What's the pain point for most standing desk converters on the market?

Several mainstream US brands provider already noticed this issue and upgrade their sit stand desk converters to make keyboard tray bellow the work surface.

I have to say that most sit stand desk converters on the market are sit on the top of work surface, which can not meet the need for individuals who are shorter than 5′ 11”(180cm) in their seated position.

 

 

Why?

 

The average height for contract desk furniture is 29 inch(736.6mm). The ideal seated typing height(conform to ergonomic posture) for a person with 5’11” (180cm) is 29 inch(736.6mm) off the floor. If you are under 5’11” feet tall, you are mostly not typing at right position.

Note: Population variety can result in dimensions being off by an inch or two.

 

 

The problem?

 

 

Most desk risers will raise seated elbow height for those individuals shorter than 5’11” (180cm).

 

If they put their hands at a higher position, it will cause pain and stress over time.

 

For example, i am 5’2”(158cm) tall. My shoulders are going to shrug if i put my hands on the desktop when the height is 29”.

 

Ideally when we are in seated position we want our hands to be at a much lower position.
