Standing Desk Ergonomics

Standing desk ergonomics

Millions of workers who were previously sentenced to the chair have adopted a sit-to-stand desk in their office. The good news is they’ve taken the first step. They’ve grasped the initiative, and are probably raving about their standing desk to all their friends and co-workers -as they well should. The bad news is that for many of them the next step they’ll be taking will be to their chiropractor, physical therapist, massage therapist, acupuncturist, orthopedist, internist or witch doctor when the aches and pains of a bad workstation setup start to set in.

Check out these articles by our staff experts on standing desk ergonomics to make sure your move to working while standing is an optimally healthy one!
