Why SmartLegs by LifeDesk?

The BEST and most affordable solution to create a proper sit-stand workstation

The SmartLegs accessory by LifeDesk replaces the original legs for supports. Their unique telescoping design smoothly raises or lowers the desk to settings unique to the individual user. SmartLegs by LifeDesk deliver equal comfort and ergonomic excellence in both sitting and standing configurations.


SmartLegs by LifeDesk are electric, allowing users to simply push a button to effortlessly raise and lower their work surface to their own unique pre-set heights.  Unlike with above-desk units, they will never need to strain to push down or pull up their work surface. And the cost of electricity to power a LifeDesk is less than $5 per year, a fraction of the cost of absenteeism due to workplace injuries.

In the standing position, SmartLegs by LifeDesk provide unsurpassed strength supporting up to 525 pounds. It is the only solution with custom feet designed for increased stability. It is simply the most stable Sit-Stand solution available.


The flexibility of SmartLegs by LifeDesk makes them fit virtually every type of desk or tabletop, including L-shaped, U-shaped, executive and cubicle desks. Since they are installed under an existing desk, there is no need to buy a new desk.

Since SmartLegs by LifeDesk are installed under your desk, they do not take up any of your valuable workspace, unlike desktop units. And you can see across your desk to speak to guests and colleagues without a desktop unit in your way.

SmartLegs by LifeDesk provide an affordable solution that you cannot afford to be without.

Work Healthier

Do you employ office workers or seated assembly workers?
These types of employees are typically classified as sedentary due to the amount of sitting they do while performing their job. Sedentary behavior has been associated with the development of several chronic diseases.

Do you have an aging workforce?
Older workers are more susceptible to developing musculoskeletal disorders due to deconditioning and loss of tissue elasticity as they age.

Have any of your employees had an incidence of Low Back Pain?
About 67% of the workforce reports some form of musculoskeletal discomfort in the workplace, with LBP being most common. 8% of the workforce will actually go on Short Term Disability costing an average of $7000 and 36 days.

Do you find yourself competing for intellectual and/or younger talent?
Sit-Stand desks are a benefit that most younger staff and higher-wage workers are used to having at previous jobs.

Do you feel that your staff is disengaged?
According to Gallup, 72% of the workforce is disengaged. Many have the perception of their employer doesn’t care about their health or long term success.

Does your team suffer from low morale in the workplace?
Sit-stand desks can energize a workforce.



Is your company self-insured?
The cost of one claim can often pay for Sit-Stand desks for an entire division, especially when you factor both direct and indirect costs. The average costs of lower back surgery may be upwards of $80,000. Even more for a mission-critical employee.

Does your company have a higher rate of absenteeism than normal?
According to SHRM, the average rate of absenteeism is 4.5 days per year. Most cited reasons are physical and mental health. Simply standing and moving in the workplace has been shown to physiologically reduce cortisol (aka the stress hormone) levels in the blood.

Does your team suffer from productivity decreases after lunch?
Post lunch blood glucose levels can be reduced by 50% simply by standing at least 15 minutes after lunch. By reducing glucose, the body is less susceptible to the sugar blues associated with sluggishness and fatigue.

Do you currently use Desk on Desk solutions such as Varidesk in your office?
Did you know that these devices don’t encourage frequent transition (ie movement) and place employees at risk due to their heft and awkward sitting postures required for use. Ergonomically, they only fit about 5-10% of the population.
