Standing Desk – Work Healthier
Get off your butt and try standing at your desk with these ergonomic tips!
Ever since I started to have some pain in my right hip, I found myself standing while working on the computer a lot more frequently. Since I have just build a breakfast bar during my home remodel, I found I really enjoyed standing there while working on my laptop (recently bought an Apple Macbook Air). I noticed my hip pain wasn’t so bad either.
Ergonomic Sit-Stand Standing Desk
Where can I buy one?
Amazon has them available with free shipping HERE.
When I started to research a stand-up desk. Ergotron was the first company that came to mind when I thought “Ergonomics”. I jumped on their site and quickly found what I was looking for right on their homepage. The Workfit-D Sit-Stand Workstation would be the desk that replaces my large corner desk that I used for many years.

One last thing, my Mom, wife, cats, and myself are currently fighting over who gets to use this sit-stand standing desk. Maybe we will have to come up with a compromise and have a set time frame for each person to be able to use it. I guess we will have to figure it out.
What do you all think of the desk?
