(both from front and side of the desk for testing front-to-back stability & left-to-right stability). The smaller the fluctuation, the more stars relevant desk gets.

  • DUAL MOTOR
    Powered by two motors, this kind of desk is more expensive than the other models. Dual motor desks are best for those who have a bulkier setup as there are individual motors that support each leg. You also get better stability as well as overall usability.
  • SINGLE MOTOR
    The single motor desk is ideal for lightweight use. It is efficient in terms of adjustment but has limited weight capacity features.
  • MANUAL MOTOR
    Manual desks do not use a motor to lift the tabletop. They rely on a crank or handle to raise and lower the desk. While it requires a bit more effort, it is more affordable than its motorized counterparts.
  • PREMIUM KEYPAD
    When you want to have an ultra-tech desk, do it with our premium keypad! You can move your desk up and down and key in three height adjustment presets and also features an LED display with your preferred desk height. The keypad also has a programmable timer that alerts you to switch positions now and then.
  • ADVANCED KEYPAD
    With the advanced keypad, you can enjoy the sit-stand reminder, more preset positions, as well as the anti-collision feature. The LED display automatically enters sleep mode when the desk is stationary.
  • BASIC KEYPAD
    The basic keypad features two buttons that are used to adjust the tabletop. With its simple up and down buttons, you can raise and lower your desk in a jiffy.
  • ANTI COLLISION FEATURE
    Smart enough to know when it's headed for trouble - when the desk sensors the obstruction, it will automatically stop in mid-motion, avoiding any contact
  • CHILD LOCK
    It further ensures safety by locking the tabletop in position until an adult deactivates the child lock.
  • 3-STAGE LEG
    With a three-section leg support system, you can expect more in terms of loading capacity and speed. It is the ideal choice for users who use heavy gadgets and those who are taller above the average height as it can adjust up to 1280 mm.
  • 2-STAGE LEG
    A desk with two-section legs as a base might be lightweight, but it can still lift a significant amount of weight at an impressive lifting speed. The only downside is that it has a limited height range up to only 1190mm.
  • ENHANCED COLUMNS
    Enhanced columns can handle more weight but tend to be slower in movement. These desks are ideal if you have an extensive equipment setup.
  • INVERTED COLUMNS
    The columns in this unit become thinner as it rises. Desks with this kind of design are perfect if you are looking for a standing desk that is fast and lightweight.

Accessories Intro
  • Caster
    Imagine hearing a screeching sound while moving a piece of furniture–possibly ruining it. This calls the need for a caster, an undriven wheel with a mount. The accessory maneuvers objects from a stationary position and once locked, would sit firmly on the ground. They are good desk height enhancers and make standing desks flexible and mobile.
  • Power Strip
    Working with multiple gadgets requires extra outlet space for charging. Power cables are usually too short so creating several power outlets around your workstation won’t provide a solution. Enter power strips. Thanks to Flexispot, standing desks came with power strips. Owners benefit from better cable management and less clutter, even having Type A and Type C USB ports for phones.
  • Monitor arms
    Monitors should be placed at an arm's distance and must be above eye level. This ideal position is achieved by using monitor arms, also known as a monitor bracket. Attached to a desk or a wall, it carries and supports one to two monitors and leaves space on the desk area for other essentials.
  • Under Desk drawer
    Except for a few artistic folk, a cluttered office desk reduces a person's productivity. Needing easy access to files and personal effects doesn’t justify a messy table. Pair a desk with a Flexispot under-desk drawer, and you’ll have better desktop management. It keeps urgent documents and personal effects accessible and out of your way at the same time.
  • Keyboard Tray
    Many don't know that keyboard trays were built to afford ease and convenience. There’s limited room to get the most comfortable keyboard angle if it is placed directly on your desk and over time, your wrist and forearms could possibly suffer. Keyboard trays allow you to work your wrist in the 'negative position.’ It's also space-saving, giving additional space on the main desk area.
  • Anti-Fatigue Mat
    Standing desks, from distinguished brands like FlexiSpot, have seen a steady increase in demand. But only a few know of anti-fatigue mats. These mats are ergonomically designed to reduce the strain of prolonged standing that results in fatigue and decreased focus. They alleviate foot aches with its cushioning effect. It massages your feet and its mounds allow for better circulation.
  • Mouse Pad
    Mouse pads used to be in vogue. Most people did not know its use, but used it anyway. Its glory days have long been gone, even though people still use their mouse and wrists in all directions. They probably aren’t updated with modern-day mouse pads that provide ergonomic relief to the wrist. They also protect your mouse, allowing for easy movement.
  • Cable Management
    People seem to think we already live in a wireless world with no more need for cable management. We still don’t, and entangled wires might cause accidents such as tripping and starting a fire. Moreover, fixing the entanglement could strain the back. Luckily, Flexispot offers standing desks with built-in cable management, featuring a cable management tray that organizes wires properly.
  • File Cabinet
    Having a standing desk with a spacious desktop and an under-desk drawer is a jackpot. But merely relying on an under-desk drawer for storage and organization is not enough. It’s much better to have a separate filing cabinet that offers a wide storage room, and even a file hanger in selected models. Compact and mobile, they can slide and fit under a standing desk.
  • Desk Organizer
    You can make a spacious desktop surface area even more spacious with a desk organizer. With a desk organizer, you can conveniently place all work essentials on your table top without encumbering the whole space. One with multiple compartments will conveniently store things on your desk without needing a cabinet storage system. They even add an aesthetic appeal to your desk.
  • Desk Lamp
    A desk lamp, although elegant and stylish, also provides function. Natural lighting is good but it cannot focus its light to a specific task area whereas a table lamp can do so. Its position is customizable to maximize the light coming from it. A person with weak eyes is advised to use one for a clearer view and as a protector from eye strain.
How to choose a standing desk -- Factors to consider
Stability:
You'll want to be sure that the desk you purchase is stable and doesn't wobble or shake as you work, which can be distracting and potentially dangerous. Be sure to check for back-to-front and side-to-side wobble.
Height Range:
In regards to height range, you should consider a standing desk that adjusts all the way from your upper height while standing and lower height while sitting. Standing desks have different height adjustment ranges; therefore, you need to pick out one that accommodates you while in a fully seated and fully standing position. An optimal height range of 22.6″ to 48.7″ is recommended by BIFMA. Shorter people should focus on the lower height limit and sitting height, while taller people should focus on the upper limit and standing height to ensure an ergonomic fit. To be on the safe side, pick a desk with a larger height adjustment range if your setup is a shared workspace to accommodate the entire height range of your workers.
Desk Depth:
The front-to-back tabletop distance as you face the desk is also crucial. It determines the distance between the monitor and the user, impacting visual preferences and work comfort. A 30″ desk depth is often recommended, but you'll need to consider the shape of the desktop and how you'll want to spread out your tools on the workspace.
Weight Capacity:
This number tells you how much weight the desk can hold without breaking or experiencing negative effects.. Bear in mind that the maximum weight indicated includes the weight of the desktop. Consider one that lifts at least 150 lbs.
Adjustment Speed:
With a fast height adjustment speed, you'll alternate between standing and sitting quickly. An optimum height adjustment speed of around 1.3 to 1.7 inches/second is essential to minimize unwarranted distractions.
Noise Considerations:
If the lifting mechanism is loud, it can be disruptive. Interfere with the activities in your surroundings. Noise is Noise is measured in decibels; noise of fewer than 60 decibels is often recommended for a standing desk.
Work Surface Material:
There are many different materials used in standing desks, including wood laminate, medium-density fiberboard (MDF), tempered glass, metal, and bamboo. But when it comes to materials, tempered glass, natural wood, and bamboo are more durable and aesthetically pleasing than other options.
Safety Features:
Look for desks with anti-collision features and safety certification marks like UL or ETL to ensure that your desk has been tested and proven safe for use.
