As a student, possibly you have been at your study desk for long hours as the restrictions on mobility open up slowly during the pandemic. As a student, you have been tied up at home, attending virtual classrooms. With long hours studying or spent on gaming or being on your computer, you are sure to be tired.
Even if your schools have opened up, you have little choice but to use the study desks provided. This limits you to use correct body posture as turn around, push or pull things, pick-up, lift or drop things when at school.
Pros and cons of regular study desks
Regular study desks are made for the average height of the person (around 5’5” to 5’10”). If you are taller or shorter, the chances are that the desk is too high or low for you to sit and use. Pros include ease of availability, fits the average height student, and economical.
On the cons, lowering or raising your head to look at a computer screen (including reading books) causes stress and strain on your body muscles, especially your neck, back, and shoulders. This is common for folks who are taller or shorter than most others. There are additional health concerns that students have reported.
Why? Being generic, they are not adjustable to each user’s specific body needs. Result? Pains and aches and ill health for the user result in larger health concerns like cervical issues, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, or an RSI (repetitive syndrome injury). Add sedentary lifestyles that add to the woes of a quick recovery.
What is the solution?
A student ergonomic desk is one of the best solutions. What does it do? It offers a student greater flexibility (to sit or stand) and works at their will. So when they are tired of sitting and working, they can easily raise the desk to stand and work and vice versa.
