Altwork Workstation

Altwork’s objective is to redefine how your computer and workstation work with you, to support you in being more productive, comfortable, and healthy.  Sit, stand, collaborate, and focus for the ultimate in productivity and ergonomics.

Altwork Station: Kinematics + Biomechanics = The most advanced and effective workstation on the market today.

Altwork Station Features

Integrated monitor, desk, and chair that moves with your body to create an amazingly comfortable and productive workstation
Four productivity positions—sit, stand, collaborate, and focus (reclining where your computer moves with you)
Requires just 18 square feet, much less than a desk and chair in a traditional office
The monitor maintains a consistent distance from your eyes and the desk maintains a consistent distance from your hands
Rotate your screen to share with colleagues or friends next to you, even from your preferred focus position
4 seated or focus and 1 standing desk memory positions, totally customizable—change at the push of a button
In the standing collaboration mode you can hold meetings on the fly without the hassle of finding a conference room
The workstation is on casters so it’s easy to move and take advantage of open office environments. Just unlock the casters, unplug a single power cable, and move
An electronics tray allows you to power all your peripherals without the mess of cables all over the place–this way your Altwork Station is always aesthetically clean, elegant, and movable

Who does it fit?

The Altwork Station works for the vast majority of people. 
HEIGHT: Our recommended minimum and maximum height range is 5’1″ to 6’4″. 
WEIGHT: The Altwork Station is rated for a 250 pound user (We’re working on moving this number higher). 

If you fall outside of these height or weight ranges, it would be best to contact us at 877-724-4922. 
The human body has so many variables, for example one 6’4″ person may have a longer torso or longer legs than another 6’4″ person, so the adjustments would be different.
The Altwork Station is very flexible and almost everyone has enjoyed working in it.

Redefining how we relate to our computers through furniture is very complicated. We have tested and tried to take into account the wide ranging physical differences between people and how they want to interact with their computer. So things like height, weight, portability, etc. are important for you to know and consider. Here are technical specifications of the Altwork Station. Let us know if you have questions - call 1-877-724-4922 or email.

FAQ

Q: WHAT DOES THE ALTWORK STATION DO?

A: The Altwork Station redefines how people interact with their computers by allowing the computer screen and keyboard to physically conform to support the user’s body while working long hours on a computer. Unlike standard desk and chair workstations, high-intensity computer users can use the Altwork Station to sit, stand, focus (recline), and collaborate. In simplest terms, it allows you to work any way you want as the computer seamlessly moves with you, instead of forcing you to conform to it.

Q: WHO IS THE ALTWORK STATION DESIGNED FOR?

A: The Altwork Station is designed for high-intensity computer users, which we define as people who spend at least four hours a day working with their personal computer, focusing on complex tasks for extended periods of time—such as developing software and producing computer automated design work.

Q: HOW ERGONOMIC IS IT? HOW DOES IT IMPACT TOO MUCH SITTING AND STANDING?

A: Most ergonomic experts agree sitting for extended periods is not healthy. Standing desks have mixed data regarding health benefits/liabilities. Most of the studies that have been done are correlative rather than causal so it is hard to derive definitive prescriptions from them. However, most experts agree that people should change positions and move throughout the day. We believe movement throughout the day is important. While there is no formal ergonomic data we know of regarding the Focus (reclined) position our Altwork patented technology provides, many experts believe a large part of the health benefits from standing come from keeping the torso and legs at greater than 135 degrees apart to allow blood flow vs. the 90 degrees that a traditional chairs require. 

Q: CAN IT HOLD MULTIPLE SCREENS?

A: We designed it to be more about weight than number of screens. We specify 40 lbs. maximum for standard long-term operation. Two monitors are permissible, depending on their weight. We also offer an Upper Laptop Mount if you want to use your laptop screen as one monitor plus a larger monitor that stays connected to the workstation.

Q: WHAT IS THE WARRANTY?

A: Five years. The workstation is designed and tested to at least 10 normal working years.

Q: WHAT ARE THE COLOR OPTIONS?

A: Choose from 2 color options; Nightsky (Black) and Moonlight (Silver). Your color choice will be confirmed with each order prior to shipping date. We do have a custom color palette. Contact us directly at 877-724-4922 if you’re considering a custom color station. Note that each computer monitor may represent colors differently.

Q: HOW HEAVY IS IT AND WHAT ARE THE DIMENSIONS?

A: It is 34 inches wide, and can be easily moved through most doors. It is five (5) feet long, about the same length as a medium-sized desk. It weighs 210 lbs., about 20 lbs. more than vintage tanker desks.

Q: DOES IT FIT ALL BODY TYPES?

A: The Altwork Station works for the vast majority of people.
HEIGHT: Our recommended minimum and maximum height range is 5’1″ to 6’4″.
WEIGHT: The Altwork Station is rated for a 250-pound user. We are working on moving this number higher.

If you fall outside of these height or weight ranges, it would be best to give us a call at (707) 247-8942. The human body has so many variables. For example, one 6’4″ person may have a longer torso or longer legs than another 6’4″ person, so the adjustments would be different. The Altwork Station is very flexible and almost everyone has enjoyed working in it.

Q: WHERE DOES MY COFFEE GO?

A: Altwork Station works best with a side table for coffee, laptops, desktops, papers, books, and sometimes lunch. The Altwork custom side table is designed to match the Station style.

Q: DOES IT COME WITH A SCREEN?

A: No. A standard VESA (100×100) mount on the back accommodates various screens. A multiple screen mount can hold up to four monitors depending on the weight of the monitors.

Q: HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN WORKING ON THIS?

A: Since 2010.

Q: DO YOU HAVE PATENTS?

A: Multiple patents granted and more pending.

Q: WHAT KEEPS THE KEYBOARD AND MOUSE FROM FALLING WHEN YOU LEAN BACK?

A: The desk has a layer of steel under its surface. Magnets on the keyboard and keypad hold them in position on the desk. We provide specialized magnet kits for standard Apple products and a general-purpose kit to accommodate other products. The mouse pad has a ring of steel on its outer edge but no steel in the center. This allows the user to slide the mouse easily when mousing and store the mouse anywhere on the edge of the pad when not in use.

Q: WHAT EXPERIENCE DO THE FOUNDERS HAVE?

A: The founding team has been working together for over three (3) decades. Their collaboration has resulted in the sale of three aerospace hardware companies. All of those companies were based in Sonoma County and all of them are still in operation, employing hundreds of people in high-tech manufacturing. The team has a history of success designing, building, shipping, and supporting mechanical products. In addition, Che Voigt (CEO of Altwork) is an active angel investor and is currently head of the North Bay Angel investing group and is involved in multiple business organizations including the Sonoma County BEST, a public-private partnership for economic development.

Q: WHAT ARE THE SHIPPING DIMENSIONS?

A: The workstation ships in a 3’x4’x5′ crate weighing 330 lbs. total. If a Side Table is ordered, it will fit in the crate and add about 40 lbs. 

Q: DO YOU HAVE A SHEET SHOWING ADJUSTMENT DETAILS?

A: Yes we do.
