How is ZestDesk different from other standing desk products?

ZestDesk was developed by Dr Peter Moore, a back pain sufferer who understands the needs of the modern worker (he is a mobile worker himself). ZestDesk is the only portable, ergonomic solution with two adjustable levels to ensure good posture.

How can ZestDesk be so strong and yet so lightweight?

The structural components of ZestDesk are high-grade aluminium. The tabletop and monitor stand are laminated – the same as most office desks.

Need to sit?

Simply fold up ZestDesk or pull up a stool.

What if I buy ZestDesk and it isn’t for me?

We stand by our product so if ZestDesk is not for you, you can return it within 30 days of receipt of the product and receive a full refund, less shipping.

If I want to use two monitor stands, what size screens can I fit?

It depends upon whether the screens are angled or not. Assuming they are on the same plane and not overlapping, it would fit a] Two 17” screens/laptops B] A 22” plus a 13” screen/ laptop

Can I bring the screen closer to me?

You obviously do not want to place the screen right on the edge. A good rule of thumb would be to place it anywhere on the stand as long as most of the weight is placed on the back two thirds of the stand.

Is the monitor stand stable when it is fully extended?

Yes. The design of ZestDesk is unique. While being incredibly lightweight, ZestDesk is also very strong and stable and the unit will not bend or tip over at any height, regardless of the weight placed on it.

Will ZestDesk scratch my desk?

ZestDesk is specifically designed with non-marking rubber feet to ensure your desk will not be harmed. ZestDesk is also heat and stain resistant, so if you spill your drink, just wipe it clean with a damp cloth; no need for special cleaning products.

Could standing make my back/neck pain worse?

It is always a good idea to consult with a trusted health professional before making changes to your lifestyle.

Can I write comfortably using ZestDesk?

Yes. ZestDesk is built to enable the user to write and draw without experiencing any wobble or unsteadiness. ZestDesk is also strong enough to support an average adult’s weight, so you can safely lean on the desktop.

New User, smitten.

I am smitten with my ZestDesk. For years, I had noted to my partner about how sitting at a desk was inhibiting my productivity. The chief reasons for this were two. First, I have a bad lower back. Too much sitting, even for someone with a healthy back, is still too much. Add chronic discomfort and its very counter-productive. Second, I am one of the Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) nation. Sitting still isn't something I do well. With distractablity being heightened by stillness, again, sitting is NOT optimal. One day on Instagram, I stumbled across ZestDesk and showed it to my partner because it seemed like a good solution to my persistent, counter-productive problems. Being the angel she is, she put in an order while ZD was still in its prototype phase. I am forever thankful to her for doing so. Once my ZestDesk arrived, my hopes were met and my problems relieved, significantly. My ZD allows me the flexibility to work in more places, how I can best work in them. My back feels MUCH better. Standing allows me to shift my weight, walk about and focus my body better so my attention deficit is minimized appreciably. Also, getting on the floor has been an added bonus, as I sometimes prefer to sit in in lotus or half-lotus postion. The design of my ZestDesk is great. Its easy to open and collapse. Its weight is very manageable, factoring in for another bag carrying peripherals and personals. ZD also looks pretty cool, which doesn't hurt. If I were to suggest one change in ZestDesk's design, it would be in the platform's white laminate surface. It works just fine, and I'm sure it's weight consideration was part of its design choice. However, after working at my ZD for a while, the surface material doesn't feel great on my skin. I just wonder if a bamboo material could be considered in later versions. All in all, my ZestDesk has been a terriffic game changer. Thank you for the life-upgrade!!!

We all need a ZestDesk

After sacrificing my study for an extra bedroom that was needed I found myself working anywhere and everywhere, slumping over the edge of the lounge, or hunched over in bed while working on my laptop. My posture was suffering. The ZestDesk was the perfect solution. It's beautifully designed, super easy to set up, and turns out it's a great table for the kids to use when I'm not working on it! Win-win.

Fine build quality and finish.

Upon opening the box I was amazed at the quality. This desk “schinks”, “clicks” and locks into place like a fine piece of German engineering. A ZestDesk!

The right combination of mobility & build quality

I’ve had my ZestDesk now for approximately a month and have had some excellent results. I’ve noticed more circulation in my legs, less pressure on nerves and overall better comfort and health. It seems that I am more focused, which is likely a side effect of feeling better while working. Many standing desks will offer these same results however none, in my opinion, offer the right combination of the level of mobility, build quality, convenience and “commitment to standing” as the ZestDesk. There are many less expensive offerings for certain, but rest assured, you’ll find literally a “solid” product in the ZestDesk. Two other recommendations would be to get the carrying case they offer and use the most comfortable shoes you can find and/or use a anti-fatigue mat.

Making it Work
