The Fellowes sit-stand workstation has been shown to improve posture and cognitive performance. According to exercise physiologist Jack Gropper, movement and exercise, even on a minimal level, stimulate blood flow and oxygenation to the brain - a sense of feeling better which boosts productivity.

In a recent study published in the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine, Stanford University Researchers concluded that lower back pain may be improved through the use of standing desks.
