The long periods of standing just allow the damage caused by the valve failure to happen quicker
I've used a standing hydraulic table for ~7 months now. I do 70% standing, switching back and forth to sitting when I feel like it. I would not change my setup for anything in the world.-urlwolf (July 18, 2011, 01:20 PM)
A brief article from Cornell University, with conclusions extracted from studies done there, and the recommendation of taking a break by getting up once in a while, like many posters have suggested through the thread.Something that everyone should be doing to avoid the dreaded carpal tunnel syndrome, right? Yeah, me neither -Lashiec (September 20, 2011, 06:26 PM)
Although I haven't tried a standing desk, I know enough about such ideas to know this would be my experience:http://thenextweb.co...illed-standing-desk/-mouser (April 10, 2014, 06:15 AM)
Most of the people who I've heard advocate for standing desks are noticeably athletic younger people with no disabilities or old injuries to deal with. Like her: (see attachment in previous post)You know the type. -40hz (April 10, 2014, 01:14 PM)
@paulobrabo - ^Well...I guess it's a good thing I said "most of the people" and not "all of the people" huh? -40hz (April 10, 2014, 05:33 PM)
I suspect these things depend on your posture and, if relevant, your reason for having back pain in the first place. I'd imagine that standing could help correct, or exacerbate a back problem, depending on what it is.-tomos (April 10, 2014, 05:50 PM)
"Now a large study undertaken by the University of Exeter and University College London and published in the International Journal of Epidemiology suggests that the problem isn't sitting, it's not getting enough exercise, and that standing (which may be more comfortable for some people in any event) doesn't help.."
study author Melvyn Hillsdon of the University of Exeter said in a statement. "Any stationary posture where energy expenditure is low may be detrimental to health, be it sitting or standing." -The Article

Some people (not me, you understand) might say that any university that publishes supposedly epidemiological research of questionable use/quality may be more concerned with attracting funding than with adding to the body of useful human knowledge, but I couldn't possibly comment.-IainB (October 17, 2015, 05:37 AM)
I've purchased a few things recently, and figured I'd put them in one post.First, I purchased a rather simple stand that I now have four of- it was so cheap and so useful and so easy to use, I had to buy a couple for my wife.https://smile.amazon.../product/B072B6BG38/The next two are semi-related:I've been using a logitech headset for my meetings at work, and wanted something with better wireless and better fidelity, so I purchased a Sennheiser RS185: https://smile.amazon...p/product/B00TOT9G1WIt's great! The most I've ever spent on headphones, but the $70 difference between the logitech when they first came out to the sennheiser really sold me on the fact that yes, audio gear gets better as you spend more.But I needed a microphone. I initially was trying to make it a headset, using the antlion modmic: https://smile.amazon.../product/B00R98JVVU/It was ok, but annoying. From finding the mute switch when in meetings, to adjusting the mic (it uses rare earth magnets to attach it to the base on the headphones- really cool idea, not so good in practice), and of course adhering to the headphones was touch and go.So I decided to just go with a full microphone, and it was the best decision ever!I purchased the Blue Yeti Blackout Edition: https://smile.amazon.../product/B00N1YPXW2/People say it's like I'm in the room with them. The little blinking light for the mute is always visible, and easy to cancel with just a button press. It's great! The only thing is having two audio devices, sometimes skype will reset to using the Blue Yeti as the default device for audio also. But that's just a minor annoyance, and I think it's skype more than anything else.Those two together are a bit more expensive than I ever thought I'd get to for a sound setup, but it's definitely made work meetings from home more bearable.The last things were the Stand Steady standing desk surface- https://smile.amazon...p/product/B00BXOGHQI and the ErgoTech freedom arm- https://smile.amazon.../product/B008TYF0F4/I've wanted to get a standing desk, but have resisted it. I have a very good desk, and really didn't want to get another. I thought of one of those ergodesk/vivodesk additions to the desktop that allow you to raise and lower, but still use your desk. But they're pretty expensive too, and after trying it out, I'm not sure that it would work as well for me.Then I thought, I have my laptop sitting there, and my desktop. What if I made one a standing station, and the other my sitting station. For a fraction of the price of even the ergodesk/vivodesk, I got an easy to use station, and the monitor raises and lowers on the laptop station, so I can bring it down easily- but honestly don't do it much; I just put the monitor in the highest position, and put my stand there next to it, and have pretty much left it that way. I got a mat to go along with it (https://smile.amazon.../product/B01KJT547K/), and it really does seem to work to reduce stress, and I feel better, because sometimes I just want to stand up and stretch out the kinks.-wraith808 (September 10, 2017, 04:30 PM)
