What Are Some Other Options Besides VARIDESK Height Adjustable Desks?
Purchasing a height adjustable desk is a big investment, and it’s important to choose the right one. Should you get a standing desk converter, or spring for a complete desk setup? The decision lies in the ergonomics. Height adjustable desks can provide exceptional ergonomic support, but not all are created equal. Here’s what you need to know before purchasing a sit-stand desk.
Ways to Achieve a Height Adjustable Desk
There are two primary ways to enjoy a height adjustable desk. You can purchase a sit-stand desk, or a desk converter. Sit-stand desks give you more space to work, because the entire desk moves up and down. Converters are a good way to quickly update your existing desk, because they sit right on top.
One of the biggest drawbacks of a standing desk converter, though, is that only part of your desk is at standing height. This is typically only enough space for your monitor, keyboard, and mouse, so papers need to remain below. It also will not sit flush with your desk, so it will likely be at an ergonomically unsound position.
Types of Height Adjustable Desks Available
Today, there are a diverse range of height adjustable desks available. They aren’t all created equal, though. IKEA offers both an electric and a manual sit-stand desk but they aren’t ergonomically sound. These rectangular desks reduce usable workspace, making you stretch and lean in ways that can strain your back over time.
VARIDESK offers both standing desk converters and a full sit-stand desk. Their sit-stand desks are electric, come in two different styles. Office supply retailers like Staples and Amazon also have their own versions, though they are typically not as sturdy as brand name desks.
