How To: 4 Easy Steps to Use a Standing Desk at Work

Posted by Ellen O'Hearn on

At Stand Steady, we take ergonomics seriously. According to the United States Department of Labor’s website for Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA), for standing at standing desk computer workstations, OSHA recommends, “The user's legs, torso, neck, and head are approximately in-line and vertical. The user may also elevate one foot on a rest while in this posture.”

 Below are some additional basics for using a standing desk at work:

1) Your elbows should be at a 90 degree angle to the desktop, (which requires an adjustable height desk, such as a Stand Steady standing desk, since everyone is a different height).

2) The top of your monitor should align with your eyes.

3) Use an anti-fatigue mat, such as Smartcells, to reduce joint stress.

4) Take a few sitting breaks throughout the day.
