Even with regular exercise, excessive sitting linked to disease, premature death – OHS Canada Magazine.

Great review of the literature by top researchers regarding sitting at work & negative health outcomes. What we are missing here are the equally important studies about risks associated with static standing at work. At OPC Inc we advise our clients to assess the specific job demands of each employee/group of employees & devise the correct solution in these cases. At the end of the day it is dynamic movement such as shifting your weight while standing, walking during lunch & use of regular micro-breaks which will have a greater impact on employee health than any seeming panacea.

Static Standing is just as bad for health as static sitting. Time to talk ergonomics based on science not on sales of standing workstations.
