There are many things to weigh in pros and cons when selecting a sit-stand desk. With more than a dozen exclusive ergonomic desk models from PrimeCables available, we thought we’d count down ten considerations to make when finding the right desk for you.

Height adjustability

Every ergonomic sit-standing desk may come with a specific height range. Optimum height range varies between 22.6” to 48.7” though evidently this depends on the individual. If it’s a shared desk, select a desk with a decent range to it to accommodate the different heights.

Depth

 

If you want to be able to spread out your work, it’s a necessity to take into consideration depth. Then again, if you don’t have a lot of paper to spread out, depth might not be so important and you can select an ergonomic desk with less of a footprint.

 

Noisiness

 

Adjusting height can sometimes be noisy so it bears keeping in mind whether an electric mechanism is loud or disruptive. Thankfully, not all of them are. If they are noisy though and you’re working in a corporate public environment, your standing desk adjustments may disturb others.

 

Movement

 

There are many different ways to raise and lower a sit-standing desk. There are hand cranks, electric lifts, and pneumatic lifts. If it’s electric or pneumatic, it should be quiet and easy to accomplish. If it’s a hand crank, your desk is more likely to be difficult to adjust.

Speed

 

Some height adjustable desks may take time to raise and lower them. The faster the speed is, the more often a person is likely to use the height adjustment feature. This bears keeping in mind if you’re buying for a workforce rather than yourself.

 

Power

 

If you buy an ergonomic desk, such as those from PrimeCables, that requires a power source to be able to function, you must ensure you’re in a space with easy access. Keep in mind this may not always be the case.

 

Leg fatigue

 

If someone has to stand the entirety of their shift at a standing desk, they’re going to get fatigued. They may require a supportive ergonomic mat, a riser to support one foot while standing, a gel mat, or something else. Tolerance builds but not that quickly.

 

Weight

 

Sit-stand desks come with weight restrictions. Exceeding these may result in a desk no longer functioning in height adjustment. Make sure the desk is equipped to handle your equipment.

 

Programmability

 

Some desks can be programmed with different preset height adjustments. Then, there are other desks that already come with programming done. Depending on what you need from your ergonomics, consider this.

 

Functionality

 

The functionality of a sit-standing desk is up for debate in some offices. The aesthetic of your office environment should be taken into consideration. For example, you may need to accommodate things like lighting, rails, or privacy screens.
