In many offices they are now part of the standard equipment: height-adjustable desks. They ensure that you can always decide whether you want to work standing or sitting. Other ergonomic office furniture such as mice or keyboards are also being used more and more frequently. But does that make sense? We looked at different ergonomic office furniture and their advantages and disadvantages! Height-adjustable desks - must-have or just an expensive table? First of all, we want to look at the height-adjustable desk because it is one of the biggest purchases for the office. First, a quick fact check to give you a better idea of what we\u0026#39;re talking about here. Height-adjustable desks usually have an electric motor that can be used to quickly adjust the height. In this overview we look at the features using the desqup Pro as an example, a high-quality height-adjustable desk for 449 euros. The model has automatic obstacle detection, a stand-up reminder function and a memory function for different heights. The table top of the desqup Pro is made of waterproof, scratch-resistant material and can withstand all everyday stresses. The motors are very quiet at 50 decibels and do not disturb even in large offices. Regardless of the brand and model, these are all characteristics you should look for when purchasing a height-adjustable desk. But now to the more important point: Is the height-adjustable desk absolutely necessary? Sitting for long periods of time is a “widespread disease” in Germany. On average, people in this country spend 8.5 hours a day on their “ass”. In addition to the actual working hours, this time also includes things such as dinner and breakfast as well as car trips. However, there is a health risk from just four hours a day. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), six hours is the absolute limit for not suffering serious damage. These are just the daily highs. You should never sit still for more than an hour at a time. Because even then your concentration starts to decrease and you feel tired. This applies in particular to activities in front of a computer screen. But there is a solution: the height-adjustable desk. The height-adjustable desk from desqup ensures that you are in a natural posture. Your body is constantly in motion and you have no chance of sinking into a chair. In addition, bad posture, neck and back pain and tension can easily be avoided because the table can be adjusted to exactly the right height. In addition, you have an improved basic tension and your calorie consumption increases again. The height-adjustable desk also helps to prevent diabetes and obesity. Conclusion: There is no real alternative to the standing desk. In many jobs, short breaks in movement cannot be implemented, and it is not easy to leave a video conference. We can therefore say with conviction that the height-adjustable desk is absolutely necessary for your health! Ergonomic Mouse and Keyboard - Are They Really Anything? It may sound familiar to you: after a long day at the computer, your hands feel tense and may even hurt. From typing and the unnatural position of the mouse, the muscles in the hand become tense and it starts to hurt. Damage to bones and cartilage, joints or tendons can occur over the years. Bad posture in the hand is also more common in people who work in the office for a long time. Ergonomic mice and keyboards aim to eliminate this problem. They are built in such a way that your hands are in the most natural position possible. With a regular mouse, your wrist is turned downwards and is therefore constantly under tension. The ergonomic mouse, on the other hand, roughly mimics the position of a handshake, and there is no longer any tension on the wrist. The buttons are placed so that you can reach them without straining your fingers. With a regular computer keyboard, the problem is different: the forearm often rests on it and the hands are bent down unnaturally. In the long run, this also puts a strain on the joints and tendons. The ergonomic keyboard is padded on the underside so that the forearm can rest comfortably. Thus there is no more pressure on the tendons of the forearm and the hand. Conclusion: If you work a lot with a mouse and keyboard, you should switch to ergonomic products. It does not cause high costs and protects you from signs of wear and poor posture on your hands and forearms. So: Absolute recommendation for frequent office work! Ergonomic stool: What can this trend piece of furniture do? You will probably also see stools more often now. The small stools have a semicircular rubber underside, which means that your body has to constantly make small compensating movements. In addition, you don\u0026#39;t have a backrest to sink into when the day gets longer again. Your upper body is in an upright position the whole time, and in combination with a height-adjustable desk, your neck is also permanently relaxed. The small movements caused by an ergonomic stool also support blood circulation. The result is better concentration and longer performance. The body\u0026#39;s calorie consumption also increases, which reduces the risk of obesity and diabetes. Maybe you know it: uncomfortable, old office chairs at work. The chairs are often made of textile and a lot of plastic and are also worn out. After just one day you will notice from your back that this chair cannot be a long-term solution. On hot days, the plastic armrests make you sweat even more than you already do. In addition to a height-adjustable desk, the ergonomic stool is an important purchase for your workplace. If you are forced to sit, do so as healthily as possible. The ergonomic stool Wobble by desqup simulates standing, the same muscles are encouraged. It is also indispensable in a healthy workplace! Conclusion: Ergonomic office furniture, yes or no? Height-adjustable desks and the like are by no means just short-lived trends, because they have a scientifically proven purpose and contribute to your health. Standing work has no alternative unless you can take a short movement break every hour or so. So that your hands don\u0026#39;t suffer from computer work either, we recommend an ergonomic mouse and keyboard.
