Workers need tools to do their jobs and the way they use these tools shapes the work they do. To reduce stress and enhance performance, tools should be able to adapt to a wide range of needs. Products that hinder or slow down workers have a negative effect on morale and performance. Four out of five office workers want to have access to ergonomic furniture1, e.g. sit-stand desks, which is important to consider, as sitting for extended periods of time increases the risk of disease. Exercise outside of work does not eliminate these health risks - it’s how workers spend their time at work that is important for wellbeing and profitability2.  Research shows that standing for two and a half hours burns 350 calories per day3 and that standing instead of sitting leads to 10% more productivity4.
