AME System has developed an ergonomic height-adjustable work station, designed to avoid bad posture and unnecessary reaching, that allows the users to adjust the desk height from sitting to standing in a matter of seconds.
The adjustment is done electrically thereby allowing the users to have a quick, effortless and large range of adjustment.
Good ergonomic practice contributes directly to a company's bottom line through savings made in work related injuries, and consists of a combination of good design while maintaining a degree of flexibility and activity.
Ergonomic research has indicated an increase in injuries, such as RSI, due to increased hours of static posture due to sitting for long periods of time, or sitting at desks that are not the correct height for the user.
Having the ability to adjust posture from sitting to standing has been found to reduce the risks of these types of injuries. Making this adjustment electrically makes it easy for the users to adjust their desks.
Mainstream adjustable desks usually only allow adjustment for sit/sit environments and are usually cumbersome to adjust. This usually detracts the user from adjusting the desk and it therefore remains in its original height when purchased, leading to the users not adjusting the desks to suit their own postures.
The risks increase when the desk is not adjusted in a multi-user or multi-tasking environment.
Having an electric height adjustable desk reduces the amount of sick days accumulated, allows people to be more productive, and greatly reduces the risk of suffering injuries over the long term.
