How To Choose A Sit-Stand Desk

Did you know that sitting at a desk for nine hours a day is considered as detrimental to your health as smoking? In fact, more than 80% of workers experience discomfort on the job, especially in situations where they can’t change positions and postures during the day. It’s one of the main reasons stand-up desks or sit-to-stand desks are growing in popularity.

But how do you know if a height-adjustable desk is right for you? How do you determine which height adjustable desk is best? If you’re an employer, how can you be sure to get ROI on stand-up desks? How can you be sure your employees will actually use them? Do you provide every employee with one or execute a roll-out of sit-stand desks in your workplace? Or maybe you provide several sit-stand workstations throughout your workspace for employees to use as needed?

The office furnishings experts from Desks, Incorporated in Denver put together this list of six things to consider when choosing a sit-stand desk.

1. Get The Right Height Range: 22.6”-48.7” is the optimal range. However, it also depends on the height and needs of the person who will be using the desk. If the sit-stand desk is going to be shared, choose a desk with a large range.

2. Depth is Important, Too: When choosing a desk, a minimum 30” depth is good. Desks come in a variety of work surface shapes, as well.

3. Adjustment Should Be Easy: Some sit-stand desks have hand cranks while others have electric or pneumatic lifts. Electric and pneumatic lifts are quieter, more efficient and easier to use. How fast it can be raised or lowered is also important, as users will usually adjust their work surfaces multiple times during the day.

4. Check The Weight Restrictions: Different sit-stand desks have different weight requirements. Make sure the desk can handle your workspace equipment.

5. Choose The Right Functionality. Can the sit-stand desk accommodate a privacy screen? Lighting? Tool Rails? Will the aesthetic fit into your workspace environment? These are also key considerations.

6. Is The Price Right? Sit-Stand desks come in a wide range of price points. Can you afford the quality you need for maximum performance?
