This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.
An innovative, high quality and affordable alternative to the big, bulky and prohibitively expensive industry standard height adjustable desks. In addition to chronic back and shoulder pain, multiple studies have shown that prolonged sitting can increase the risk of heart disease, cancer, stroke and a myriad of other serious ailments. Their search for healthful solutions led to the creation of the Uprite Ergo Sit2Stand Workstation. Height adjustable desks can be prohibitively expensive and usually require the replacement of existing furniture. Desktop units that exist today are cumbersome, obtrusive and still very expensive.
The Uprite Ergo Sit2Stand Workstation is a durable, affordable, aesthetically pleasing height adjustable workstation that occupies a small footprint on an existing desk or table. The Sit2Stand Workstation moves easily from a lowered to a raised position allowing a quick transition from sitting to standing while working. The Sit2Stand Workstation is perfectly balanced and offers smooth and effortless upward and downward movement. It’s faster and more convenient than electric height adjustable desks. Specifically designed to accommodate all standard keyboard and mouse configurations with additional space reserved for wrist-pads if desired. The Sit2Stand Workstation also features a convenient slide-out / slide-in work surface designed to accommodates a calculator, notepad, phone, office supplies, your healthy snacks or any number of items that fit your work.
