Description

As standing up becomes more common in the workplace, office workers are now facing new troubles: standing fatigue. Just as sitting all day is bad for your health, so it standing statically. That is where the Active Office Board comes in: by simply adjusting the platform you can subtly adjust movement in the board. By changing the position of the foam legs, you not only provide cushioning for your feet, ankles, knees and legs, you build balance and stabilizing muscles.

Features & Benefits

  • Fully adjustable - each user can customize their experience
  • Brings movement into a regularly static workday
  • Silent, non-marking legs provide cushioning while standing
  • Canadian made
  • Patent Pending

More Energy
I have a history of lower back pain and have focused on core strengthening to help protect my back. As part of this program I use a standing desk but have found that standing in one spot is fatiguing. Adding the Active Office Board has made standing way more enjoyable, helps to work my core and helps me end each day feeling more alert and energized.

I adore this
I purchased this some time ago. I have progressed from beginner foam position, all the way down to advanced. I work 12 hour shifts and I spend approximately 10 on my board. I work on a concrete floor. I was pretty fatigued after just a few moments before this board!I have had previous hip issues, which caused me to purchase the board. I am so glad that I did. Sitting was causing neck and back pain, so I chose this board as a solution. I am happy and completely satisfied that I have. Pain has subsided in neck/back, and hips feel great; as I have strengthened everything from the foam leg placement!! Excellent. My only minor complaint is that the foam legs do compress substantially. Game changer though!

Saved my knees to travel around Scottland!
When I work at the computer I tend to be so focused on what I am doing that many hours later realize that I should have stopped and moved around. My back hurts....and either sharp pain in my legs or and/or an aching numbness in my legs. BUT When I stand and work I use the Active Office balance board (I like to dance to music while I am on the board). The stretching of my calves has helped the overall health of my legs that has suffered since I had both knees replaced. The Active office balance board has given me back good balance that disappeared with the work on my knees. When my balance was bad I lost confidence and slowly quit doing many physical things for fear of falling. With this sit stand desk and Active Office board I have the younger and healthier me back and I can work for hours!!!

Like This Board, but . .
I use the Active Office Board all day at work, and really enjoy it. The only downside is the fact the pads/legs are already half their original height, after about four weeks of use. I'm not a heavy person, but am on the board at least eight hours each work day, so maybe that's to be expected. However, I would prefer pads that have a bit more longevity.

Reply From Fitterfirst: We are sorry to hear about your Active Office Board Legs compressing so quickly Matthew. While it is natural that the legs will compress over time, this does seem to be at an above-average rate. We will be sending you a replacement pack as soon as possible.

Fun and very useful
Excellent to use to engage core and make standing not quite as tough on your feet and knees. Highly recommended.

Love this board!
The thing I like about this board is that it is soft enough to help in joint/foot support if standing, but also allows for motion. The fact that the pads are adjustable is a great addition as well. I would highly recommend this board to anyone!

    Designed to Move

    By: Joan Vernikos, PhD, author of “Sitting Kills - Moving Heals” & former director of NASA’s Life Sciences Division



    My job at NASA was about keeping astronauts in space healthy and safe. While learning how astronauts live and work in the microgravity of space, I came to look at Earth’s gravity with a great deal more respect. Gravity is that force we live with yet consistently ignore.

    The first thing astronauts notice in space is that there is no up or down and that you are suddenly unloaded. The first thing they feel when they land back on Earth’s gravity is that everything feels heavy and they are unsteady on their feet. Even days later, balance and coordination are seriously affected and much like a baby they need to stand with feet wide apart to keep their balance.

    Balance is also the first thing that deteriorates here on Earth soon after you reach peak development at about 20 and you begin on your downward slope called aging. You do not need to be 80 before your balance is affected. It happens a lot sooner and much faster if you spend a lot of hours each day sitting.

    What can you do? First become aware that you are moving less than you used to. The best kind of movement to correct this condition is to stimulate your balance organs in your inner ears by changing posture often, by dressing standing up, skipping rope, swinging on a swing, skiing, surfing or rollerblading. If you are beyond that, get yourself an Active Office Board. There are many forms of boards you can stand and sway on and they all help your balance. In my experience none match the ingenuity and versatility of the Active Office Board. Velcro attaches square foam blocks to choose the position where you feel safest; gradually move them around to increase the challenge. Its simplicity makes it usable for a few minutes every time you stand so that you can make it a habit. If you use a stand-up desk use the board to stand on. I found it useful even under the desk to rock my feet forward and back, stretching my calves and feet. You can play around and find your own best way to use it all day. Just keep moving.
