Any desk can become a standing desk.

You might think of a standing desk as a big investment. However, you can simply replace the static legs on any existing desk with electric lift legs for an adjustable height desk that already features your desired layout.


Standing desks can adjust to various heights.

A common misconception with standing desks is that it’s necessary to stand throughout the day. However, most users will adjust the positioning throughout the day to move from sitting to standing. With a sit-stand chair that allows you to move into a sitting, standing, or kneeling position, you can ensure that you don’t experience any undue strain with a standing desk setup.


You may get a letter of medical necessity to help acquire a standing desk at work.

Some workplaces are happy to provide ergonomic office furniture upgrades, but if you’re getting pushback from your organization, you might consider writing a letter of medical necessity with help from a doctor, physical therapist, or occupational therapist. This is essentially a doctor’s note that advocates for your need to have a standing desk, adjustable height chair, or both in your workplace.
