Frequently asked questions
Can I use a monitor arm with the Stir Kinetic Desk?
If you do not have a monitor with it’s own stand, a monitor arm can be helpful to be sure your head is in a comfortable position. The M1 is 1.125” thick and is designed to accommodate most clamp-style monitor arms available today. The F1 is 3.5” thick so the monitor arm clamp should accommodate that size. Stir does not recommend drilling into the desktop surface for any reason

Most people find that when the monitor is elevated, a dedicated keyboard tray is not necessary. The M1 model will accommodate select keyboard tray models with 11” rails. The F1 model does not support a keyboard tray.
