    adjustable height desk

    Is anyone using an adjustable height desk, or have a recommendation for one that won't take a big bite out of my limited finances?

    Thanks.

    I want to get one like this IKEA Galant adjustable desk: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wwvLscXlGQk

    Unfortunately, I have not been able to find it outside of Europe: http://www.ikea.com/nl/nl/catalog/products/90088946/

      I recently purchased a conset desk. I got the biggest L-shaped workstation they have. It is a European company with bosch lifting motors. Very powerful. The price on the website is quite high but my local dealer got me the unit with shipping, installation and tax (which is involved) for $2,000.

      It is about 6 1/2 feet by about 5 feet. I had a slight modification made locally as pulling into the corner in my power chair was difficult and my armrests were hitting the two sides of the return. If you are interested I can post a picture of my modification.

      My model is the 501-11-85196A with a # 200 RB return piece.

      Highly recommended.

          If you don't need power, then the manual crank models are quite inexpensive. If you want to use the table independently however you will want power. That is unless you are a paraplegic. Most of the high-quality manual crank models using worm gear that requires little effort.

            Thanks for the tip. That really is a reasonably priced desk ($689.00). I like that you can just order the base and put your on top on it too ($549.00). Here is a link to at www.beyondtheofficedoor.com and there are video's there too.

These desk are made of stereotypically high German quality standards, the VertDesk is a strong work surface at all heights and silent when raised or lowered, desk have strong crossbar, a solid, spacious table / desk surface, and a gear & spindle drive respectively. I think varidesk is on you budget.

              That bar between the two uprights could be a problem for some people in wheelchairs, depending on where their knees or shins would hit when sitting at the desk.

                Good point KLD. I think that confirms to me that we should get only the base so we can make sure it works.

                  I use an adjustable height table made for childrens daycare facility--very sturdy with no sharp edges or pinch points and nothing to bang my knees on. I've had it for 3.5 years and am still pleased with it.

                        Remember to check on how to raise and lower a manual table - I use one for a craft class and the crank is located under the table at the back and requires someone to get down and practically under the table to crank it. Other folks use it for other classes, so it has to be adjusted for me by classmate weekly.

                          I do not know if this will help. I have used this company's actuators and found this on their site. You would need to add the table top of your choice, but it seems more cost efficient than most.
