In order to make the most of your electric lift desk, it is very important to customize the work area to suit your physical needs. From an outsider's point of view, the correct use of electric lifting desks seems to be effortless: stand up and work; sit down and work; just repeat. However, ergonomics is not an exact science, because every human body is different. The optimal height of an electric lift desk is different for you from others, which is a good thing!

Here are some instructions on how to use your body proportions and natural posture to stand correctly. So, what is the correct standing posture when using an electric lift desk?


1. Always adjust the electric lift desk to the height of the elbow

How to do it Bend your elbows at a 90-degree angle, keeping your neck neutral and your wrists straight forward. Raise or lower the standing desk so that your forearms are parallel to the surface of the desk. When your hands float on the keyboard, your wrists should be straight and relaxed. Your fingers can hang down to make contact with the keyboard, but you must not tilt your wrist up or down.

2. Pay attention to your posture

Straighten your neck and relax your shoulders. When standing, make sure to bend your knees slightly to avoid overextension or locking of the joints. Good posture is also called a neutral spine. When we maintain a good posture, the muscles around the spine will balance and support the body equally. Most back pain is attributed to sedentary habits and poor posture.

3. Keep your wrists straight and parallel to the desktop

The final adjustment is to ensure that the wrist remains neutral: fingers can hang down to contact the keyboard, but the wrist must not be tilted up or down. This is because repeated extension and bending (up and down) of the wrist will compress the internal structure of the wrist and increase the risk of carpal tunnel syndrome.

There are two reasons for the body's discomfort when standing, except for physiological reasons such as increased pressure on the legs, muscle fatigue caused by continuous compression of the veins, and slowed metabolism. There are also pathological reasons caused by incorrect standing posture.


Various postures cause the spine to not be in the neutral position, and the overall muscle strength is unbalanced. For example, the forward tilt of the head can easily cause back pain, and the hunchback can easily increase the burden on the lumbar spine and cause low back pain. In addition, obesity, muscle atrophy or weakening, wearing shoes that are too high or too small, etc., will cause discomfort due to uneven body or partial force or overload.

How to adjust the sitting and standing posture is the most suidesk and healthiest. In fact, there is no uniform standard. It needs to be different from person to person, place to place, and time to time. At the same time as everyone is busy with work, keep the awareness of changing posture regularly, and try to achieve healthy sitting and standing postures at the same time. Take appropriate physical exercises after work, pay attention to a healthy diet and rest, maintain a good attitude, then health and happiness will accompany everyone.
