Quick Tips for Sit-Stand Desk Users

By Guy Osmond on 8th Sep 2014

We have been working with employers to identify behaviour change issues and training requirements related to the use of sit-stand desks in the office. Needs vary from organisation to organisation and this often depends as much on corporate culture as on physical workplace issues.

One common theme has been the need for a ‘quick tips’ list. Those of us embedded in these activities every day sometimes forget that the ‘blindingly obvious’ (to us) may not even be visible to the majority! The document therefore has to be something with a handful of ideas that are easily implemented and make sense to everyone, rather than just the ergonomics/health & safety team members.

The result is a one page, ‘6 ideas’ list that is deliberately simple. For a longer, more detailed list, see one of my previous blogs.

What our customers say

"Have tried a couple of other mice, looking for a vertical alignment. Some too big, or too small, or too heavy but this is so adaptable with changing angles and thumb position, I thought it would be a good one to try. Have had it a week, and having simply plugged it in (to my Mac), I have have found it really easy to use. I managed to adapt it to my needs with big hands, and need to lift and scroll (for CAD work) - so although the easing of the RSI situation will only be none in the long run (I'm not ready to stop work!), I am well satisfied."
