Pressed for space? The UpLift 975 brings sit-stand ergonomics with a smaller footprint

So let’s assume for a second that you are interested in ergonomics (not an unreasonable assumption, since you’re currently reading an ergonomics blog). And let’s also assume you’ve done your research and realize the long-term health and productivity benefits of ditching your old desk and upgrading to a sit-to-stand height-adjustable workstation. But here’s where our hypothetical veers off-course, into the darkest timeline, because let’s also assume that you don’t have the space, budget, or inclination to opt for a two-leg height-adjustable desk. Indeed, I talk to a few people every day in this very predicament. For them, even something as affordable and well-reviewed as the UpLift 900 is simply not a realistic option. Fortunately, we have an alternative: the pedestal desk!

Available as the standard UpLift 970 or the smaller, faster-shipping UpLift 975, the pedestal desk is an option for people who want to gain the health benefits of standing while they work, but are not able to fit a two-leg UpLift 900 into their existing work area. There can be plenty of awesome perks to using a pedestal desk, but there are some drawbacks too. Hopefully, this post will give you a better idea of what to expect from your shiny new pedestal desk!
