Standing Desks in Melbourne

Why radiologists choose standing desks in Melbourne

Being at a workstation looking at one or more monitors is a familiar scene for radiologists. 

Other tasks of radiologists may also be completed at the same spot. 

While there may be opportunities to move around, working as a radiologist means a lot of time spent stationed in a particular spot. 

So making sure that a portion of your day is spent at a standing desk can no doubt bring tremendous health benefits, as well as a boost to your energy and concentration!

Why should radiologists choose standing desks in Melbourne from Ergomotion?

Health benefits of standing desks

Like a lot of other modern day roles, radiologists can spend a lot of time sitting.

Examining images on screens, a big part of radiology work, is often done at a workstation. 

And many workstations include desks you can only sit at.

How can this be a problem? 

Research shows that sedentary behaviours, meaning the time you spent sitting or lying down in your waking hours, are associated with negative health outcomes.

Health outcomes linked to sedentary behaviours include: 

Tips for avoiding these outcomes and even looking after your mental health are sitting less and being more active

Too much time sitting down as a radiologist could have a negative impact on your health. 

With a standing desk (which we also call a sit-stand desk because you can do both) you can reduce the time you spend sitting to improve and protect your health. If you have an existing condition such as back pain a sit-stand desk could help to reduce any pain or discomfort you experience sitting down for prolonged periods.

Sit-stand desks encourage improved productivity and performance 

Using a standing desk can make radiologists more productive and perform better in their roles. 

For a start improved health and feeling more comfortable at a workstation reduces the likelihood of radiologists having reduced capacity to work and perform at their best. 

Better health and greater levels of comfort means improved productivity and performance. 

It has been reported that workers also experience higher levels of energy and concentration when they are able to spend more time standing.

These are obviously important results for radiologists trying to remain alert and productive in their roles. 

The suitability of quality sit-stand desks as radiologist workspaces discussed below adds to their productivity and performance benefits.

Sit-stand Desks

Suitability as workspaces  

Our standing desks make great workspaces for any radiologist.  

Looking at screens

One of the major parts of working as a radiologist is looking at a screen. Ergomotion standing desks make looking at a screen easier. How do they do this? 

Ergomotion monitor arms allow radiologists to move their computer monitor to the perfect position. 

The monitor arms are the perfect complementary accessory to your standing desk and can be moved in any direction.

With an adjustable arm radiologists no longer have to crane, twist and bend their neck to see the screen. The reach, pan, tilt and height of your monitor can be adjusted in seconds to suit your exact specifications.

While looking at the monitor to diagnose physical problems, radiologists will be avoiding their own! 

Radiologists often work with multiple screens.

Which means the benefits of monitor arms in our desks can be multiplied. Our 7500 wing monitor arm mount is able to hold two screens at once.

Cable trays and in-built power sockets

Radiologist workspaces involve cables and their natural match, power sockets.

Our standing desks make keeping cables in the right spot and accessing power sockets easy. 

With our sit-stand desks control cables, cords, adaptors, and more are neatly contained in desk cable trays and power sockets can be easily built in.

An OH&S issue and workspace practicality and tidiness problem solved!

Flexible working positions 

Height adjustable sit-stand desks allow radiologists to switch between sitting and standing during the time they spend at a workstation.

While sitting too much is a problem, research shows too much standing can cause health problems too. So how do you find the right balance? 

Good standing desks are height adjustable.

This means they can be used for sitting and standing – the key to using a standing desk to its full benefit!

Our standing desks, with electronic motors from reputable European manufacturers, allow different height settings to be saved.

This means radiologists can sit and stand without wasting any time and effort.

Once settings are saved, the right height is one push of a button away, ensuring you can gain the maximum benefits from a height-adjustable standing desk. 

Saving multiple height settings with our sit-stand desks also makes hot desking and shared workspaces a breeze.

Radiologists who are hot desking or sharing their workspace can easily access the benefits of Ergomotion sit-stand desks.

I've had an ergomotion desk for 10 years. It's still as good today as it was brand new. Over the years Guy has always responded promptly to any guidance I've needed (mostly help putting the desk back together after removalists take it apart).

I purchased the edesk from Guy at Ergomotion. Guy was a pleasure to deal with and the desk arrived the next day. Guy was highly knowledgeable on the desk and provided very prompt support on the installation. I can highly recommend Ergomotion.
