3 Reasons Why You Need Adjustable Table Legs On Your Work Desk Now!
Who doesn’t need a good reason to improve productivity and comfort? But are we looking for those ergonomic solutions in all the wrong places. Especially as our work environment is changing, whether working from home and adapting to a new work desk or returning to the office only to have to reconfigure your space to new safety guidelines. Perhaps it’s time to start from the bottom and work our way up – let’s take a look under the desk and see how adjustable height table legs can turn your work desk into a more profitable work space.
1. Optimize Efficiency
Let’s start with the number one reason: productivity. Give your mood a little boost by mixing things up and transitioning from sitting to standing. This simple step creates a sense of awareness about your body that activates important brain function. You are suddenly more alert, which in turn, helps with focus and efficiency. Your time is valuable. Rather than spending hours sitting at your desk in and out of focus and ultimately feeling unaccomplished at the end of it, give your mind short bursts of concentration by forcing your body into different positions and get more out of less time spent in front of the computer.
2. Improve Health
Standing height desks can actually improve your health. Back pain? Try standing to relieve your lower back from hours of sitting and slouching. Make a conscious effort to improve your posture while standing, then give yourself a break and return to a seated position and vice versa. Adjustable height table legs give you the freedom to move up and down, which helps with blood flow and increases circulation. The long term effects include an overall decrease in the risk of cardiovascular disease as a result. You can even burn calories! I mean, we’re only talking about an extra 10 calories per hour or so, so it’s not exactly going to replace your regular gym workout regimen. It’s not exactly going to be the cover story in the next health magazine center spread as the secret to weight loss, but hey, every little bit helps! And it promotes healthy habits that could lead to more energy and more motivation to move from the work desk to the weight room.
You have the option to control your own settings or accommodate other users. This is especially helpful in shared work desks and training desks. Are you working from home? Are the kids logging into school at home? Perhaps you share your desk with your spouse or kids when you’re not using it, and you would likely all have very different height settings. Standard fixed seated desk heights are generally acceptable for most users, but being able to move your table up or down, even just a few inches, to suit your perfect height setting is extremely helpful to prevent poor posture. Being seated too high and looking down on your monitors causes upper back and neck strain. Sitting too low may cause you to slither down into your seat to find an optimal viewing setting. Neither is good for your posture. Move the desk up or down to your custom user specifications, save the setting, then stand up and save those settings too so it’s easy to go back and forth with the press of a button. And with multiple user settings on the motor, you can save up to 4 settings.
