I'm a software developer and met up with a friend who is also a developer at Thanksgiving. He's been using a stand for his laptop so he can stand at work. I picked one up and started using it about a week ago. I quickly became aware that I'd lost the ability to stand for any length of time. I'm now up to 1 hour every other day and it's really working my lower leg muscles over. There's lots of chatter around the net about the benefits of doing this (probably put up by the stand makers ).
Anybody else have any experience with this?
