Ergotron Workfit-P Sit-Stand Workstation for a Healthier You

Podcast: Play in new window | Download (Duration: 6:16 — 289.3MB) I have a Workfit-D desk and I love it. I can adjust the desk at will to my needs and even stand to help stay fit. In a 8 hour work day, we can sit up to 7 hours – not counting lunch. When we stand, we promote positive blood flow and can even lower our blood pressure. Why a sit-stand desk rather than a static desk? You don’t want to stand all the time. Even though it helps with your blood pressure, equal time can help your feet...

I now have 3 laptops and two tablets that I also use. Add to that the desktop really isn’t as obsolete in power as it would have been in 2004. So I’ve upgraded the machine during the five years to keep it working as best it can. New memory, new hard drives and even the upgrade of the video card. Over the...
