Signature Altwork Station
I love my Altwork Station! It has allowed me to get back to work after a significant spinal fusion and two hip replacements. The quality is fantastic! Love it!
Signature Altwork Station
This review is for my second AltWork station - I bought one for my office last year, and with current C-19 work from home situation, I felt the need to buy one for my home as well. As someone who spends 12-14 hours a day in front of my computer, AltWork allows me to move seamlessly between 4 different working positions (reclining, seated with feet up, seated with feet down and standing), each with my hands, shoulders and head in optimal ergonomic position. While the unit at work has a two monitor setup, Jeff recommended that I consider using a 49 inch double ultra wide monitor (with the heavy duty single monitor arm) and I am delighted to have done that. The Dell 49 inch monitor I bought to go with this station allows me to see three full size screens simultaneously. All in all, I feel grateful and privileged to work this way!

From Start to Finish the purchasing process for my 2 Altwork stations has been seamless! The Altwork representative I dealt with was helpful and accessible and walked me thru the process with ease! He truly felt like a friend during it all. The station came quickly and I was able to set it up with out any problems. It operates as advertised and is extremely comfortable, work wise it has made my day so much more enjoyable and medically it has allowed me to comfortably work for as long as id like now, with out having to take breaks to stretch or elevate my legs! This chair has renewed my ability to work and be a productive team member! that's why we purchased a second one only 2 weeks later!!
Life saver and productivity booster.
Thank you !!!!
I was facing having to go on Long Term Disability as I could no longer sit in a regular office chair. I now can work my 10 hour shifts in comfort. My monitors are always in the right place no matter the position I am in. Everything is aligned perfectly. I truly LOVE my ALTWORK Station !!!
My wife is a schoolteacher, and spends a lot of time in her off hours grading papers and drafting lesson plans. I bought her the Altwork station so that she could elevate her legs and alter her seating support during those evening hours. We programmed the positions she favors, and she has been sitting in it daily ever since! This has included marathon sessions during the day, as the corona virus quarantine closed her school, and she has had to reach her students on-line. The machine admittedly is expensive, even on sale, but the engineering and quality of construction is top notch. The product support is beyond excellent. Consider it an investment in health and well-being, which was the genesis of the design. It will pay dividends.
The system is amazing and Jeff Ward is more amazing! LOL You guys rock!
I have an usual neck injury that was well accommodated. Product exceeded expectations, was able to increase work time 200%.
I found that it was possible to route the monitor and usb cables through the arm, but the cover was not able to be fully installed. The cover could be changed to allow it to be installed with more than just the power cable and desktop control cable installed. I love being able to work in the fully reclined position. I have a bad back and I have much less pain after a day working on the computer. Thanks.
I am happy with the mount for my monitors! They stay securely in place where I need them
I love it! I wish I had waited it out 4 years ago when I had pre-ordered a desk. I actually felt energized at the end of my first ten hour shift in the chair! I have have low back pain often and working long shifts was aggravating my back and shoulder. This is an investment so I can continue my job for many more years. Great engineering! The chair has a wide variety of easy and fast adjustments to achieve comfort and maintain productivity all day! The chair is so well-made and looks great too! Thank you for creating this!!
I have a painful medical issue that means I need to spend a lot of time lying down, especially after meals. The Altwork workstation has made a huge difference in my life by allowing me to work during times that would otherwise be unproductive.
I originally was looking for a work station, that would allow me to work with my legs elevated, as I suffer from circulation issues in my legs. The Altwork station fulfilled my needs and even if I didn't have this issue, I highly recommend this work station, for a comfortable work environment.
I am so happy for my new workstation. It's the best thing I've done in a long time. It took me around 30 ish´ days to turn my body around to use it. To begin with I got "sore" in all sorts of muscles and didn't sit very well. So I really doubted at first whether I should deliver it back. BUT now, I will never live without this workstation again. I love it!
It is also very important to tell what a great service I received from Jeff (Altwork) throughout the process. I would definitely recommend Altwork and Jeff to everyone else. (I live in Denmark)
All the best
After a couple of decades of computer work my neck and shoulders gives me trouble. This desk did wonders for me by allowing the elbows to rest on the seat back while reclined offloading the muscles.
I'm a radiologist who works an overnight shift 10 hours per day for 7 days straight. My back and neck were really starting to ache despite having a sit/stand desk. This chair and the reclining function were instrumental in reducing the pressure off my back and neck. A noticeable difference right off the bat. I feel refreshed and ready even after a work week of 70 hours glued to looking at radiology studies. We did have to think carefully about the weight restrictions on the monitor. My primary monitor needs to be FDA approved and weights 30 lbs for medical imaging. Jeff at Altworks was helpful in verifying my system would work. The equipment itself is heavy and requires two people to assemble. Be prepared to ask for help and dedicating some time to unboxing, assembly, and cabling layout unique to your system. Definitely worth the effort (and price) as I believe this will help minimize long term consequences of a sedentary job. This chair has changed my outlook on my profession and coupled with an active lifestyle, mindset, eating the right foods, etc, I'm confident this chair has greatly extended my career and health.
This chair is a lifesaver for me, I work 12 hrs a day in front on my computer screens, as I am on the software industry. Having knee and tendon surgeries, countless hours of chiropractor, I know what it is seating on a regular chair and fighting to stay on a ergonomic posture at all times. Altwork gave me the means to do just that, my legs stays up improving blood flow and circulation, my back stay straight, me eyes at equal distance to the monitors, helping reduce eye strain as well. It is funny that all our business is going to the cloud nowadays, and I feel I work laying in the clouds, enhancing my productivity and my well being. If you work long hours in front a computer, this is a god sent solution, and a conversation starter on any meeting, as I use live cameras and people always ask about it, with how cool it looks and how comfortable I look online. Thank you Altwork for this amazing engineering and innovation.
Everyone that I worked with, from the Corporation to the installers, were extremely attentive to my particular needs, professional, and efficient.
The work station itself has made all the difference in making my work day less painful. I would highly recommend it for anyone who suffers from any type of paralysis or muscular/skeletal issues.
I have had my Altwork Station for about six months now. It has functioned flawlessly, and I have been able to be very productive with my work. The back, hip, and sciatica pain I was experiencing working in a seated position have almost entirely resolved. Thank you, Altwork!
I can say that the Altwork solution has been a complete game changer for me. I can tell a massive difference when I'm working in my Altwork Station in my office vs working in other environments.
