What to Think About Before Buying Standing Desks?
Posted by MAIDESITEDESK
DO I NEED AN ADJUSTABLE MONITOR ARM?
It may not be an absolute necessity, but we highly recommend one that gives you a range of vertical, horizontal, angular and rotational adjustments. Adjustable monitor arms help you do far more than set your monitor at a certain height; they also give you the flexibility to orient your monitor for lighting or glare conditions, change heights and angles and viewing depths to relieve eye strain and improve visual performance. Monitor arms help a lot while using standing desks.
DO I NEED A KEYBOARD TRAY?
Maybe, but probably not. As long as you've selected a height adjustment range that will accommodate comfortable seated and standing work heights, you shouldn't need a keyboard tray. However, if you are a shorter person, or need to accommodate shorter people while they work in a seated position, an adjustable keyboard tray that can adjust lower than the standing desks height may be appropriate. You can learn more about the pros and cons of keyboard trays from our article All About Keyboard Trays.
DO I NEED A FOOTREST?
Maybe. As long as you've selected a height adjustment range that will accommodate comfortable seated and standing work heights, you don't need a footrest. However, if you are a shorter person, or need to accommodate shorter people while they work in a seated position, a footrest may be appropriate.
DO I NEED A CUSHY FLOOR MAT?
Like a footrest, standing desks users often report greater comfort when using an anti-fatigue mat, so it may be a welcome addition to your work space.
DO I STILL NEED A CHAIR?
Yes, unless you are one of the rare people who can comfortably stand all day, every day, you will still want a chair at your computer workstation. However, instead of a costly high-end chair with all the bells and whistles that support sedentary workers, the active work station and work habits a sit-stand arrangement encourages might relieve some of that need.
