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.

YES! I love that more people are getting on this healthier bandwagon. Not only will you have more energy at the end of the day from standing at work, but I've also noticed that my appetite has gone DOWN (which is kind of counter intuitive, right?)
Anyway, just wanted to say thanks for the post and spread the word about a new product that I'm really excited about called the NextDesk solo. It's adjustable in height, it's small, and it's affordable. Check it out on their site if you're interested!
