Ergonomic furniture is more popular than ever, and for good reason. Investing in the health of you and your employees means a more productive, safer working environment. So it is no surprise that a number of incredible products are appearing on the market. Join us as we discuss the new office furniture on offer from the experts at Conset.
Why Ergonomic Furniture?
Studies have shown that working in a sitting position for an extended amount of time impacts your health. In fact, a study from the journal for Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise found that those who sit for the majority of the day are over 50% more likely to die of heart attacks. This study involved 1700 people over a period of 13 years. It found that even those who didn’t smoke and got regular exercise were still at risk of heart attacks. This correlated with sitting for long periods at a time.
In fact, standing for periods of the day can be the simplest and most effective method to increase productivity, combat mental fatigue, ease back pain and control weight gain. Conset took this research and designed a line of electric, height-adjustable desks. These desks give you the power to transform how you live and work. The aim is to ensure those purchasing Conset furniture enjoy a long, healthy life.
Creating Your Ergonomic Desk
Conset’s design team has created a wide variety of different designs and frames to match any work environment. When choosing your desk, it is important to consider the load and task required. Over time, your desk becomes loaded with magazines, books, printers, scanners and a dozen other items of office miscellanea. So when choosing the load bearing weight of your desk, it is always safest to go with the heaviest option your budget allows.
Consider what you are using your desk for, as well, when picking the best option for your office. Do you require the firmest stability and a desk that doesn’t move often? Or a desk that is easy to move to other areas of your home or office? Further, consider the length of your work hours or if the desk will be used for multiple shifts to ensure your desk lasts well beyond the warranty period. For example, if you have a 60kg load, then a 100kg frame will last far longer than an 80kg frame.
Conset desks have a variety of designs combined with a modern, minimalist look. Conset desks feature open frame structures designed for strength with a square or round column leg and slender foot design. They work with a variety of configurations. Further it is engineered to create a strong and durable desk for any office environment. They are quick and easy to assemble, making them a complete desk at an affordable price. One motor does it all, allowing you to seamlessly adjust your desk to any height with ease. The ergonomic designs from Conset are an example of design and function perfectly paired.
