Jon Paulsen Interviewed in Forbes!

Posted by Human Solution on Apr 9th 2015

The UPLIFT Desk isn't just sturdy and reliable; it also features a design that emphasizes healthy posture and pain reduction! That's no accident: every UPLIFT Desk was designed by our CEO, Jon Paulsen. Jon is a Certified Professional Ergonomist with a master's degree in Mechanical Engineering and decades of industry experience under his belt before starting our company. Having spent so much time immersed in the world of sit-stand ergonomics, it makes perfect sense that when Forbes needed an expert, they came to Jon! The result is a fascinating interview on the health advantages of switching to an adjustable-height desk! Here's an except:

Rodger Dean Duncan: You’re obviously a proponent of sit-stand office arrangements because you created the UPLIFT Desk. What are the research findings on the benefits of this kind of furniture?

Jon Paulsen: When it comes to the benefits of using a sit-stand desk, the science is in. Dozens of peer-reviewed studies demonstrate the significant health benefits of changing positions, and the positive effect that movement (blood flow, etc.) has on our overall physical comfort and health. For example, a 2011 study by the Centers for Disease Control noted a 54 percent decrease in musculoskeletal pain among workers who alternated from sitting to standing throughout the day.

You can read the whole interview here, where Jon goes further into the health and productivity benefits and illuminates what may be behind the recent surge in interest in ergonomics. With a full height-adjustable desk starting at $699 and shipping out the next business day, there's never been a better time for you to make the switch to standing at work.
