For the smart shopper who looks hard at a purchase before committing, we have complied comparison reviews of the MojoDesk electric sit-to-stand desk and other available options. Below are links for full reviews as well as an updated 2020 comparison chart at the end of the article that lines up specifications, price, and features of other brands side-by-side.
Both MojoDesk and Varidesk offer a full sit-to-stand desk that meets BIFMA stability requirements, comes with a 5-year warranty, and offers free shipping to the lower 48--but the similarities end there. If you’re looking for stability and safety up to 300 pounds (vs. 200-250 with the other guys), MojoDesk is the clear choice.
Looking for the most environmentally friendly stand-up desk? Look for a workstation option that is fully Greenguard-certified to reduce VOC (volatile organic compounds) emissions into the air. Found in many everyday products and processes, VOCs can put your health at risk and create air pollution.
The devil is in the details when it comes to building a comfortable workspace--one where you'll likely spend endless hours. Don’t underestimate the importance of choosing the right features, like a desk shape that suits your work environment and contoured edges for wrist comfort.
Ergonomic comfort during long sessions of work or gaming is top priority. In addition to the damage that passionate keyboard users inflict upon the sit-to-stand desk itself, gamers and workers are also punishing their own hands and wrists. Both comfort and stability were key factors in comparing MojoDesk with the IKEA Bekant standing desk side-by-side.
Whether you’re 4’11” or 6’6”, size matters when it comes to choosing the right standing desk. MojoDesk has the greatest height-adjustability on the market today, to deliver the best in health and comfort for users of all shapes and sizes. From reducing and preventing back problems to improving circulation, alternately sitting and standing improves both health and productivity.

Over 25 years of engineering and design knowledge is found in every MojoDesk. No other sit-to-stand desk on the market is built with our level of structural integrity. MojoDesk also includes a 5 Year Warranty. We're proud to offer standing desks that meet the highest industry standards.
Since 1991, the parent company of MojoDesk has designed, manufactured, and installed sit-to-stand workstation solutions for an extensive list of customers including NASA, CIA, FBI, San Francisco Department of Emergency Management, Spaceport America, Detroit PD, Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport and more than three thousand communications centers across North America.
One of the most important safety aspects of a height-adjustable desk is proper collision detection. A sit-to-stand desk should stop immediately when it collides with your knee, chair - anything. Failure to do so can cause the desk to tip over and other risks. MojoDesk is equipped with a high-end collision detection module that is superior to others on the market and which works equally well in both up and down directions.
This certification gives assurance that products designed for use in indoor spaces meet strict chemical emissions limits, which contribute to the creation of healthier interiors. Learn more about Greenguard HERE.
Unlike other consumer sit-to-stand desks, MojoDesk has been tested by independent labs and is certified to meet compliance standards for durability, stability and safety standards from BIFMA (Business and Institutional Furniture Manufacturers Association) and ASTM (American Society for Testing Materials).
One of the stability and safety tests MojoDesk is put through is 20,000 up/down cycles with hundreds of pounds of weights placed in several areas of the desktop.
MojoDesk has a lifting capacity of 300lbs.
Here are a few pictures from the lab. You can read the full details of the BIFMA test by viewing or downloading the report HERE.
