A standing desk can help you avoid the health risks of sitting at a desk all day and also burn more calories while you’re at it. This calorie-burn calculator from Just Stand reveals just how many extra calories.
Provided by ergonomic product company Ergotron, the calculator requires just your weight and the amount of time you spend working (i.e. sitting). The difference in calorie-burn from using a standing desk can really add up (and when you’re trying to keep the calories off, every bit counts). Be sure to adjust the amount of time in the calculator to account for breaks you usually take from sitting — which you’d also take from standing.
Ergotron’s main site also has tools like the Workstation Installation Tool to help you find the optimum measurements for your seated or standing desk, so whichever method you choose you can be healthier while working.
