For users who can't access an electrical outlet or specifically need a manual sit-to-stand desk, the UPLIFT 830 Counterbalanced Pneumatic Standing Desk Base is an affordable, electricity-free solution to combat the health hazards associated with sitting all day. The smooth pneumatic adjustment is counterbalanced for specific weight ranges, giving you quick and easy adjustment from sitting to standing nearly instantly based on the weight of your desktop, as well as that of your computer and peripherals. While we recommend an electric height adjustable desk above manual desks for its precision adjustment and its wider and heftier weight capacity, the UPLIFT 830 Pneumatic Sit-Stand Desk is the ideal alternative if an electric desk is not an option.

Features - UPLIFT 830 Counterbalanced Pneumatic Standing Desk Base

  • Electricity-free height adjustable desk base gives you 19.5'' of quick height adjustment from sitting to standing
  • Counterbalanced synchronization system can handle uneven desktop loads, with varying weight capacities to fit your desktop needs
  • Available in black or silver, with four different crossbar options to correspond with the width of your top
  • Precision tube and roller lifting system ensures smooth sit-to-stand adjustment in seconds

Counterbalanced Weight Range - UPLIFT 830 Pneumatic Standing Desk Base

The UPLIFT 830 Counterbalanced Pneumatic Standing Desk Base is available in several different weight capacities to suit the varying weights of individual users' desktops and accessories.

  • 100N: 30 to 70 lbs.
  • 250N: 64 to 104 lbs.
  • 400N: 98 to 138 lbs.
  • 600N: 143 to 183 lbs.

In order to give you optimal counterbalanced height adjustment, you will need to pick the weight range that will best suit your needs. Be sure to account for both the weight of your desktop, as well as the weight of all accessories on or attached to your desktop. Below is a chart of the average weights of some of the accessories we offer, as well as an average weight of other accessories such as your monitor and CPU.


Keyboard tray 17 lbs
Monitor arm UPLIFT single arm: 12 lbs
UPLIFT dual arm: 25 lbs
Keyboard and mouse 6 lbs
CPU Holder 9 lbs
CPU* 12-25 lbs
Monitors* 17''-19'': 7-15 lbs
24'': 9-22 lbs

*Please note that some accessories like your monitor and CPU can vary depending on your brand and model. Most newer model monitors tend to be lighter, however, some models like Apple cinema displays lean more towards the heavy side. The easiest way to determine their weight is to weigh your accessories yourself or do a quick search online for your model monitor or CPU; most manufacturers have their products' weights readily available.

Advanced Wire Management Kit - UPLIFT 830 Pneumatic Standing Desk Base

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 cords. The kit includes the following:

  • Wire management tray - a large tray (3.6'' wide x 24'' long) attached to the bottom surface of your desktop that holds the included power strip along with any AC adapters or cord bundles. It is easy to add or remove items. (Note: While we recommend the full kit, this tray is also available on its own.)
  • 6-outlet power strip - fits in the wire management tray and allows your monitor, computer, phone, desk lamp or other corded accessories to ride up/down with the desktop so you never run out of cord length when the desk is fully raised.
  • 10 self-adhesive cable mounts
  • 100 single use cable ties
  • 10 reusable cable ties
  • Desk-to-wall cable organizer - conceals the power strip and Ethernet cords going to your wall outlet in a single attractive wire management tube. It's very easy to add/remove wires from the tube with the included wire funnel tool.

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


The included cable organization tray forms the crux of your wire management solution with a sleek, black design that seamlessly blends with your desk's design and mounts securely to the desktop with two self-tapping wood screws or a strip of included double-sided tape. At 3.6'' wide, this tray is wide enough to accommodate cords, power supplies and the included power strip, minimizing below-desk clutter. While we recommend adding the entire advanced wire management kit for a full cable management solution with the most customization, this wire management tray portion of the kit can also be added to your desk order on its own.

The Advanced Wire Management kit includes a wire management tray.

10 self-adhesive wire mounts and 100 single-use cable ties allow for cables to be bundled and pulled taut against the bottom of the desk, eliminating hanging wires.

Wire mounts and cable ties allow for a clean, custom wire management solution.

As your workstation develops over the years, it's likely that you'll need to re-bundle wires for routing or storage inside the wire management tray. A set of 10 reusable cable ties is also included, allowing for modification of cable bundling as needed without needing to replace individual cable ties.

Reusable cable ties allow for on-the-fly modification of your cable management system.

Additionally, the Advanced Wire Management Kit provides a desk-to-wall cable organizer to organize wires running from an outlet or equipment to your desk in a single bundle. The desk-to-wall cable organizer's heavy-duty "spiral" design protects the cables inside from wear and tear, while also allowing cables to be integrated into the organizer or removed from it easily. An included quick wire add/remove tool rapidly and efficiently routes cables into the organizer.

The desk-to-wall cable organizer neatly organizes and protects exposed cords running between your desk and the power outlet.

Finally, if you need more power outlets close at hand, or just need an all-in-one power solution, a clamp-on surge protector with USB charger can be added to the Advanced Wire Management Kit or ordered as a standalone product. This unique surge protector features six power outlets with space for two large AC adapters as well as a pair of ports for charging USB devices. Capable of clamping onto any surface up to 1 3/8'' thick, this surge protector can placed nearly anywhere on your desk for convenient outlet access. Please note that this surge protector will not fit inside of the wire management tray and must be mounted on the desk edge.

The UPLIFT clamp=on surge protector with USB charger offers an extra-convenient way to power your devices.

Monitor Arm - UPLIFT 830 Pneumatic Standing Desk Base

Monitor arms allow you to easily move your monitor in and out, side-to-side, and up and down, while allowing you to make use of your desktop surface. Monitor arms help you keep good posture as you look at your screen, while avoiding eye strain. Monitor stands that typically come with a new monitor are not ergonomic, and most people end up pushing their monitor too far back on their desks. Monitor arms give you more control, encourage comfortable posture, and save desk space. Most people that purchase a monitor arm come back and say they should have gone with a monitor arm years ago.

The Budget Single Monitor Arm allows you to elevate your VESA-compatible display off of your desk and easily move the monitor in the horizontal plane (in and out, side-to-side) by using your fingertips to move the monitor. To move the monitor vertically you need to manually adjust the vertical position of the arm where it connects to the pole at the back of your desk.

For users who want very easy adjustments, we recommend the UPLIFT Monitor Arm. This stylish, heavy-duty monitor arm comes in black, and provides complete fingertip adjustment for height, depth and lateral movement. It supports monitors weighing up to 17.5 lbs. and has an adjustable counterbalance system that allows for fingertip vertical monitor adjustment. If you are looking for a dual monitor solution, there is the option to add two UPLIFT single arms at the same great, discounted bundle price per monitor arm.

UPLIFT desks go great with an UPLIFT monitor arm.

UPLIFT Desk Mat - UPLIFT 830 Pneumatic Standing Desk Base

Add an UPLIFT Sit-Stand desk mat to your desk base order, and receive an additional discount off the regular mat price. Our UPLIFT Sit-Stand anti-fatigue desk mats 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. Choose from a 2' x 3' size or a 3' x 5' size.

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

CPU Holder - UPLIFT 830 Pneumatic Standing Desk Base

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.

Keyboard Tray - UPLIFT 830 Pneumatic Standing Desk Base

An ergonomic keyboard tray is an excellent accessory for your UPLIFT desk, and our UPLIFT Large Keybord Tray, with its easy lift-and-release knob-free locking height adjustment that adjusts a full 8'', wheel tilt adjustment, and easy-to-read height and tilt indicators, gets your keyboard and mouse in the proper position whether seated or standing. The 27'' wide, low-profile phenolic keyboard tray also features a removable foam palm rest and a separate foam mousing platform with sliding mouse catcher and cord manager that can be switched from the right to left side for ambidextrous mousing. The low-profile, heavy-duty platform gets your keyboard and mouse even closer to your lap, allows for compact storage, and is wide enough to comfortably fit most keyboard and mouse combinations. This high-quality keyboard tray system is available at a discounted price when bundled together with this desk and comes with an 11" track to mount the keyboard tray without interference from your desk's support underneath. 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 with a 60'' or wider desktop, you can take advantage of the 360° of rear swivel at the mechanism to rotate your platform around underneath the desktop for storage.

  • 27'' wide x 11.125'' deep low-profile phenolic platform for both keyboard and mouse
  • 8'' of height adjustment (3'' above track to 5'' below)
  • 20° negative to 10° positive wheel tilt adjustment
  • 360° mechanism swivel
  • 8.125'' diameter foam mousing surface with sliding mouse catcher and cord manager can be switched from left to right side of platform
  • 11'' and 21'' tracks
  • 27'' foam palm support

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.

UPLIFT 830 Counterbalanced Pneumatic Standing Desk Base
$1,269.00

Professor Ergo's Thoughts:

The UPLIFT 830 Counterbalanced Pneumatic Standing Desk Base is a great, affordable option for users who want to convert their own desktop to a sit-to-stand desk and specifically need something electricity-free. Be sure to include both the weight of the desktop you will be using as well as how much weight you will be putting on top of the desk to determine which model is right for you. If, in the future, your needs change, you can even change out the cylinder to give your desk a lower or higher counterbalanced weight capacity.

It's clear that this company is on a mission to help people. They have found a way to differentiate themselves in a crowded market and stand out as a great company which deserves all the success it achieves.
