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 prefer to use a laptop with a separate keyboard and mouse pad, opt for a portable standing laptop desk that will both elevate your laptop to eye-level and provide an additional secure platform to support your laptop and mouse. Using a separate keyboard can be a good idea for laptop users as most laptop keyboards are too small and promote the unnatural, inward shoulder rotation. Also, the use of a separate keyboard can allow users to elevate laptops to a higher, more natural position that promotes proper standing posture.
Criteria. Your chair should be able to be adjusted to any needs regarding height. The worker`s elbows should be able to sit higher than the surface of the desk, while the fingers should point downward. The seat should be able to be tilted forwards and backwards. This will allow the most versatility possible. In order to keep good posture, there should be a lumbar support on the chair. There should also be a backrest that can be moved around to the satisfaction of the user.
When sitting, you can use it to prop up your feet but the real benefits are seen when you are standing. If your feet begin to get tired or you simply feel you need to reposition but remain standing, you can simply place one of your feet on top of the foot stool, which is a very natural position for most people, and will help you stay mobile, increasing your energy and productivity.
Sales people often like to stand when making phone calls and pitching to prospective clients, so speak to sales people that you know to see how they adapt to standing at work. It takes a few weeks to get used to the standing desk. Once you are used to it you won`t even realise you are standing anymore.
