Living on 'The Edge' when it comes to your desk
Rick tries the new "The Edge" kneeling desk.
We know that “sitting disease” leads to metabolic syndrome and diabetes. And we also know, based on numerous scientific research studies, that sitting disease leads to an increased risk of cancer. In fact, according to Mayo Clinic, you can extend your life expectancy by two years just by "changing it up" on how you sit each day. Originally launched on Kickstarter, The Edge Desk is the first desk-chair and easel all in one. No hours of assembly and hundreds of parts to manage, The Edge comes fully assembled right out of the box. Set up takes less than a minute and the ergonomic design provides for the most comfortable, positive and productive work experience you’ve ever had. The patent-pending kneeling desk puts your back in control and in a comfort first position removing pressure. Your work can be fun and a long day of work, good for your body.
The Edge Desk is the first kneeling desk ever created and is thought of as the “Most comfortable desk for productivity."
Kneeling desks improve posture, reduce lumbar pressure and lower back pain while increasing blood circulation. The benefits of ergonomic desks echo similar results including an improved level of comfort, better posture and ultimately more productivity for the user.
Unique to The Edge ergonomic kneeling chair and adjustable desk, its versatility lets you find your perfect comfortable working position without the back strain. It also comes fully assembled and can be deployed in under 10 seconds. When you fold up, to around 6 inches. The footprint of the Edge Desk also allows for a wide range of uses and users from students and business professionals to artists, designers and it will fit just about anywhere. Tony Maloney, a trainer and exercise physiologist at the National Institute for Fitness and Sport in Indianapolis, shared his best tips for slimming down this summer with Business Insider and it included "kneeling" at your desk. Maloney says that desk workers change things up at least once every hour, and do their work in a combination of positions throughout the day: sitting, standing, and even kneeling at their desks. He also lobbies for people to park far away in parking lots, and always take the stairs, no matter what floor they live or work on.
The Edge was built for easy storage and transportation and makes a great graduation or back-to-school present at this time of the year. I'm impressed by the padded cushions that provide comfortable support and design encourages proper upright sitting instead of the hunching posture typically associated with fatigue and lower back pain. Designed to accommodate to the user's ideal comfort level, the Edge Desk's height, angle and tilt are adjustable to suit individual body size and desk preferences. The white work surface can swivel between landscape and portrait orientation as desired. All for $399.
As someone that feels aches and pains each day as an athlete, The Edge helps keep much of the discomfort at bay.
