For an example, letís consider the dispatch environment. The workstation paradigm is a split-level adjustable table system made of two movable surfaces (monitor and keyboards) and metal legs. It provides space for monitors, keyboards and mice and perhaps room for CPUs and radios. This standard was created by those furniture manufacturers who wanted to separate themselves from standard desk manufacturers. And of course with any specialty product, the price is never commensurate with the cost of manufacturing. It does the job but really would you want to sit at a table for eight hours a day, five days a week?
The good designer on the other hand, thinks outside of the box and considers many other factors like appearance, armís reach, usable workspace, storage, safe operation, sound suppression and the many creature comfort options available that allow the operator to work comfortably and efficiently in an environment that is more conducive to people. Such is the case with Americonís Sit-Stand workstations that take all of these factors into consideration.
