We’ve been doing quite a few commercial projects lately that have required adjustable height desks and tables for their employees, and we’ve decided to share some of these products we have found with you.
The use of computers and rapidly changing technology in the modern workplace has greatly increased the need for ergonomics. Desks, chairs, monitors, keyboards and lighting all need to be assessed when creating a workspace, whether it is at the office or at home.
Ergonomics also takes into account the need for movement throughout the day. Office furniture has traditionally encouraged stiff, fixed postures and little movement. However, a balance between sitting and standing, which can be aided with a height-adjustable desk, is a proven way to combat the effects of sedentary workplace behavior.
Furniture companies are now evolving their lines to include wood casegoods that have the ability to be height adjustable. We are now seeing entire L shaped desks with a full modesty fronts that are height adjustable with the push of a button. With the rise of adjustable tables and desks, we have also have seen an abundance of price points so that all consumers have the option for a better, healthier work environment.
If you sit behind a desk for hours at a time, you’re not doomed to a career of neck and back pain or sore wrists and fingers. Proper office ergonomics — including correct chair height, adequate equipment spacing and good desk posture — can help you and your joints stay comfortable at work.
