How Ergomotion Can Help Workstation Ergonomics

Workstation ErgonomicsMany workers tend to spend 9, 10 or even more hours each day doing repetitive tasks while sitting at poorly fitted workstations.  The impact of this can be quite dramatic and may include sore limbs, backs and necks that result not only pain and suffering for the worker, but also decreased productivity and reduced employee morale. Fortunately, here are some great ways to help you improve your office’s workstation ergonomics and reduce some of the pain and consequences that result from workers using poorly designed and fitted workstations.

To maximse workstation ergonomics, office managers are encouraged to purchased adjustable equipment, such as height adjustable desks and ergonomic office chairs to reasonably workers of various heights and body types. The primary goal of workstation ergonomics is to facilitate task performance and minimize fatigue by offering equipment that is ideally sized to the individual user and the requirements of the job.

Tips for improving workstation ergonomics:

  • Workstation ergonomics dictates that the ideal workstation height allows the user to sit at the workstation with the keyboard in place and be able to maintain a 90- 100 degree elbow angle and straight wrists while typing.
  • Correct workstation ergonomics requires knee space to be 30” wide by 19” deep by 27” high. Drawers and cupboards should not be placed where human legs need to fit.
  • Proper workstation ergonomics also require a workstation to be spacious enough to allow room for all computers and computer-related equipment, but also for paperwork, books, and other materials needed while working at the computer.

Great service and really quick shipping. It is great to know that you are getting quality parts from a Scandinavian manufacturer with your standing desk purchase rather than the cheap knock off stuff you get from other major brands. Reasonably priced for the quality too!

Guy was very accommodating with meeting him at a time that suited me. He assembled the desk prior to me collecting so I only had to carry it inside with help (it's pretty heavy). The desk is great, the storage racks underneath with the 6 x built in powerpoints was worth the extra money. I have a functioning & tidy workplace.
Guy was brilliant, I highly recommend.

Have now purchased 2 stand up office desks off Guy, benchmark sales service from him, all via email, so easy; from quote to plug in, only matched by the strong quality of these machines, solid and stable. If only everything in life was this easy and reliable.

I purchased an EDesk this month from Ergomotion, and it was a remarkably smooth transaction. Guy was eager to answer all my questions before my purchase. As a first-time buyer of a standing desk, I truly appreciated how he addressed my queries with thorough details and provided options within my budget.

The delivery process was also smooth, despite a slight delay in the ETA. Guy ensured I received all necessary updates from the courier/removalist.

I've been using the desk for a couple of weeks now and I'm satisfied with it. It's sturdy on all height adjustments and the motor works as expected. I also like oak finish because it's clean-looking and suits my room setup.

Overall, I'm happy with my purchase and I'll definitely recommend Ergomotion to someone looking for their desk needs.

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).

Skip the big name brands and buy from Guy instead, 10/10 linak parts with a very well built tabletop.

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.
