  • Health: Schoolchildren get into stand-up act

    USA Today - 10/12/2015

    It’s not yet be shown how much people should stand or what are the best alternatives to sitting, particularly for children, said John, who collaborates with Ergotron and uses one of their standing desks in his own office.
