There are many benefits to using a standing desk, like reduced back pain, improved posture and arguably even increased productivity. Due to these benefits and many more, standing desks are an increasingly popular option for many. To help you out in making your choice, we’ve compiled a list of five great options on the market.

How to pick the best standing desk for you

  • Consider weight capacity – Some desks will have a weight capacity high enough to hold just a few writing utensils and for you to be writing on, but some will be able to hold a heavy laptop or monitor. Decide how you want to use your desk and then make sure it has the ability to hold it all.
  • Consider size – This is important to consider not only because of how much space you have in the area you’re going to put it, but because the surface area of the desk matters.
  • Consider materials – The last thing you want is a standing desk that is easily damaged and not durable.
  • Consider adjustability -  Most working adults likely won’t want to change the height of their standing desk too often, but if you’re buying one that you think multiple people will use, being able to greatly adjust the height of the standing desk is crucial, so that everyone can use it comfortably. You also want one that can go high enough that if you’re staring at a screen, it’s at eye level. This is the best for your posture.

The height is adjusted with a motor list mechanism that allows it to go from 28” to 47.6”. It goes up about an inch per second and isn’t too noisy.
