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.
An important indication of quality is the thickness of the desk top. Thickness can vary between 18mm and 30mm depending on the quality of the desk. This can determine the rigidity of the desk and 25mm minimum is recommended unless the office desk has a strong under-frame. The leg style of the desk can also affect the strength and rigidity of the product. Cantilever leg office desks are an entry level style offering plenty of leg room, usually at low cost.
The first thing that you must do is evaluate your needs. Do you simply need a desk to hold your computer, or will you need a space to layout multiple pages and other items? Look at how much office equipment you have. Do you have a computer, printer, fax, phone, photocopier, scanner and more? Or perhaps you simply have a laptop and nothing more? This will be the first major deciding factor - how much desk space do you actually need? It is also important to look at the space where you will be putting your desk. Is your office large, and able to accommodate a large desk? Or do you need to squeeze into a tiny area? It is a good idea to take measurements before you go out shopping, because this will save you a lot of time in the long run.
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."
