Mixing it up at work is better than only sitting, or only standing, for the whole day. Or, if you want to get specific, Cornell University experts advise that after sitting for 20-30 minutes, stand up for a bit and move around.

SAN FRANCISCO – October 28th, 2015
Altwork, a creator of workstations for high-intensity computer users, today launched its preorder campaign for the company’s inaugural product: the Altwork Station.

The Altwork Station is designed for high-intensity computer users such as software developers, CAD users, writers, and animators, among many other professions. These professionals constantly are challenged to remain productive as they bounce back and forth between sitting, standing, collaborating and focusing for extended periods of time on complex tasks. With the press of a single button, the Altwork Station uses patented technology to seamlessly transform from a standard task chair or standing desk into a reclined ‘focus’ position in seconds.
“We designed the Altwork Station as a tool for professionals who use a computer all day.” said Che Voigt, CEO and a founder of Altwork. “The Altwork Station allows the people who are developing and designing our future to seamlessly sit, stand, collaborate, and focus at the push of a button, so they can work smarter and more efficiently.”
Designed and built in Sonoma County, California, the Altwork Station is an integrated sit-stand-recline-focus system crafted from globally sourced, sustainable materials. With an 18 sq. ft. footprint and built-in casters, the workstation allows for easy open-office movement and impromptu collaboration.
