The UPLIFT Desk Converter: An Affordable Sit-Stand Solution

Posted by Pete A on Aug 1st 2014

Here at Human Solution, we understand that not everybody is able to purchase a complete sit-to-stand desk, whether because of budget constraints, or maybe an office won't allow the replacement of current desks. So how do you get around this? Well if it's money you are lacking, you could always rob old women of their baked goods and re-sell them for a profit. This is not recommended, however, as the baked goods bubble burst a long time ago. If your boss won't let you replace your current desk, well, there's not much you can do except steal their lunch out of spite. This may lead to a firing, so be careful.

There is another solution to these problems if the suggestions above did not work. Introducing the UPLIFT Desk Converter, a budget friendly way to stand while you work that easily attaches to your current desk! It starts with our UPLIFT Sit-Stand Scissor Lift, a 27" wide surface that will easily hold your keyboard and mouse, and even includes an integrated foam wrist rest. This platform lays flat on your desk, and can raises to 9.25" above the desk, which provides enough height for most users to stand. This comes paired with our UPLIFT Monitor Arm, which is one of the most versatile arms on the market. This arm has a great height range, raising up to 19" from the desktop. It clamps to any desk surface up to 3 5/8" thick, which makes it an easy addition to your existing desk. If you have a two monitor setup, you can opt for the dual version, or even add a laptop holder. Each monitor arm can extend out to 27.5" and can conveniently retract to the backside of your desk when not in use.

So there you have it, a sit-to-stand solution at half the cost. Be sure that your monitor(s) are VESA plate compatible before placing an order. The monitor arm will fit all VESA mounts that are 75mm or 100mm in size. If you don't mind spending a bit more, be sure to check our UPLIFT Space Saver, a smaller version of our full desk.
