This wiki has been updated 5 times since it was first published in September of 2020. Sitting for long periods of time can be damaging to your health and can create all sorts of issues with posture and leg and lower back pain. Using a stand-up desk can help offset these problems by allowing the blood to circulate and muscles to be exercised. These electric frames can go from a seating to a standing height at the push of a button, ensuring users remain comfortable while working. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

September 29, 2020:

With today's sedentary lifestyles and workplaces, more and more people are suffering from posture and back-related issues. Health experts recommend exercising regularly throughout the day to promote blood circulation and to relax muscles, but for many, this may not be possible or convenient. An electric desk, however, could be the solution as it allows the user to change their body position while still continuing to work. At the push of a button, a seating work station can become a standing work station, thus alleviating the usual issues with aches and pains.

The Electric desk frames we selected for this ranking are all similar in design and basically perform the same function. When choosing a suitable one for your home or office you will need to consider several factors such as; weight capacity, extension sizes, ease of use, and stability. Most frames follow a two-legged design which is adequate for most workspace needs, however, if you require a very high weight capacity, the Uplift V2 offers an impressive 545-pound limit, and has four legs with individual motors in each, making it one of the strongest desks on the market. The Seville Classics Airlift S3, the Vivo Stand Up, and the AdvanceUp Dual Motor, on the other hand, are all two-legged options that are sturdy enough for regular computer equipment and daily paraphernalia. The latter features two USB charging points and comes with a five-year warranty on the motors.

For those wanting an alternative to a rectangular desk, the Vivo Corner and the Progressive Automations Corner Frame are three-legged options that can be used to create a 90-degree corner desk and a 120-degree L-shaped desk, respectively, while the versatile Direction Desk Legs can be used with any shaped tabletop, since the legs are not attached to each other, and can be positioned independently where necessary. The Monoprice Workstream is notable due to the fact that it has one of the lowest minimum heights on the market at a mere 24 inches, making it a good choice for those with children. The Flybold Office Workstation features a highly programable controller that boasts three memory modes and a timer setting that allows you to set your standing time goals. This one also comes with an anti-fatigue mat which can be beneficial in easing leg, foot, and lower back pain.
