The appeal of a standing desk is to get the body out of a sedentary lifestyle by providing an option that allows for more movement throughout the day. However, they can be expensive, especially if the current desk isn't in need of replacement. So an affordable alternative is a viable option to consider.
A desk riser, also known as a desk converter, allows for a traditional desk to have a standing option. The desk riser typically provides two surfaces. One for the monitor and the second is a keyboard tray that allows for a seamless transition from sitting to standing. The desk riser offers this transition with either a push of a button automatic shift, or a pneumatic manual pull up to a standing position.
Our desk risers provide a new way to work at the office by getting the body moving throughout the workday. This can have a profound impact on the quality of life that we live. A little movement goes a long way, so the desk riser could be the beginning of a lifestyle change that completely changes the course of your life. At a minimum, it will get you out of a chair for part of your day. Both are wins against a deskbound lifestyle.
