The benefits of ergonomic office chairs and office tables are many. The first is the comfort factor which allows you to work for long hours without experiencing severe discomfort or joint pains. Ergonomic chairs for example have been built to support the body, especially the spine and neck and have the option to adjust the height, back support etc for added comfort. Also arm rests, which are a standard feature of ergonomic office chairs help in ensuring support to the elbows and arms, especially to someone whose job involves a lot of typing. All these features help in increasing productivity and lowering the health risks for employee at work.
The type of office table that you go for should be highly influenced by your needs. If you will be using a desktop computer, the table that you use should have enough space to install the computer. If you have plenty of things to store, buy a unit with plenty of drawers. The tables come in different shapes such as L-shaped, straight and modular. If you dont have a conference area, buy an L-shaped table that will help you keep your documents organized and at the same time help you arrange your meeting at the table.
Wooden tables being lighter but still can carry heavy weight was used during computer era where the computer terminal, its CPU, UPS and other connecting devices like printer etc were accommodated on a single wooden table, and still being practiced but with an advancement of using PVC coating over the table.
The concept of using tables for employee started during late in the 18th century when paper work and photography increased at the times of war. Earlier, typewriters were used and a lot of paper work was made using the typewriter so an elevated table large enough to accommodate the typewriter and its paper work were built. The very first office desks used were made of steel since steel has high durable strength and can carry heavy weight, being heavy and hard to move this steel table were replaced by wooden tables.
