    Standing desks. Love ‘em or hate ‘em, there are plenty of articles to back up whatever opinion you have.

    On one hand, studies have shown that standing desks could help reduce your risk of obesity and diabetes (糖尿病). On the other hand, experts have said standing desks don’t help with weight loss and could give you back problems.

    Now, another study has come out, this one in favor of standing desks. Researchers at the Texas A&M Health Science Center found that standing desks helped employees get more done during the day. Though the results might not translate for all types of work environments, they should give standing desk supporters a reason to be pleased.

    Published last week in the journal IIE Transactions on Occupational Ergonomics and Human Factors, the study followed 167 employees in a call center over six months. Seventy-four of them used standing desks, and researchers found that they were 46% more productive than those who sat at their desks.

    The participants’ employer, a health services company that’s not named in the paper, sponsored the study to better understand the returns on the standing desks it had bought for the office.

    Productivity was determined by the number of successful calls to clients that the health and clinical advisors made per hour. The company earned money for each successful call, during which an advisor checked in on a client’s progress in an exercise program, for example, or checked to see that a client was taking proper medication.

    Employees typically made between 400 and 500 calls a month, and the company wanted them to average around two successful calls each hour. Those who had standing desks met that quota, while those who remained seated averaged 1.5 successful calls per hour, Gregory Garrett, a public health doctoral student and lead author on the study, told The Huffington Post. If an advisor was unable to reach a client over the phone, that was counted as an unsuccessful call.

    Interestingly, the people who stood actually made more phone calls than the ones who sat, Garrett said. The results almost seem too good to be true — after all, who wouldn’t want a nearly 50 percent boost in productivity just from using a standing desk?

    “How do you prove ‘this desk makes me feel happier, and I feel better’? That’s not going to pay the bills,” Garrett said.

    But, he continued, the study shows that standing desks can in fact “affect a company’s performance. That’s really significant.”

    32. According to the passage, standing desks could result in _______.

    34. It can be concluded from the passage that standing desks _______.

    A. are worthy of much further research         B. can be used in all work environments

    C. can help create a boost in productivity       D. are more comfortable than normal desks
