The term ergonomic desk was born with the beginning of the human science “Office Ergonomics”. The main goal of an ergonomic desk is to provide suitable adjustments for the placement of all elements in order to provide maximum comfort to the user. Ergonomic desks should allow for the adjustment of the height and angle of the keyboard tray, monitor arm and other elements.
The human body is designed for movement, and a height adjustable ergonomic desk allows for postural changes throughout the day or in relation to task demands. Research shows standing increases circulation, reduces discomfort or fatigue, and increases our productivity. Use of ergonomic desks with height adjustable features can increase productivity by increasing alertness. It is also believed that standing up for 2 hours a day can assist with weight loss. Watch ABC's Catalyst video "Sitting is Deadly" which shows that sitting can be very detrimental to your health.
Ergonomic office furniture is designed to provide comfort for those that must sit long hours at a desk. Ergonomic desks provide a work surface that should be slighter taller than regular office desks. This provides better support for using a mouse. It also allows the computer monitor to be at just below eye level. Ergonomic desks will also have a keyboard shelf that is parallel to the floor and allows your elbows to rest at a 90 degree angle at all times. Ergonomic desks are completely adjustable to customize the workspace for each individual.
