This standing desk balance board is made to keep your body as alert as your mind by encouraging 360-degrees of non-distracting micro-movements. This subtle activity can increase energy expenditure and improve posture, help strengthen your core, make you feel awake, and even burn calories. Made in California with non-microbial foam deck and recycled plastic skeleton base.
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.
