More than 50% of the population has felt the mental and physical effects of the global pandemic since 2020. Now that new variants of Coronavirus such as the Delta and Lambda variants affect more people, there is a significant threat to the health of everyone, especially the young ones. 

On that note, parents like you must proactively protect your family, especially children, from the threat of the virus this 2021. One of the ways is to make yourself and your child ergonomically protected. With Flexispot (the home of the reliable standing desk, sit-stand desks, stand-up desks, and ergonomic chairs), you could ensure that your child would not experience the biomechanical pain that weakens the immune system. 

The Reason Musculoskeletal Pain May Weaken the Immune System

As more people do sedentary activities, the number of people who lose the chance to do physical activities increases. One of the examples of these activities that might lead to a sedentary lifestyle are:

  • Repetitive tasks at work that last for hours: 

Working for more than 6 hours without changing one's tasks could be detrimental to the body. This habit is more dangerous for children because they are also prone to biomechanical pain that can get severe in the long run. 

  • Lesser physical activities

The transition from the face-to-face learning system to the online class had caused a drop in the number of students who engage in physical activities. As different states and cities implemented restrictions, adults, and children had limited opportunities to move around and add more physical activities. 

  • Incorrect body posture:

As more children have experienced the shift from face-to-face learning to web-based learning, they have been exposed to incorrect ergonomics, making them have incorrect body posture.

Indeed. When your child uses the non-ergonomic equipment pieces in your home, they wouldn't be able to have the protection they deserve. 

As a result, they may stick to a cycle of repetitive pain and illnesses because biomechanical pain could start from stress and fatigue. These may lead to severe body pain that could increase the production of harmful hormones such as Cortisol. 

In that case, Flexispot is here to help you protect your child against the musculoskeletal disorder that may affect your child's immune system too. However, before these products from Flexispot would not work unless you provide first an ergonomically protected area for your child. There are three ways to do it effectively. 

Ergonomically-Protecting Your Child in 3 Ways

Height Adjustable Ergonomic Study Desk

a. Purchase Products with Height Adjustability

Flexispot is known for standing desks and ergonomic chairs that have superb height adjustability. They created these products to ensure that your child would not stoop his posture and actively change positions when working on his study table. 

Height Adjustable Ergonomic Study Desk is an example of these products. You have the basic keypads that do not simply give out an ordinary function. With a click on the up and down keys, your child could enjoy sitting or standing while doing his homework; you may ensure that he would not feel the back pain at all. 

They engineered it with an excellent lifting capacity of 154lbs and a desk foot that supports the 2 stage- legs. What's more amazing about this product is the single motor lifting system gives more speed and stability to this standing desk. 

Meanwhile, Flexispot also creates a desk bike that is a fitness chair at the same time. A great mate for the Height Adjustable Ergonomic Study Desk because its height adjustability does not hinder the superb functionality of the pedals and resistance dials. Instead, these all function in perfect synchronicity to achieve the ergonomic position suitable for your child. This piece of equipment is the Sit2Go 2in1 Fitness Chair. This product is a desk bike with a seating area that you can adjust well to an appropriate height (not so tall) for your child. Hence, when your child uses both of these ergonomic pieces, you may ensure that he could keep his movements more active. 

Anti-Fatigue Mat DM1

b. Choose an Anti-Fatigue Mat

Letting your child stand while standing could sometimes be tiring for them, especially if they don't have the patience to stay in that position for a long time. In that case, the Flexispot Ergonomic Anti-Fatigue Mat DM1 is the answer. 

This product is an anti-fatigue mat with multiple massage points, so when your child stands here, his blood will continue flowing actively, and he will have a more relaxed mind. He might notice that he has done more exercises because of the kid's invigoration, plus he could get the protection against leg cramps and muscle strain that are common when a person stands for more than 30 minutes. Activities like this are great in helping the child solving number problems or reading some long passages. 

L-Shaped Standing Desk E1L

c. Avoid Non-Ergonomic Tables 

Height Adjustable Drafting Table ED1B and L-Shaped Standing Desk E1L could help you on that matter. Flexispot has created these desks that could protect your child from accidents or injuries because of falling objects from the table surface. The non-ergonomic equipment exposes your child to injuries. At times, non-ergonomic tables quickly get damaged. These products could be dangerous, especially if the product itself would get broken in front of your child. So, to protect your child from any kinds of injuries, try these tables from Flexispot

The Flexispot Advantage

These products' height adjustability, anti-stress, and anti-collision features could help protect your child from mental stress and physical pain that he might get exposed to should you not choose the ergonomic pieces for him. Compared to the non-ergonomic equipment, the products mentioned with the best materials and spare parts make them above and beyond the competition. That is why choosing Flexispot is the best choice for a consumer like you.
