You could spend too much on a stand up desk with tricky assembly, or you could save valuable time and money with the Stand Steady X-Elite Pro!
There are a few things to keep in mind before buying a standing desk, but because you don't have all the time in the world to research (you're very busy, after all) we're here to break it down.
What should you wear at your standing desk? Here at Stand Steady, we all have stand up desks, with a new fashion problem. When we use them, we stand in sometimes different and creative ways.

You've got your standing desk, so let’s use it to get fit at the office. I’m talking about deskercising. It’s not as cool as Jazzercize but it’s a lot more convenient, plus the Jazzercize moms intimidate me (I just got an invite to a class this weekend, and it said the instructors were sexy – ugh! Not going!) If you have a trashcan, a standing desk and a stapler, we’re ready.
Earlier this year, I got to sit down with Debra Lieberman, OTR/L, CEAS of Ergoworks Consulting, a company focused on injury prevention and providing the services of ergonomic specialists in the D.C. area.

Debra then spent time doing hand therapy at Fairfax Hospital and worked on repetitive strain injuries in outpatient clinics. Even today, she notices people are overusing their hands, especially on iPhones.
