    While office chairs are infinitely adjustable within a range of 6 to 8 inches, desks, whether sitting or standing, are not. They come in a standard height. While a 30 inch standard office desk can be used by workers of different heights, a standing desk needs to be customized specifically for each worker based on their arm, leg and torso lengths. A vast majority of companies will cannot, and will not, justify the expense of individually customized standing desks for their workforce.

    While the above may be the accepted wisdom for today, it may change in a few years. All we have to do is look at is the "wisdom" on nutrition standards. When I was in schools, the 7 Basic Food Groups was the accepted standard. Then that standard was declared outmoded and was replaced by the Food Pyramid. Now something else is replacing the Food Pyramid. It seems like a new standard comes out every 10 years or so.

    I don't I'll be rushing to buy or build a standing desk any time soon.

    Standing isn't a cure-all either. I had to have veins removed from both legs because my job standing 10 hours a day for 25 years caused them to distend from the constant pressure. I'd give quite a lot for a sitting job.

    Oops...too late.

    I think the only good answer is to abolish this ridiculous working thing. Problem solved. :)
