I know of at least one trading firm who tried that general idea. Build 
the trading terminals so that the electronic guys who normally sit for 
6-7 hours a day stand to do their trading. It helped quite a few 
maintain focus. Perhaps you could take a hybrid approach, I know there 
are some desks out there which will allow you to transform from a 
sitting position to a standing position quite easily. The URL for the 
one in particular that I saw escapes me now and I'm not at my main 
computer with all the links.

I was thinking of the same idea for myself (to increase focus, not for 
back issues though)
