Frequently asked questions (FAQ's)

  1. How long should one stand for ?
    Ideally one should not sit for more than 1 hour at a time. One should then stand for as long as it is comfortable, starting with 30 minutes and gradually increasing this until one is tired of standing.
  2. How long does it take to get fully accustomed to using the Ponti stand ?
    It can take between 3 – 10 days of getting used to working while standing. During this time, one may experience some lower back and leg muscle ache. This is normal, as these muscles need to strengthen accordingly. This eventually improves and goes away.
  3. What if I don’t like using it after trying it for several days ?
    The Ponti stand comes with a 60 day return policy for a full refund. Please see the returns policy for details.
  4. Will it help me lose weight ?
    The Ponti stand helps to increase your metabolism, and exercise muscles you wouldn’t normally use as much whilst at work. It also helps reduce mid section fat, as well as fat accumulated around internal organs. This assists in weight loss.
