There are a number of desktop converters on the market, designed for use with a fixed-height desk. These units are clamped or freestanding on the desk surface, and raise to allow you to stand while you work. Our favorite is our very own UPLIFT Desk Converter, which has a great price, a 16″ height range, and a smooth pneumatic lift. However, if you need something with a very small footprint and a wide range of movement, the Humanscale QuickStand Lite is an excellent option.
Available in single or dual monitor versions, the QuickStand Lite features simple and smooth fingertip adjustment, allowing you to move your monitor and keyboard up and down, side to side, and closer to or further away from you. This makes it easier than ever to transition smoothly from sitting to standing, with a smaller footprint and more adjustability than its predecessor, the standard QuickStand. The unit can be positioned anywhere in its 20″ height range, accommodating both shorter and taller users, and includes 5.5″ of vertical monitor adjustment. That means you can place both your monitor and keyboard exactly where you need them for optimal ergonomic positioning. With a total weight capacity of 25 pounds, the QuickStand Lite works for the majority of monitor/keyboard combinations.
If you have one monitor now but anticipate adding another in the future, there is no need to buy and entirely new model. Instead, you can convert your single QuickStand Lite to a dual with just a couple of parts. Throw a 5-year warranty into the bargain, and you have a height-adjustable workstation that will stick with you for the long haul.
The QuickStand Lite is available in black or white, with a clamp or grommet mount. While we recommend a full height-adjustable desk for those who have the option, the QuickStand Lite is a great option for tight spaces requiring a small footprint but a lot of adjustability.
