It's healthier for you then sitting all day. They even have a treadmill desk if you feel really ambitious!

No but I have heard good things about them. I have also considered one as I have back issues. Will be curious to see what people say.

I've got the Varidesk adjustable desk and it's a game changer.  Amazing how much more energy I have when I'm standing and working.

There is a great desk system that I checked out years ago but it was a little steep. Will see if I can find it. Moved from sitting to standing with a slight push.

Of 5 people I know who were given standing desks none remain in use today after less than a year. I don't think the ergonomics of a standing desk has been completely thought out yet.

LOL Ray asked me what I wanted for my birthday and I asked for a Varidesk!! It was back-ordered and won't arrive until the 31st but, I suppose being back-ordered says something for the popularity.

I pace when I'm on the phone but, when I'm typing, I sit WAY too much time so, getting one of these seemed like the logical thing to do.

I have thought about it and checked them out.  Instead, though, I bought a bar table specifically to stand at while working on my laptop.  I felt it was more versatile than a stand-up desk unit.  I can move it wherever I want in the house... in my office, in front of the TV, or wherever I want it.

I don't see the need personally - get up and walk around if you get stiff.

I just don't get how all of a sudden things are bad for us after we've been doing them for hundreds of years and no one ever complained.

No, I'll save the money and get up and stretch if I need to

Nathan Gesner - it is all about mindset.

If you believe this kind of a desk will help you, it will - go for it.

And after you purchase, if you feel it did not make any difference, that is true, too - so just don't buy it....

I have one and I love it, I can't sit still for long hours, so varidesk works great for me. Before you buy one, try a tall-boy which is about the same height and wouldn't cost you more than $50.00. If you like it, get standing desk.
