Let’s face it: gaming all day in a couch can really affect your posture and health. Using standing desks for a few hours per day can help you burn calories (surprisingly!) and decrease the chances of developing back problems.
What’s the difference between someone working for long periods of time and a gamer? None, actually. They’re both in a prolonged position for long stretches of time. So if you want to fix your aching back or sore wrists, take a look at our roundup of the best standing desks for gaming.

This table adjusts easily to the height that matches your height, and it’s a versatile companion when you really want to break free from being stuck in a chair or couch for hours at a time.
The work surface of this table has been made extra wide and spacious, so you can comfortably play with a dual monitor setup or if you must, you can also add additional items on the surface without having to nudge your displays an inch. They keyboard tray underneath has a special wide U design that can house all your peripherals and additional accessories with ease.
Should you want to expand the setup with another laptop or additional accessories, then you can use the keyboard space easily for additional storage. The keyboard tray is also quick-release, and in one movement it can be removed if you want to use the main table as the surface for your keyboard and mouse.
The gas spring hovering system and the “X” structure of the table ensures the smoothest transitions when changing the height of the desk, and it also protects the display from wobbling and shifting during adjustments. And best of all, the desk is designed to go straight up and straight down without missing a beat and its legs do not shift an inch during adjustments.
