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 this simple 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

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.

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!

A step above
I have been using the anti fatigue mat with my standing desk up until now and if I stood in one spot for a while my back would start to hurt. With the Active Office Board, I can stand longer without any hurt and love the options to mix up the balancing challenge.

Great Product
The board serves its purpose very well and the quality is very good, I have tried different settings and I like some much better than others. I have two comments: I am 170cm high and I need to put my varidesk at its highest to be on good posture (may be an issue for tall people) I'd love to se some sort of grid or markers to place the foam pads precisely. I may do those myself.

Great therapy board!
I just want to say that this board is awesome! The name does not do it justice. as I am not sure I would have the time to be standing on this in an office. I had a stroke in 2013 that has left me with balance issues. I love the different configurations you can do with the blocks under the board. From beginner to advanced, this will keep me busy balancing for many years to come! Plus it is made in Canada? Well it doesn't get better than that! I love my AOB!

Perfect for home and office!
Saw this at a Home Exposition, really liked it and ordered right away. I have not used extensively yet I am very happy with it so far. I have used in in the office while sorting through papers. The different configurations for levels of difficulty will be perfect to challenge & help me maintain good balance. It is well made and will last for many years. I highly recommend to anyone as it will work for the beginner to advanced. Thanks Fitterfirst for another great affordable product!!

    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.
