Work life (or school life) may already be hard enough, so why make it even harder by using a poorly designed desk? Traditional computer tables can be detrimental to your health and ultimately to your productivity. Especially when you're doing something that requires high concentration, you definitely need to invest in an ergonomic adjustable computer desk.
Wouldn't it be nice to just be able to work and focus on your task without worrying how your workstation is forcing you to unconsciously slouch on your chair or push your head abnormally forward? Even if you lost track of time while working, using a well-designed computer desk with the proper ergonomics can ensure that strains and pains brought about by prolonged sitting are minimized.
Well, ergonomic furniture such as an adjustable height computer desk are designed and engineered with considerations to the natural limitations and capabilities of the human body. As an example, the curves of an ergonomic chair are designed to support your back to reduce, if not eliminate, muscle aches due to constant sitting.
So how can an adjustable computer desk do the work for you?
Ideally, for your body to be comfortable while working, your desk should be slightly below your hands while your elbows are at a 90-degree angle on your sides and your forearms parallel to the floor. Furthermore, alternately sitting and standing while working is highly recommended so that you can keep your body active and stretch out your muscles from time to time, helping you avoid living a completely sedentary lifestyle.
With an adjustable desk, it is easy to maintain the recommended hand positions in relation to the working surface whether you're standing or sitting. All you have to do is adjust the height when needed.
If you're looking for a low-cost standing desk, you can opt for one that comes with a manual crank handle for the height adjustment.
Isn't a stand desk converter more convenient?
That may be true because all you have to do is put the converter on the desk when you want to stand while working and take it away when you want to sit down. But you have to realize that since they're simply placed on the desktop, there can be stability issues.
You don't want to lose concentration on your work just because the converter is shaking while you're typing, right? It will definitely defeat the purpose of having a standing desk for productivity purposes.
So how can you seamlessly transition between sitting and standing while working?
Electrically adjustable standing computer desks are your answer! Having to move around to get your converter or to turn the handle of a manual sit-to-stand desk can break your focus on the task at hand. It's totally distracting.
Motorized standup computer desk, on the other hand, can definitely let you change from standing to sitting and vice versa without distracting your mind off from what you're doing. With just one press of a button, you can quickly and effortlessly adjust the surface to your desired height.
In short, you can focus on what needs to be done and let the ergonomic desk handle the rest of the work such as keeping your physical health in check and helping you boost your productivity.
And do you know what's even better? A memory-height controller!
A smart controller will have several buttons wherein you can register your preferred desk height in advance. So all you need really need to do when you're at your desk is focus on growing your business and leave the other matters to your smart sit/stand desk.
