The Allcam Desks, as you’ve heard on the radio, are height adjustable sit-stand desks offering you the option to stand up or sit down, effectively reducing the sitting hours, To invest in an Allcam Desk is an investment in your own health. There are many different versions of Allcam Desks, for home working professionals, single-motor standing desks with top might be the best option, like the Allcam ED20, or EDF21+12, for companies and office dealers, the more suitable version might be the EDF12D dual-motor desk, or the EDF13T triple-motor radial desk. For large open-plan offices, the EDF14Q and EDF34Q quad-motor back-to-back desks are popular. There is also a standing meeting desk – the EDF35TM.
But why should you bother if your desk is height adjustable or not? You may have heard the phrase, “Sitting is the new smoking.” Research suggests that sitting for an extended period of time can be detrimental to both mental and physical health. One Australian study involving over 220,000 adults of 45 years or older found that those people who sat more than 11 hours a day saw a 40% greater chance of dying within three years when compared to those who sat for fewer than 4 hours a day, regardless of their physical activity when not sitting.
What are the types of height-adjustable standing desks available in the market? There are 3 mains types: 1. The simplest ones are standing desk converters, like the Allcam GSS061 series. These simply sit on top of your existing desk. But they occupy a big portion of your desk space, and they does not work as well as the full-featured standing desks. 2. The best solution is electric sit-stand desks liked the Allcam ED20 smart desk and ED199G gaming desk. You can easily change from sitting to standing in a single click, and often they also come with alert timers. 3. The middle solution is gas-spring powered sit-stand desks like our GS03 gas-powered sit-stand desk. They are full-featured standing desks but much cheaper than the electric ones. Many schools prefer this type because they do not require electricity to work, minimizing risks to young children.
