Itīs lightweight, portable, with a great design, easy to assemble and disassemble and to define the different height levels you want to put to use, no tools needed. Elevate provides a higher position for the screen, and a middle platform for a secondary keyboard and mouse, so you donīt get the whole elevation of the work station, you get different levels, because your bodyīs needs change, when youīre sitting or standing.
