I have not tried it but it certainly could be done.  I have seen a number of
mobile carts in newer hospitals that have a keyboad tray, Monitory swing arm
etc.  They were designed to used while standing.  I would also want at nice
rubber mat to stand on.

Good luck!  Back problems are no fun.

Has anyone ever built a stand-up operating desk for contesting?  I have a
pinched nerve in my back which gets very sore if I adopt my usual
"contester's crouch" for any period of time.  I find it is much better if I
stand up, which inspires me to wonder if, short of surgery, I could try
operating contests standing, at least part of the time.
