If you need to sit down a lot during your working day and are concerned that it might be affecting your health, you might be interested in a new balance board which has been created for the workplace called the Level Deck.
The Level has been third-party testing by Heeluxe Labs who have found the use of the Level Deck is able to increase your heart rate by 12.2 bpm, when compared to a seated position. Watch the video below to learn more about the health benefits of using the Level to help your body stay in motion during the working day.
“The Level works on most floors including carpet, wood, tile and concrete floors. We recommend a protective mat or surface be placed in-between the Level and floor to protect the floor from the constant motion of the Level (similar to what you’d see from a rolling chair in a similar work area). FluidStance customized mats will be available in late March. In the interim, you can use chair mats or welcome mats as a temporary solution.
The Founder and CEO of FLUIDSTANCE, Joel Heath, is an individual dedicated to helping people work hard and play hard throughout the breadth of his career. Joel was formerly the Brand President of Teva footwear and founded one of the most successful outdoor-adventure events in the country, the [GoPro] Mountain Games. Joel’s passion for movement extends to volunteer work as well, as Co-Founder of First Descents, a free adventure experience for young adults with cancer.
Validated by third party testing, our motion decks elicit subtle, constant movement under your feet. This is accomplished through our U.S. Patent-Pending technology that allows for optimal amounts of 3D motion in the sagittal, transverse, and coronal planes. The amount of lower leg motion provided by LEVEL is similar to what you would experience while walking. On the Level, we see an average range of motion of 23.98 degrees (ROM). While standing at a desk doesn’t allow for this range of motion, the Level does.”
The Level project is currently over on the Indiegogo crowd funding website looking to raise $40,000 in pledges to make the jump from concept to production.
