Fellowes Canada has launched a line of sit/stand products. Swapping standing for sitting for just a few hours each day burns more calories, reduce aches and pains and can improve overall health, the company says. The Fellowes Extend Sit Stand (pictured) aims to transform any desk into an active one. Featuring Humanscale Technology, convenient cord management to keep the keyboard, mouse and monitor wires all hidden from view, as well as a premium tier articulating arm that is easy to adjust, reaches up to 40 inches and swivels 180 degrees. The single clamp design allows it to be mounted to the back edge of any work surface. The company has also launched the Lotus Sit Stand Workstation. Designed to create a truly integrated and seamless work space that allows mobility, the Lotus Sit Stand keeps the work station stable and makes changing positions effortless with smooth lift technology. Features 22 different height settings (perfect for shared work spaces), the unit comes fully assembled.
