Alternative Sitting

Adjustable work tables

There are three types of height-adjustable work table:

Simple height adjustment

This involves setting the required height in each of the table’s legs. It provides for adjustment to suit one user for one task. It is not suitable for shared workstations or for a single user who needs to change heights frequently for different tasks.

Variable height adjustment

This is usually operated via a crank handle. It provides for frequent changes of height and is suitable for shared workstation use or for a single user who wishes to use one workstation for both keyboard and paperwork tasks.

Sit-stand workstations

These provide for frequent changes of position between sitting and standing positions. A sit-stand workstation provides the ultimate in flexibility and convenience. The ability to move easily between sitting and standing positions is extremely beneficial in reducing postural strain.
