Why FluidStance Products?

Our Benefits, Explained.

Guided by Research

Research guides our design and development process, whether it's our balance boards, whiteboards, Springboard, or the new product we're tinkering with in the back room.

Over the years our boards have been independently tested by Mayo Clinic, Heeluxe Lab—a biomechanics facility—and several universities. They studied the ergonomics of our decks and found them to be optimal for movement of the human body. And we know from additional research that ergonomically-optimized work setups are healthier for you. Organized, clutter-free desks improve focus and productivity, which is where our OnDesk products like Slope and Raise come in. 

Yes, our products are fun, but they are also functional and help improve your life by delivering results.

Benefits of Using A FluidStance Deck

Get up to speed with the benefits of our standing desk balance boards.

Energy Expenditure

The Level increases energy expenditure by 19.2% compared to sitting—well over the 10% threshold that qualifies a product for NEAT™ certification (NEAT™ stands for the science of Non Exercise Activity Thermogenesis, developed by Mayo Clinic). When using your Level, you’re actively burning calories by allowing for more movement throughout the day.

Heart Rate

On average, we saw a 15% increase in heart rate while on the FluidStance deck versus the same population sitting at a desk. This is with a P<.001 statistical analysis (meaning there is a 99.9% accuracy against the general population).

Range of Motion (ROM)

The body is meant to move in three dimensions, and a FluidStance deck enables that movement in any environment. On the FluidStance deck, we see an average range of motion of 23.98 degrees—a clear increase over what we experience while standing in place.

Optimal Limits

We designed our decks for natural, continual use. Our patented technology maintains reasonable limits of motion—limiting the dorsiflexion (when your toes are above your heels) and plantarflexion (when your heels are above your toes) to levels that are comparable to walking.

Task Execution

When developing our products, our goal was to ensure that nothing would detract from your focus on the task at hand. There is no statistical difference in the amount of typing errors that someone makes standing on a FluidStance deck compared to the same person in a seated environment.

Lower Risk of diseases

Adding small movements to your day can greatly benefit your health such as lowering your risk of heart disease and stroke. Springboard’s flexible wood top keeps your body moving without you even knowing it!

IncreaseD Productivity

Research has shown that decreased sitting showed a significant difference in improving worker’s health and productivity. Incorporating a mix of sitting, standing and movements can be beneficial to your workday.

Eco-friendly materials

Other mats on the market can contain volatile organic compounds (VOC) that offsets gasses in your home affecting long-term health. Springboard is made with 100% all natural materials so you won’t have to worry about indoor air quality.

Stand Comfortably

In a recent study, discomfort and fatigue was associated with standing on hard ground, including soreness in the legs along with pain in the soles of the feet which were greatly improved when using anti-fatigue mats.

Reduce your ecological footprint.

Increased cognitive function

Research has shown that people who have more clutter have poorer “working memory.” While the mind is wired to keep track of a few details at a time, it can get overwhelmed when seeing clutter causing memory issues.

Curtail Workspace Clutter

Disorganization can reduce your ability to focus. A study on the effects of clutter showed that those who cleared clutter from their work environment were able to focus better and in turn, become more productive.

Lower stress and anxiety levels

Unorganized workspaces can create more stress and anxiety but by reducing clutter, you’ll be able to take control of your environment to help you focus with fewer distractions while keeping you productive throughout the day.

Reduce paper usage and paper waste

While our On Desk products help you get organized, it can also help reduce your eco-footprint by eliminating the use of paper notes. Reducing the amount of paper used can save energy and decrease pollution.
