It's easier to just have 2 stations.

One for standing one for sitting.


You'll get bored making the thing go up and down after a week, and it'll begin to feel like a major hassle.


This is the same problem with full size sit stand desks.

or have a treadmill desk and a sitting desk

my office has a treadmill desk, and it was the only dedicated standing desk in the office, all the others were just height adjustable desks

Ideally what you want, is a standing desk with at least a 50 inch monitor..

That way, you can stand ~6 meters away.

The distance helps ones eyes relaxx and enter its natural focus and vergence state..

Varidesk is a good product. Comparing with Varidesk, FlexiSpot ClassicRiser moves straight up and down that is more stable even at its highest level. And it's more suitable for people who has limited work space. The desktop surface is more spacious than that of Varidesk so that you can put paperwork, laptop or other accessories on it.

Got a clamp version uplift desk for the office specifically because it puts the keyboard below the desk height.  I run a 27" monitor, freestyle2 and M570.

Have had it for a few months now, love it.  I've seen a few varidesks in the office, they're overly huge to me.

I've had my Uplift desk for 3+ years now.
Base + cable management kit + monitor arm were $597, and I repurposed the top of an IKEA table.
Totally worth it.

I can definitely recommend getting an anti-fatique mat.  Seems to halve the discomfort in my legs and feet.

I tried the Hard type antifatigue mat, and it didn't work as well for me as the soft type.

However the soft type, like the foam play mats sold at harbor freight, they're too delicate for shoes.. so you gotta go barefoot on them.

In a cubicle you can do it, and when you walk out, put ur shoes on..   Or if you work in a place where they allow casual wear.
