With the increased awareness on the dangers of sitting too long
, office-folks are encouraged to switch from using traditional desks to standing desks when they work. However, the biggest downside has been the cost of these desks. From doing a quick Google search, the cheapest I found was at $699.
Now, thanks to 31-year-old entrepreneur Steven Yu, there is now an affordable product for anyone looking to get one of these bad boys. Compared to the competition, Yu’s product StandDesk sells for $399.
Yu came up with the idea after a motorcycle accident that left him requiring to sit less. He believes that the current standing desks in the market are more complex than they need to be, so his goal was to simplify everything while cutting costs without sacrificing quality.
It’s also very easy to put together:
StandDesk recently launched a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter with a goal of $50,000. As of today, the campaign has raised over $160,000.
It might be about time to get a new office desk. Who works standing up? Make some noise in the comments below!
