A height-adjustable desk that has your back

If you feel good, you work better. Create an ergonomic workspace with a sit/stand desk that lets you change positions often. The important thing to remember is to move often and sit down from time to time too.

How high should a desk be?

50-70cm is the standard height of most computer desks, which fits most people’s needs.

To work out which height will be most comfortable for you, consider how tall you are, and what type of desk chair you sit on. Here are a few tips to help you:

  • When sitting down, the top of the desk should be in line with your elbows and you should be able to rest your arms on it at a 90-degree angle.
  • From the underside of the desk to the top of your knees, you should have approximately a 35-40 cm gap. And from the bottom of the desk to the floor it should be roughly 60 cm.
  • Don’t forget, your height and sitting position can impact your optimal desk height, but ergonomic design features can help with supporting your body and preventing fatigue.
  • Still not sure which desk height to go for? Sit at a desk or dinner table and measure the height to make a calculated choice.
