Changing the workplace
Date: 15 Apr 2014
Could offices change from sitting to standing?
A number of studies have suggested that constantly sitting at work is bad for you. So could workplaces be rejigged around standing up?
Medical research has been building up for a while now, suggesting constant sitting is harming our health - potentially causing cardiovascular problems or vulnerability to diabetes.
We can't simply fix it by heading for the gym.
This has big implications not just for homes - usually blamed for "couch potato" lifestyles - but for sedentary workplaces too, especially the modern office.
But when it comes to the average office, reducing sitting is a huge challenge. It means rethinking architecture, spending a lot of money, changing the office routine. Adjustable sit-stand desks can cost many hundreds of pounds.
