What problems should be paid attention to when using the electric lifting table?
Now, using electric lifting tables in the office has become the new normal. Electric lifting tables have emerged in offices around the world, because people are beginning to realize the benefits of standing instead of sitting every day. The electric lifting table is a good tool, which can promote your health and improve work efficiency and team work. However, you must pay attention to maintaining the correct standing and sitting postures. When using the electric lifting table you should avoid the following common mistakes.
1. Standing for too long.
Many people are believe that if you have an electric lifting table, you need to stand all day long. This is not the case. It’s suggested that you stand for 2 hours a day from the beginning, and then gradually increase to 4 hours a day, and switch between standing and sitting.
2. The height of the electric lifting table is incorrect.
Even when sitting, many people's desks are not as high as they fit their bodies, but standing up desks will look strange if they are not at the right height.
How high should the electric lifting table be? Recommended height:
A good rule is to keep your elbows at an angle of no less than 90 degrees, and the screen is at or below the line of sight. When you encounter difficulties in your daily work, or you feel that your daily work is not going properly, it’s another case. The monitor stand specially designed for standing desks allow you to adjust the height of the computer monitor independently of keyboard height , so as to help you maintain a correct standing posture.
3. There is no anti-fatigue mat.
If you find that your feet are particularly painful throughout the day while standing, it may be that your way is wrong. Putting the mat beneath your feet not only provides you with a comfortable place to stand on, but also helps you to relax you leg muscle and alleviate your fatigue.
4. Poor postures.
Postures are very important to our health, but we can easily neglect them every day. Incorrect standing posture may cause back pain as sitting does. From whole body fatigue to vasoconstriction, it can also cause various health problems. To improve working posture, you can:
Stand, holding head backward and keeping hips vertical, and the spine is curved in an "S" shape.
Adjust the height of the monitor by your eyes. Your eyes should be 50-70 cm away from the monitor screen and the monitor should be tilted 20 degrees.
