"Sitting is the new smoking, even people who exercise on a regular basis are still at risk," said Kamron Kunce, director of Community Relations at UpDesk told us. "Companies around the world are beginning to realize the health benefits of utilizing a height-adjustable standing desk and integrating movement into the workday."

Indeed, Travis Saunders, a Ph.D. student and certified exercise physiologist at the Healthy Active Living and Obesity Research Group at Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario, told Runner's World magazine that up until very recently, if you exercised for 60 minutes or more a day, you were considered physically active, case closed.

"Now a consistent body of emerging research suggests it is entirely possible to meet current physical activity guidelines while still being incredibly sedentary, and that sitting increases your risk of death and disease, even if you are getting plenty of physical activity," he said. "It's a bit like smoking. Smoking is bad for you even if you get lots of exercise. So is sitting too much."

Great, but really expensive. Yes you can get an updesk for 25% the cost, but you can get the one I have, the Stand Steady, for 5% the cost www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00C344VMY. There are lots of great options out there to stand for under 1K; 4K is way too much!
