When I was at a start up we had something like these. 

https://www.autonomous.ai/?slug=smartdesk-sit-to-stand-height-adjustable...

I spent most of my time sitting down but after sitting down for a while it was nice to stand up and still do work. They were pretty sweet because I felt like I could keep working where if I had a desk where I'd be sitting at only I would've needed to get up to take a 15 min break.

We already discussed, but I love mine. If anyone has serious back problems I’ve also seen a ton of people switch to sitting on a medicine ball throughout the day, much better for your back / spine.

if you really want to make it rain though....

My work refuses to get me

My work refuses to get me one, so I usually just get up every half hour or so and walk around. I used to have a giant medicine ball to sit on which can be helpful. For home I bought one off of woot.com when it was on sale for like $200. I'd recommend the one from IKEA though.

Just picked a new one up for $60 from an online auction here in town. My buddy broke my last one. Still got my original jerker standing desk in storage too

I love the DIY standing desk kit

I purchased just the DIY standing desk kit from Autonomous and used the top from my old IKEA desk as I didn't want to lose any of the space I previously had and was used to the dimensions. It was really easy to put together (I had a second person handy to help) and it goes up and down with ease. The memory buttons make going up and down a breeze. I don't know why everyone isn't talking about this desk - I certainly am! The desk is a steal at the price. Made my life 1000x's better! #diystandingdesk

I've used a tall dresser for extended periods of time, its nice to be able to have a keyboard/notebook at perfect hand level and a screen at exactly eye level. I find myself moving around more as my chin neck and shoulders dont get as tight from staring down at something, its so easy to move on to something else instead of letting the computer suck up hours of life.
A more empowering way to use technology for sure, until VR becomes less cumbersome. At that point it will be a game changer to incorporate physical actions into how we interact with technology.... I can just imagine what MW would do! (Make it a requirement to do increasingly stressful exercises for clients to be able to access more material, aka "the feminist test")... Hahahaha

I'm not sure what sort of stats you're interested in, I imagine that most people who transition a standing desk are either a) super mindful of their health or b) reacting to chronic issues. I know I'm in the b group, so I'm not quite at a point where im tracking and journaling those kinds of observations
