which says something about creativity,” added McCann, “so now is the time to declare your own independence from sitting and join the standing revolution.”
