What is a sit-stand workstation?

Q:

What is a sit-stand workstation?

A:

Calvin: It seems like the perfect time to talk about sit-stand workstations. Tell me a bit about sit-stand workstations. What are they?



Linda: Well, sit-stand workstations allow people to move from either a seated posture to a full standing posture. And why a lot of ergonomists, as well as people in general industry, like sit-stand workstations, is it does allow for some postural variation, and it also allows if I have a number of people using the same workstation, I can accommodate a number of people of different size and stature. So it's actually a really positive thing, but it has to be used correctly.
