Thinking about a Standing desk?

This is the same model that I had in one of my positions and it worked great. It was so solid and reliable and it really opened up space on the desk when it was used. In addition it made standing or sitting comfortable and the screen and keyboard could be perfectly positioned for ergonomics.

There are studies that show that sitting is as great a risk to health as smoking. That by using a standing desk you can reduce your risk of diabetes and heart problems. This is especially important for minorities who are at greater risk for those issues.

What is nice about this also is that it is a great icebreaker with coworkers. I had people who never talked to me ask me about it when it was installed. It was really amazing to find out how many people considered asking for something like this but were afraid to. So you really gain some respect in asking for what you need to be efficient. I look at it like if this is going to reduce medical care costs, how can we not afford to have an ergonomic environment?

The price for this retail is around $500 which is much cheaper than one doctor visit or having a problem later. I have also lost weight when I used this and felt more energy and vitality. Sitting really is tough when you realize it from not sitting.
