Akron, Ohio (PRWEB) October 23, 2013
In conjunction with the debut of a new desk just for women, StandUpDesks.com, leading manufacturer of carefully crafted stand up desks, alerts women of the increased health risks they experience daily from sitting desks. Studies show that women specifically are at greater risks than men when sitting at work all day.
StandUpDesks.com announces a new cottage-inspired standing desk that's perfect for Crafters & Scrapbooking. This elegant design features an adjustable height and shelf that's perfect for creative projects. Like all StandUpDesk.com furniture, this desk can be custom designed to match any home décor.
According to The Academy of Nutrition and Diabetes women who spend four to seven hours per day sitting are more likely than men to show early signs of type 2 diabetes. In general women are more sedentary than men, this is believed to be a significant factor in the health risks they experience. However the same study found that even women who engage in physical activity after sedentary days are just as likely to show signs of type 2 diabetes.
It is clear that women have a predisposition to suffering from sedentary lifestyles, however many women are unaware of this and do not take action to protect themselves against health risks associated with inactive living, including: obesity, heart disease, diabetes, and early death. Canadian researchers show the longer time spent sitting per day increases the likelihood of early death.
One answer to counteracting sedentary lifestyles that many have become accustomed to is to stand. Standing desks are a great option to protect women against potential neck, back and shoulder pains. The desks also help maintain great posture and soothe pains for those experiencing them.
Beyond their health benefits, stand up desks serve as great accent pieces throughout the home. StandUpDesks.com owner Vicki Gattuso explains, “How a woman and her family can benefit from a stand up desk is not just for the office! So many women today work from home and a stand up desk can be a gorgeous accessory in the home. The lovely desks are completely functional and take up less space than standard desks. Some clients have even sized and styled them for their kitchens.”
Vicki continues, “We have placed three desks in the White House and would love to put many more in homes across the country. Very soon, you’ll see one of desks on a very popular Netflix show. Stand up desks have been used by female judges and attorneys for years but it's time to get the word out. Most women think a stand up desk is ugly and expensive, nothing could be further from the truth. We offer a huge variety of woods, stains and leathers and customized care for all buyers. Our dedicated support team guides each customer into a desk that specifically fits their body and lifestyle.”
All of StandUpDesks.com’s custom desks are made in the USA and are built to order. To learn more about StandUpDesks.com please visit their website.
