How do standing desks improve productivity and reduce injuries in a radiologist’s workplace?
Recently, Ergomotion has had great success in providing height adjustable desks to radiologists. This niche market requires adaptable furniture in their offices and practices to fulfil a wide range of duties that staff perform daily.
Our desks meet the growing and changing demands of this industry and match the ergonomic requirements of radiologists, allowing them to avoid static working positions, thus improving productivity.
Benefits of ergonomic desks for radiologists
1. A better reading experience
Radiologists can spend a large part of their day reading, analysing and examining PACS (picture archiving and communication system). Choose a position (between sitting and standing), adjust to your optimum height, and read with ease and comfort – all day long.
Our desks are designed with user control in mind, ensuring your experience is as simple and hassle-free as possible.
2. Support up to 200kgs
Balance several monitors as well as your regular desk accessories with desks that offer support for up to an astonishing 200kgs. (And steadily adjust the height so there’s no spilt coffee or tumbling computer screens!)
3. Multiple memory height positions
The ability to quickly and simply switch between a seated and standing position is made effortless by electronic desks. To make it even simpler, you can add multiple memory heights (like your optimum sitting and standing height) and switch between the two in seconds.
Don’t bother with a manual height adjustable desk that is raised and lowered with hassle, and without height precision. And trust us, those manual height adjustable desks? They’re almost guaranteed to remain in the one position – sitting – day after day.
4. Switch between sitting and standing as often as you need to throughout your workday
Starting off with a standing desk can feel a little daunting… if you don’t have the right information.
Remember: you must not spend all your day standing! (Just as you don’t want to spend your entire day sitting). Ease into a standing desk by standing for small, periods throughout the day. Start with half an hour at 11am, and repeat at 1.30pm and 4pm.
After a few weeks, as your body adjusts, you can crank up the frequency.
The key? Habitually switching between sitting and standing.

5. Spend your whole day in comfort, and, as a result, increase productivity
Keep your energy levels high, avoid the dreaded afternoon slump, and burn calories without even knowing it!
They’re three awesome benefits of incorporating standing into your workday.
(And the kids agree, too: standing desks are making their way into the classroom, improving students’ concentration, learning, and memory.)
6. Reduce the incident of work-related injuries…
…particularly those in the neck, shoulders, wrists, and back.
You’ve probably experienced at least one of these work-related injuries, or pain and discomfort: it’s estimated that between 70 and 90 per cent of Australia’s population will suffer back-related injuries or pain in their lifetime. (And for those who don’t, you can consider yourselves very lucky!)
Back related injuries result not only in horrible discomfort for your staff, but can impact your business. Around half of those that suffer from back pain have to take some time off work.
While your employees are taking care of your patients’ health, these height adjustable desks will be taking care of your employees.
Ideal for hot desking radiology scenarios
Those work environments that see a number of employees using the one desk during different shift times across the entire day or night are referred to as hot desking offices.
The environments of radiologists may vary considerably, but for those who use the one desk across different time periods (like different shifts or part-time workers) can reap the benefits of having a desk that they can adjust to suit their own particular needs. Perhaps you find standing first thing in the morning sets your focus for the rest of your shift?
If the next person using your desk prefers sitting, or is even just a bit shorter than you, they can switch up their preferences and start their shift off with their exact preferences.
The addition of monitor arms and cable management create the complete ergonomic workstation
Complete your entire workstation with a variety of additional ergonomic accessories, including:
Adjust the reach, pan, tilt and height of single or multiple monitors in just seconds. Precise adjustment optimises your reading, thanks to our monitor arms.
Control cables, cords, adaptors, and more, by neatly containing them in our desk cable trays. This is an obvious OH&S issue, solved!
