Improves posture and prevents tension.
When your laptop, books and texts are lying flat on the table, the eyes are unpleasantly directed downwards and the neck muscles may become tense. Not so with Desk-up: It’s height adjustable in two positions which helps to keep the head and body posture straight, preventing unpleasant discomfort. Leading experts confirm this. Desk-up offers you a maximum of comfort and makes a valuable contribution to your health and well-being.
When you are not using your Desk-up it folds totally flat and won't take any space at all..

Position 2 | Angle 30°
Depending on the angle of light incidence and your sitting position, Position 2 ensures the required and ergonomically correct inclination. Additionally Desk-up serves as a document holder (single sheets, books, files, albums,...). Discover the possibilities.
Since hundreds of years people who were reading and writing a lot have prefered a comfortable position.
Inspired by the experience of generations as well as by the fact that even today, we instinctively hold our reading matter at a certain angle in order to be able to enjoy it in relaxed comfort, the idea for Desk-up was born. Simple, practical, flexible, mobile, elegant and durable – these were the challenges we had to meet when designing this product. Give this result of intensive development and testing a try. And discover the wonderful angles the future holds for you.

Thanks to the upright posture forced by Desk-up the cervical spine and the shoulder-neck-area are relaxed.
I was given the opportunity, to test Desk-up in my medical practice and at home with family for some months. In doing so I realized that the mobile and lightly slanting desktop implicates some key advantages.
Usual horizontal working- or reading-spaces in school as well as in the office urge people to adopt an attitude which is unnaturally incriminating for the cervical spine, for example while reading, writing or drawing. Thanks to the upright posture forced by Desk-up the cervical spine and the shoulder-neck-area are relaxed. The thoracic spine is straightened up and the position of the pelvis is ergonomically better.
Due to the handy size of Desk-up, which is easily adjustable, the static position is corrected to a dynamic stress of the spine. This dynamic sitting leads to a constant relief of the spine. It is no coincidence we all prefer reading books and papers in a slanted way compared to the horizontal position. Instinctively we act right and so relief the musculoskeletal system.
It was nice to watch how children naturally and enthusiastically acted with Desk-up leading to an instinctive improvement of their position while reading or writing. For me the idea of Desk-up not only brings advantages for children but also for the back muscles and intervertebral discs of grown-ups. It is therefore easily possible to support and beneficially affect our health and well-being.
