Humanscale Introduces Rise: The Sit/Stand Solution for Every Desk

Sleek, High Performance Design and Ease of Use Deliver a Healthier Workstation

NEW YORK, April 8 — As research continues to emerge about the effects of inactivity, Humanscale, the pioneer in ergonomics and workplace design, continues to create new ways to make workspaces more active, comfortable and healthy by creating intuitive products that adjust to the user. Offering complete ease of use, Rise is a sit/stand solution that retrofits existing desks to allow the user to transition between sitting and standing positions instantly and elegantly. Rise, available in North America starting in late June, is the newest addition to Humanscale's suite of products that include the company's award-winning task chairs, sit/stand desks and task lighting.

“Rise is an extremely exciting product that continues Humanscale’s drive to offer revolutionary sit/stand solutions,” said John Brooks, product manager. “Rise will also employ constant-force technology, the same technology in Float, our sit/stand table, which allows users to alternate postures with ease. With Rise, companies can incorporate sit/stand into their working environments without having to invest in new workstations, or utilize it as the perfect complement to any new build out.”

Rise was designed as a sit/stand solution that can be clamped like a monitor arm to any fixed-height work surface, allowing the user to move effortlessly between seated and standing postures throughout the day. Its central column holds a monitor and a platform for a keyboard, and can be adjusted to the desired height of the vast majority of users by simply raising the platform.

An extremely stable product, Rise features an aesthetic that can be readily incorporated into any environment. It is equipped with an integrated cable harness to allow users to plug in and go immediately for easy access to technology. Available in a number of configurations, including those with dual monitor requirements, Rise can accommodate nearly any application or specification.

Rise continues Humanscale’s legacy of intuitive ergonomic solutions. From Freedom to Element Disc to Float, Humanscale creates products that offer effortless and superior functionality. When Humanscale products are used together in a complete ergonomic workstation, they encourage comfort, health and productivity.
