Research has repeatedly linked prolonged sitting to health concerns, including obesity and heart disease. But when you have to work at a desk, it is hard to know what to do. That’s why a lot of people use standing desks.
With these ingenious desks, you can get through your work day while standing on your own two feet – and not plopping on your bum. And if you have to sit briefly, that’s no problem: Simply lower the table top.
Standing desks can be expensive, but not anymore: Amazon has cut prices on a huge selection of top-quality Flexispot standing desks and best-selling standing desk converters by more than 30 percent. There are many different options to choose from to enhance your work from home – literally – but you definitely won’t want to miss out on this one.

Do you have a desk that you already love? No problem – you can convert it into a standing desk! The best-selling Flexispot Standing Desk Converter simply clips to the top of your current desk to give you more levels to work with. The workstation can be lifted and folded vertically and even has a removable keyboard tray with a quick-release lock. An X-structure and a gas spring suspension system make the transition from sitting to standing easier.
This table converter, which is available in black and mahogany, has many fans. “If you’ve never had a desk riser you’ll love this one,” wrote one lucky user on the Reviews. “Nothing is better than being able to stand and sit all day without any problems. … I love this product, my legs do not become stiff or hurt from sitting too long.” Another fan said the converter was great for his sciatica. “I love it. It’s no effort to adjust the height with my laptop, second monitor and input devices at the top,” they write. “It’s sturdy and doesn’t move at all when you type.”
