Anyone who works in an office knows the aches and pains that come with sitting at a desk, hunched over a computer all day. Backaches, sore legs, stiff neck and carpal tunnel syndrome have been common afflictions for office dwellers since office work became a common way to do business.
After years of complaints from workers, employers are finally starting to see the benefit of adopting ergonomically-designed workspaces to ensure workers are more comfortable during their time at the office and reduce the number of injury complaints.
Among the new technologies being implemented in offices are Stand Up Desks. These desks are higher than standard desks to allow a worker to stand while doing their work instead of sitting in a chair. The idea is to allow a worker to keep their body straight to reduce the aches and pains that come with sitting.
Many offices offer this type of desk or at least allow workers to request it if needed.
