Ergo Concept

I am interested in incorporating sit-stand products in my office setting to try if it fits my needs. What product will you recommend?

A height-adjustable desk riser or converter is a perfect item for transforming an office desk into a sit-stand desktop. First, the user does not have to dispose any existing furniture. Second, they come pre-assembled and can be set up immediately. No installation is required. Third diversified designs and tabletop choices right now to choose from. For example, CDG’s SP101 offers spacious and robust 36”-wide desktop, which can hold up to 35 lbs and features a stepless height adjustment.

Why is ergonomics important?

Apart from home, where do people spend most of their time while being awake? The answer is, at work. Research shows that the average person will spend 90,000 hours at work over a lifetime. As humans increasingly rely on technological applications to accomplish work, how we can access work essentials more easily has interested many people. Besides, more people pay attention to how well the working and living environment can be arranged to facilitate well-being, interaction and collaboration. These trends have encouraged furniture designers and engineers to provide solutions and to develop practical products and designs to improve how we live, work, and rest. One of the attempts is to design and innovate products with ergonomics in mind.
