The DeskRiser is a heavy duty height adjustable standing desk that sits on top of your existing desk and promotes better posture, reduced back and neck pain, a thinner waist line and increased productivity. The DeskRiser top platform adjusts from its lowest height of 6.5 inches to its highest height of 16.5 inches, tall enough to accommodate anyone up to 6’2″. It ships fully assembled – just lift it up out of the box and its ready to be placed on your desktop! The 32-inch wide desktop work surface provides ample room for dual 24-inch monitors and still has room left over for your notepad, pen, stick notes and more.
We have found that our standing desks tend to boost our staff’s energy, particularly in the after lunch “food coma” period when our bodies are digesting food and putting us in a state of drowsiness. A good deal of scientific research has also come out recently in support of standing desks, showing some of the following benefits from switching to a stand up desk:
- decreased risk of cancer
- decreased risk of cardiovascular disease
- up to 45% boost in employee productivity(1)
- reduced back and neck pain

Q: How high is the keyboard at its maximum height? I’m a tall person (6’1″) and am concerned about my arm position.A: It works best for people 5ft to 6ft 3in when sitting on a 29in high desk. For taller people consider a taller desk underneath or try out any of our Taller Standing Desks.
Q: When the unit is lowered all the way, does it actually take up more space than 20.5 inches listed for depth?A: Yes, the desk swings forward a few inches as it is lifted up. The total footprint is approximately 24 to 25in from the front to the back. The desktop hangs over the back of the support bars when it is lowered and it hangs slightly over the front of the support bars when it is raised.
Q: Is the distance between the keyboard tray and desktop / monitor platform adjustable?A: No, the distance is fixed between the keyboard tray and the desktop. The keyboard tray slides in and out but not up and down.
Q: I am making entries from bank statements etc. Is there room on the riser to set paperwork on it?A: Yes, an 8.5 x 11 fits, depending of course on your setup. If you have a dual monitor setup with the monitor bases at each corner of the desktop then you should have plenty of space to fit a notebook or paperwork on it.
Q: I’m concerned about weight distribution by having a 27″ iMac and a 20″ Apple monitor. Should I be concerned?A: The DeskRiser is rated and tested to support up to 50 lbs but the recommended total weight is about 35 lbs if you will be keeping heavier objects on it for an extended period of time. Just be sure to distribute the weight evenly to prevent anything from toppling over.
Q: Does this require any assembly?A: There is no assembly required. Just pull it out the box and you’re ready to go! We do advise testing it out a few times first before putting anything on it. Just lift and lower it a few times to get a hang of it.
