Warning issued about sit-or-stand workstation that could cause impact injury

A workstation at which users can sit or stand has been recalled over safety concerns.

The product, which is sold under a variety of names including Adas Elevo Sit-to-Stand Desktop, can malfunction when more than the permitted weight is applied to it.

That causes the gas cylinders to separate and discharge, posing an impact injury hazard.

About 4,000 of the units, which are made in China, have been sold in Canada.

Other names the product is sold under include: K&A Manufacturing Helium Surface, 3M Precision Standing Desk, Inscape WS, Skyrockit Height Adjustable Desk, Neutral Posture Ergonomics StandUp X1, Workrite Ergonomics Solace Desktop, Volante and IMOVR Ziplift.

The affected lot numbers include:

- 16-######-VOL

- 17-######-VOL

- 18-######-VOL

- 19-######-VOL

Consumers should immediately contact the unit’s distributor, Knape & Vogt, for a free in-home repair.

They can be reached at 1-888-667-1501.
