We put the FluidStance® deck through testing in two separate phases of our development process to ensure the end product is constructive for all parties. Research findings below were conducted via the Heeluxe Testing Lab, a private science center for footwear research and innovation.
Range of Motion (ROM)
There is an obvious increase in the range of motion that someone experiences using our product vs standing in place. On the FluidStance Deck, we see an average range of motion of 23.98 degrees (ROM)*. What this means: the body is meant to move in three dimensions, and our product enables that movement in any environment. Merely standing doesn’t allow for this movement, whereas using the deck does.
On average, we saw a 15% increase** 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).
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.
Work Environment/Task Execution
There is no statistical difference in the amount of typing errors that someone makes standing on our product compared to the same person in a seated environment.
FluidStance currently has four patents. Additional trademarks and patents may be pending in the U.S. and elsewhere. You can visit our Patents page to learn more.
Footnotes: *Observed in third-party testing via Heeluxe Labs **12.2 beats per minute increase observed in third-party testing.
