Optimization: "Having furniture that allows for proper adjustments does not mean that the adjustments are set correctly," Bakker notes. "Independent studies have demonstrated that the majority of office workers sit in products that can provide sound ergonomics, but they are not adjusted properly, ultimately having an adverse effect on the user. Understanding the relationship between the user, their size and their workload against the settings is critical to lowering or eliminating risk. Providing adjustability can be more harmful to a user when they are not given instructions on how to tailor the furnishings."
Adjustment mechanism: Desks that can be adjusted by the user instead of the facilities department are ideal because they allow each person to choose when to switch modes. Within user-controlled options, electric mechanisms seem to be edging out other options like a turn crank or a pneumatic lift," adds Wammack. "Electric mechanisms also have added features such as presets that an occupant can program for their ideal ergonomic needs. Presets are one way to address the potential for injuries stemming from improper adjustments.
