I came across this story today (thanks to my brother-in-law for sharing), and realized its worthwhile to share.
A woman experiencing backpain worked with her doctor to determine the back pain was from sitting for extended hours at the computer. Their solution: a standing workstation. She worked to find the optimal height for herself, ignored the $300 price tags for other 'standing workstations' and found her own solution for $20. Ingenuity at its finest.
