For the past few weeks, I have been using the Flexispot Comhar all-in-one standing desk in my home office so today I want to share my thoughts and findings with you should you be looking to invest in a new desk for your office.
Flexispot Comhar is an electric standing desk that has been designed for the modern professional. The company offers a wide range of products, from the best standing desks on the market to desk converters, desk bikes and even office furniture.
The human body was not designed to work in a seated position for a solid 8+ hours a day. It is estimated that 60% of adults suffer from some sort of chronic pain related to too much sitting. The traditional desk setup with a large desktop monitor and keyboard can cause physical discomfort, fatigue and even permanent health conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome and back injury.
What is a Standing Desk?
A standing desk is a workstation that can be adjusted to different heights. They are designed to allow workers to stand up while working. There are many benefits of using a standing desk. It helps the worker stay in shape, it reduces muscle fatigue and it helps reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases to name just a few.
Standing desks come in various shapes and sizes. Some have a wide surface area for a monitor, keyboard, mouse and other accessories, while others are just small enough for laptop use only. The height can be adjusted at the push of a button from as low as 29 inches to a desk height of 51 inches or more depending on the type of standing desk you buy.
What’s the Difference Between a Convertible and an All-In-One Standing Desk?
There are two main types of standing desks: a full standing desk and desk converters. A full standing desk is just like it sounds – a desk that can be used as both a sitting or standing position. A converter is an adjustable-height workstation that can be converted into a sitting or standing desk by adding the appropriate accessories.
A standing desk converter workstation can be more expensive than an all-in-one because it requires more parts to function properly. However, it also has the potential to offer greater flexibility in terms of height adjustment and ergonomic positioning.
Choosing a Height Adjustable Workstation
A height-adjustable workstation can make a big difference in the way you feel throughout the day. It’s not just about how you feel physically, but also mentally.
Height-adjustable workstations like the Flexispot Comhar all-in-one are becoming more and more popular these days because they allow people to sit or stand as they please, which can help improve their health.
There are many different kinds of height-adjustable workstations on the market today, some of which are better than others for certain people. One thing that is important to note is that there are two main types of height-adjustable desks: those with a sit/stand option and those with a single fixed height.
This is also beneficial if you have a shared working space with your family or co-workers because the height can be adjusted to suit each person independently and with the programmable height presets, you don’t even need to remember the perfect height setting for you.
FlexiSpot Comhar Design and Build Quality
The Flexispot Comhar eg8 office desk is an innovative design that has been carefully engineered to be a high-quality solid desk with a metal frame and a weight limit of 50KG. It is a great desk that doesn’t take up much space at all, my office actually feels bigger since adding the Comhar. My only preference would have been the addition of a cable management net underneath, though they did provide two cable-tie clips in the box, which are doing the job well.
Digital control panel with 4 programmable height presets
Customized with 4 programmable height presets, the Comhar is perfect for multiple users to save their preferred height setting in a family or work share environment. The transition between sitting and standing easily and smoothly with just a single touch of a button.
Wider adjustable height range
Designed with families in mind, this Flexispot desk has a wider adjustment range than others. The lowest setting is 28.3″ rising to 47.6″ making it even perfectly compatible with the height of children.
Embedded desk drawer
A convenient pull-out drawer embedded in the desktop provides seamlessly integrated storage space for your home office supplies. The modern design blends in perfectly with the rest of the structure while keeping your belongings out of sight and neatly put away!
3 Convenient USB ports (2x USB Type-A, 1x USB-c port) are embedded in the desk to charge a wide range of electronic devices, saving you all the mess & hassle of entangled cords in your under-desk space and keeping your devices powered throughout the day.
Tempered Glass Top
The modern tempered glass top is finished with rounded edges for safety, comfort and durability whilst maintaining an elegant and stylish appearance.
Perfect Size for Small Spaces
The Comhar is ideal for those who feel they do not have enough room for a big desk as it takes up minimal floor space while offering one of the most spacious desktops available. A nook, corner or empty wall is all that’s needed to fit Comhar for building your little corner office in the comfort of your home.
Safe Lock Button
The digital control panel has a child lock, perfect if you have children or pets who like to get involved when you are working.
The desk riser has a sensor which will prevent the desk from crushing items underneath when in motion.
How I use my FlexiSpot Desk
When you are busy it can be easy to lose track of time and only remember to stand when you start to feel pain. For that reason I have found it is best to set a timer for 60 minutes to sit, followed by 20 minutes to stand. Sometimes when I stand, I put my music on and dance around at the same time (providing I am not writing). This really helps with blood flow and getting my body moving. I even manage to add a few steps to my daily count for added bonus!
