Standing desks have been growing in popularity for some time. They have much to recommend them. Many people with bad backs find standing, at least some of the time, better for their backs. Standing burns more calories than sitting. The standing desk encourages more movement, and being able change positions throughout the day is good for everyone. We weren’t designed to sit for 8 – 10 hours a day. One recommendation is to stand for 30 – 45 minutes and then sit for a similar time.
For the last year, so many desk workers are working from home, and this will continue in some form. If they were lucky enough to have a standing desk at work, it probably didn’t go home with them. There may not be room at home for a standing desk. And they are expensive!
But there is now a cheaper and smaller alternative. The Financial Times had a short piece on three versions of adjustable, table/desk top designs that allow the keyboard and screen to be at the perfect standing height. All fold flat for easy storage and are quick to assemble. And all are under £200
