Introduced into the general office market in 2010, sit-stand desk convertor workstations (SSDCs) are designed to upgrade existing traditional fixed-height desks into height-adjustable platforms for computers. SSDCs are an important tool for businesses to consider integrating into existing employee wellness programs, as scientific research has proven there are inherent benefits beyond wellness to getting employees on their feet more throughout the workday — including increased productivity, efficiency and focus. Unfortunately, many sit-to-stand convertor products have come into the market with serious ergonomic, quality and safety deficiencies. Dr. Ergun and Dr. Segar will provide guidelines for ergonomists, and buyers to evaluate these workstations.
You’ll learn how to:
• Discuss principles of designing and testing of a professional-grade SSDC
• Propose SSDC safety standards
• Establish criteria to evaluate SSDCs
