Learning from home
Your child's work area
Your child's workspace at home is becoming more important all the time. With COVID-19 at full force in the United States, reopening schools to full capacity in the fall is looking like a far off dream. Before the pandemic, many students were already doing a large amount of homework on their home computers. Now, their home computer could become the only way to do their schoolwork.
How Does sitting all day affect your child's health?
Kids spend a lot of time sitting in front of their computers or devices. And as students learn from home, their screen time will increase and their lifestyle will become more sedentary.
However, because we were made to move, sitting all day every day can result in a higher risk of health problems. These include but are not limited to obesity, diabetes, and many other chronic health issues. Additionally, children can experience pain, fatigue, and even symptoms of depression when they don't move around enough throughout the day, just like adults.
The Desk that grows with you
Although it's not particularly challenging to find a desk small enough for an elementary schooler, what happens when they get a bit bigger and grow out of it? As with many things you buy for your child, you want their desk to grow with them.
Adjustable desks are a fantastic solution and have the versatility to support even the antsiest students. Instead of sitting down to watch a lecture or class, students of all ages can raise their desk, stand up and move around, while still being able to view their screen at an appropriate height.
Not only can this have positive results physically, moving and transitioning can improve focus and productivity and decrease the risk of many health issues associated with a sedentary lifestyle.
Ergonomic workspaces are just as important for children and students as for working adults, especially when they are learning part- or full-time from home. And while it can be challenging to fit a desk in a small space like a bedroom or dorm room, there are ergonomic sit-stand desks that can fit in an area as small as three by four feet.
BUILT-IN TECHNOLOGY TO ASSIST CHILDREN
Each LifeDesk comes with patented wellness technology, powered by StanData, that can remind children to transition between sitting and standing and help ensure proper posture with ergonomically-correct settings for both sitting and standing positions.
PERFECT FOR REMOTE WORKERS, TOO
More and more workplaces are allowing employees to work from home. In fact, nearly half of working Americans work from home occasionally, and, according to a LinkedIn survey, approximately 80% of workers want to work from home at least one day per week. A key ingredient to a successful WAH program is a workstation that provides proper ergonomics which promotes the health & wellness of the team members.
With a height range of 22" to 48", the SmartLegs 1 from LifeDesk is perfect for adults of any stature.
