Elevate | Portable Standing Workstation

Elevate comes from New Zealand, a solution to get a better balance between working sitting down and standing up. Elevate transforms any table or working station that you use sitting down, into a more ergonomically designed standing work post, no more need to bend over your keyboard to see whatīs on your monitorīs screen. Itīs lightweight, portable, with a great design, easy to assemble and disassemble and to define the different height levels you want to put to use, no tools needed. Elevate provides a higher position for the screen, and a middle platform for a secondary keyboard and mouse, so you donīt get the whole elevation of the work station, you get different levels, because your bodyīs needs change, when youīre sitting or standing. The idea behind this project is also to reduce prolonged sitting, thus enhancing position shifting in order to reduce health risks that derive from it. Made from natural, strong birch, with no chemical finish, itīs also environmentally friendly. Elevate is beautiful, healthy and useful. watch the video
