There has been an increase in awareness recently about the negative aspects of sitting for long periods of time. Even Tim Cook, CEO of Apple, chimed in this week saying that “sitting is the new cancer”. While that statement has sparked a renewed conversation, studies have shown for years that spending more of your day standing could reduce the risk of obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and cancer.
This holds especially true for operators in a command and control room environment, where shifts can average 12 hours and operators remain seated for extended periods of time.
At Constant, we offer console and workstation solutions that allow for operator flexibility while maintaining the highest levels of ergonomics.
Our sit-stand console solutions enable operators to quickly and easily adjust from a seated configuration to standing, while maintaining sight lines to monitors and access to keyboards and other peripheral devices.
If you are considering implementing sit/stand consoles or workstations into your network, security, digital/social media, or emergency operations center, please contact us today so that we can develop a detailed design solution tailored to your needs.
