How to create the best ergonomic workstation

The human body is not designed to remain in the same position for hours at a time. Finding the right ergonomic solution to address this need to move and allow the user to change position frequently throughout the day can be a challenge. There are many options available and it is important to fully understand the needs of the user prior to making a purchase decision.

Height adjustable workcenter solutions are the foundation for any ergonomically equipped workspace and can be the single most effective means of achieving flexibility, maximizing comfort and increasing productivity in any office environment. 

Adjustable keyboard platforms are a great way to provide maximum ergonomic benefits and greater levels of comfort for any workforce. When used in conjunction with fixed height worksurfaces, or with height adjustable worksurfaces featuring limited ranges of adjustability, an adjustable keyboard platform can improve the overall usability and ergonomic functionality of the entire workcenter.

Monitor arms can be used with either fixed height or adjustable height workcenters and are an excellent way to achieve the optimal level of adjustability recommended by ergonomists. When used appropriately, they can help workers avoid the development of musculoskeletal disorders (MSD), aid in the management of existing MSD, and help alleviate eye strain associated with long hours of computer use in the office.

Desktop task lights add more than just a design element to an office. Using proper illumination for tasks can prevent glare, eliminate shadows and help improve performance with work that involves great levels of detail and contrast. Under-cabinet task lights provide a wide distribution of light in areas that need additional illumination due to shadowing from overhead or side light sources.

Workcenter accessories provide complete solutions for outfitting the modern workstation. Our accessory products are not only compatible with our adjustable height workcenters, they can also be used can be used with many of the most popular furniture systems and other adjustable height workstations in the market today.
