AUSTIN, Texas, Nov. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Ergonomic leader Ergoprise, based in Austin, Texas, has recently developed the UpriseDesk. The goal of creating this desk is to offer the highest quality standing desk that any Fortune 100 company would be proud to use, while offering a price point that anyone can afford. It's available as a base only, or with a number of tabletop options including bamboo and other fine hardwood tops. The Uprise leads the pack of sit/stand desks in terms of price, speed, stability, and noise level.
All sit/stand desks provide a way for users to combat the physiological changes associated with "sitting disease". This has been termed the "smoking of the new millennium," as it has been found to have just as many harmful effects. Although all sit/stand desks work as advertised, only the UpriseDesk has the speed and performance to be used as it is intended to be used - moving throughout day. It's fast - moving at 1.7 inches a second. Most electric desks move at a snail's pace, which can cause the user to be become disenchanted and not want to use the equipment. When properly using a sit-to-stand desk, one should change positions numerous times during the work period.
It is also nearly silent at 39 decibels. Its normal sound output when raised or lowered is commonly referred to as "library quiet". This is a very important element especially when the desk is deployed in expansive cubical settings or open collaborative layouts. When there is a lack of walls, it is very crucial that the desk is quiet while moving so it will not disturb others.
The UpriseDesk is an innovative alternative to the selection of sit/stand desks already available today, which are either noisy, move extremely slow, or a combination of the two. "The quality, functionality, and price are what make the Uprise Desk so outstanding among the current sit-to-stand desks in the marketplace," said Stephanie Gilbert, CEO of Ergoprise.
A progressive computer processor manufacturer based in Sunnyvale, Calif., with another major campus in Austin, Texas, is one of a number of large and small corporations that have committed to use the Uprise Desk to serve the needs of all their employees.
Ergoprise's UpriseDesk also beats the competition in terms of sturdiness, stability and power consumption. The desk's three stroke lifting columns raise and lower the desk from 24" to 50.75" high. Its motors have 360 pounds of lifting power, and there is very little side-to-side movement, even when the desk is fully extended or at its maximum height of over 51". In terms of power consumption, the Uprise is one of the greenest electric desks on the market, using only 0.06 watts of power when in standby mode.
If you already have your own desktop, the standing desk can be purchased as a base only option which allows the user to keep their existing top (see size guidelines). This is a great way to recycle and reuse. If a desktop needs to be purchased, Ergoprise offers a variety of tops from GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certified® and GREENGUARD for Children and Schools Certified laminates to environmentally harvested bamboo for additional costs.
