If you’re still working from home, creating a long-term office space might be the next thing on your to-do list. You’ve got the laptop. The office supplies are already bought. Your filing system is meticulously organized. And your desk…

Admit it, sitting at your desk during an eight-hour shift is super uncomfortable. If you’re popping pain killers after a nine-to-five, you either have an overbearing boss or, more likely, need to make a change in your work environment. Since furnishing your office with a brand-new desk can get pretty pricey, why not consider a desk converter?

More and more people are making the switch to ergonomically friendly workspaces. With only the click of a button or the turn of knob, you can go from sitting to standing (and back again!) without missing a beat. That means you can focus more on your business and less on how to heal your neck and back pain.
