How height adjustable desks can transform your office
The very best office furniture combines function and form with style. However, the latest developments in desks means that workplace welfare and wellness can be enhanced along with productivity. We take a look at a fresh range of electronically height adjustable desks and assess the impact they can make.
One of the main benefits of an ergonomic desk is that it reduces the amount of stress and tension it puts the body of the user under. Repeated studies have shown that people who sit at a desk or in a chair for a great length of time put their body – in particular the back – under significant strain.
Back pain is one of the main side effects of this, leading to a drop in productivity and a rise in incidences of sick leave. One of the best ways to combat this is to use an intelligently designed desk height adjustable desk – also known as a sit-stand desk.
Why sit and stand?
Alternating sitting and standing at work cuts the amount of pressure put on the body by staying in one position for too long. It keeps the body active – as well as the mind – and gives workplaces flexibility.
Bene has developed the LEVEL LIFT range for just this purpose. The desks in this collection can be electronically adjusted from 64 up to 130cm, using a handset (there’s also a Bluetooth option). Michael Fried, Bene’s Managing Director for Sales, Marketing and Innovation, says that, “anyone who uses the office for long, focused work needs a space that conveys clarity and focus on the essentials and a worktable adapted to his/her needs to protect against damage to health.”
The LEVEL LIFT range
Having desks that are easily adjustable is a cost-effective way to put wellness at the heart of your workplace as it means you don’t have to buy a mixture of sit-down andstand-up desks. These do both.
The entry-level model is the LEVEL LIFT PURE, available in a range of colours. It incorporates a rectangular tabletop with the option of a soft edge. The LEVEL LIFT TWIN is a marriage of two desks, both adjustable, so one user can sit, the other stand, both stand, or both sit – it’s the epitome of flexibility, and the range of finishes only enhances this.
Finally, the LEVEL LIFT PRO comes with a high-quality finish with a Fenix Black surface – this nanotech matte surface is soft to the touch and isn’t marked by fingerprints. It’s a stylish choice but comes with the same ergonomic benefits as the rest of the range with a wealth of options to get the desk you want.
