Research has repeatedly linked sitting for long periods of time to health concerns, including obesity and heart disease. But, if you have to work at a desk, it's hard to know what to do. That's why plenty of people are using standing desks.
These genius desks allow you to power through your workday while standing on your own two feet — not plopped down on your butt. And, if you need to sit for a bit, it's no problem: Simply lower your desktop.
Standing desks can be pricey, but not today: Amazon has slashed prices more than 30 percent off a huge selection of top-rated Flexispot standing desks and best-selling standing desk converters. There are a lot of different options to choose from to elevate your work from home set-up — literally — but you definitely won't want to miss these.
Got a desk you already love? That's no problem — you can convert it into a standing desk! The best-selling Flexispot Standing Desk Converter simply attaches to the top of your current desk to give you more levels to work from. The workstation rises and folds vertically, and even has a quick-release removable keyboard tray. An X structure and gas spring hovering system help you easily transition from sitting to standing.
This desk converter, which comes in black, mahogany and rustic finishes, has plenty of fans. "If you have never had a desk riser you will love this one," a happy user wrote in the reviews. "Nothing beats being able to easily stand and sit through out the day. ...I love this product, my legs don't get stiff or any pains from sitting too long." Another fan said the converter is great for their sciatica. "I love it. It takes no effort to adjust the height of it with my laptop, second monitor and input devices on top," they wrote. "It is sturdy and does not move at all when I type."
