Accommodation of the Month – Accessible Desks

Posted On:

Wheelchairs and scooters have become common accommodations for individuals with varying degrees of mobility disabilities. While design features like ramps, elevators, and wide doorways make buildings wheelchair accessible, employees spend the majority of the workday at their desks. How can you tailor a workstation to the needs of an employee with a mobility disability?

Wheelchair-accessible computer tables, such as those from Zero Gravity Tables, offer an ergonomically-designed, fully-customizable solution to your accessible workstation needs. The electric lift system raises and lowers the desk quickly and quietly, anywhere from 24 to 50 inches. An illuminated dashboard containing four programmable soft-touch buttons allows for easy adjustment. Sturdy metal legs with reinforced steel footings are set far enough apart to permit comfortable clearance for wheelchairs and scooters, and the under-desk cable management solution keeps cords off of the floor and away from the mobility device.

The scratch-resistant work surface is available in four finishes, including the innovative whiteboard finish which allows for notetaking and diagraming right on the desk. A variety of adjustable keyboard trays and monitor mounts are also available. If desired, an optional wheel kit can be added to make the entire workstation mobile.

This affordable solution can ensure that your workspace is able to accommodate your talented employees with mobility disabilities.
