Oristand Foldable Standing Desk

By now you’ve probably heard a lot about the dangers of sitting all day — obesity, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancer, and an early death, to name a few. Standing desks are a good way to do something about it, but they can get pretty pricey, typically ranging in the hundreds of dollars.

Oristand can withstand average weights of around 60 lbs (27 kgs), and while this is more than enough to support a Retina 5K iMac (21 lb/9.54 kg), the company recommends sticking to laptop usage until they develop an even tougher product down the line.

Get a single Oristand for $25, or a 5-pack for $100.
