The Standing Security Desk is Here (Winsted)

Author: Brian Rhodes, Published on May 12, 2016

Sitting is the new smoking, so they say.

But surveillance operators often need to sit for long periods of time, looking at monitors.

Standing desks are a hot trend, seeking to solve that problem. 

Now, Winsted has released a new offering, the Impulse Dual Sit/Stand console that they claim can add years to your life.

Inside, we examine the details, contrast it to lower cost consumer offerings and weigh its pros and cons.
