Standing tables for more health and productivity

The right desk height can greatly influence productivity, energy levels and the quality of work. Anyone who spends many hours at a desk should therefore make sure that the workplace is ergonomically designed. An improperly set up work environment leads to health problems over time.
Around 80 percent of all people suffer from back pain at least once in their lives. One in ten absences from work due to illness can be attributed to this. The reason often lies in incorrect posture and sitting stationary for too long. Standing tables offer a simple way to get around this problem.

How can standing tables help?

Standing tables as work tables

Factors such as desk top and chair height in relation to the desk can help prevent injuries, pain and even future health consequences. If a desk is not optimized for a person's height, numerous problems can arise:

  • Dissatisfaction and irritability
  • Tension and chronic poor posture
  • Decreasing work quality and concentration, leading to inefficiency
  • Motivation problems due to monotonous physical stress
  • Circulation problems

The use and benefits of standing desks in the work environment, as well as in other settings, are therefore obvious. Here are some important reasons for a standing desk:

  • reduces the risk of heart disease
  • promotes healthy muscles
  • protects spine, ankles and knees
  • a positive impact on health promote general motivation
  • promotes mental activity
  • prevents chronic diseases
  • protects against obesity
  • increases efficiency
  • helps to reduce sick days and absenteeism from work
  • people communicate with each other better when standing than when sitting

Which tasks are particularly well suited for standing desks?

More tasks can be performed at standing desks than is often assumed: In fact, most office work can be done just as easily at a high desk as at a low desk. However, it is advisable to get used to alternating between sitting and standing while working. In the beginning, activities such as making phone calls, researching, mailing or brainstorming can be done while standing, so that gradually the habit changes and the alternation between standing and sitting soon becomes routine.

What is the right height of a standing desk?

In a few steps to the high table

The optimal height for a standing desk depends primarily on your height. The taller you are, the higher the desk should be. This applies to both the correct sitting height and the ideal height for a standing desk. This table lists which desk height is best for each body size.

What size should the standing table be?

Body height in cm Table height sitting in cm Table height standing in cm
160 - 171 65 - 69 105 - 112
172 - 181 69 - 73 112 - 118
182 - 191 73 - 77 118 - 124
192 - 201 77 - 81 124 - 128

Even when standing, it is important to maintain a correct position that is conducive to good health: Use the position of the desktop computer or laptop as a starting point and adjust the table to that height. The table should be high enough for the elbows and forearms to rest straight on the table with the upper arms hanging loosely.

If the tabletop is too low, this forces an unnatural curvature of the spine. Conversely, if the table is too high, the shoulder girdle is pushed upwards and the neck and neck muscles are strained during work. The inclination of the head and eyes should be about 30-35°.

Configure your high table correctly

Tips and tricks for your bar table

Follow these tips, whether you're looking for a desk for the commercial workplace or your home office, to properly configure your standing desk:

  1. When setting up the workstation, make sure that there is enough space under the table so that the legs can move freely and the knees cannot bump anywhere.
  2. Consider choosing a matte shade for your desk top to minimize glare in the workplace. Glare can be a significant problem with glass top desks.
  3. Choose a desk design with smooth rounded edges on the desk and legs. Sharp edges can easily cause cuts, bumps and bruises while working.
  4. Choose an adjustable ergonomic desk chair to keep the workspace functioning optimally.

With our 3D configurator you can model the size, shape, color and material according to your personal needs. Our Frama and Arana frames offer you enough space underneath the tabletop and can be integrated into any living style with their clean design.

Tips for everyday work

The work at the standing table

By nature, the human body functions best when it is moving. In everyday office life in particular, sitting for long periods is the predominant position, which often leads to stiffness or joint wear. It has long been known that well-fitted, ergonomic office chairs are indispensable in everyday working life. In addition, it is indispensable to get up and move regularly during the day.

This does not mean that one should only stand, as this extreme is also not healthy, but also often not always possible. Rather, frequent changes in position are recommended, which benefit the body and brain. Changing position and posture occasionally is essential for an alert mind. Some experts recommend sitting 60% of the workday, standing 30%, and actively moving the remaining 10% of the workday.

Change your working position about twice an hour. This way you stay fit, flexible and don't fall into a rigid posture. Regardless of your preferred position, it's clear that a healthy combination of sitting, standing and active movement should be practiced in your daily work routine.

Care for more movement

A complete exercise program or extensive stretching is not always necessary. It's often enough to simply incorporate a little more movement into your office day. For example, try to use the stairs whenever possible instead of taking the elevator. Drinking plenty of water is also a tip that is often neglected, because adequate hydration is not only healthy, but also supports regular walking. Always remember: the human body was designed to keep moving. Walking is among the most natural and important human movements. Therefore, it should be incorporated into the office day as often as possible. Using standing desks helps us achieve this goal more easily.

Use practical accessories to optimize your standing desk

On countless online store sites like Amazon, Ebay, Hornbach or Bueroshop24 you can find practical accessories at a reasonable price to optimize your standing desk. Extras such as a cable socket and a cable duct ensure more order above and below your desk top. Also think about a matching workstation lamp and possibly drawers for the most important utensils.

You can easily store important documents in a metal roll container whose look universally matches any frame of your desk. Keep your work materials easily accessible. For example, you can store stamps, binders, pens and the like in a drawer right under the tabletop, to make them easy to reach while freeing up more space on your desk top.
