Why Use a Standing Desk?
If you must work at a desk, science shows standing is healthier than sitting. Sitting shortens your muscles and tendons, compresses your spine and doesn’t promote movement. On the other hand, using a standing desk puts your spine in a stable position, allows you to stretch your muscles, and encourages you to move more throughout your day. The chair is a great tool for resting, but prolonged sitting causes dysfunction in your body.

- "I love my Oristand! And oddly, my colleagues who spent hundreds of dollars on metal, plastic and wood mechanical standing desks are jealous of my $29 folding cardboard desk. We'll be ordering two more and I'll be sharing my happiness..."Marc Matheson
- "The Oristand standup desk is crazy perfect! I love that it folds flat and can be stowed away at night. This is giving me an option to defy the status quo sit all day work space and for a fraction of what other desktop stand up desks cost!"Diane Riser
