Daily Talker: Lying Down On The Job

Are you stuck at a desk all day? Numerous studies have shown all that sitting can take a toll on your health, including increasing your risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes and even cancer. You've probably heard of the desks that move to let you stand up while you work at your computer. But now there's another option that will let you lie down on the job.  The Altwork Station was designed for people who spend the majority of their day at their computer. With a press of a button, users can sit, stand, recline or even fully lay down. Everything is attached to your desktop so your work isn't interrupted. Although supporters say this kind of desk could improve your work and your health, it does come at a cost. $5900 that is.

What do you think? Would you like to try a desk that lets you lay down or stand up at work? Do you think it would make a difference to your work or health? Should more companies try to get these for their employees?
