With my back condition, I have no options for surgery, but after I got my Altwork Station, I discovered that I could position the chair to decompress my lower back. Now working eight hours at my computer, I get refreshed, as though I had a message on my lower back! My friend just had a $30k back surgery; I’ll take my Altwork Station over that any day. Thank you Altwork!
I love my workstation. I highly recommend getting a wide screen curved monitor to go with it. But the work experience is great. I move around multiple times a day from siting to reclining to standing. Plus the overall station takes up less room in my office then my old desk did. I looked at a lot of competitive products. I believe that Altwork has two big benefits over them. It is very solidly made but still a much better price point then the other solid stations. It also is much easier to move if necessary than the other solid stations, many of which take multiple people to move. Anything that is a lower price point is not nearly the same quality as Altwork. So I would obvioulsy highly recommend this product. I would also say the Signature station is definitely worth the extra money.
This setup is perfect for me. I needed the ability to change how I sit/recline by very small increments - not just choose from 4 pre-set positions. When I told my (only, part time) assistant how much I was spending, he flipped out and started showing me a bunch of other setups. I explained that an inch in the wrong direction can make a huge difference in whether I can walk well the next day.
Honestly, it was way out of my budget, but I'm self employed and can't afford NOT to work. If I turn down work, my clients will go elsewhere, and I'll lose a lot more than the cost of the chair!
The quality of the signature station, even at this price point, is honestly even better than I expected. The details they thought of, from the cable covers, to the trim and hardware is really incredible. Even the tools they send with it to put it together are actual quality tools, not just the junk you usually get with build-it yourself furniture.
My only tiny complaint is that I wish the headrest had just a little more range of motion. It's still way more than any other chair but in certain positions I could use it to lock about an inch further forward.
I have suffered from chronic pain since- as long as I can remember. I've tried working from a recliner or even bed. But nothing helped. That is, until I found Altwork. Now I can finish my workday pain-free. Thank you Altwork!
