Myths vs. Facts: Sit to Stand Workstations Part 2
Everyone needs to have a sit‐stand workstation.
If your are happy with your current workstation, experience little or no discomfort (especially in the lower back), and have a job that allows you to get up and move during the course of the day, you probably do not need a sit stand workstation.
Individuals with lower extremity orthopedic problems (ankle, knee or hip issues) may not be able to tolerate extended periods of standing.
Individuals with jobs requiring precision, targeted, visually intensive work e.g., micro-assembly or intensive graphic design, perform better in a seated posture.
