The Stand Up to Work study, funded by the American Society of Interior Designers Foundation, is a collaborative project of the Center for Active Design, Perkins+Will, Steelcase, and Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. Stand Up to Work evaluates behavior changes in office workers who receive adjustable workstations that allow them to shift between standing and sitting, compared to workers with standard desks. This project represents an important contribution to the growing research base on the health and wellness impacts of Active Design elements in workplace settings.
Progress to date:
Stay tuned! Project partners look forward to publishing study findings in the coming months.
