How to make any table a stand-up desk

1/13/2015

 Those of us who spend large chunks of our days with our fingers on a keyboard quickly learn the importance of ergonomic factors. Is your desk the right height? How close are you to the monitor? Does your chair give you good posture.

Some people prefer to work standing up, a position that can counter back pain and stiffness, not to mention a widening butt. At one point, I used a stack of phone books to raise my laptop, but that turned out to be an unstable and unsatisfactory solution.

Then I met Luke Leafgren at CES, the big technology trade show. That's where I got a look at his StandStand. It's three pieces of nicely finished wood that easily assembles to form a sturdy laptop stand. For stand-up typists, this is the real deal.

When collapsed, the stand is the size of a laptop and weighs about two pounds, making it easy to carry in the same bag as a computer. The three pieces lock together like a puzzle to create a standing desk out of any table or desk.

The stands are available in three different heights and two woods. The Baltic Birch sells for $69 and the Bamboo version for $99.

See the StandStand at work in the video below and get more details at the StandStand website or on Twitter.
