A Body in Motion, Stays in Motion – Things to Consider when Choosing a Height Adjustable Desk
Our bodies are designed for movement and sitting long periods of time can be challenging. Alternating between sitting and standing positions is critical for us to keep our bodies healthy. Height Adjustable workstations provide employees with the option to move about throughout the day and select the ideal working position for them.
The standard sit/stand height is usually between 22 – 48 inches with the table height landing just below the user’s elbow.
For people who are taller or shorter, alternative table legs might be needed.
Desktop power modules make plugging in small accessories such as task lighting and a phone charger easy and accessible. Knowing this, a power strip is standard with SKG height adjustable tables.
Consider the path of the wires from the top of the table to the power source. Remember that extra length is needed when the table is raised so cords aren’t accidentally yanked out. Wires should be safely secured to the desk or base.
Several solutions are available for hiding wires. Your desk may have grommet holes for dropping wires. On top, you could use a cord sleeve or box to funnel wires through. Standard with SKG height adjustable tables is a wire basket for cords. In addition, modesty panels can easily hide cords below the desk.
The monitor should be eye level and an arm’s length away. A monitor arm helps with these adjustments and can keep the desktop clear.
Monitor arms are secured with grommets or clamps. When selecting the monitor arm, the size of the monitor needs to be considered along with whether there will be one monitor or two.
