A height-adjustable desk makes everyday work healthier and more pleasant. Many companies have now completely switched to the new technology in their offices, and the standing desk is also often found in the home office. When it comes to location and construction, however, you should pay attention to a few things so that the working day runs smoothly. We have summarized the most important aspects briefly and concisely! Location: Where to put the height-adjustable desk? The location of the desk may not have played a major role for you so far. It was probably mostly placed where there was space or where it looked best. If it was too dark or too light there, lamps were put up or a curtain hung. However, this is not healthy, because incorrect lighting conditions cause damage to the eyes in the long term and your concentration also suffers as a result. Poor lighting conditions make your eyes work harder. Also, the bright computer display hurts your eyes when the rest of the environment is much darker. In the course of the day, if the lighting is too poor, you will have headaches, problems concentrating and you may even develop bad posture and shoulder and neck problems. Studies have also said that a gloomy, cold work environment promotes depression. Too much light, on the other hand, means your eyes have to compensate. The result is pain in the eyes and also headaches. Not to mention that you can hardly see anything on the computer screen if the light is too bright. Light is so important for people because the body produces vitamin D through exposure to sunlight. A lack of vitamin D leads to poor eyesight and mental illnesses such as depression. You should therefore pay attention to the incidence of light when positioning your height-adjustable desk. Experts recommend that it is best to sit\/stand at your desk at a 90-degree angle to the window. Since the light falls on the desk from the side, you benefit from daylight all day long without annoying reflections. If you are left-handed you should always sit with your right hand towards the window, if you are right-handed with your left hand. In this way you prevent the disturbing shadow of your hand or arm. Also interesting: Studies have shown that employees primarily pay attention to the lighting conditions in the office, other influences such as the view or decoration only come afterwards. On the desqup website you will find many more articles and guides on the subject of height-adjustable desks. Here you can find out, for example, why the standing desk is so healthy for you. Have a look! Height-adjustable desk: Who bears the costs? Employers in Germany are also obliged to use ergonomic furniture in office workplaces. These include, for example, adjustable office chairs and monitors or separate standing desks. Things like exercise or outdoor breaks are also part of this concept of a “healthy” workplace. However, height-adjustable desks are not mandatory because they are not mentioned in the workplace ordinance. So there is no obligation for standing desks, both at work and in the home office. But who then bears the cost of a height-adjustable desk? In some exceptional cases, the costs can be covered by health or pension insurance. This may be the case if you have had a lot of sick days due to long periods of sitting in the last 12 months. However, a doctor must certify that the damage was really caused by sitting for too long. The best way to get the employer to cover the costs is to seek dialogue. Many companies are interested in the long-term health of their employees and are therefore happy to provide height-adjustable desks. You should heed the following tips if you are planning to buy a height-adjustable desk: Talk to your employer if you would like to have a height-adjustable desk at work. Don\u0026#39;t make the purchase yourself first If you spend a long time in the home office, the equipment of the workplace by the employer can become relevant. However, please do not buy a table yourself and then claim the costs Make the argument with your boss about the health and performance benefits of a height-adjustable desk Approach your boss with offers, desqup, for example, offers volume discounts when an entire company is equipped with tables In the vast majority of cases, companies will bear the cost of a height-adjustable desk. The health and satisfaction of all employees is improved, and the company also creates incentives for new employees\/trainees. Working while standing also increases performance and stress tolerance. Even if the employer should not bear the costs, that is not too big of a problem. Height-adjustable desks are no longer as expensive as they used to be. The desqup Pro, for example, is already available for 449.00 euros, including the table top. In addition to high-quality workmanship, it convinces with many smart functions such as obstacle detection and child safety. Cable routing \u0026amp;amp; obstacles: caution instead of indulgence In the meantime, countless technical devices are needed on a desk. From the computer with accessories to charging stations for mobile phones and the like. With all these devices there are also many cables that somehow have to be routed from the desk to the power supply. What is not a problem with a \u0026quot;normal\u0026quot; desk quickly becomes complicated with a height-adjustable table. When adjusting the height, it quickly happens that a cable breaks off or causes other damage. Tip: You should always wire your height-adjustable table in the highest position. So it cannot happen that a cable is unintentionally tight or short and that there is an accident when starting up. Other obstacles such as wall boards, plants or pictures should also be brought to a safe place before starting up for the first time. But: All desqup desks have automatic obstacle detection. If resistance is detected, the table will automatically stop in one place. Even if you have small children in your apartment, that\u0026#39;s not a problem: thanks to the child safety lock, the desqup desk cannot be moved unintentionally or carelessly.
