The Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) reports musculoskeletal disorder injuries (MSDs) as the nation's number one work place health problem. Countless studies on ergonomics have documented the skeletal trauma incurred from standing for long periods of time (static loading) which can lead to debilitating skeletal conditions, reduced focus, lower moral and decreased productivity. As evidenced in these studies, MSDs resulting from prolonged standing in the work place present not only a significant challenge to our health system in economic terms (worker's compensation claims total in the billions annually), but also place a significant burden upon the safety and health of the individual worker in the healthcare environment.
