  • Height adjustable sit-stand solutions for your work space

    I am sure you have heard it - sitting is the new smoking! 2016 is the year to start standing at work. Switching between seating and standing postures throughout the day is not only good for energy and productivity but for overall health too: studies have shown regular standing can burn calories and have a positive impact on well being, and can prevent everything from heart disease to high blood pressure.

    A height-adjustable desk, a high quality chair, and an adjustable keyboard tray and monitor arm are all essential components of an ergonomic office, and Humanscale makes some of the best ergonomic products around. GRShop offers the full range of Humanscale products.

Combined with an ergonomic chair such as the Aeron Chair or one of the Eames Executive Chairs, it gives you a full range of supported movement to help you stay more active and healthier while you work.
