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.

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.

Nick's shoes look spectacular on the UPLIFT Standing Desk Mat.

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. 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!

Keyboard Tray

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.

Great desk
April 10, 2013
Everything I wanted and expected. It is beautiful, and it was pretty easy to put together.

terrific desk!
February 6, 2013
I bought a Tread Desk (it's just tread part of a treadmill) and needed a desk that could go up and down, and this desk is fantastic! Although, I rarely ever move it from the high-up position, as I'm always standing and using the Tread; even so, I love my desk! I do worry though, what happens if the motors dies and I can get it to go down, or back up?

Everything I wanted

The instructions and build were a little hairy at first, but it's a great desk and has made my daily work so much better!

Adjustable Height desk 445
April 30, 2012
I LOVE this desk! The motor works smoothly when lifting/lowering the desk, and it is great to be able to stand or walk on a treadmill for periods during the day. As others commented, the directions are not very good - a diagram is all you get, but a little common sense goes a long way here. I have the center cut desk and have attached the keyboard shelf from my old desk. It doesn't interfere with the motor and gives me the entire surface to work on, which is much deeper than it looks in the pictures.

Great Desk
January 27, 2012
I looked around for a lot of height adjustable desks and ended up getting this one. I got the 63 inch center cut. I personally really like the center cut, especially when I'm standing. That was a deal breaker for many of the other desks I looked at. The price is also very good compared to other electric desks. There are adjusters on the feet so you can always level your desk. I actually like mine facing down a little. Some desks offer memory presets, but I glad I didn't pay more for a desk like that. It's very easy to remember what position I like and quick to get it there. Things I would have liked: I would have liked an option for a black desk. There is no instructions on where to drill the holes on the wooden desk part to the frame. You just pick where you think you want it. (Maybe that's better?). I would have also liked better instructions on metal holder that holds the power supply. It's a little tricky to figure out exactly how it works, but it's a really good design.
