My friend Brian has recently decided to move to a standing desk setup at work and asked my opinion about it. Because he is smart, he researched this before just jumping in. This means he didn’t just buy a taller desk, but has considered all elements of the desk ergonomics. Based on that, I think it sounds like a really interesting option, which is what I told him. I do have concerns about this approach for someone who has neck troubles, as the lack of arm rests could be troublesome. But otherwise, it sounds interesting.
If this is a topic that has made you go “hmmm”, then I suggest you read through Brian’s blog post about it:
He’ll be updating it once he’s tried it out for a couple of weeks, and I’ll be sure to update you when he does. I know I’m curious about it.
