The choice between table or keyboard tray is dependent upon what tasks are done while at the computer and an individual's leg clearance. (See Keyboard Trays below.)
Height Adjustable Tables:
Most need to be assembled and height adjusted. If you plan to use a keyboard tray, you must order a table that is no less than 24" wide because the track for the keyboard tray is almost 22" deep.

| IKEA GALANT DESKS |
Galant model desks can be personalized with a selection of four surfaces veneers, tabletop shapes and sizes, tabletop extensions, and leg styles. We recommend either the height adjustable "A" legs or the height adjustable "T" legs. The "A" legs with casters are not height adjustable and result in a worksurface that is much too high for safe computer work.

Lifetime height adjustable table. Very sturdy. Can support a desktop monitor. The main drawback to this table is that it has crossbars under the table, so the user will need to use something like the Powerboard Lapboard for keyboard and mouse use on the lap. There is no legroom under this table, but it's OK for either a laptop or desktop monitor.
Table-Mate II. This small compact table adjusts to 6 different heights and the table top can be set at 2 different angles. This isn't strong enough to support a monitor, but it's an inexpensive way to have a worksurface at home to support your keyboard and mouse at the correct height. It folds down when not in use. White plastic surface with white metal legs or new woodgrain.

|Ergotron Workfit-S Sit/Stand Workstation|
The Ergotron WorkFit-S model workstation clamps to any work surface that is 0.4" to 2.4" thick. It allows sit-stand height adjustment of the monitor and keyboard up to 18" in tandem with an additional monitor height adjustment of 5". The only limitation is that the distance from the keyboard to the monitor is not adjustable, that is, the keyboard tray does not slide forward and backward. A counterbalanced adjustment arm allows for instant adjustment from sit to standing height without knobs, levers, or tools. Single or dual monitor versions available as well as single monitor and laptop side-by-side. Two different models of each style is available depending on your monitor weight. There is an optional document holder or worksurface that can be purchased for either the dual or single monitor models. The document holder can be used to hold a laptop computer or tablet PC/iPad also. The document holder installs in 3 different positions to ensure a perfect fit under laptop or displays. The back-tilt keyboard platform has a mouse platform that attaches to either the left or right side.

The thickness of the work surface may place the keyboard and mouse too high for some people even when the work surface is adjusted as low as possible. A keyboard tray is needed if an individual has no clearance between the forearm and the thigh.
The keyboard tray should hold the mouse and keyboard at the same height, that is, it must be at least 25" long, see the 6G500 model shown below, or the keyboard tray must have a separate mouse platform just above the number keys, as the 6G941RG below.
