So what should you   get

When buying a table stand-up converter, the first thing you should   avoid falling into the trap of having something for everyone.  Every person has different wants and needs,   and you want the one that can offer you more benefits with the least amount   of disadvantage.  With that clarified,   it’s time to cover some of the finer details.


As you may have noticed, stand up desk converter prices vary a   lot.  Hence, it is better to start on a   clear budget before considering a single article.  If you do it the other way around, you will   likely spend too much.

Another important point is to make sure you are on your   pre-defined budget.


Height is arguably the most important factor to consider when   purchasing a stand-up desk converter.    In most cases, a desktop stand-up converter is placed on a regular   desk.  Therefore, measuring the correct   height also depends on the height of the desk.

First, stand in front of the desk where you will place the   product.  Then raise your forearm until   it reaches a 90-degree angle with your upper arm.  While staying in this position, you’ll want   to measure the distance between your hand and the top of the desk to get the   optimal height.  Whenever you buy a   table stand up converter, make sure it has a height adjustment that takes   into account the optimal height you just received.

Note that the 90 degree angle is considered optimal.  If the arms and hands are at a higher   angle, the standing desk converter is unnecessarily stressed.  Such a scenario could cause the unit to   collapse due to the added weight.  If   the angle is less than 90 degrees, your wrist is in an awkward and tense   position.  Remaining in such a position   causes discomfort in the short term and can lead to more serious problems   (e.g. tendinitis, arthritis) in the long term.


Another key factor is the device you put on top of the stand up   desk converter.  In most cases it is a   combination of laptop or monitor, keyboard and mouse.  Standing desk converters are usually   designed specifically for one of the two purposes.  Of course, some units can handle both.  However, it is likely to be more expensive   compared to a device that specializes in one type of device.

Material basics

The materials used can significantly affect the aesthetics, cost,   and longevity of the device.  Hence, it   is a factor that requires more attention than most people would   convey.

The conventional materials used to make a standing desk converter   are stainless steel, aluminum, wood and plastic.  Most of the time, some material types are   combined into one unit.

Below are a few brief points about the primary   materials.

  •     Stainless steel – Durable but can be   expensive.
  •     aluminum – Light but prone to scratches and   dents.
  •     Wood – Very nice, but can be   expensive.
  •     plastic – Very economical, but not   durable.

There are other factors that you should consider when purchasing a   device.  However, never forget the key   points mentioned above as they will serve as the basis for making a smart   purchase decision.
