Dutch term or phrase: groter werkplekbereik
Context: (handleiding voor) onderzoek (interview) naar zit-sta-producten en de besluitvorming (voor aanschaf) daarover.
Zin is: "We gaan ook in op het beslissingsproces voor zit-sta-producten en producten voor een groter werkplekbereik, zoals ergonomische producten."

Hoe moet ik dit zien, groter werkplekbereik?

Ik zie maar 3 keer werkplekbereik op google:
400 Lux in het werkplekbereik en een nalooptijd van vijf minuten voor de verlichting
Werkplekbereik: 910 mm x 625 mm
Standaard uitvoering horizontale uitblaas Luchtdebiet: Werkplekbereik:

Ik heb de indruk dat de tekst hier en daar wat moeizaam ('duur') geschreven is en het kan best zijn dat het als volgt gelezen moet worden: we gaan het hebben over het beslissingsprocess voor zs-producten en andere producten voor de werkplek, zoals ergonomische producten.

Of zie ik dat te simpel (het is nogal een vertaalslag)? Of creëren de bedoelde producten een betere werkplek of efficiënter gebruik van ruimte? Andere ideeëen?

Iedereen de beste wensen voor 2017!

agree  Michael Beijer: given the context, something along these lines seems to be very likely. I actually have one of those electrically adjustable sit/stand desks, and it's fantastic!

"Workstation Design

Working Reaches ______________________________________________
• Loading on the muscles of the wrist is increased when the reach distance to the keyboard, mouse, or other devices on the desk causes awkward or static postures of the wrist.
Working Heights
• Loading on the muscles of the wrist increases when the keyboard is at the incorrect height. Having the keyboard in positions too low or too high for the worker can place the wrist in an awkward posture, putting additional stress on the tendons and other tissues of the wrist."
