Worried what your sedentary work life might be doing to you? Then you might be in the market for a multipurpose, ergonomic workstation — if you're willing to plunk down serious money for it.
The brainchild of engineer Che Voigt, who has worked with multiple aerospace engineering companies, Altwork has released a $5,900 chair ($3,900 preorder) that is equipped with full desk and monitor mount while allowing the user to work in a range of positions from standing to fully reclining.
For the Silicon Valley employee who never leaves the office, this may not be so outrageous an offer.
"Movement throughout the day is the best thing you can do," said Voigt, co-founder and CEO of Altwork. "People say sitting is the new smoking, but reports now say that standing might not be the best thing you can do either"
