Sit vs. Stand Webinar – June 5, 2013

Sit v Stand

Join Ergotron’s Wendy McCubbin, aka @workfitwendy and Sr. Manager, Worksite Wellness, and Humantech’s Christy Lotz, Managing Consultant and Ergonomics Engineer, on Wednesday, June 5, for this complimentary webinar:

Sit vs. Stand: What’s the Best Ergonomic Design?

Ergotron is sponsoring this Humantech webinar, which tackles the question: “To sit, or not to sit?” Does one scenario offer better ergonomics over the other?  Since June also happens to be National Employee Wellness Month, it is fitting to discuss a topic that has been debated across all industries—from industrial, to laboratory, to office environments. Prolonged sitting promotes a lack of whole-body muscle movement while prolonged standing leads to fatigue and swelling in the legs. With obvious pros and cons for both, it is difficult to take a stand against one or the other.

This free, 45-minute webinar will teach you how and when to design for appropriate seated and standing workstations based on critical design features and ergonomic design guidelines.
