Desk ergonomics and choosing the right desk for
Searching for an ergonomic desk?
It is easy to look at a beautiful timber desk and consider its merit based on aesthetics alone. The beauty of that curved minimalist desk, or the intricate seating arrangement to match it can be pleasing to the eye but how good is it for your health, and how do you know which one you should take home? Choosing the right work surface is both an investment in your health and wellbeing, but also in your productivity. Conducting correct posture and ergonomic seating while working at your desk is just as important as the desk you are seated at.
What is ergonomics exactly?
According to the International Ergonomics Association, “Ergonomics is the scientific discipline concerned with the understanding of interactions among humans and other elements of a system, and the profession that applies theory, principles, data and methods to design in order to optimise human well-being and overall system performance’.
Ergonomics is essentially the study of how people fit in their work environment. So it becomes important that you choose both that beautiful in-laid leather and silky oak table top (because it defines your style and projects your substance to potential clients) but also, because it will be a perfect fit for you ergonomically and promote your health and wellbeing.
