The CrossOver power-adjustable desk from Xdesk (formerly NextDesk) offers users the option of a standing or sitting desk and is designed to work with existing desk and cubicle setups that can’t be easily adjusted. A 24-volt motor lifts the workspace up to 21 inches above the existing table height with a smooth, quiet start/stop. (Height ranges from 0.5 inches to 20.75 inches.) The CrossOver features a lifting capacity of up to 100 pounds. Users can choose between natural bamboo or rubberwood surfaces, and an optional digital LED display. The frame is designed of aluminum with a powder coat finish available in three colors. www.Xdesk.com/crossover
