A Stand Up Guy

After returning to work following each of my hip replacements, I found it difficult to sit while working (for obvious reasons), and seriously considered looking into a standing workstation for my home office. When we did a little home upgrading recently by swapping out some furniture, I pulled the trigger on a sit-stand workstation setup.

I spent quite a while researching the various models and brands available — if I’m going to spend money on this, I’m not going to want to end up with sore shoulders, neck, or arms after a day’s work, so I wanted one that would fit me (and Mo). The only one I found that was tall enough when I stood yet extended low enough when I sat was built by Ergoprise. I bought the dual monitor model, and picked up a VESA conversion needed for mounting one of my monitors, plus a wireless keyboard to cut back on the number of wires.

So far, I’m finding that I’m good for about 45 minutes at a time before my feet begin to hurt. I may get a mat to stand on sometime, but for now I’ll take breaks and sit a bit.

It will take some time to work into standing for more extended periods, and it may take even longer to clean off my desktop!
