About this project

Your Fully Adjustable, Smart Desk

Easily transform your ordinary desk or table into a fully adjustable, standing to sitting smart desk. Stand for most the day, and when it's time to rest - simply adjust your LIFT for sitting. Medical professionals say that standing for a few hours a day is equivalent to running 10 marathons a year.

                     
                     

The Story

Like most the world, I spend the majority of my day sitting. From work, to lunch, to my daily commute - I'm constantly sitting. By the time I arrive home from work, I’m mentally and physically drained, my head aches, my back is killing me, and I’m in no mood to visit the gym. 

All this sitting in my life made me think. I started wondering if the claims were true…? How does sitting all day affect my health? Well, I did some research and what I discovered was quite shocking.

I was immediately frightened. Moreso, I was ready to put a stop to my bad back, head stress, and just - being tired all the time. In response, I spent the next several months creating, what I believe - is the best and most affordable product on the market to cure sitting disease. 

Now introducing LIFT, by iSkelter - designed to improve your posture, mind, productivity, and health.

The LIFT is completely customizable with built-in out of the box features. Whether you want a flat surface or a fully loaded one, personalize your LIFT to fit you. 

Select from display docks for your phone and tablet, a dry erase board great for note taking, a recessed cup holder to protect all of your devices, and a super thick mousepad that sits flush for comfort. 

Phone/Tablet Display Docks

This smart feature displays your phone and tablet for clear viewing. Plus, charge your devices without any visible cables. *Optional LIFT feature you may add to your surface.

Dry Erase Board

Add this feature to your surface. It's the most efficient way to write down notes without wasting any paper. When needed, simply lift the dry erase board off the surface for deep cleaning. *Optional LIFT feature you may add to your surface.

Drink Holder

Protect your laptop and other devices from surface spills with a stainless steel, recessed drink holder. *Optional LIFT feature you may add to your surface.

MousePad

Install a super thick and heavy duty mousepad that sits flush against the surface of your LIFT. *Optional LIFT feature you may add to your surface.

Storage Trays

Two large felt storage trays come standard with every LIFT. Use this area to safely store your keys, pens, coins and other small items.

Cable Management

Included with every LIFT is a set of 3 cable management clips to keep your phone and tablet cords organized beneath the surface. 

Premium Material

The LIFT is built from pure, premium bamboo because of its extreme durability, incredible beauty, and powerful strength. Plus, it's an earth friendly, renewable resource.

Why We Need Your Help

It's time to make LIFT a retail product for everyone to enjoy. With your help, we will be able to purchase the materials and implement a streamlined production method. The entire production process will be completed in the USA at the iSkelter factory in Phoenix, Arizona. 

Shipping and Delivery Time: Your LIFT will be shipped using UPS Ground for free within the Domestic USA and World-Wide for an additional fee of $120 USD. To ensure correct delivery times - once our goal has been met, we will begin ordering material and start the initial production run. iSkelter's shipping fulfillment center uses 2 to 4 day shipping for both domestic USA and international shipments.

Risks and challenges

At this point, we've overcome many challenges to create the LIFT. With great pleasure, we can now confidently offer the finished and polished product to you on Kickstarter.

Kickstarter pledges will be fulfilled in the order they were placed so depending on the success of LIFT, time will be our biggest challenge. Understanding this, we’ve allocated extra time in our daily factory schedule to ensure that we can ship your LIFT in the time promised to all Kickstarter backers.

We know it’s possible that we’ll encounter other challenges but we’re fully committed to the LIFT and we truly appreciate each backer making this retail product available for everyone to enjoy.
