In the face of growing concerns around our modern, sedentary lifestyles, KI’s new ToggleSE desk offers a solution at the touch of a button. ToggleSE's simple, electronic height adjustment transforms an individual’s workspace within seconds, allowing them to sit or stand at their desk as they see fit. Employees at Amazon, LinkedIn and Facebook are already benefiting from recent installations of ToggleSE desks in their European and US offices.
ToggleSE is affordable, stable, quiet and easy to use. The strong T-base design and absence of a low-hanging crossbar allow the table to be used from both sides, promoting user comfort and enhancing collaboration. Its wide-ranging height adjustment from 660mm to a maximum height of 1320mm ensures it complies with the most stringent British & European Standard BS EN 527-1.
“Prolonged sitting time in the workplace is an adverse health risk and compromises productivity”
Numerous global studies have supported wide media coverage warning against the perils of ‘over-sitting’, and they make a compelling case. Between 50 and 70 percent of the average British adult’s life in seated activities such as driving, working at a desk and watching television. This is cumulatively increasing the risk of obesity, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and back problems.
By allowing employees to vary their posture several times throughout the day, KI’s ToggleSE desk encourages constant and subtle muscle activity, a factor in combatting an overly sedentary lifestyle according to these studies. In addition to these health benefits, some studies have suggested that standing desks also lead to increased productivity, greater alertness, and higher energy levels.
