Couple creates desk to help prevent neck pain

About the solution

These desks work by being placed on the normal desks, and they are available on several sizes.

Bill founded his own company, Anderlyn Desk Company, in 2007.

It all started when Bill had aggravating neck pain by using his regular desk. This caused him swelling at the C7 vertebra.

The entrepreneur went to see his chiropractor, who was Carolyn’s (Bill’s wife) employer. He told Bill his problem was related to his desk’s height.

So the couple went home and decided to build a desk that would suit Bill better.

They started by creating a plywood prototype, and Bill used an Ikea stool on which to sit when not standing.
“It took a real collaboration on how to get this thing functional”, the inventor recalled.

The prototype proved to be effective, so then the couple looked for a company that would produce these desks, which are made mostly of PVC and ABS plastics. It takes about five minutes to assemble the desk.
