Non-Electric Standing Desks
When shopping for a desk, there are three main adjustment categories. Electric desks, our most popular options, are easily moved with the push of a button and offer the heaviest weight capacities. These desks are powered by motors that are discreetly located within the desk bases and make little noise while operating. If you plan on adjusting your desk frequently, we strongly recommend an electric adjustment mechanism.
If you are unable to place your standing desk near an outlet, we also offer pneumatic and crank adjustable-height desks, shown below. Pneumatic desks function with a hydraulic gas cylinder and lift easily by hand. Crank adjustable-height desks operate with a mechanical crank lift turned by hand. We do not recommend crank desks if you plan to adjust your desk height often.

According to a 2012 study by the Pennington Biomedical Research Center, prolonged sitting is linked to 170,000 cases of cancer each year. All-day sitting, they conclude, is as unhealthy as obesity or smoking.
