Innovative office furniture
Here at Radius Office we stock a wide range of Ergotron’s sit-stand desk mounts and workstations. Ergotron are probably best known for their range of mounts and sit-stand workstations and there are many proven benefits to using a sit-stand desk.

Promoting a healthy working environment
As mentioned earlier, Ergotron launched Juststand.org in 2010 to raise awareness of the dangers of excessive sitting and the sedentary lifestyle. This website provides an up-to-date resource for employers and employees so they can better understand the dangers of sitting all day at work. It also shows people that ergonomic office furniture and in particular sit-stand workstations are affordable and are here to stay.
Ergotron developed sit-stand workstations in 2009 in a bid to combat the growing complaints of neck and back pain from their own employees. More and more companies are now incorporating sit-stand desks into their office designs as a result of the greater awareness of the issues caused by employees sitting for long hours at their desks. Businesses recognise they can save money and have more productive employees if they invest in cost-effective ergonomic office furniture. By looking after their employees and providing comfortable and well-designed chairs and desks, they can cut down on the number of sick days taken through aches and pains and other medical complaints. It also features useful tools like the calorie burn calculator and the sitting time calculator, along with videos and infographics. It is a site worth checking out – there is loads of useful information on there aimed at everyone from schools to large businesses.
If you’re ever in Minnesota, Ergotron welcomes visitors to their headquarters, or you can catch them at a number of trade fairs. It is definitely a brand worth checking out and keeping track of because you never know what they are going to invent next. They are a company pushing the boundaries of office furniture and one of the leaders of a growing group of office furniture designers ensuring office-workers don’t have to sit in uncomfortable silence all day.
