Length:  15 pages

Nearly 30 years after the introduction of the PC, scientists are still learning about the effects this technology is having on modern workers, including “sitting disease.” Over half of a person’s waking day might be spent in sedentary behavior, so it is only logical that employers educate workers about how standing, along with other forms of non-exercise activity (pacing during phone calls, frequent breaks, walking meetings, etc.), contributes to their health. Further, this whitepaper investigates how sit-stand workstations are a viable method for increasing non-exercise activity in a computer operator’s workday.
