altwork’s objective is to redefine how the computer workstation coincide with the user, to support them in being more productive, comfortable and healthy. a team of designers, engineers and creatives have developed a dynamic workstation that caters to a growing number of high-intensity computer users and after much trial and error, progressive prototypes altwork is excited to share it. it allows users to work in 40 productivity positions, whether the worker wants to sit, stand, collaborate, or focus.

their patented technology provides continuous comfort while the computer seamlessly moves with the chair, all with the simple push of a button. after five years of engineering and over one million dollars of founder and angel investment, altwork is launching a pre-order campaign to finance the additional tooling and development they need to scale production of the world’s first workstation designed for computer users.

  • I have been working at a custom made chair like this made in Grand Rapids for about 6 years. I have pain both sitting and standing. My chair (which I am in now) can lie down and take all the weight off where it hurts. It is a marvel. Congratulations on this chair. It is a beauty and will solve a lot of problems for people with special needs. Gary

  • and instead of visiting your dentist, he can come to you for that root canal you need

  • Greetings! Your invention is revolutionary, it will allow some of us (with chronic back problems, removed from working conventionally) to return to the workforce.
    Workers in some instances are already allowed to work remotely from home. This device increases the company’s talent pool while affording the user a sense of purpose they’ve lost.
    On a fixed Income, it would not be easy to purchase of one these devices but the smart companies know it’s an investment.
    Good luck in all your future endeavors!

  • I guess you could add a large lamp for do-it-yourself dentistry.


  • Plus, you can get your teeth cleaned while you work.
