This Transformable Sit-to-Stand Desk Is Making It Easier to Work Healthy
You know how bad sitting all day is for you, right? So standing up for your health, via a sit-stand desk, is a great way to get off your bum and still get your work done… in theory. Actually plunking down the cash and making the move, however, can be a bit expensive. Enter the new QuickStand Eco Desk ($399), designed by Humanscale, that blasts through any excuses you may try to come up with.
Bob King, CEO and founder of Humanscale, tells Brit + Co, “QuickStand Eco is next generation in portable sit-to-stand products. We make it easier than ever to transform any fixed desk into an active workstation and integrate movement and wellness into your workday.” Basically, they’ve turned your desk into a health station for not a lot of moolah.
Let’s say you’ve committed to the standing desk but are, well, tired of standing? No problem. Just lower it to the height that works best for your chair by easily sliding the desktop up and down. There are no annoying knobs or levers to adjust.
“We developed a unique trademarked ‘continuous force’ counter-balance mechanism to move from sitting to standing, and back, in an instant,” King says. “Plus, the self-locking work surface keeps your equipment stable at any height, and ensures that you work in an ergonomically correct position.”
Sleek and simple in design, the desk boasts 18 inches of workspace. It can be used at home or in an office, and it’s lightweight and simple to initially set up, making it easy to move from one place to another.
The desks are eco-friendly too. They’re made with sustainable materials, meaning no formaldehyde or PVC. So not only is using one good for your health; it’s good for the Earth as well.
