The next option, and the best option is a table riser; the Electronic Height Adjustable Desk Workstation by Express Office Furniture. This is basically a height adjusting table with 4 presets that you can set at your most used heights as well as up and down buttons to raise and lower the desktop to whatever height you want. These workstations are not only the most convenient but they are affordable for professionals who work at a desk all day.
They come in numerous different sizes from large to small, narrow or deep. Some popular choices are 48” x 24”, 60” x 30” and 72” x 30”. The table top can be adjusted from 28 inches high to 46 inches high. These are available with silver metal legs and a top in the finish of your choice including White, Cherry, Modern Walnut, Dark Walnut, Espresso, Mahogany, Gray Speckle and Tiger Stripe. The max capacity of this workstation is 220 lbs. You can easily install a dual or triple monitor workstation onto the desktop and wire management options are available for keeping cable clutter to a minimum.
If you need the height adjustable workstation in an L shape, the Versatile by Harmony Collection offers all of the same features as the electronic workstation by Express Office Furniture but comes with a two piece desktop, one as a “pork chop” shape and the other a return in just about whatever size you would need. Though more expensive, a workstation like this will offer you more space for paperwork and offer your come convinces that a straight height adjustable workstation won’t be able to provide. The weight capacity of this desk is a whopping 470 pounds.
Another alternative by Harmony Collection is a heavy duty height adjustable workstation which can support 380 pounds, comes in black or silver metal legs and a controller with up and down functions. The downside to this workstation is that it does not have any presets so you will have to manually adjust the table top height every time you want to adjust your workstation height. On the upside, the Essential can support more weight and can be used in applications where tools or other heavy weight objects will be placed on it.
If you want to save some money but still want the benefits of a large work surface that isn’t cluttered with a desktop riser, you can consider a manual crank workstation where you adjust the height by manually spinning the crank shaft with a handle. This handle conveniently stores away when you have found the working height you want however if you are going to adjust the height of the table top several times a day, the task of raising and lowering will become tedious and leave you wishing you had invested in an option with an electric motor. These also have numerous desktop size options and have silver metal legs.
Monitor arms can be easily installed onto any desk riser or height adjustable workstation. The easiest way to do this is to buy the clamp version that simply clamps onto the edge of any desktop. These are available in single or dual monitor options. You can also purchase these to install in pre-drilled desktop grommets or if you are comfortable with drills and saws, you can modify your laminate desktop to mount your monitor arms wherever is most convenient for you. In most cases, this would be front and center on your desktop where in most cases there is no pre-drilled grommet. Locally, we offer modification services, if you need this done, aren’t in the area and aren’t comfortable making the modification yourself we recommend to contact a local carpenter who will make short work of the project.
Ergonomic monitor arms should always be considered at any workstation, there are numerous reasons for this but most importantly is for you comfort and to reduce strain in your neck and shoulders. Proper installation will have you looking straight forward, not up or down. This will help you to keep your body squared up to your workstation and allow you to complete your work without muscle strain. Considering the amount of benefit monitor arms add to a workstation, this is the number one place to get bang for your buck in desk ergonomics.
This dual monitor mount offers heavy duty steel construction with wire management, height adjustment settings and easy to move articulating arms.
A single monitor mount provides similar benefits of a dual monitor mount and can help free up workspace on your desktop by removing the footprint of the OEM monitor mount and lifting the monitor up and off your desk.
For mounting to your desk, both the single and dual monitor arms can be purchased as grommet mount or desk edge clamping, whichever is more convenient for you.

So many people worry about what kind of chair they are sitting in, is it ergonomic?? Long story short, it’s time to focus on getting out of your chair! You can literally spend over a thousand dollars on a high end ergonomic chair but it is not going to solve your back, neck or shoulder pain. Sure it may be comfortable but sitting in any chair for a long period of time is eventually going to result in muscle strain. So, even though we would like to stress that you have an ergonomic chair, we will also stress that it is the last thing we want you to focus on.
