Death Of The Desk Jockey?
Will "standing desks" soon replace our chairs?
At his new workstation everything Dr. Chris Wood once did sitting, he now does standing while walking very slowly on a treadmill.
A telephone, computer keyboard, pencils, pads, papers - everything you'd find on a conventional desk are on this new generation workspace.
"I feel a lot more energetic," he said. "It's funny. You would think you would spend all your energy at the standing desk during the day, feeling tired in the afternoon and evening. But that's not the case. I find I have more get up and go."
Wood made the change following a back injury. He found it difficult sitting in a chair for any length of time.
