Re: [Histonet] Histology bench ergonomics

From:"Fred Underwood"

The only thing I don't recommend is standing while cutting.  I did this
for years, sometimes 8 hours or more at a time.  Talk about spaghetti

Does anyone have any data or information on bench height for microtomy?
know a lot of people cut at routine lab bench height (36" I think) with
trouble, and some cut at desk high benches (30").  Is there any 
safety/ergonomic guidelines or opinions as to which is better for 
microtomy?  I actually prefer desk height, so I can keep my feet on the

floor - I'm just wondering if there is anything official out there -
looked at a couple of sites, but can't find a lot to support my idea
desk height is better.

Thanks -
