The study examined the potential weight management benefits of sit-stand desks and found that regular use of a height-adjustable workstation, when combined with other low-intensity activities, is an effective measure for maintaining weight for most people. If an individual were to stand for half-an-hour then they could burn 5.5 times more calories than they would do sitting for that entire hour. Standing for the full hour could burn an extra 8.2 calories.
