Since I’ve had a smartwatch on my wrist every day, my time at the desk has become more apparent to me: the standing hours are increasing often not particularly lush for me on a normal working day. This is likely to be the case for many people who have worked from home in recent years. Like other team members, I wanted to bring a certain variety to the workplace with a standing desk. I was allowed to try my first “stand attempts” with the Flexispot ED5. In my case it was the white frame with the bamboo top (160 x 62cm).
The ED5 is not the flagship from Flexispot. Flexispot therefore gives a minimum height of 50 centimeters. If you need something lower, you have to use a different model. For me, what is offered is sufficient, since I prefer to sit in the area of 70 Centimeters present – more on that later. Maximum is 100 centimeters possible, that should also be sufficient for most people.
According to the data sheet, compromises will also be made with the motor. Flexispot gives 70 Kilograms still offer a generous, but comparatively lower load capacity and lower lifting speed for the ED5. There are two motors, one per base. The anti-collision system, which Caschy explained in detail in his report on the E7, is also part of the game. A look at the data sheet:
