How to improve desk ergonomics 

Author, Minda Zetlin described most home offices as 'an ergonomic time bomb.' In this article we'll help you understand why home desk ergonomics is so important and what you can do to improve them.

Desk ergonomics is the science of designing your workspace to fit you, rather than you physically adapting to suit your desk. The WFH Desks are perfectly designed for this purpose. Not all desks available for purchase will allow you to set your desk up ergonomically.

However, ergonomic setup is vital if you are going to be working at home long-term. A desk setup that isn't ergonomically correct could result in musculoskeletal health problems, and decreased performance and productivity due to posture issues and pain.

Ergonomic Desk Assessment - Here's how to set up your workspace ergonomically:

✅ Adjust the desktop height so that your arms bend comfortably at the elbows at a 90° angle. Your forearms should be parallel with the desktop and your wrists should remain flat, never inclined up or down when using your keyboard.

✅ Your neck should be straight and shoulders relaxed with the screen you use most often positioned directly in front of you, the top of the monitor in line with your eyes.

✅ If sitting, your chair should allow you to keep your feet flat on the floor with your knees bent at a 90° angle.

What makes a desk ergonomic?

When choosing a desk for your home office, you want to ensure that the desks you're looking at are height adjustable.

Having the ability to adjust the height of your desk is crucial to obtaining an ergonomic home desk setup.

Poor ergonomics can literally end up being a pain in the neck!Bad posture that comes with slumping or hunching over a desk can cause musculoskeletal disorders resulting in numbness, sharp pain, tingling, and tension migraines.

In addition to the physical impact that poor working posture will have on your body, it can also negatively impact your mood, energy levels, focus, and productivity.

You might find a home desk that's cute and that's also the right size for your space, but if you can't adjust it for ergonomic comfort, it won't be a great small office desk for the long term.

So really, the key point to remember is not to sacrifice your ergonomic comfort for a home computer desk just because it's the right size and it looks nice.

The good news is that you don't have to conform your body to fit your small desk.

With a WFH Desk or a WFH Sitting Desk, they provide a compact, space-efficient and highly-functional workspace that's also height-adjustable.

Added bonus? They're super stylish too!

Proper ergonomics for your desk starts with the best desk choice

The WFH Desk range makes it a breeze to create an ergonomic setup. It's height adjustable so you can set the desktop in the ideal position for your ergonomic profile.

Plus, the range of WFH Desk accessories means you can locate your equipment - such as your keyboard, monitors, laptop etc. - within a comfortable height and distance.

WFH desks are height-adjustable to allow you to set your desktop and monitor at the correct height, whether sitting or standing. They also provide ample room to have your keyboard and mouse in the correct positions. 

A WFH Desk is height adjustable, which means you can position it to match your ergonomic profile.

Where to buy an ergonomic computer desk

When you shop for a desk from the Work From Home Desks range, you have the option to either purchase a WFH Desk or WFH Sitting Desk on their own and to add your own choice of modules or accessories if needed.

Alternatively, we've also curated a selection of desk bundles that include a desk and specific accessories we believe would suit different types of work. You can check out the desk bundle collection by clicking here.
