A standing desk is a bit of a commitment, and purchasing one of course requires you jettison your existing desk. But a company called Innovative Office Products is betting on the existence of a customer base that likes their current desk just fine, yet would still like the ergonomic benefits of being able to go up and down as needed.
This past Monday, they released a video of their new Winston Sit/Stand Workstation, a freestanding approach that can be plunked onto your legacy desk and confer 17 inches of adjustable travel height:
I was amazed that the thing does not require bolting to the table surface, at least in the set-up demonstrated; I imagine the not-shown triple monitor set-up must require the clamping option they discuss. And the design approach of only needing to raise the monitor(s) and keyboard tray does seem an intelligent one, as not needing to haul the entire desk surface upwards means the motor can be done away with.
Likely to turn consumers off, however, is the fact that prices aren't listed on the website, but require contacting the company. You reckon they can beat IKEA's $489 Bekant?

Ergo also allows shelves for non-vesa monitors and it includes a steel support placed between the steel plate and the desktop when extended for strength. I personally own this product and can vouch for it's quality. Even more I can vouch of their great customer service.
In short, why reinvent the wheel? This is a lesson that anyone that has taken chemistry has already learned- if you want a standing desk, get a tall desk. If you want to sit at that desk get a stool. Want a fancy upgrade? Get a height adjustable chair for a standing desk and spend you budget finances on more sensible products. Like Post-its.
