Operate Your Standing Desk From Your Computer with this New Feature!

We at Ergomotion are excited to announce a brand-new feature that is sure to shut down those who complain a sit stand desk is too burdensome to operate!

Desk Control™ is the new software from Linak – whose technology is used across all of our standing desks – designed to make it simpler to naturally incorporate both sitting and standing into your workday.

How does DeskControl™ work?

DeskControl™ is a piece of software that is installed onto your computer. It looks just like the physical panel on your desk, but this one is an interactive one that slips adjustment of your desk into your normal routine.

Linak are at the forefront of continuous innovation, striving to show (and tell) just how easy in can be to integrate non-sedentary behaviour into your day – whether you work from home or in the office.

What are the features?

Linak’s hi-tech software, based on many years of experience, contains the same features as your on-desk panel, including up and down adjustment as well as three memory positions.

DeskControl™ has three views:

The first is the standard view, which shows your current status, today’s goals, your current height, and your memory buttons (your three favourite heights, commonly your sitting height, your standing height, and an alternative height).

The next view is your settings. This is where you can set and adjust data like your table height, your weight (to measure calories burned) and the sessions you aim to achieve during the day (e.g.: your aim is two standing sessions per hour, with both standing sessions lasting 20 minutes each). You can also decide here how you would like to be reminded to switch between sitting and standing, and whether your data is displayed in time (minutes) or how many calories you have burned.

When you are reminded to switch your position, you can choose to honour the switch, or snooze or skip a session. Snoozing postpones the reminder for ten minutes, and skipping a session means you simply skip until you reach the next session (but we discourage this!)

The final view is your history, which provides statistics based on the past day, week, month, or year. You can even export data to excel format to track your efforts!

Why do I need to stand?

I can’t be bothered standing at work” (actually, it can help alleviate that three o’clock slump!)

I don’t have time to mess about with standing and sitting” (Then a height memory feature means an electric sit stand desk is perfect for you.)

I simply don’t need to stand up during the day” (Oh really? How does the risk of weight gain, belly fat, and diabetes sound?)

These are the excuses we used to hear all the time. The reality is that it’s hard to break a behavioural habit that has been completed learned.

Today, though, there is a total shift in perception and understanding.

We are so thrilled to see how everyday workers, like you and I, are learning about the benefits of a standing desk at work, and, additionally, realising the adverse health risks associated with sedentary behaviour.

Can’t I just buy a cheap stand for my desk?

Well, of course you can. You can put your stuff on the stand. You can move your keyboard, monitor, laptop, speakers, and mouse onto this stand. And you can push your office chair away. And you can do the exact opposite in an hour. And then you can repeat it, on the hour, every hour, from 9am to 5pm.

See where we’re going with this? If it’s too complicated to use, you’re simply not going to use it. So what’s the point?

Sedentary behaviour, we must clarify, doesn’t necessary refer to sitting all day (though that’s the example often cited). It is, rather, any behaviour that leaves our body in a sedentary position – with little to no movement – where blood flow, calorie burning rate, and posture are all compromised.

Remember – whether you sit all day or stand all day is detrimental to your health. An electric standing desk, paired with Linak’s DeskControl™ software, really leaves you with no excuse as to why you can’t stand up for your health.

Great service and really quick shipping. It is great to know that you are getting quality parts from a Scandinavian manufacturer with your standing desk purchase rather than the cheap knock off stuff you get from other major brands. Reasonably priced for the quality too!

Guy was very accommodating with meeting him at a time that suited me. He assembled the desk prior to me collecting so I only had to carry it inside with help (it's pretty heavy). The desk is great, the storage racks underneath with the 6 x built in powerpoints was worth the extra money. I have a functioning & tidy workplace.
Guy was brilliant, I highly recommend.

Have now purchased 2 stand up office desks off Guy, benchmark sales service from him, all via email, so easy; from quote to plug in, only matched by the strong quality of these machines, solid and stable. If only everything in life was this easy and reliable.

I purchased an EDesk this month from Ergomotion, and it was a remarkably smooth transaction. Guy was eager to answer all my questions before my purchase. As a first-time buyer of a standing desk, I truly appreciated how he addressed my queries with thorough details and provided options within my budget.

The delivery process was also smooth, despite a slight delay in the ETA. Guy ensured I received all necessary updates from the courier/removalist.

I've been using the desk for a couple of weeks now and I'm satisfied with it. It's sturdy on all height adjustments and the motor works as expected. I also like oak finish because it's clean-looking and suits my room setup.

Overall, I'm happy with my purchase and I'll definitely recommend Ergomotion to someone looking for their desk needs.

I've had an ergomotion desk for 10 years. It's still as good today as it was brand new. Over the years Guy has always responded promptly to any guidance I've needed (mostly help putting the desk back together after removalists take it apart).

Great service from Guy and the team at Ergomotion! Helped with all my queries and was able to source a standing desk part for me when many others weren't able! Highly recommend!

Skip the big name brands and buy from Guy instead, 10/10 linak parts with a very well built tabletop.

I purchased the edesk from Guy at Ergomotion. Guy was a pleasure to deal with and the desk arrived the next day. Guy was highly knowledgeable on the desk and provided very prompt support on the installation. I can highly recommend Ergomotion.
