Hey there, my name is Daniel and I created this site because I struggled for years with lower back pain due to SITTING ALL DAY at work. Each day/month/year my back got worse and worse and eventually it got so bad I decided to look into getting a sit/stand desktop instead of just stacking books up.
What a difference! My workday did a complete 180. Granted, I still do have some back issues, but without the sit/stand option, I wouldn’t have been able to work another day I was in so much pain. Now it’s manageable.
Personally, I feel that everyone should be using a desk that allows them to stand up at least part of the day. I think 10 years from now almost every employer will make this standard. But who knows? I could be wrong.
Either way, human beings simply are not meant to sit for 8 hours a day/5 days a week. It is terrible for you in every way possible and yet it’s just something that people have to live with.
I created this site primarily to help people deal with back pain at work, and clearly, want to help people find a sit/stand desk that works for them. But really I want to help improve your work-life in all aspects.
Hopefully, this site helps you mitigate at least some of the pain you have to deal with while working and provides value in helping you get through your workday.
Also, a couple things I would like to share with you as I want to be completely transparent to my readers, here are a couple disclaimers.
First, although I review standing desks, unfortunately, I can’t personally use every one that I review. Don’t worry though, I extensively research every product to give you the best review I possibly can, and my experience with several standing desks allows me to know what to look for when looking for a sit/stand desk.
Even on reviews that I have written prior to trying out desks, after later trying them out my reviews have been on point and not much if anything needed to be updated. The reviews I am giving are as accurate as possible and of course won’t be perfect, but ideally will be enough to help you find what you are looking for.
Second, I use affiliate programs for a lot of the products I review. So this means, at no extra cost to you, I may earn a small commission if you use one of the links on this site. If you would like for me to not receive a commission then you can simply not click the links I provide. cough**haters 🙂 jk jk
I also have some sit/stand desks concepts I have created but until that takes off this website is here to help with the best options available. Good luck finding a standing desk that works for you.
