Now that science agrees that sitting all day is a bad idea, chair-bound folks need alternatives. My own move to a standing desk involved stacking an IKEA coffee table atop my original desk, but others may desire something a little more stylish. Ergotron manufactures seriously minimalist workstations for ambulatory officeworkers. A colleague purchased one of their products and was happy with the functionality and build quality. Transitioning to all-day standing is difficult at first, but eventually gets easier, and any return to sitting feels quite strange.
