Workers find Relief in the Shrinking American Cubicle

Two trends in today´s business office appear to be on a collision course. The working computer user has an increasing desire for energy and movement to stay healthy at work, while in recent years, while many companies are trying to reducing real estate cost and cram as many people as they can into one area. The new TaskMate Go computer lift is a compact solution that can retrofit any cubicle from a static work place to a dynamic sit to stand work place.

According to the International Facility Management Association, a professional network for the facility management industry, the average office worker had 90 square feet of office space in 1994, but the area had been whittled down to 75 square feet in 2010. On average, estimate show that companies have downsized the cubicle from an 8-by-10 foot area to a 5-by-5 foot work space. Open-space seating found at many companies is becoming a popular “team-oriented” model in the past 10 years too.

Sitting has become so common for today´s workforce that we now see average sit times of 9 hours per day, and many knowledge workers sitting for as much as 15 hours per day. Office inactivity is bad for one´s health and adjustable ergonomic furniture produces a positive return on investment for companies.

The new Taskmate Go from Healthpostures is a sleek cost effective way to enjoy a healthy energetic work-style in the limited space of a cubicle. Just clamp the Taskmate Go to the existing cubicle desk and with a simple squeeze of a lever, the monitor, keyboard, mouse are ready to move into a comfortable standing position. Releasing the lever at the desired height causes the unit to lock into place, giving you a sturdy, height-adjustable computer work station that is compact enough to fit into a cubicle desk. The addition of the TaskMate Go will give computer users in a cubicle setting the freedom of movement in an otherwise confined space while staying on task and help find more energy at work.

HealthPostures´ has been providing sit to stand ergonomic solutions that encourage an energetic work environment since 1999 and will continue to design sit to stand ergonomic products that will help prevent and alleviate pain associated with sitting at work.
