Base Color and Style

The UPLIFT Height Adjustable Standing Desk is offered with two different styles of electric sit stand desk frame. 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 cast-molded aluminum construction to allow for its advanced design. The T-frame foot is made up of a more affordable bent steel construction.

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.

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.

Adding an UPLIFT Desk Modesty Panel & Cable Management will give your UPLIFT Desk's minimalist design an extra level of privacy.

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. Each size is 10'' high.

Sizes available:

UPLIFT Desk named one of the top five standing desks by Lifehacker readers! The UPLIFT Desk is recommended by the LA Times UPLIFT Desk featured in Forbes Magazine

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 standing 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 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 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 1.5" 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.

Features - UPLIFT Height Adjustable Sit Stand Desk

  • Features 26" of height adjustment, a quiet soft start and stop motor in each leg, and an energy saving low-draw transformer that doesn't use much electricity when not lifting or lowering the desk (this Green feature is not found on many other desks).

  • Height adjustable desk frame features control box with haul sensor that aligns feet for speed
  • Crossbar positioned directly underneath desktop for cleaner look and more leg space when seated
  • Choose a standard push and hold up/down keypad, or upgrade to the advanced 1-touch digital memory keypad, featuring four programmable presets and an LED desk height readout in inches

*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.

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.

I purchased the desk with the biggest desktop that The Human Solution sells. On the desk I fit two large monitors, speakers, keyboard, Wacom tablet, a space for a notebook, and there is room to spare. The desk rises smoothly up and down with very little noise. I recommend this desk for video professionals.

Wonderful desk!

I couldn't be happier with my purchase and am really glad that I sprung for a larger desk than originally anticipated as well as the programmable panel. The only thing I found annoying was shipping options. Read them thoroughly and look at the costs of each. The desk itself is AWESOME though!

With this, the delivery agent will park the freight truck in front of your residence, so you can cut the ties on the pallet and take the items off the truck and into your home. For most customers, this delivery method is manageable for two people. If you do not have a friend, family member or neighbor who can help, you can ask the delivery driver to help you lift and move the boxes to your house. Please understand that the driver is not required to assist, but, in our experience, kindness and a small tip go a long way. If you believe you will not be able to lift the items off the truck, we recommend selecting Residential lift gate delivery below. The desktop and desk frame are packaged separately on the pallet, allowing you to break down the pallet and remove each box individually from the truck and into your residence. A laminate desktop weighs about 50 lbs, and a desk frame weighs about 70 lbs. Any accessories you order are packaged separately and easy to manage. Once you are sure all boxes have been removed from the truck (including the desktop, which will be boxed up and protected between two plywood boards), we recommend you leave the pallet and plywood boards in the back of the truck, if the driver agrees. Residential lift gate delivery is the same as the Residential standard freight delivery described above, but the freight truck has a device to get the shipment off the truck for you. This is an additional $49. As with Residential standard freight delivery, if you want extra help from the delivery driver (beyond removing your boxes from the truck) we recommend kindness and a small tip.
- simple design - easy to use - has a good weight capacity (I have two laptops, two large monitors and the monitor stand plus all the usual desk items, papers, etc so I couldn't go with a "flimsy" desk)
I have no complaints about the desk. The biggest annoyance was the shipping. I had to have it delivered to work to avoid paying hundreds of dollars, then break down the pallet to fit it in my van.

LOVE THIS DESK! OMG! My back pain is already gone..
February 12, 2015
This is my first experience with a standing desk, but so far so good. There are two ways to use this desk effectively. 1. When you're doing creative type work - sit down.. relax.. get it done. 2. When you're doing "busy-bee" type work - stand up.. relax.. get it done. This is a game changer because the desk is: Easy to Assemble Quality Construction - I love the legs on this thing.. very heavy and sturdy. Fast Up and Down (so you don't have to wait). It's fast. Now - the real reason: You can't sit all day at a office job and expect your health and back pain to improve. You MUST take action and $699 is a steal compared to the doctor's bill and health problems. It's a very no-brainer tradeoff. After one day, I can tell.. My back is already starting to improve. ONE F'G DAY! Thanks!

You need a drill for the extra pieces (like the keyboard drawer, the CPU holder). Still trying to hide the cords (but that's electronics)

This desk was easy to put together, and works flawlessly. This is my second desk. This desk is a better price and similar quality. My only complaint is that the desktop (I got cherry) is particle board, and the veneer is unrealistic when looked-at closely. But on the other side, it was very reasonably priced, and you could easily replace with any other desktop you want. If I had to buy another desk, I would pick this one.
High quality, easy to put together, excellent price
desktop is fake looking when viewed from a close distance

great product
January 25, 2015
I've been using this desk for 3 months now. I purchased 3 grommet holes for cable management and that was a great investment, very easy to route my cables across my desk in the most efficient manner. Desk surface is very nice for a laminate looks like real wood and doesn't feel like plastic. Motor is quiet and has no issues moving the desk up and down at a reasonable speed. If you want to stand a lot make sure you purchase the floor mat. The cable management sleeve is ok but the type of cable ties that comes with the kit were really nice and reusable so i can change my cabling many times without having to use additional ties.
great computer desk good value nice quality parts
not a good desk for drawing on due to the 2 leg design. If you erase something on paper the desk has a tendency to shake. This can be bad if you have large monitor because it will shake the monitor and could make it unstable. I just moved my 37" monitor off my desk and fixed the problem pretty easily. A smaller monitor probably would not be as big of a deal.

Seems to work fine
January 17, 2015
I've had the desk only a few months but it seems to be working fine. Putting it together was not too difficult with all of the assembly videos. Definitely helps alleviate my hip soreness and hamstring tightness being able to stand for two or three hours a day.
Easy to assemble Fairly quick raising and lowering

Excellent desk
January 10, 2015
We bought this desk not only for its sit/stand capability but also because several people have to use it (and they are quite different sizes). It took a little while to assemble, but everything works wonderfully well. I am now considering recommending them to professional contacts!
Sturdy, easy to assemble (with correct tools), excellent adjustments and also very nice looking.

Annoyed I waited this long to order one!
December 24, 2014
Ok, I saw this site and company like a year ago and thought to myself, "Hmm, I work on computers all day and then go home and play computer games all night ... I should probably get one of thees and get off my butt at least somewhat!" But I was going back and forth on cost, practicality, need for options, etc etc. Cut the story short, I went ahead and bought myself an early Christmas present and it was the Uplift900 and my god is it worth every penny. I went back and forth between this and the smaller one but opted for the 900 in case I want a larger desk. The 48 is perfect for a 2x24" gaming station. The unit was easy enough to get in the house after I got it off the pallet although the legs and stuff were 70 pounds. The 4 presets are perfect and the action is smooth. The table is very stable and easy to work on and game on. I'm thrilled. My wife laughs at me every time she hears the desk going up and down which is like 8 times a day now but I don't care, I can already feel the difference and I'm thrilled.

Great value
December 24, 2014
This sit/stand desk is about the best price I've seen, yet is a top quality product that I'd compare favorably to others priced well above. I wasn't expecting to have the benefit of 4 separate memory height locations either. It was relatively easy to set up and use. It is nice and stable at any height. I found that even when sitting, I'm much more comfortable than the static height desk I had previously. Who knew what a difference it makes when you can actually tweak the desk height in fractions of an inch. I would highly recommend this product to anyone.
Merchant Response:
Thank you for your comments, Mike! In response to your feedback about the location of the height control panel, we predrill the holes for easier installation, but if you drill your own holes, you can place the controller anywhere you'd like.
4 memory height settings Stable
The location of the pre-drilled holes for the height controller is too far to the front for me personally. I would have preferred that you could have the bottom of the controller flush with the edge or even slightly back.

Do it!
December 2, 2014
If you have been thinking about ordering an standing desk do it!. I have had mine for a month now and am standing 3-4 hours a day. You could definitely save money by just buying the base and then buying your own top from IKEA, though the top is very sturdy and appears quite durable. Also, when you do pull the trigger, watch the assembly instruction video.
Good value. Straight forward assembly.

Just what the doctor ordered!
September 29, 2014
It is impossible to not love this desk. It is everything it is advertised to be and do. I have been encouraged to go to a stand up desk for about a year now; since taking on a sitting job. I began the search and like everything out there, there is a ton of information available and of course many of these types of desks on the market. I narrowed down to the UpLift 900, because of the straight forward explanations, videos with fantastic detail and directions available. The ordering process, after deciding on the one I wanted was extremely simple. At first, I would only stand for a few hours per day, but now I'm only sitting occaisionally, because this thing can adjust in so many ways, it makes standing in various ways easy. I did get the monitor stand, keyboard mount and foot pedistal and still agree with my decision there as well. For health and well-being, for comfort, for an enjoyable work day "every day", the UpLift 900 Sit Stand is the only way to go. A friend of mine who bought a stationary standing desk now wishes, he had spent a few more dollars to gain the flexibility of my work environment.

UpLift 900 Sit-Stand Ergonomic Desk (Silver)
September 12, 2014
Been using this desk for almost a month. Works much better than I anticipated, but we usually buy cut-rate furniture for our office.The wood is good quality, the lifting mechanism works easily and quietly. We installed the keyboard tray but I'm not using it yet. Delivery was easily communicated and friendly. I'd comment on the construction/build but I wasn't here. Must not have been too complicated because I heard no complaints!

Uplift desk
August 18, 2014
Both of the guys that are using the uplift desk love them. I'm pretty tempted to get one for myself but need to wait a bit to fit it into the budget. They work great and look great. Everyone that sees them thinks they look awesome and want to know what it's like to work at them.

love the desk
August 12, 2014
Love the uplift desk. It is better than I expected. The Human Solution had great customer service too. I didn't love the delivery company (Road Runner Freight delivered mine), but other than that, everything was great. Only other minor issues was figuring out where to drill for the CPU holder and keyboard tray. There was info on the various options on where to place the cpu holder and keyboard tray on the quick setup instruction sheet and they already pre-drilled holes for the desktop to height adjustable frame connection but they don't pre-drill for the optional cpu holder and keyboard tray due to the fact the different customers want the accessories in different locations (personal preference). I had to experiment with locations and it worked out just fine, but was a bit harder than I expected. Overall, love the desk, highly recommend it, and wouldn't get anything else. The CPU holder and keyboard tray are great.

Best Product, Best Value

Purchased my desk a few months back and I am completely satisfied. I went with the dark Walnut Solid Wood desk and it looks amazing. It is a 2 inch thick slab of beautiful solid wood and it really is amazing to work at all day. You're at your desk a long time each day so make it beautiful! Quality is there in both fit, finish and functionality. Love the memory setting for times when my wife works at the desk.

Really Nice Desk
June 3, 2014
The UpLift desk arrived quickly and took only about an hour to assemble. I am incredibly impressed with the desk it's fit and finish is perfect and the legs work as advertised. It goes very low and very high so it will fit my kids all the way up to a visiting NBA player. Extremely quiet operation and smooth. I would recommend this desk to anyone.

This is a nice, solid desk that performs exactly as advertised. I'm very happy with my decision. Lots of compliments too! It looks quite a bit better in person than on the website in my opinion.

Assembly Instructions
May 23, 2014
Completely assembled product performs superbly. Assembly of the desk by itself was easy but the instructions provided no dimensional guidelines for accessories. Working with the provided parameters allowed an assembly that did not integrate assembly of the CPU Holder provided in a separate package with separate instructions. So be sure to plan for where the CPU holder track lays out when you are attaching the frame to the desktop. JW Moderators Note: Thanks for your comment JW. We recently changed our quick reference instructions -that are provided with the desk- to include more details on how to layout a CPU holder and/or a keyboard tray on your desk. These will help clear things up when you are putting a desk together. These would have helped you plan for the CPU holder install so we're sorry the instructions provided with your desk weren't more detailed.
