The beginningsOur Story

LoctekMotion founder and CEO Lane Shaw had suffered from lower back pain for years. He was researching techniques to relieve chronic back pain when he discovered manual height-adjustable desks. These desks, he learned, could transition from sitting to standing as needed. Eager to try anything that would make a difference for his pain, Lane bought one. He found that having control over the ergonomics of his workstation effectively relieved his back pain.


Lane had only one issue with his new height-adjustable desk: the manual crank was too slow and cumbersome. He wanted a sit-stand desk that didn’t require as much effort to adjust the settings, so he decided to design a solution himself. Lane established LoctekMotion and began to manufacture electric standing desks that automatically transition from sitting to standing position at the touch of a button.


As part of the height-adjustable desk design, Lane created lifting columns that facilitated the smooth, stable lifting motion. He quickly realized the lifting columns would also be useful for garage storage shelves, kitchen cabinets and more. Seniors, people with disabilities, and people with back pain (like Lane himself) often struggle to reach heavy things stored in high places. If shelves were height-adjustable, he realized, they would be more accessible.


Today, LoctekMotion products are used around the world in a variety of applications to make daily environments more accessible and ergonomic for everyone.
