In my previous post, I outlined my favorite 5 cheap accessories to stand on while working at a standing desk. In this post I want to recommend my favorite 3 premium accessories for standing on at a stand up desk, ranging in price from $100 - $800.
Accessory 1: SmartCells Antifatigue Comfort Mat. SmartCells uses SATECH, a high tech manufacturing cushioning material used on those awesome cushy playgrounds. With an 8 year warranty and a product that delivers relief from joint stress from working at a standing desk, it is worth the starting price tag of around $100.00. My SmartCells mat is the Classic 24”x36” in black, and I don’t share it.
Accessory 2: Stamina InMotion Elliptical Trainer. This is one of those neat desk accessories you probably haven’t heard of before, unless you happen to see a co-worker using one. Some people use these while sitting down. I use mine with my Stand Steady desktop standing desk, of course, and not going super-fast. It takes up a tiny footprint of space under your desk, and provides that exercise in your day we are all missing. I use StandSteady Leg Extenders on my standing desk, to accommodate the extra height of the elliptical. Try it – you might start a trend at your office. And it’s so affordable at around $100 for basic black, or a little extra for colors.
Accessory 3: LifeSpan TR800-DT3 Standind Desk Treadmill. This will require 2 strong people to bring the box to your cube and take it out. Once I installed it, I was very happy. It takes up less space than I anticipated. The speed goes from .4 to 4 miles per hour, and it records all the vitals, like speed, calories and distance. Goodbye Gym membership!
