I am very happy with my new Altwork station. My productivity has increased and my body feels fine. It really feels like quality and the support is good.
It takes some time to find out how to use it and find the best positions. It didn’t work with Apples mouse, it was to heavy and fell off even with the dedicated magnetic thing. Now I use Apples trackpad instead, works fine. I would prefer if the sockets were local, now a lot of adapters must be used (in Sweden) with makes it look something like a birds nest, but it’s not a big problem.
The one problem I have is to reach the Macbook to use the fingerprint reader in the bar on top of the keyboard. It’s about 20 cm too far away in reclined positions.
It would be nice if the artwork could do multiple movements simultaneously, it takes a bit to long to go from fully reclined to home.
I have had my Signature Altwork station now for almost a month and I absolutely love it! I had been looking at it for many years, but always hesitated because of the price. After having another knee surgery and recent back issues, I decided to go ahead and reach out. Jeff was incredibly helpful with all my questions before I purchased, and after it arrived. I can’t believe I waited so long! I can adjust it a lot or just a little when I am working if I start to get uncomfortable being in a static position. I no longer have to get up and walk around every 30 minutes or so. I do, however, wish the table was larger because I use a full wireless keyboard, along with a Wacom tablet, and I had to get a smaller tablet to fit on the table. Other than that, I would not change a thing! It is very well made and looks beautiful in my home office. The dogs love it because now they can get up on my lap while I am working. I highly recommend this product, along with the support from the team at Altwork.
I have had five back surgeries and could not work without the Altwork station. I looked at several other products prior to purchasing, but nothing matched the sophistication, ergonomics, and economy of the Altwork.
Reclining to work has been a huge help with my chronic back pain. I can now focus much better without the constant distraction of pain from sitting or standing. Plus, greatly reducing my daily pain level has been amazing!
For almost a decade, I was haunted by the constant neck and upper body pain. Work was distracted by the pain. Video gaming wasn't fun anymore. Honestly, a big part of my life was gone because of the pain. Well, I'm glad the pandemic finally pushed me to find a solution. More importantly, there is actually a solution out there. The existence of Altwork itself makes the world a better place. The workstation itself is just such a solid piece of engineering marvel. Everything is high quality, one thing I think it can improve is the material or design of the back rest. Sometime it will get a bit warn if you lay down for too long. One regret I have is not getting the Signature series. If your budget allows it, just go get the signature series.
