How Standing Desks Improve Productivity 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.

Standing desks for radiologists

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.

(Find out more about making the switch to a standing desk in this blog post.)

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:

Monitor arms

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.

Cable trays

Control cables, cords, adaptors, and more, by neatly containing them in our desk cable trays. This is an obvious OH&S issue, solved!

Bought sit, stand desk. Great product, fantastic service all at a reasonable price.

Guy was a pleasure to deal with from the beginning and catered to my specifications. The quality of the table was amazing! I’ve seen some other desks from other manufacturers which were extremely flimsy, unstable and poorly constructed. The product was custom built and received very promptly as well. Thanks again Guy, I know where I’ll be heading the next time I’m in need of a desk!

My young son adores his sit stand desk from Ergomotion, we are very happy with the quality and we love that his desk will grow with him into his adult years. Guy was a pleasure to deal with. We highly recommend.

Guy provided an e-desk for me. I used it with a natural bamboo tabletop 180cm in width and it works wonderfully. Guy was very responsive with a qeury i had about the product - i couldnt ask for more. Highly recommended.

Guy has been one of the most helpful people in helping me setting up my brand new desk frame. He guided me on where to find the best quality desktops to add onto the desk legs.

Guy was an absolute professional from start to finish. Very seamless process with ordering to pick up taking less than 24hrs.

Guy will take the time to understand your requirements, communicates clearly and will not try to upsell items you don’t require. Instructions to put together are clear and the videos on the website are helpful too.

We are extremely happy with our purchases. Desks are well designed and built. We love our new desks and would happily recommend Ergomotion.

Thanks Guy and all the best!

**Reposting from my personal account.**

I spoke to Guy shortly after moving to Australia to get some information about their standing desks. I'd been on the hunt for one for a while and was struggling to find something that seemed to be good quality while still being reasonably priced.

Guy answered all my questions confidently and clearly, checked their stock levels since I was looking at a hardwood desktop not specified on their site and got back to me promptly with all the information.

When I was ready to go ahead with the order, it was a quick phone call and my order was on it's way. When the delivery seemed as though it might take longer than expected, Guy dropped the desk with me himself.

I put the desk together which was a very simple process - although a powered screw driver would have made the job much easier for me, I left all my tools in South Africa when I moved over and haven't built up a collection again just yet. The desk has been great and will get I'm sure, many years of happy use!

I highly recommend Ergomotion as a brand! Guy's service is a strong addition to an already great product.

Guy was just a pleasure to deal with. Excellent knowledge and advice which followed through to excellent after sales. The e-desk is very sturdy, easy to use and looks great. Great job Guy and thank you

I love my Ergomotion stand up desk! It is easy to set up and is made of quality materials. However, the best part of the purchase was the excellent customer service I received. Guy (the owner) came out in the pouring rain to measure the boot of my car to make sure I could pick the desk up (fully assembled) and it would fit. I ordered the desk on a Monday and it was ready by Tuesday morning. He helped loading the desk in my car, removed a leg so that it could fit and explained how to put the leg back in, which was very straightforward and did not need any tools. If you are considering buying a stand up desk, I would definitely recommend Ergomotion.

Guy was lovely to deal with. He was prompt and courteous in all his communication. He was happy for us to look at the desk before purchase. Once ordered, the desk arrived so quickly. Guy set it all up and we are extremely happy with the product. Thanks Guy for your great service and care.
