There are a number of guidelines for and opinions concerning the correct positioning of your desk combined with your chair. All experts do, however, agree that the most important thing is to change working position often. Below you will find some rules of thumb for choosing your table / top:

  • The table must be height adjustable so that it can be adjusted to the individual, making it possible to place screen, keyboard, and mouse at a suitable height.
  • The table must be deep enough (min. 31.5 inches) to allow for the screen to be placed at an optimum distance from the user, and so when working the mouse the whole forearm can rest on the table.
  • The table must be wide enough to leave space on both sides of the keyboard for putting things down.
  • The table must deep enough so that both wrists and forearms can rest in front of the keyboard. 
  • Underneath the table the construction should leave space for the legs to move freely.
  • When a user is engaged in prolonged reading it is advantageous for the table to be placed in a sloping position.
