Four Key Positions
Imagine your dream workspace.
You would want to sit, stand, recline into a focus position for tackling your toughest work challenges, or even work in a zero gravity position—all while maintaining ergonomic integrity and being comfortable so you can be more productive.
As engineers, designers, and technologists we believe your work can flow more freely when your computer moves with you throughout your work day.
Get in and get it done.
Traditional desks and chairs treat you like an old typewriter. Everything in the modern workspace has evolved except for how you interface with your computer. Desks and chairs are essentially what they’ve always been, you conform to them, instead of them working with you.
We’ve designed a better way.
Sit down or stand up.
The Altwork Station features integrated pushbutton controls that deliver seamless, smooth interaction between your body and your computer. Studies show that changing positions throughout the day is better for us.
Sit, stand, collaborate, or focus/recline—your choice.
Call a meeting at your Station.
Whether sitting, standing, or collaborating with your team by swinging the screen so everyone can see, presentations are a breeze. It’s more than a desk, a chair, or a cubicle. It’s unlike any other workstation.
Flexible. Mobile. Cool.
Glide in to reclined focus.
The Altwork Station supports your body and your work by seamlessly conforming your keyboard, desk, mouse, and monitor to your body. This allows you to create a massive selection of working positions with your computer so you can work the right way for the right task. Our unique focus position allows high intensity computer users to eliminate the discomfort of standard tables and chairs so they can focus longer on complex tasks. It’s time to move beyond outmoded furniture and create a new way to work for digital professionals.
From gentle recline to zero gravity.
Welcome to the new way to work.
Since our launch in October 2015, Altwork continues to redefine how your computer and workstation work with you, to support you in being more productive, comfortable, and healthy.
Our launch and Pre-Order Campaign have been extraordinary—in both early adopter orders placed and major international press coverage. Now, after more than five years of engineering and over $3M of founder and angel investment, we invite you to experience—the world’s first workstation designed for high-intensity computer users.
Time to create, grow, inspire, and contribute.

Mixing it up at work is better than only sitting, or only standing, for the whole day. Or, if you want to get specific, Cornell University experts advise that after sitting for 20-30 minutes, stand up for a bit and move around.
Many sources are recommending a reclined sitting position as just one part of an overall health strategy.
Sitting down, which most of us do for at least eight hours each day, might be the worst thing we do for our health all day. We’ve been preaching the benefits of stand-up desks for a while around here — and no one needs this good news more than...

It’s fair to say I like to work, I have many interests and many companies and patents to my credit.
I started working in my father’s factory when I was 12. My first business started at 13, rewinding slot car motors for racers at the local slot car track. By high school I was a proficient machinist, welder, and general metal fabricator. At 19 I completed a 2700 lb sports car using a purchased fiberglass Ford GT-40 replica body and 427 Chevy engine. I designed and built the frame, power train (4 speed, engine mounted sideways) and suspension systems. The car was reliable, only leaving me stopped on the side of the road once in 20 years of driving, the result of a little too much hard gear shifting.
Yes!!! I love my Altwork station. It has prevented many headaches, backaches, and I find it works well to minimize distractibility. It is my work vehicle.
I’m enjoying my Altwork Station. They exceeded my expectations and I’m more comfortable doing my work now.

We work at tables and sit on chairs just as we have for hundreds of years. Shapes have changed; not much else has. In our new digital world, sitting, standing, working and the relationship to our computers and the innovative process needs reimagining. Our bodies and minds need a new connection that allows us to work the long hours it takes to create the future. Working differently will allow us to think differently. Altwork is taking us there.
After trying out the $5,900 Altwork Station, one thought immediately comes to mind: boycott work until you're issued one of these babies.
I have never seen anything like this except when I was 7 and watching StarTrek. This is really cool.
