Back view of a woman standing at an iMovR Lander desk with built-in SteadyType keyboard trayIn this iMovR standing desk review, we’ll be looking at what you can expect as standard from iMovR desks, as well as giving you an overview of the different ranges available, plus the individual models within each range.

There’s a lot of information to take in and our aim is to make the process a whole lot easier for you by doing the research on your behalf and providing you with honest, unbiased and relevant information in the simplest form possible.

With the active office furniture market expanding, there’s a heck of a lot more choice out there, which on the one hand is great news for the consumer. But on the other hand, sorting through that information to find what you’re looking for can be a major headache.

So, with that in mind, once you’ve had a read through this article and have an idea of which range might suit your needs, we’ll give you a link to our full review for those desks. Here, you’ll find more in-depth product information to help you make the best decision for you.

Before we go any further, let’s take a look at the manufacturer…

About iMovR

iMovR was founded in 2014 and is part of the Thermogenesis Group. Other subsidiaries include SitLess, an online retailer of office fitness products by iMovR and other well-known companies. (SitLess also has a demonstration showroom for customers to try before they buy, which was the very first of its kind. It’s based in Bellevue, Washington)

Office Fitness Media is another subdivision and this company encompasses the website – an office fitness review site featuring iMovR along with a number of other manufacturers and products.

iMovR offers one of the widest choices of office fitness products in the industry including standing desks, desk converters, conference tables and treadmill desks. Their portfolio also includes all manner of accessories such as anti-fatigue mats, monitor arms, power and cable management systems and storage solutions.

As an organization, iMovR continues to go from strength to strength. This is partly due to their customer focus and unmatched ability to offer “the most customizable desks in the world.” Their innovative approach to production and design is way up there too.

Woman working on tilting keyboard tray with smartphone to the rightThey bought us the “SteadyType” after 2 years of research to offer the most advanced ergonomic keyboard tray on the market today. They use robotic precision manufacturing so their desks not only work smoothly and quietly, but they also look good. The worktops are finished to exact standards ensuring top quality and durability. iMovR also bought us the very first 98% pre-assembled standing desk.

It’s fair to say that iMovR are ahead of the game in many ways. Let’s take a closer look at what else you can expect.

The iMovR Standing Desk Range

What Comes As Standard

Proudly Made In The USA

Each desk is made in America, so you’re assured of top quality products and materials. In addition, most desks are made on demand in Michigan, which plays a key factor in keeping costs and pricing low. It also allows iMovR to offer so many choices for customization.

With the Lander and Freedom series there are literally thousands of combinations to choose from. Simply order your desk, it will be made to your specifications and shipped out within the week. (As well as size, shape and upgrade options, there are 22 laminate colors and 36 solid wood finishes to choose from.)

However, if you’re in need of a quicker turnaround, the ZipDesk has fewer options but can be produced to much tighter timescales and literally shipped out within 24 hours. (Due to recent circumstances and increased demand, iMovR have taken to manufacturing a number of their most popular product lines in advance in order to fulfil their new “quick ship” service.)

Certification, Quality and Satisfaction Guaranteed

All iMovR desks are NEAT certified by the Mayo Clinic. This means their use is recognized as contributing to a healthier workforce by reducing the health risks associated with sitting disease.

Most iMovR desks are certified by ANSI / BIFMA for safety, durability and performance. Others meet the standards but are awaiting independent testing.

To demonstrate their faith in their products, iMovR have covered each and every one of their desks with an unbeatable warranty – lifetime cover for the frame, 10 years for the base and 5 years for the desktop. If that wasn’t enough, they also offer a 100-day satisfaction guarantee.


Silver encased stopwatch with white face and black numberingAssembly time for iMovR desks ranges from 3 minutes to 20 minutes, depending on the model – yes, you read that right! Another element of thoughtful design, most of the work is done for you. Simply snap the legs in place and attach the power cord. For some models there’s a little more work – such as attaching the feet or joining a side table, but even so, these desks go together quicker than most.

…not forgetting

All desks feature acceleration damping and anti-collision technology.

The height range is very good, as is the maximum weight capacity. (See individual reviews for full details.) In addition to the height ranges detailed below, all models apart from the ZipDesk offer an additional 6 inches when paired with the optional leg extenders.

The control panel is easy to use and you can pre-set 2, 3 or 4 height settings, depending on the model. Lander desks are also Bluetooth enabled.

The lower 48 states qualify for free delivery. International shipping is available for orders over $100.

Now we’ll take a look at the different desk series.

About The iMovR ZipDesk

Side angle of the ZipDesk with black worktop and frame supporting dual monitors and laptopTo re-cap, the ZipDesk is light on options but fast on delivery. It’s the only ZipDesk and isn’t part of a series. (Not to be confused with the iMovR ZipLift desk converter range.)

These are the specs :

  • Choice of depths : 23.5″ / 30″
  • Choice of widths : 47″ / 53″
  • Maximum weight capacity : 265 lbs
  • Height range : 22.6″ – 48.7″
  • Starting price : $679

There are no corner desks or L-shaped ZipDesk designs – just the good old rectangle. The SteadyType keyboard tray doesn’t feature as an upgrade and the 3D laminate and solid wood worktops are not an option. (This desk comes in powder-coat finish only.) But if you need a good quality desk quickly, you can’t go wrong with this “desk-in-a-box.”
