PRLog - March 7, 2012 - GAINESVILLE, Ga. -- The Desktop Elevator is a unique product that significantly improves desk ergonomics! Other sit-and stand solutions require complete replacement of the current desk, which can be a costly and wasteful decision. The Desktop Elevator simply sits atop the existing desk and there is no need to buy new drawers or filing cabinets or even transfer desk contents.

Whether for home or business, this beautiful and affordable innovation reinvents the adjustable-height work-surface at a small fraction of the cost of other sit and stand desks. Thanks to the patent pending gas spring design, the Elevator raises and lowers effortlessly;
The Desktop Elevator is the most cost-effective tool you can buy to improve your productivity, work satisfaction, and most importantly, your overall health.
Sitting all day has been proven to cause many serious health problems. The Desktop Elevator facilitates intermittent standing during the workday which positively impacts: Back and Neck Pain including Herniated Disks, Posture Core Muscle Strength, Cholesterol and Heart/Circulatory Issues, and Metabolism, Obesity and Diabetes.
In addition to the obvious back related health benefits, a growing body of evidence indicates standing desks could be life-savers!
Prolonged sitting has been linked with cardiovascular disease, blood clots, diabetes, obesity and early death. In a March interview with AARP, Marc Hamilton, a physiologist at Pennington Bio-medical Research Center went so far as to declare that "Sitting is the new Smoking".
"Basically, if you are going to sit for long periods of time, you will die earlier," says Karen Marchi, manager of health and wellness for Bayer Corp.
"There are multiple sources saying the same thing: Inactivity, expecially in the form of sitting, seems to be a big risk factor," says cardiologist Christine Lawless, co-chairman of the American College of Cardiology Sports and Exercise Cardiology Council.
Research also shows lumbar disc pressure is at least 50% higher in a seated position compared to standing. Standing intermittently during the workday lessens spinal compression, increases core strength, and reduces the need for extended work breaks. The increased blood flow and more "alert" position naturally result in higher productivity, better cardio function and better overall health.
The Desktop Elevator is a unique innovation that offers a lower cost alternative to other adjustable height desks which require desk removal, purchase of stationary filing cabinets, and special trucking arrangements. The "Elevator" doesnft replace the desk, but rather sits atop it. It's a far more convenient, elegant and affordable solution, nd it's eco-responsible too as no electricity is required. The lifting is created by three gas springs in perfect balance within the walls of the hutch and is designed to be strong and stable at both the sitting and standing position.
Eight height sizes are offered to provide a customized fit. Assembly is easy as all moving parts are pre-assembled so you go from box to desktop in minutes. The natural cherry and dark cherry provide a fine furniture quality look, while the grey and tan match most office cubicles. Visit www.desktopelevator.com for more info and watch http://youtu.be/
