Fortunately for us, and as well as for the consumers, manufacturers stayed on track of making newer models with better ergonomic features. One relatively new product out there is the UpTrak Sit-Stand Desk, a compact and portable desktop riser that provides stable and secured sit-stand setup for laptop  and desktop users. The best thing about this product is its affordable price. But is it a reliable choice for everyday use? Read this in-depth review to know more.

Who is it for?

UpTrak Sit-Stand Desk is for anyone looking for an affordable but dependable sit-stand desktop riser. It doesn’t offer anything fancy, and it’s pretty basic and straightforward, but it gets the job done, and solidly built for most work spaces.

It’s also perfect for people working on limited spaces, such as cubicles and home office with small work space.

 

 

Benefits

Standing have long been proven to be way healthier than sitting, which is why more and more ergonomic solutions providers make and promote standing and sit-stand workstations to encourage computer users to stand more and sit less. And this is what the UpTrak Sit-Stand Desk is about – it provides flexibility for both sitting and standing, as well as allows quick and easy transitions between the two positions, anytime.

The worksurface comes with an added resting arm for the mouse for ergonomics.

Revolutionary Design for Easy Transitions from Sitting to Standing

UpTrak Sit-Stand Desk offers quite a unique design that we don’t normally see from most sit-stand desktop risers. The stand allows easy changing from sitting to standing, and vice versa. It is light weight and its small footprint means it only takes a small space on your existing desk

There are two flat boards in this product, the first on works as the base, which provides stable and steady support, while the second one is the adjustable surface computer users will be working on.

 

Smooth Tracks and Locks for Smooth Transition and Secured Hold

The work surface slides up and down the steel tracks smoothly with the help of the two levers (one on each side). There are security locks to secure the platform on your desired height and keep your computer secured and safe, while the support leg ensures secured hold for the work surface.

 

Small, Compact and Portable to Fit Most Desks and Easy to Carry Around

As with most desktop risers, the UpTrak Sit-Stand Desk is compact, lightweight, and has small footprint. This means you can easily fold it and carry from work to home, or anywhere you wish to work on.

Easy Setup and Adjustments

The UpTrak Sit-Stand Desk is quite easy to setup and use, it can be done in as fast as 15 minutes. You will need a screwdriver assemble the whole thing. Also, there’s a brace located at the back to keep your laptop or computer monitor from tipping backwards (which is crucial when changing the height of the desk), also a great security feature for touchscreen displays.

 

After that, all you need to do is place it on top of their desk, adjust the height according height requirements, insert the third support leg to keep it sable, and voila! You’re ready to work. Should you need to re-adjust, simply remove the support leg, open both side levers, and then slide the desk surface through its metal tracks. You can even adjust and re-adjust the height with your laptop or monitor and keyboard on the work surface, or switch from sitting to standing position anytime you want.

Also, the telescopic legs allow users to set the desktop to multiple of heights.

 

Solidly Built and Impressive Support

The telescopic support for the front may seem a bit odd, but it’s an ingenious solution that gets the job done. You can also mark its exterior to easily find your desired height. It can support a maximum weight of up to 25 lbs., which should be more than enough for most computer setups.

 

Nicely Finished Surface to Fit Most Workspaces

The top surface of UpTrak Sit-Stand Desk comes with a nice and smooth finish. It is also wipeable, making it easy to clean and maintain.
