Here is a challenging assignment then. Everyone, no matter what they do, what kind of lifestyle they lead, where they live, and where they work, will at some stage of their fairly active lives be using a table, some, more so than others. And for some, these tables are more important than others. Why should it be such a challenging assignment finding the correct table at which to work or eat or study? There is the effort that goes into finding the correct table. You might think that the table you have is quite alright, but when you think about it, maybe not always.
Have you ever thought about table ergonomics? Just as it is important to be seated in an ergonomically efficient office or dining chair, it is as important to have a table in front of you at correct length, correct height, and correct weight. And in some professional cases, there is simply no compromise. Having the correct surgical tables in surgery rooms or operating theaters is never up for negotiation. Given the kind of work that is being done this is quite important. There are many factors riding against or, preferably, in favor of the surgical table.
It certainly has to be constructed with the correct materials. It cannot be allowed to buckle or break, especially not during an intense operation. The legs are ideally made from non-enforceable metal. And the entire structure should not be too light in weight. Particularly during surgical procedures, the table cannot be allowed to move or shift. Can you imagine what could go wrong when this happens and the surgeon is about to apply his scalpel? And if you were to be a patient, you dare not imagine this happening.
