Standing is an upright human posture in which the body is supported only by the feet. Often misunderstood as a static position, standing is actually a form of dynamic balance where the center of the body is supported by rocking on the front of the ankle. Standing erect requires a high degree of coordination and control of a persons nervous system and core muscles to maintain stability. The average age in which humans begin to stand is between 8-12 months. Standing is believed to have beneficial cognitive and health impacts and many workplaces are now offering standing desks as a desk option.
