Think about your typical day for a moment. How many hours do you spend sitting at your desk? Our desk has become the center of our work and we started sitting more than ever before. As more jobs become desk based or sedentary, people have stopped moving and spending long periods of time sitting. Researchers have linked sitting to many medical conditions.
Research also show that when you've been sitting for a long period of time and then get up, a number of molecular cascades occur. For example, within 90 seconds of standing up, the muscular and cellular systems that process blood sugar, triglycerides, and cholesterol—which are mediated by insulin—are activated.
All of these molecular effects are activated simply by carrying your own bodyweight. These cellular mechanisms are also responsible for pushing fuel into your cells and, if done regularly, will radically decrease your risk of diabetes and obesity. What are you waiting for?
Researchers found that standing for a few hours each day over the course of a year has massive benefits equivalent to running 10 marathons, and shedding 8lbs of fat. That’s 30,000+ calories over the course of a year!
As workforces become increasingly blended with a
range of full-time, part-time, contract, and remote
workers, many companies are looking to unassigned
workstations to maximize their office space. A
workspace equipped with Smart Sit-and-Stand Desks
allows users to access their preprogrammed
preferences no matter which desk they choose.
By simply tapping a smartphone to the Smart Sit and Stand Desk, the desk automatically adjusts to the user’s preprogrammed height and sit and stand settings.
The brain of the Smart Sit-and-Stand Desk is our patent pending Smart Desk Controller with CPU, memory, and wireless communication capabilities. It identifies users through their smartphone, key fob, or a QR code.Their preferences and health vitals are then transmitted via remote server to the Performance Database, where they are logged and accessible for ongoing performance reporting.
User's performance data saved while using our Workspace Fitness® Devices is uploaded to our Cloud Environment Services from which our dedicated software or third-party software can access such data through cellphones, tablets, laptops or other smart devices.
The Smart Sit-and-Stand Desk can connect to an array of peripherals including our Smart Under-the-Desk Bike, allowing users to record miles while logged on.
Built-in Smart Desk Controller
Wireless connectivity to Workspace Fitness Devices
No buttons or display
Embedded surface touch sensitive control panel
Reminds, motivates, facilitates and, if desired, forces alternating between sitting and standing
Patent pending off-the-grid operation (when Wi-Fi is not available)
Smartphone controllable via our Ergonomyx App
Technologies that enable users to gain better health while improving focus and concentration.
For companies looking at ways to provide their employees with an optimal work environment. Our solution allows office workers to maximize hours and days spent behind the desk.
The market for open plan workstations and co-working spaces is rapidly growing as workforces become increasingly blended with a range of full time, part-time, contract, and remote workers. Companies looking at unassigned workstations to make the most of their space can equip their offices with our solution. Users have the ability to access their pre-programmed preferences no matter which desk they choose, thereby solving a problem for the workplace manager or owner.
