Of course, standing all day in one position is almost as bad as sitting all day. Standing desks can be equipped with high stools and footrests to allow you to rest your feet and legs occasionally. As with a normal sit-down desk, it is also important to move around, such as by taking a few minutes to stretch every hour or taking brief walks around the office.
If you are looking at standing desks, one of the best options is actually getting one that allows the user to sit or stand. We know the dangers of too much sitting; however there also is a danger if you are standing all day long. Standing for hours not only causes extreme fatigue, but issues with blood flow can also result. The ideal solution is the ability to stand when you have energy, and then sit when you get tired. For myself, I like to stand at work in the morning for 2-3 hours, and then sit during the afternoon.
Another common weak point in traditional is that they often only elevate the entire desk surface. These up/down desks do not improve the standing posture because they typically don`t elevate materials to eye-level. This causes people to hunch over books, documents, and screens while standing - which is of course not beneficial to your back or long-term health.
Some of these "sit to stand" desks can get pretty expensive, so it is a good idea to check all of your options and find something that is right for you. Standing desks can adjust either manually (the whole table is on a hinge) or electronically, where at the push of a button, the entire desk can elevate or descend to your exact height and needs.
Most standing desks are very simplistic in design, involving a shelf for a computer, a shelf for a keyboard and sometimes an extra shelf or drawer for other belongings. Some are the length of regular desks, while others are simply made to be computer stations. Depending on the intricacy and features of the desk, the price can range from $150 to many thousands of dollars. The most expensive are the hydraulic adjustable desks that serve as both full-size sitting and standing desks.
