Top 5 Ergonomic Desk Options

Posted on September 15, 2022

Gone are the days when the kitchen counter could double as a work surface. Whether you're working from home or within the office, it is important to equip your work station with ergonomic products. Ergonomic products are specifically engineered with physiological principles, maximizing user productivity and reducing work-related injuries. When it comes to ergonomic desks, the most important factor is its height adjustability. This is because sitting at a desk all day puts you at an increased risk for conditions such as increased blood pressure, back pain, depression, abnormal cholesterol levels, etc. Therefore, research suggests that people should spend 30 minutes of every hour standing at their workstation. However, we know that you do not have time to shop through web page after web page of the internet's picks for ergonomic desks. That is why we used our 30+ years of experience in the furniture industry to bring you Interior Motions' picks for the top 5 ergonomic desk options.
