The Situation:
Elbow Height Varies for Males and Females

“Resting elbow height” is the height a desk should be for healthy keyboarding when seated or standing. This can vary greatly between males and females.

The BIFMA standard is a range from 22.6” to 48.7”. Anything less does not meet the standard.
