Frame Style

The UPLIFT Height Adjustable Standing Desk Frame comes in different styles to fit your desktop. For comparison, check out the side view of our desk frames below. Notice the legs are centered on the feet of the T-frame and offset to the rear of the feet on the C-frame. Our C-frame 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 C-frame foot also gives you a slightly more stable desk because it is built to be very stiff with its advanced cast-molded aluminum construction to allow for its advanced design. The T-frame foot is made up of a more affordable bent steel construction.

UPLIFT Standing Desk Frame Style Options

For desktops between 27.5'' and 40'' deep, the most popular option is the C-frame, but we also offer the T-frame with two foot options; a 27.5'' foot or a 24'' option, perfect for shallower desktops.

Frame Width

Choose your frame width to fit the desktop you'll be pairing it with. We find that the standard frame width, which telescopes to fit desktops anywhere from 43'' to 96'' wide, works for most people, but if your desktop is narrower than 43'', we offer shorter crossbar ends that will fit tops as narrow as 26''. The standard width frame comes with optional center rails that can be removed if you would like to mount a longer keyboard tray track.

Please note: all dimensions given are assuming desktop is at least 1'' thick and made of a durable material.

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.

The Advanced Wire Management kit includes everything you need to organize your desk's cable clutter.

Monitor Arm

The attached stands that typically come with a new monitor are not ergonomic or adjustable; using a monitor arm will allow you to maintain good posture, avoid eye strain, control monitor position and save desktop space. Most people who purchase a monitor arm say they should have done so years ago.

The UPLIFT Monitor Arm is a stylish, pneumatic monitor arm that provides complete fingertip adjustment for height, depth and lateral movement with an adjustable counterbalance system that allows for easy movement. If you are looking for a dual monitor solution, you have the option of choosing two single UPLIFT Monitor Arms, or an UPLIFT Dual Monitor Arm, with the same great intuitive adjustment. Add an UPLIFT Laptop Mount to raise your laptop to a more comfortable viewing height.


  • Single UPLIFT arm for monitors 4.5 - 17.5 lbs. or laptops 0.5 - 13.5 lbs.
  • Single UPLIFT arm for monitors 17.5 - 35 lbs.
  • Two single UPLIFT arms for dual monitors 4.5 - 17.5 lbs. each
  • Dual UPLIFT arm for monitors 4.5 - 17.5 lbs. or with a laptop 0.5 - 13.5 lbs
  • Dual UPLIFT arm for monitors 17.5 - 35 lbs. each

*PLEASE NOTE: Your monitor must fall within the weight range of the model you choose. If your monitor is lighter than the weight range shown, the arm will not be remain at any position lower than highest point. If your monitor is heavier than the weight range shown, the arm will not remain at any position higher than the lowest point. If you are unsure of the weight of your monitor, contact us, and one of our experts will help determine the correct monitor arm for you.

UPLIFT desks go great with an UPLIFT monitor arm.

Standing Desk Mat

Our 18'' x 30'' desk mat is an excellent choice for comfortable standing. It has a textured surface to prevent slipping, and the gel foam interior provides relief to legs and feet. It's light and small enough to easily move back and forth as you go from sitting to standing.

If you prefer a larger, thicker mat, our 2' x 3' and 3' x 5' options are extremely durable and comfortable. The padding is an inch thick, and the surface is puncture-proof to withstand high heels or even the wheels of your chair.

Note: If you wish to use your mat as a chair mat as well, you will need the 3' x 5' size.

CPU Holder

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. We don't recommend leaving your CPU on the floor, as most cords aren't long enough to stretch from a computer placed on the floor to the standing height of your desk. While one option is to place your CPU on top of your desk, a CPU holder allows you to securely attach your computer tower to the bottom of your desktop to free up desk space. For an adjustable CPU holder at a discounted price when bundled with this desk, our own UPLIFT CPU Holder features a 360° swivel mount and a gliding track mechanism for easy access to your computer.

A CPU holder is an important consideration when buying a sit-stand desk.

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!

Keyboard Tray

An ergonomic keyboard tray is an excellent accessory for your UPLIFT desk, giving you the freedom to adjust the height and tilt of your keyboard independently from the desk. A keyboard tray will also relieve the strain caused by over-reaching to type and is an excellent way to manage repetitive stress issues. An UPLIFT Desk is available with your choice of two keyboard trays. 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, allowing you to position your mouse closer to your body or farther away without adjusting the rest of the keyboard tray.

All necessary mounting hardware is included, including an 11'' track that allows your keyboard tray system to be mounted without interference from the desk's support beam underneath, and a 21'' track that you can use if the crosspiece is removed from the desk. While the 11'' track length will not allow you to fully store your tray along the track under your desk, we find that most users never fully retract their tray even if they have that capability. For users looking to retract their keyboard tray entirely under the desk along the track, do not install the optional center rails and mount the 21" track between the crossbar ends. For users with a 60'' or wider desktop, you also can take advantage of the 360° of rear swivel at the mechanism to rotate your platform underneath the desktop for storage.

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, a tape dispenser, 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.

*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. Please be sure there is adequate clearance above and below your desk, and check cord lengths to insure adequate length of all cords before adjusting the desk height using the memory keys. 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.

**Maximum desktop width depends on the material, thickness and construction of the top you are providing. Our durable 1.75'' thick real wood desktops can be up to 96'' wide, but flimsier tops may sag or bend at that 96'' width if placed on our width-adjustable desk base without installing the crossbar. The maximum recommended depth of your desktop is 40'' (desk will overhang the feet of the base by about 5'' in the front and rear). Please note that a 40'' deep desk will be slightly less stable, and we recommend a three-leg 950 base for those who require no desk movement. A 950 base supports a 50'' deep desktop. All UPLIFT desks offer best-in-class stability.

Perfect solution
December 29, 2014
I write for a living so spend a great deal of time at a computer. I have a solid oak table I had made as my workspace, really did not want to give that up but needed a solution to sitting all day. I bought the uplift 900 Frame. It fits under the table with no obstruction and it works perfectly. My initial concern that the desk would be too heavy to lift and still be stable (it is around 100 pounds empty but with printer, two monitors on it around 150 pounds). Those concerns are long gone. The uplift handles it without strain and is as stable up as down. I also have a Humanscale Freedom Saddle Seat which I bought before (one that goes up quite high). It works perfectly with the desk so I can sit, stand or sort of Stand-Sit. Both are great products. For those who want to keep their own desk or table but want to stand they are a perfect solution.

Excellent. Worth every penny
December 26, 2014
All around excellent. I bought the Uplift 900 Height-Adjustable base after wasting money on a couple of other products. I've used this for about 6 months now. By getting the base I was able to use my existing desk top and therefore no need to change out other non-matching furniture. Previously my work area was set up so that it was difficult to switch back to a sitting position. With this product I can simply push a button and my entire desk moves up or down in a matter of seconds. I love the memory function so I can set up to 4 different heights. Absolutely worth every penny.
Heavy duty 4 memory settings with the base you can use your own table top easy to assemble cord organizers with adhesive
Honestly can't think of a single con.

Fantastic Versatile Desk Option!
October 7, 2014
I have had my Uplift 900 for about 2 months and have been 100% pleased! I would NEVER go back to a sole-ly sitting desk again. It was very easy to assemble, and I loved that I could incorporate it seamlessly into my home-office decor by using my old desktop for the top. The legs are extremely sturdy, have a nice clean look, and the motor is very quiet. I greatly appreciated the assembly video tutorials as well as the examples for how to safely keep the cords collected and untangled underneath. The memory buttons are very helpful to remember my favorite standing & sitting heights. Worth every penny! (and still cheaper and nicer-looking than the GeekDesk my husband bought for his home office!)

Uplift 900 Height-Adjustable base
July 10, 2014
I should have bought one of these years ago. I was not sure how much of my day I would stand - maybe an hour or two. I can easily say I use it in the standing position more than 50% even 80-90% of my day. I should have ordered one of these years ago. I've already got my brother-in-law and his father-in-law interested in one. It's that good. The only thing they don't tell you is to be sure you have a good pair of comfortable shoes and be sure to have a foot stand you can alternate resting one or the other foot on under the desk.
