As a 9 – 5 staff, your daily work routine might look like this: work starts, everything goes well, lunchtime arrives, then the dreaded food coma hits and the rest of the day passes in a daze. But that’s not all – back and shoulder aches and the occasional attack of pins and needles are other problems that come with the sedentary life as well.

These nifty inventions allow you to add some much-needed movement into your life, by simply adjusting them from seated to standing positions. Here are some of the best standing desks and converters that you can buy online.
