It’s possible to affordably upgrade existing desks with a sit-stand desk converter. But with so many brands, how do you choose the right one?
Ergotron is sponsoring ErgoExpo’s May Wednesday Webinar. The event features Ergotron’s CEO, Peter Segar, and Director. Mustafa Ergun, who will be sharing Egotron’s design criteria for professional grade sit-stand workstations. They hope to raise awareness about the importance of ergonomic ranges when choosing solutions across a broad population of users. This knowledge will aid business understanding of the critical design elements involved in creating a sit-stand workstation that is safe and reliable for years to come.
When asked how the desk was received at the event, Bob Hill, Ergotron’s Education Industry Manager replied, “How many times have we heard a teacher ask a kid to stay seated in the classroom? Teachers get it.” What they “get” are children’s impulses to move. And how that movement is linked to brain development and ultimately performance. Read the news >
Let’s all salute the office pioneers who, braving co-worker ridicule and IT angst, reached for the boxes, books, and other cube accessories to create stand-up desks in their sit-only landscapes.
Folks like Nikki, Amy, Ryan and the others, what were they hoping for? More energy, more focus, or maybe even for a back pain free day away from a sit-only workstyle. Like them, Ergotron is focused on pioneering workstations that get people moving too.

Making it to the big time often means long stints at the computer. Meet Nick, a director and editor living in Los Angeles, working on anything from commercials and music videos to film and television. He admits post-production can do a number on the body.

Can we all say the same? We should. See Nick’s story.
