Coy always keeps his desk lifted up so that he has to stand up to work on his computer. I thought I would give it a try, too!! It stayed up there for the day (Friday), but yesterday morning when I came in I lowered it. I guess it'll just depend on my mood. It really is good to work standing, though. It keeps me more awake. I can't sit back and relax in my chair when I am standing up - and it seems to be better for my back, too.
I really want to get one of these chairs. A friend had one and I tried it out - wonderful!!! It reminds me of a massage chair I have a little stool at home right now that I use for my computer desk (I'm in a one bedroom that doesn't leave a lot of room for a big desk!!). The stool really isn't that comfortable, but at the time it was cheap and easy b/c it was so small. It fits up under my desk out of the way!
I really think a better chair would help my back to feel better - and getting out of this chair in the office more often wouldn't hurt either! I wonder if I would get a lot of grief if I brought a kneeling chair into the office!! I am sure I would (it might be worth it)!
When we were still in our old office building they let everyone vote on the new chairs we would have when we moved out here. No, I didn't vote so I know I can't complain, but I can't believe the chairs we have won. They have about a thousand different adjustments to them, but even so it never feels just right. Some people have said that the mesh in the seat has ruined their clothes, too. They bought us these covers for the seat, but it's basically just a thin piece of material w/ elastic around the edge to keep it on the chair. Maybe I don't have my adjusted right. After all, it's supposed to be THE Ultimate Ergonomic Mesh Office Chair!!!!
