Sit Stand Desk Information


As adults, we spend most of our days at work and for those of us who have office jobs, this means sitting down for long periods of time. It contributes to a more sedentary lifestyle and affects our general wellbeing greatly, not to mention our posture. At Ergolab we believe that ergonomic comfort is the key to a healthy, balanced lifestyle, in and out of the office. That is why we trust in the innovative sit-stand desk.

What is a sit-stand desk?

Simply put, a sit-stand desk, or also known as a standing desk, is exactly as the name suggests, a desk that promotes easy movement between sitting and standing positions. A well-designed sit-stand desk adjusts between postures without interrupting your workflow.

Benefits of sit stand desk solutions:

There are countless benefits that come with using a sit-stand desk, so much so that a research project was launched by to prove this. Below is a list of some of the known benefits:

  • A standing desk enables you to adopt a balanced level of activity while you work.
  • Promotes higher levels of productivity.
  • Standing or sit to stand desks help to reduce back/shoulder pain by promoting an improved posture.
  • Increases your level of activity, lowering your risk of heart disease, weight gain, and Type 2 Diabetes.
  • Improves your general wellbeing, mood, and energy levels.

Who doesn’t want an extra pep in their step? The sit-stand desk improves your mental and physical health while you work, and transforms your life in remarkable ways.

Things to consider when choosing a standing desk

If you are ready to improve your lifestyle and make the move to a comfier, healthier workspace, there are some key aspects to consider. When choosing the standing or sit to stand desk that is best suited to your needs you can start off by asking yourself these simple questions:

  • What materials is the standing desk made of?

Humanscale desks are built primarily of top-quality steel and aluminium.

  • What height-range am I looking for?

This will depend on the person using the desk. The Business and Institutional Furniture Manufacturer's Association (BIFMA) suggests a range between 22.6″ to 48.7″.

  • What is the desk’s load capability?

Make sure that the main assembly will be able to hold the weight of your equipment.

  • Does the sit-stand desk comply with safety standards?

Be on the lookout for something like a self-locking mechanism to ensure that your safety is a priority.

  • Do I need a portable sit-stand desk?

These solutions, like the QuickStand ECO, are usually smaller than the complete standing desks, like the Float. Portable desks are easier to carry from one space to another. Both desks have great strengths and benefits, your choice will just depend on your needs.

  • How fast can I move between sitting and standing and will the transition be noisy?

Ideally, you want a simple and quiet transition without the cranking of noisy, slow motors.

Are sit-stand desks really worth it?

Many people might ask if these standing desks are in fact actually worthwhile.
