Posture 2: THE STAND

Taking a stand during office work is a good work habit as it improves our entire body posture, increases blood flow, increases alertness and helps to stay fresh. In addition, standing will also prevent our upper body from hunching our shoulders forward to do our work. With the support of height adjustable table, the stand setup is easy achieved. Just set the table surface to your standing elbow height, and you are set to work.

Posture 3: THE 120° SITTING

Another alternative sitting posture that is healthy to our body is when the angle between the spine and thigh is 120° (like riding a horse). Sitting at 120° makes our spine automatically in the upright position and there is no need for lumbar support. Addition advantages of 120° sitting, it prevents us from hunching our shoulders forward to do our work and helps us to stand up with ease. Changing of postures from 120° sitting to standing is easy, creating more body movements during work.

The Liveable Office concept allows the 120° sitting position with the support of height adjustable table, and sit-to-stand chair or lean stool. Our sit-to-stand chair comes with waterfall front seat edge that can support 120° sitting. The waterfall front seat is smooth enough to provide a comfortable sitting and the chair will not be sliding backward. When you are in 120° sitting position, set the table surface to your elbow height, place your stuffs closer to front edge of the table and avoid hunching forward to work.
