This Desk Stand will encourage a healthier lifestyle

adjustable height desk

Once you’re a couple months into your first desk job, you understand how important it is to get up and move every now and again. The only problem is, all of your work is done seated, and when you’re in the “zone” you don’t want to stop and stretch your legs out. This could all be fixed by a standing desk, but there are so many on the market that it’s hard to choose one.

Just to make things a little more complicated, here’s another option from Halter with the Adjustable Sit/Stand Elevating Desktop. This goes on top of the desk you already have, so you don’t need to worry about moving your current desk out. The most work it will take from you is moving your monitor, keyboard, and mouse, and then a light squeeze on the handles to get it at the proper height. It comes fully assembled, so you don’t have to worry about IKEA-like instructions either.

You’ll be able to shift from sitting to standing effortlessly, taking only a few seconds to change the orientation. Seeing that it measures 35.6″ lengthwise, it should fit in any office situation whether you have the big-windowed office on the top floor or a teeny cubicle in the basement. It weighs around 47 pounds on its own, and can hold about 44 pounds at one time. This will cost you $239.99, and is sure to at least encourage you to stand a little bit more during the work day.
