Why a Standing Desk?
Research shows standing desks have many health benefits including relieving back pain and burning extra calories. I became interested in standing desks after a car accident left me with back pain, but I was surprised to see how expensive they were! Instead of buying one, I built my own from parts I had on hand.
After colleagues showed interest in my homemade desk, I realized there were other people like me who wanted an inexpensive standing desk solution.
The Stand Steady
This desk is affordable, comfortable, and compatible with your existing desk.
- Keep your exiting desk: The Stand Steady sits on top of your existing desk, so there is need no need to replace the desk you already have!
- Your correct height: Snap buttons are set in one inch increments to allow you to adjust the desk to your correct ergonomic height
- Extra storage space: The Stand Steady actually increases desk space because you use the space on top of it for your computer and the area under it for storage or files
- Affordably priced: At under $100, this is the most affordable standing desk on the market. Other models are priced from $400 to $1600, and many require you to replace your existing desk.
- Lean with confidence: The desk does not slide when you lean on it. So lean with confidence!
- Compatible with monitor arms: The sturdy Stand Steady can easily support your monitor arm and other office equipment
- Exercise while you work: You can even use a small elliptical while working on your computer
