As many of you know, there has been quite a bit of controversy surrounding the use of sit-to-stand desks. To some “sitting is the new smoking” and to others standing can harm your body in some serious ways. In this interesting article, “The good news and bad news about sit-stand desks”, Mark Wilson of Fast Company Magazine reports that “researchers recently analyzed 53 separate studies conducted on sit-stand desks and discovered that, while sit-stand desks certainly aren’t a panacea – and they probably won’t shed inches off your waistline – they can absolutely have a positive impact on your health and well-being.”
Mark goes on to say that “the project was led by April Chambers, research assistant professor at the University of Pittsburgh’s Department of Bio engineering. She tells me that she began getting interested in sit-stand desks because much of her work was in occupational injury prevention for people who were on their feet all day, like nurses and retail workers. So she’d seen first-hand that these active jobs took a real toll on people’s bodies.
‘Sitting all day is bad for you–and standing all day is as well,’ says Chambers, who explains that standing all day can create swelling in your feet, pain, and vascular issues”.
