And the debate begins. Ergonomic experts at Cornell don’t recommend standing desks, instead:
Sit to do computer work. Sit using a height-adjustable, downward titling keyboard tray for the best work posture, then every 20 minutes stand for 2 minutes AND MOVE. The absolute time isn’t critical but about every 20-30 minutes take a posture break and move for a couple of minutes. Simply standing is insufficient.
When you stand, you are almost constantly moving around and fidgeting. You surely aren’t standing with legs locked. Standing is an active behavior. But if you don’t want to stand, this is another option.
