Standing Desk Converter

Best standing desk converter
A riser desk, or standing desk converter, is a device that rests on top of your desk and raises your workstation up and down so you can sit or stand at work. They are smaller and generally less expensive than full standing desks. If you aren’t ready to invest in a full standing desk or can’t replace your existing desk (for instance, if it’s too difficult to move or if your office doesn’t allow employees to order new desks), then a riser desk is ideal.
If you’ve determined a riser desk is right for you, there are many options (and plenty of them cheap quality). It’s increasingly important to do your research before buying, or you may end up with a model that is suboptimal for your needs. Information on these products is often coded in technical jargon, creating a maze the uninitiated consumer has to wade through. Z-Lifts, Dual ergonomics, dropped keyboard trays, VESA mounts—it’s important to know these technical terms so you can find the right riser desk for your work style, body type, and office area.
