You’re looking at Resound’s new toy.  Well, it’s really Garrett’s new toy, but it’s in our office and we get to push the button.  That’s right, Garrett bought himself a mechanical desk – one that allows him to stand or sit on a whim.  This desk is the first of its kind at Resound, and we’re excited to see how Garrett likes it.

We’ve heard great things about standing desks.  Evan Lahti, an avid online gamer, tried a standing desk for one year.

Joseph Stromberg of Smithsonian Magazine shares some benefits to standing at your desk.
