Even though I ditched my big Teacher Desk a couple of years ago, I was still stuck with my teacher work station. It connects the computer, phone, printer, etc. and I cannot get rid of it. This is where I can sit to take attendance or enter in grades. It is sort of a mess and I have never liked the setup, but I just figured that I did not have other options. I was wrong though.
I was able to put a Flexispot on top of my work station and move items below it to open up some room and allow me to stand and work if I want.
As you can see, the Flexispot allows the user to adjust the height so you can use it while sitting or standing. There is a nice spot for a portable device to sit, like I did with the iPad, there is a keyboard shelf that holds my keyboard nicely, and there is plenty of room for the monitor, mouse, and pencil holder. I could move my Chromebook there if I needed.
I am able to raise or lower the Flexispot by pressing two handles on the side. It will glide up or down to fit my needs. My items are secure on the top and do not budge as I move it. You need to make sure your wires have enough slack to move up and down. I learned that the hard way the first time I tried to bring it up. :-P
I've been using it for a few days and I have liked the ability to just stand and do attendance or address an email very quickly from another teacher. Also, it is much healthier to be standing than sitting all day. I do not sit much through out the day, but what little sitting I did do, has been nearly eliminated by using the Flexispot.
If you are looking for a change to your classroom desk situation or your home office setup, the Flexispot would be a nice addition to get you working on your feet in no time. Check it out on Amazon to see the great reviews and find the Flexispot that is best for you.
Flexispot did send me one for the purpose of a review, but that does not make it any less awesome and helpful in my classroom.
