Reply Vanessa Blaylock December 20, 2013 at 6:34 pm Hi Carly Bird! What a beautiful website! And what a great, funny, and true post! You’ve legitimately identified a lot of not-so-smart-after-all misconceptions about the “great” stand-up desk. The thing is, many decades of research really does show that sitting is bad for your health. The first research I’ve heard about is from early last century. Some British researcher noticed the curious fact that on average bus drivers died at a younger age than bus ticket takers. The research seemed to say that even the activity increase of walking through be bus instead of sitting in the driver’s seat made a real impact on how much time you had to enjoy life in this world. Since then, more and more research. So sitting is bad. But as you show with such great honesty and humor, standing is fatiguing. I actually do like to stand, but I can’t do it for all that long. The answer is NOT a “standing desk,” it is a “treadmill desk!” Walking is better for you than standing anyway, and even though you’d think it’d be more work than standing, it’s not. I’m tired after an hour or so of standing at my desk. But I can walk all day and I feel great. And you only walk at 1 mph or so, so it’s not running at all. You can talk on the phone and you’re not out of breath. You don’t sweat. You can wear nice clothes. I have the luxury of working in my own studio, so I have both a chair and a treadmill desk. I like to sit for a while, stand for a while, walk for a while. These days you can buy fancy treadmill desks or just make your own. I already had a nice drafting table, so I stuck a large monitor on an arm in front of it and put a treadmill up against it. I’m really happy with it. Thanks for the lovely post and the wonderful blog Carly Bird! Keep up the great work and best wishes for life, career, and everything else in 2014!

Drafting Chair For Standing Desk

We know that working at a standing desk leaves us with more energy at the end of the day. We know the increased activity level that standing for parts of the day gives us leads to firmer muscles and greater creativity. However, standing too long at a time leads to muscle fatigue and discomfort. The proper standing desk mat alleviates that somewhat, but for maximum benefit of working at a standing desk you should consider purchasing an adjustable height desk or include the right standing desk chair.

dunno why this post is so popular. it’s funny. but it makes a mockery of standing up, instead of being of any help. sitting is a problem, so standing seems to be the only option we have, for now, until technology changes at least. I tried all sorts, now I’m thinking of getting a drafting chair, I already have a large adjustable desk.. that I normally use at regular, sitting height. because standing for hours is not healthy either, and it’s also very tiresome. so you can’t focus on your work. humans were designed for activity, like walking, jogging, climbing trees.. or resting. not for standing still. I can walk all day and I’ll need very little rest. but standing all day is just as bad as sitting all day.

A reviewer says her doctor recommended working at a standing desk to alleviate stenosis, and she is finding the chair to be excellent for her issues. A six foot, 200 pound male says the chair at the highest point fits his desk height perfectly. Several people mentioned the chair rolls too easily making it a little scary. One said she ordered gliders to replace the wheels. Only 72 percent of reviewers give the chair a four star or higher rating. Many of the three stars are because the chair is too tall, though, a feature that would be sought out by other buyers. The chair has a Certified Green seal for having low VOC emitting materials.

Wait, a chair for a standing desk? Yes, and let me explain why. One of the biggest misconceptions (I think) that people have about standing desks is that they stand at them all the time. But from what I’ve found, this isn’t good either. Our bodies aren’t meant to do that (especially with very little movement). The solution is a combination of sitting and standing, thus your standing desk should allow for both.

Reply gaius gracchus August 24, 2013 at 10:44 pm Standing all day can also be problematic. That is why we went with a treadmill desk. Makes all the difference in the world! We do alternate with some time sitting – it is maybe 50/50. But it feels really good to walk slowly while we work instead of just stand or sit. We forget we are walking we get so engrossed into our work on our computers. We got a new Multitable and we LOVE IT!!! We ordered the entire table from them, not just the base — they customized it for us, too. We checked out almost every standup desk on the market before settling on this one. They have a plethora of types of desks – something for everyone. Although they had models that fit over their own treadmills, we already had a high-end Precor treadmill at home. Note that most of the treadmills that come from the standup desk combos have no console in front to get in the way, but ours, just like a gym model, does. So we needed the table that goes up really high, plus we needed a more narrow table since we are further back on the treadmill due to the console. Plus, we just have small laptops so no need for a wider desk. They took their table from the treadmill combo and created a customized top for us. Also they were able to adjust the width. It fits perfectly! The inner width is 34″ between the legs, the tabletop is 36″ wide and 18″ deep. The height goes up to 54 inches!!!! Yayyyh! Finally we found one that fit our needs over our treadmill! (good luck finding one that tall, and, if you do, good luck getting the rest of these dimensions.) It was pretty easy to assemble, and putting things together is not my forte. We ordered the “left-handed” model, which is just having the crank on the left side, since our treadmill is up to the wall on the right side. We really appreciate a manual operation, although they certainly have electric models. I don’t want another thing to have to plug in, and it takes so little effort to crank it, why bother with electric. Their customer service is outstanding. Their prices are far, far better than any other desk of this quality, and especially compared to companies who are willing to customize for you.

Reply Mojo Creator January 3, 2015 at 4:11 pm We use stand up desks and they are a huge part of our focus on health maintenance. We offer each employee two monthly massages, two acupuncture sessions and a free membership to a gym. The standing desk is a very important piece to this system. You comments seem focused on building the desk and the desk functionality. If you took those two arguments out you will be left with a system that allows you to sit or stand within seconds, no blocks and no Ikea setup. We use UpDesks at our office and they have been a great addition. Within seconds we can move our desk up or down. Add a balance board to the system and using a desk turns into more than typing a keyboard.

If you are working in an office then it is very important to work in a relaxed environment, because the quality of the work is sometimes affected due to uncomfortable surroundings. The purpose of the standing desk chair is to give the employees a relaxed sitting during their work. A chair in front of standing desk will enable you to adjust the seat of the chair according to your height. In this way, you will get an ease during your work for longer period of times.
