Ergonomischer Bürotisch / Ergonomic Office Desk

Ergonomischer Bürotisch
Ergonomischer Bürotisch

Considering the great numbers of people who have a desk job and the resulting modern epidemic of back pain,
I wanted to improve the conventional office table.
The best way to reduce back pain is to change your posture frequently. This can be achieved by an office desk where you can work at in a sitting as well as in a standing position.
Existing hight-adjustable tables have to be set every single time when the position changes. I am convinced that one would think twice about changing posture if the table has to be readjusted every time. That is why one table which combines a sitting and standing area is a good solution.
