What makes a good ergonomic desk? Under the desk, make sure there’s clearance for your knees, thighs and feet. If the desk is too low and can’t be adjusted, place sturdy boards or blocks under the desk legs. If the desk is too high and can’t be adjusted, raise your chair. Use a footrest to support your feet as needed.
Are ergonomic desks worth it? While the science is still catching up, the existing research strongly points in the direction that standing desks simply aren’t worth the investment. Sit-stand desks, however, do show some promise, which ultimately belies the underlying point: the real issue is structural, and not related to your desk.
What is the most ergonomic way to sit at a desk? Adjust the chair height so your feet are flat on the floor and your knees are in line (or slightly lower) with your hips. Sit up straight and keep your hips far back in the chair. The back of the chair should be somewhat reclined at a 100- to 110-degree angle. Ensure the keyboard is close and directly in front of you.
