Height-adjustable monitor arms
We’ve all heard by now that elevating your desk (see this blog article from our Environments furniture division) so that you can sit OR stand is great for your body. Constant sitting at your desk can lead to unwanted health effects.
But if you can’t afford a height-adjustable desk, there may be a simpler solution for you: this sit-stand workstation by LCD Arms. It fits on most regular desks, and provides the same flexibility to sit or stand. Please contact your Account Manager for additional details on this product or similar products.
Now, for those who enjoy DIY projects, here are a few options to help create the same standing benefits from your office desk. Of course, some might be difficult to convert back to a regular sitting position.
Attach your monitor to the wall in a higher position to where you can stand. Use a shelf to heighten your keyboard. The problem with this option is your monitor will be stationary and cannot be changed back into a sitting position very easily.
Use a specialized shelf on your desk. You can quickly remove the shelf and be back in a sitting position in no time (although you have to find a place to store the shelf in the meantime).
As a last resort, use a block of wood or bucket to make you monitor higher. Not the prettiest look, but certainly achieves the same benefit of heightening your monitor.
