Frame Color and Style
The UPLIFT Height Adjustable Standing Desk frame comes in three color choices and is offered with a cast-molded aluminum foot for extra stability. On T-frame desks the legs are centered on the foot, but our legs are offset to the rear of the feet on the C-frame. This allows 3.5'' of extra mounting space underneath the front of the desk for installation of a longer keyboard tray track or other accessories. The advanced design of the cast-molded aluminum C-frame foot also gives you a slightly more stable desk than a T-frame, since the C-frame foot has built-in strengthening ribs on the bottom that resist deflection and movement.
Finding the right height preferences for you at your new adjustable height desk can be revitalizing. Another benefit of using a standing desk is the ability to sit in a more ergo-friendly position for your body, ideally with your keyboard and mouse on your lap or within your Neutral Reach Zone. This is different for everyone, but UPLIFT's height range of 24.5'' - 50.5'' means that it will work for 99% of the population!
Most height adjustable desks on the market are stabilized with a two-stage frame, which has lower minimum and maximum heights, limiting your ability to adjust to your perfect height if you're taller or shorter than average. UPLIFT's three-stage frame goes both lower and higher, giving you the ability to adjust your desk height even more so you can keep working comfortably whether sitting or standing.
Our competitors offer height extensions at a premium, while ours comes standard when you choose an UPLIFT adjustable height desk. Invest in a desk that will uplift your office for years to come, helping you and your coworkers to reach the highest peaks of productivity.
UPLIFT Desks come standard with a basic Push and Hold Two Button Up/Down Keypad, or upgrade to the Advanced 1-Touch Keypad with 4 Memory Positions and Digital Height Display. Its digital readout allows you to make precision adjustments to get your desk to exactly the height you need, then auto-dims to save power. Once you find the perfect sitting and standing heights, four programmable memory presets allow you to save those and then return to them with just one touch of a button.
Advanced Wire Management Kit
The Advanced Wire Management Kit is a complete cable organization system for your height-adjustable desk. We developed this kit after years of desk installations. It's a proven way to easily manage all computer and electric desk cords.
- Includes wire management tray, 6-outlet surge protector power strip, desk-to-wall cable coil organizer, and 10 self-adhesive cable mounts with re-adjustable ties
- The UPLIFT Wire Tray attaches easily to your desktop and holds cords, small accessories, or the power strip
- 6-outlet surge protector outlet strip provides protective features and flexibility, with 180J of surge protection, an integrated 15 amp circuit breaker switch, ABS-resistant housing, ten feet of 14AWG heavy duty power cord and a flat plug. It fits in the wire tray and allows devices to travel up and down with your desk without worrying about cord length
- The UPLIFT Cable Coil consolidates your cords, bundling them in one neat package from desk to wall. The included wire funnel makes cable insertion quick and easy. See the video below for a demonstration!
- UPLIFT Adhesive Cable Ties are re-adjustable, allowing you to easily add and remove components
- The optional UPLIFT Clamp-on Surge Protector with 2 USB ports clamps onto desktops up to 1 3/8" thick, or clamps onto desk frame ends for use with thicker tops
Advanced Wire Management Kit
Clamp-on Surge Protector w/ USB charger
Choose to add wire grommets or in-desk power to your desktop. Wire grommets allow for clean and organized through-desk cable routing, or upgrade to the UPLIFT Power Grommet to add two in-desk power outlets to each grommet hole so you can power all of your devices while keeping them close at hand.
Grommets are located fifteen inches from the center of the desk, to the left and right. We've found that this allows for the best combination of cable management and accessory use. The wire tray included in the UPLIFT wire management kit was designed to fit between the grommet holes, while still allowing you to mount a full keyboard tray track and modesty panel. Upgrade one or both to UPLIFT power grommets and have a convenient place to plug in your task light, phone, or anything else you need to keep nearby.

The UPLIFT Desk LED Task Light has three color temperatures and five brightness options. It also features angle adjustments at two joints, rotation at the base and an angle adjustment of the light for optimal placement. With a sleek, foldable, energy-efficient design, the UPLIFT Task Light reduces eye strain without wasting desk space or energy.
The UPLIFT Desk can be ordered with optional casters. The casters come in a set of four - two for each leg. They can be locked to keep the desk stationary, but are easily unlocked when you need to roll the desk.
Please note: the casters will add approximately 1.5'' of height to your desk.
The UPLIFT Monitor Arm is a pneumatic arm that provides complete fingertip adjustment for height, depth and lateral movement with an adjustable counterbalance system. If you need a dual monitor solution, you can choose two single UPLIFT Arms, or an UPLIFT Dual Monitor Arm. Add an UPLIFT Laptop Mount to raise your laptop to a more comfortable viewing height.
You must choose the model that corresponds to the weight of your monitor, or the arm will not counterbalance properly.

When using a sit-stand desk, we recommend mounting your computer beneath your desktop to prevent cables from being stretched and pulled out of their ports when moving the desk from sitting to standing positions. An UPLIFT CPU Holder allows you to securely attach your computer tower to the bottom of your desktop to free up desk space.
Please note that mounting options are limited when pairing this with a 48" wide desktop. Please refer to our blog article, which shows the possible configurations. If you still have questions, please give us a call and we would be happy to discuss it with you!
An ergonomic keyboard tray gives you the freedom to adjust the height and tilt of your keyboard independently from the desk and also relieves the strain caused by over-reaching to type. The UPLIFT Large Keyboard Tray comes with one, 27'' wide surface for your keyboard and mouse to sit side-by-side. For those who prefer more flexibility, the UPLIFT Switch Keyboard Tray comes with two surfaces: a 19.75'' wide platform for the keyboard and a separate 9'' diameter surface for the mouse. The mouse platform can easily move to the left or right side for ambidextrous mousing, and is also depth adjustable.
Add an UPLIFT Track Spacer to either keyboard tray to allow you to mount the track over the center crossbar rails on your desk, allowing for better desktop support on wide desktops and full keyboard tray retraction on 24'' deep desktops.
Adding an UPLIFT Desk Mesh Modesty Panel & Cable Management will give your UPLIFT Desk's minimalist design an extra level of privacy. This modesty panel easily attaches to your desktop, traveling with it as you move from sitting to standing height, and features a mesh pocket for convenient wire management. The UPLIFT Modesty Panel, available at a discount when bundled with your desk, will help increase under-desk privacy while maintaining your desk's clean, open design. It is available in different lengths to correspond to your desktop.
UPLIFT Half Circle Desk Drawer
For a little bit of extra storage, add an UPLIFT Half Circle Desk Drawer at a discounted price when bundled together with your desk. This half-circle-shaped, swiveling drawer easily attaches to the underside of your desktop via a central mount and pivots in either direction, rotating out to give you quick and easy access to smaller accessories that you don't want cluttering up your desktop. Featuring pen and pencil trays, a notepad slot, and storage compartments, the 13.6'' W x 7.4'' D x 1.3'' thick UPLIFT accessories drawer will help keep your height adjustable desk cleaner and more organized.
The UPLIFT Motion Stool gives you the option to sit, lean, or perch at your desk. It supports you through a wide range of movements, keeps you stable, engages your core, and promotes activity. Perch-sitting provides an optimal hip angle, encouraging comfort and healthy posture.

You don't need a bunch of fancy statistics to know how unhealthy it can be to sit at your desk for hours on end. Oh, those statistics are there, and they're scary - obesity, diabetes, and even early death. But you can already feel the effects of sitting all day, both on your comfort and your energy levels. What if you could push a button and magically become healthier and happier at work? The UPLIFT Height Adjustable Sit Stand Desk lets you do just that.
A lot of ergonomic desks out there claim to be the best, but only UPLIFT Desks back it up. A quiet dual-motor system easily lifts a fully-loaded standing desk from a sitting position to a standing position in seconds, and the sturdy width-adjustable desk frame can expand during assembly to fit on a more expansive desktop or contract to fit into a space where every inch counts. The lack of a bulky, visible crossbar makes for a clean look, and removable crosspieces underneath the desktop allow for more space to mount accessories like a keyboard tray.
These are just some of the features of every UPLIFT Desk, but what about your UPLIFT Desk? You want a desk that sets you apart from everyone else riding the standing desk wave. UPLIFT Desks are loaded with unique customizable features and accessories you won't find anywhere else, so you can truly make your UPLIFT your own. Choose an UPLIFT Eco or Eco Curve UV-cured powder-coated desktop with a recycled wood composite core, which qualifies for LEED credits and is made without any solvents or harmful chemicals, one of our standard laminate GREENGUARD Certified desktops, or upgrade to an environmentally-friendly 100% recycled reclaimed wood top, a 1" thick sustainable carbonized bamboo, or a gorgeous 1.75" thick real solid wood top in a multitude of woods. Or, add a third leg and make it a large L-shaped corner UPLIFT 950 desk.
Then, load up your desk with one or all of our UPLIFT accessories, including advanced wire management, 110V power and USB power built right into your desktop, single or dual monitor arms with fingertip adjustment, and an adjustable keyboard tray that comes with short and full-length tracks that allow for even more customization. UPLIFT has everything you need to give you a lifetime of healthy and happy sit-stand adjustment without breaking the bank or sacrificing your personal style. UPLIFT is a desk for everyone, but, more importantly, it's the desk for you.

*Please note that the up, down and memory keys on the advanced 1-touch digital memory keypad operate as follows: The four memory keys allow the desk to move to one of four preset vertical positions with just one touch, meaning you do not have to hold down a numbered memory key to make an adjustment to a saved position.

Or you can simply push and hold down one of the up/down keys until you reach your desired height, if you don't wish to use the preset memory keys.

Worth every dollar
January 8, 2015
I bought this desk about a month ago, after reading about the benefits of standing desks. I spend 7+ hours per day at my desk doing computer work, and it was starting to take a toll on my body. My back would hurt at the end of the day, and I just felt lethargic after a day of work - ironic, because I was just sitting. After doing some research I decided to get a standing desk, but I was not sure about which one to get. I debated getting a cheaper model, but I wanted something that would last and that would be easy to use. This was an expensive purchase for me, and I wasn't sure because it seemed extravagant. However, once I started looking at it as an investment in my health, I decided to take the plunge and ordered this desk, along with several of the accessories. Let me tell you, it was one of the best decisions I have made. My productivity immediately went up, and I was able to recoup the money I spent in about two weeks because I could put more time in to work. And at the end of the day, my body isn't tired, my back doesn't hurt, and I still have plenty of energy. Now, I'm sure this would be true of any standing desk that is functional, so let me take a minute to describe this desk, in particular: The desk arrived via freight delivery in several boxes (two for the desk, more for the accessories). It took me couple of hours to assemble everything and get my computer set up with the cable management system (an optional accessory). Assembly of the desk itself took about an hour, but that also included time to figure out where I was going to attach the optional accessories - keyboard tray, CPU holder, and monitor arms. I was also going slow to make sure I didn't mess it up - I think if I had to do it again, I could assemble it in 30 minutes or less. Once it was assembled I tested it out. It worked perfectly, with no problems. The motor is quiet and smooth - just a "whirring" sound as the legs extend or retract. It has four preset heights, and programming the controller was easy. I only use two, one for sitting and one for standing, but I am sure the other two would be useful if another person used this desk as well. The controller display is bright and easy to read, and gives the desktop height in inches from the floor. The construction is solid. I was concerned that the desktop might be cheap laminate. It is laminate, but it is high-quality - very dense, the veneer is thick and waterproof, and the seams don't look like they will separate any time soon. The desk is stable. I can get it to wobble a little when it is near its max height, but it would take some effort to knock it over. The legs are made of steel and are very solid. They telescope, with each section fitting snugly into the next. They appear to have Teflon inserts to allow them to collapse smoothly without the need for oil or grease. The motors are housed at the top of the legs. They operate smoothly and appear to be well-constructed, at least from the outside. The power supply attaches to the underside of the desk and it comes with adhesive-backed ties to keep the cables out of the way. The power supply is heavy - usually a good sign of reliability. My main concerns when selecting a desk were comfort, functionality, and reliability. So far this desk has exceeded my expectations on all three. I won't know how reliable it is in the long term until I've used it for a couple of years, but for now, it seems great.

Uplift 900 is wonderful
December 28, 2014
My experience with the desk and your company has been 5 stars from the beginning. The ordering website was very complete and the shipment followup was amazing. We did have to give the third party delivery man an extra $20 to come through our gate and up the driveway but that worked! My friend and I put the desk together in about an hour, with casters, and keyboard tray. It was easy. No trouble programming the main default heights. The ability to adjust the height at any time is super important because you need to experiment a little. Also the rubber floor mat is essential. This desk is very important for my health as I have had serious back surgery and sitting for long periods is my enemy...

I bought this desk for any of my employees who feel like standing for a while at work. I've had it for about a year now and I couldn't be more happy with my decision to buy this over some other products out there. The motor movement continues to work quickly and smoothly to adjust for different people's height throughout the day. The delivery was quick, setup fairly simple, and overall quality is excellent. There is nothing 'cheap' feeling about this desk. I've tried out some other products and for the price of the Uplift 900, you can't beat it. If you are like it was, and trying to make a decision whether to spend the money on a desk of this type; trust me, you won't be disappointed with this one.
Pros:The motor is quiet and smooth and so far is quite durable. The desktop finish is beautiful and does not scratch easily. Simple, elegant design. The price for the quality is fantastic.
Cons:None after a year of use.

My treadmill desk setup is over 180 pounds
November 7, 2014
Thank you so much for making such an awesome desk. I received the UpLift 900 earlier this week, and am amazed with how perfect it is. It's so convenient to be able to just push a button and adjust the height; glad I didn't skimp and get a hand crank unit. The usability and finish detail are excellent. I was originally concerned about it holding the weigh my desk setup - around 180lbs. At a maximum load rating of 335lbs, your desk seems to be the beefiest on the market in this price range. As recommended in your manual, I did mount the UpLift 900 legs further to the back of the desk for balance. I then pushed the desk up against the wall for added stability. At 6'3", I have found it very comfortable to walk/work at around 46 inches high (plus the casters). It doesn't seem to wobble unless I intentionally rock it back and forth. Anyways, I'm attaching a picture of my new treadmill desk setup. The treadmill is a LifeSpan TR1200-DT3. Also, awesome!!! Thank you again for producing this incredible desk!
Pros:Quality materials Doesn't wobble at all Easily lifts my 180 pound desktop setup
Enjoying It More Than Expected
April 7, 2014
4.5/5 but basically a 5. Pros: -Height adjustable! -Parts feel solid and good quality. -Relatively easy to assemble. -Highly customizeable from purchase to assembly. -Very well packaged. -Excellent communication from placing the order to when it was delivered. Cons: -Wobbles a bit but slight and only when raised. -Somewhat pricey for me but a good value compared to everything else out there. -Have to hold the buttons in to raise/lower but this is a safety feature so you don't accidentally touch the button and have your computer, phone, or monitor pulled off the desk buy its cords; folks that buy a single touch desk are taking a big risk for a small "convenience". Also the desk has 350 lbs of lifting power so if you hit a button and it's raising automatically you can hurt yourself if a body part is pinched. Holding down the button is safe in that if something happens you just release the button instead of rapidly searching for the stop button as you're panicking. I think the lawyers may put a stop to other irresponsible dealers selling dangerous one touch switches as soon as a persons expensive equipment gets damaged and/or someone gets hurt badly and they are motivated to sue. So the fact you hold down the botton is similar to a dead man switch if you will. I'm not disappointed in Uplift keeping me safe. That said they do have a one-touch controller but they highly recommend you don't use it unless it's in a factory type setting where the dangers can be managed by a safety professional; you have to call The Human Solution to request this controller. The cons are relatively minor. Would be nice if it was three legs to eliminate all wobbliness but it only wobbles if you are really pushing down on the desktop, otherwise it's stable. If you want absolutely no movement then buy the Uplift 950 desk which is a 3-leg desk. Although it's a bit pricey, compared to other height adjustable desks, I think this is the most reasonably priced height adjustable desk with the best warranty on parts. If I had to make the decision again, I'd still buy this desk everytime. Overall, I'm extremely pleased with the purchase. I highly recommend getting the caster wheels for ease of moving the desk around. It makes cleaning around the desk so much easier.
