The Stand-Up Desk Kit

A Stand-Up Desk Kit is an adjustable desk surface that sits on top of a desk, converting your desk into a standing desk.
It is the most attractive and simplest way to start standing at work.

There are four adjustable legs, which allow for various heights. At its lowest, the Stand-Up Desk Kit work surface stands 12 inches above the surface it sits on. At its highest setting, the desk will be 17 inches above the original work surface. The adjustable legs, adjust in inch-high increments. We have three standard sized desk surfaces; Or we can customize the size to make sure you get just what you need.

Each Stand-Up Desk Kit is made of high quality MDF wood, then we seal it with a custom pattern of your choice. Our adjustable legs are made out of the same plastic as motorcycle helmets and are available in white or black.

Our Story

Why did we create a Stand-Up Desk conversion kit? We are two developers who've spent a large part of the last decade sitting in our chairs, at our desks. We started seeing people around our office sit on bouncy balls, order funny or weird chairs, and build their own stand-up desks. At the same time, we started noticing increased back pain and increasing flab around our waists.

One day, we came across some articles about the health concerns with sitting for extended periods of time. It was then that we decided we should get stand-up desks. Together, we pitched to our facilities manager the idea of getting rid of our desks and getting cool electric power-drive stand-up desks that let you stand or sit for part of the day. After seeing the cost of those units and explaining that the company already had invested in our current desks, our facilities manager told us there was pretty much no way we were going to get some nice stand-up desks. We were bummed. AND we kept seeing info graphics like this one telling us that we were slowly killing ourselves by sitting all day.

We set up our own stand-up desks using plywood and trash cans. They looked a lot like the Do-it-yourself-style stand-up desks like the ones you see online. Not surprisingly, the desks looked like a pile of junk. Besides giving us splinters, they worked fine. One thing we really didn't like was the fixed size of the trash cans. They were just an inch too tall. We set out to create an entry-level stand-up desk that no facilities manager could refuse.

After a couple of failed kickstater campaigns, news appearances, many prototypes, and lots of hard work, the Stand-Up Desk Kit is the most attractive and most affordable way to start standing while you work or to expand the number of standing work stations you offer.

Our Feelings

Sitting for long periods of time at work was making us fat, slow, and unhappy. We noticed that we didn't have much energy when we got home to the people we wanted to spend time with.

Research

There are a number of studies showing that being more active throughout the day has positive results, both physically and mentally. We loved this study done by Men's Health and other pilot programs done in schools.

Our Results

After switching to a standing work station, we immediately noticed increased mental sharpness and more energy. It's hard not to move more when you're standing. This has led to personal weight loss, no more back pain and more spontaneous dancing.

Action

After noticing the positive results we had, we wanted to get a more professional-looking setup and help others who were in a similar situation to us. In our spare time, we found geniuses to help us, and we created the Stand-Up Desk Kit. Order yours today!

Please help, you’re our only hope!

What people think of the Stand-Up Desk Kit

I’ve lost 35lbs standing at work and I love my Stand-Up Desk Kit!

The desk is very attractive and sturdy – I’m very excited to start changing the way I work (although, as my legs and feet have already determined, it will take a little getting used to). Love the desk so far, thanks for developing such a great product!

Absolutely love it!

Good Morning! It’s 10 am, and I’m fully set up and loving my new desk! The desk is very stable, does not move on the table at all, and I love the angled front for your arms! I have no suggestions for improvement, whatsoever, and look forward to showing off my new office!

I’m really enjoying it! I know that I will need a larger one if our office decides to buy a bunch of them. I have quite a few people very interested in them. Thanks for an awesome desk!!

It took no more than 4 minutes to open and 10 minutes to set up … and it looks great! Super job on the construction and design! Could not be more pleased! Now thinking to get one for the office as well.
