StorkStand turns any office chair into a standing desk
Work & Lifestyle
StorkStand is an affordable add-on for any office chair that enables users to quickly create a sturdy standing desk.
Working in an office all day is damaging our health, according to experts who are now suggesting that sitting is the new smoking. While ideas such as the Stir Kinetic Desk — which gently rises to ensure workers stand up at regular intervals — offer a rather pricey solution, StorkStand is an affordable add-on for any office chair that enables users to quickly create a sturdy standing desk.
The device consists of a board which can be easily attached to the back of any chair. It uses a strap to secure it in place, and an adustable bracket that enables users to position the desk at their optimum angle. Rather than forcing individual workers or offices to invest in expensive standing desks, the StorkStand is a portable and sleek alternative that can be employed only when it's needed. When it's not, it can be easily stored away. One benefit over other standing desks is that, when used with a swivel chair, the desk becomes moveable, and it can also be used as a presentation stand.

Available for pre-order at USD 199, the device enables employees to switch to a standing desk quickly and easily, encouraging a more healthy working lifestyle. Are there other ways to encourage office workers to avoid sitting for the whole day?
