15 Practical Desk Gadgets That Keep You Organized and Healthy

December 2, 2019

– [Reacher] When you
sit down at your desk, do you ever feel like
it needs something more? This is Reacher with Mind’s Eye Design and here are 15 desk and
work station accessories you may not even know you need. But before we begin
don’t forget to subscribe for more amazing content and ring that bell to become part of our awesome notification team. (electronics whirr) Number 15. This one from Chinese-based
company, Huanuo can handle dual monitors
up to 27 inches wide and weighing up to 17.6 pounds each. Each one attaches using a
C-clamp instead of bolts which allows for easy movement if needed. This also eliminates the need for drilling so there’s no damage to your desk. The gas spring construction is
made from aluminum and steel. Each of the removable
arms can raise to a height of 22.6 inches and extend to 22.4 inches. The monitors are easily adjustable with the ability to swivel and tilt, as well as being able
to rotate 360 degrees. Pricing on this one starts around $70. (upbeat music) Number 14. If you caught our last video
about desks and workstations then you heard us mention
this under-the-desk leg swing called HOVR. It’s made to promote active sitting, which to me sounds like one of the biggest oxymorons I’ve ever heard. A steel bar with footpads at each end is attached to a strap which
is placed under the desk using a floor stand, or mounted
to hang from underneath. The free range of motion
allowed by the unit promotes movement of the lower body, without the user having
to leave their chair. Not only does it help burn calories and increase circulation,
it requires no concentration or conscious effort to do so. Pricing will run you about
$75 for the mounted version, or $175 with the floor stand. (upbeat music) Number 13. I’m sure I’m not the only one that cringes every time they see a bunch of wires lying and hanging with wanton disregard. Considering the ever-increasing
number of gadgets we seem to accumulate, it only makes sense to organize the cables
in a manageable way. This minimalist solution is a cube made from either brass
or industrial steel, with a groove cut into one
side for a wire to run through. Each side of the cube
measures a centimeter, making it the perfect size to use on a charging cable or headphones. The cubes are stackable and
weigh about four ounces each, so any cable that you do use it on will definitely stay in place. The pricing on these runs $25 each. (playful music) Number 12. There’s no misleading you
with the name of this one. It’s exactly what it says it is. The Foot Hammock is
composed of mesh or fleece, and connects to the underside of any desk using straps and adhesive hooks that can support over 100 pounds. It can be adjusted to
hang as low as four feet, or pull up against the bottom
of the desk when not in use. The elasticity of the material allows it to be used in all positions, whether you’re sitting or reclining. And in case you’re wondering,
it is machine washable, so there is no worries if you have to give it the occasional cleaning. (upbeat music) Number 11. Just like our first entry, this one also promotes active
sitting, and to be honest I’m starting to love the way
those two words sound together. This under-desk elliptical
trainer is called Cubii, and the company claims that
it’s the first of its kind. It sits on the floor in
front of the user’s chair, and just like normal ellipticals, it has pedals that drive a
wheel under protective housing. The ergonomic design and
eight measures of resistance make it perfect for people of
all ages and fitness levels. It even has Bluetooth capabilities
to allow it to connect to a smartphone for activity tracking. It comes in three models
that range in price from $249 to $399. (upbeat music) Number 10. This one is for those of you who prefer standing when working, and wanna get in a bit of
stretching while doing so. The TerraMat by CubeFit is another device that promotes health through movement. Each mat has foam-like 3D features that allow over 11 different stances. This helps stretch your leg
muscles and massage your feet, as well as strengthening your core, which enables you to have more energy and stand for longer periods. The extra-thick design
and rugged materials allow it to be used with
or without shoes on. It comes in two versions,
with prices of $150 and $200. (upbeat music) Number nine. The name of this one is an acronym for a magnetic cable organizer. The simple little strap is meant
to be wrapped around cables to keep them from tangling,
using magnetic snaps on each end that allow
it to stay together. It comes in two sizes, with the smaller one
intended for use on earbuds, and the bigger one used for cables. There’s also a magnetic cable dock that suctions to most surfaces, so you can leave it attached to the cable and stick it to the dock when not in use. The smaller one comes
in a three-pack for $18. The bigger one comes in a two-pack, with different styles
ranging from $22 to $36. (upbeat music) Number eight. These cables follow the
same concept as a USB hub by utilizing one port to allow
access for multiple devices. Each one can be used by itself, or in tandem with other cables via a built-in USB port
in the head of the plug, which allows multiple cables
to be plugged in to one another yet still be connected
to individual devices. The company makes
standard Micro-USB, USB-C and Lightning cables, as
well as offering a full line to accommodate cameras, printers, flash drives, and other devices. Individual cables run $29, or
you can buy a pack of five, all in different colors, for $99. (upbeat music) Number seven. We’ve already talked
about cable management, so it was inevitable that we
talk about organizing the items that seem to be a staple on any desk, regardless of the purpose or environment. This handy little Desk
Rail is just what’s needed to keep it all in place. The aluminum construction
weighs in at 2 1/2 pounds and measures 17 inches
long by three inches wide. A groove running in the center of the rail is lined with foam cushioning to protect and grip anything that is put into it, such as pens, paper, reference
materials and cellphones. The end panels on each rail are notched, and rotate open to accommodate
a charging cable if needed. Pricing on this one can be found by contacting the manufacturer. (upbeat music) Number six. This one looks like a
miniature power strip but a little over eight inches long and almost two inches wide. It plugs into any standard outlet and connects to your PC or
laptop via, you guessed it, USB. A total of 11 ports are included with four of them allowing smart charging, and seven that are used for
high-speed data transfer. LED indicators light up to let you know which ports are in use. Each one also has its own on/off button to manage power to your devices without having to unplug them. Pricing on this one
will run you about $40. (upbeat music) Number five. This one is the perfect laptop desk whether you’re on the go or just lounging on the couch at home. It’s composed of plastic
and aluminum alloys, giving it a total weight
of just under two pounds. It measures 14 1/2 inches by 9 1/2 inches and is just 3/4 of an inch
high when it’s not open. It offers 20 different configurations, so you can work comfortably whether you’re standing,
sitting or lying down. The two-tiered design allows the user to double their workspace by
utilizing the area underneath for such things as
paperwork or other devices. There’s even a slide-out tray to hold your favorite beverage. Pricing on this one
will run you about $60. (upbeat music) Number four. This monitor stand from MonitorMate is nothing short of artistic. Each one is made from aluminum and steel with a sleek minimalist design, perfect for the modern office space. Each ProBASE weighs about three pounds and measures 21 by nine inches, with a height of 6 1/2 inches. Port options include USB-C, HDMI, USB 3.0, and a card reader that
fits SD and Micro SD. There’s also a storage drawer that can hold any smaller
accessories when not in use. Not only does it function as a stand for your laptop or
monitor, but it also serves as a fast-charger for all your devices. (upbeat music) Number three. This standing desk convertor
is the perfect alternative if you don’t have a huge chunk of change to invest in a standup desk. At first glance it looks
like a miniature desk that sits on a countertop
or standard floor desk. It measures 27 inches
wide, 31 inches deep, and has a closed height
of just under six inches. A handle on the side allows the user to raise it straight
up to almost 20 inches, with a choice of 12 height adjustments. The FlexiSpot is also compatible with ergonomic monitor mounts. The classic riser comes
in three size options with prices ranging from $270 to $350. (upbeat music) Number two. Like other devices on this list, this treadmill is made to promote healthy movement while working. It slides under a standing
desk for the user to walk on. Although it measures in
at about five feet long and two feet wide, with
a weight of 88 pounds, it’s easily movable due to
the wheels on the front. The unit runs at a modest
two miles per hour, and it’s quiet as a fan,
so there’s no worries about disturbing your
coworkers while in use. A desktop console controls the treadmill as well as tracking your
speed, time and distance. Current pricing on this one runs $899. (upbeat music) Hey everyone, do you
prefer to keep it simple, or trick your workstation
out with some useful gadgets? Be sure to let us know in the
comments what your style is, and which of these
accessories are your favorite. (upbeat music) Number one. Like our number three, this
one also allows the user to transform a sitting
desk into a standing desk. And where this one is a bit more in price, it more than makes up for it in features. The Winston-E can adjust
up to 18.4 inches in height for the main keyboard stand, and up to 37.6 inches
for the monitor height. It can fit up to three 24 inch monitors and support up to 40 pounds. The keyboard and the
monitors can tilt and rotate independently of each other, while programmable
functions allow the user to save preset heights
for one-touch control. Pricing on this one
starts at around $1,200. (upbeat music) – Hey guys, this is Cassie. I hope you guys enjoyed this video. Tell us in the comments
