FluidStance

Balance Out

The standing desk balance board wasn’t created in a workday. In fact, it took maker Joel Heath twenty-seven prototypes until the FluidStance hit the spot. Joel was an avid biker, skier, kayaker, and runner, but a change in jobs had him sitting 60-80 hours a week. He realized all that sitting left him physically and emotionally drained. Even a stand-up desk didn’t do the trick, as it took a toll on his hips and knees. Joel took to his garage to tinker with a solution that would play well with standing desks, while promoting non-distracting, stabilizing movement. Tested to perfection by the Mayo Clinic, University of Idaho, and independent testing labs, FluidStance fulfills that function, with a dash of fun thrown in. Made entirely in California, the sturdy decks allows for 360-degrees of movement, which can improve posture, boost productivity, and even increase energy expenditure by 19.2 percent compared to sitting. While giving folks the opportunity to move while working, the team at Fluidstance is also giving back to a cause special to them. Sales proceeds, company equity, and employee time are all donated to First Descents, an organization that provides adventure experiences to young adults with cancer.

Quick Questions

Do I need a standing desk to use a deck?

Using a deck at a standing desk is a great way to introduce more movement into your workspace, but you can take advantage of FluidStance benefits in any environment.

How much height does a deck add?

FluidStance decks add roughly 2.5 to 3 inches of height. If you have a standing workstation, they recommend an adjustable desk to account for the added height. Adding raisers can also be a great way to keep your workstation at an ergonomically optimal height.

How do the various models of FluidStance decks differ?

All the decks are designed to add the same subtle motion to your day. While the functional geometry remains consistent between models, the differences are in materials and manufacturing processes.
The Level® has a base of die-cast aluminum and holds up to 250 pounds.
The Plane starts with a base made from recycled #2 plastic. The top deck consists of soft anti-microbial foam for added cushion.

Do FluidStance decks work on carpet?

Yes, the decks do work on carpet. However, the Makers do recommend using a small chair mat to provide a firmer surface to optimize your flow while using it on carpet.

Will the FluidStance deck damage my hardwood floors?

Decks work on most floors, including carpet, wood, and concrete surfaces. Depending on your level of usage, your deck's powder-coated finish may experience wear and tear over time. They recommend that a protective mat or surface be placed in between the deck and your floor to protect the floor from the constant motion of the deck (not unlike what you'd see from a rolling chair in a similar work area).

Can I stand on my deck all day?

It's important to find the balance between building strength in those small, newly activated muscles and mitigating the healthy fatigue your body feels when it does something new. If you're just beginning to incorporate a deck into your routine, they recommend beginning with a 70:20:10 breakdown (continuing to spend 70% of your day sitting, standing on your deck for 20% of the day, and taking the remaining 10% to engage in real-life movement) and progressing toward an even balance between sitting and standing. For those of you who are already accustomed to standing for longer periods of time, just integrate the deck into your usual routine to begin benefiting from the flow.
