Moving Desk Encourages Ofice Exercise and Improves Productivity



The Stir Kinetic Desk automatically rises and falls to force workers to regularly stand up and stretch their muscles.

Sound annoying? Well, consider this: research has shown that the more you sit, the higher your risk of developing chronic diseases:

  • Diabetes
  • Cancer
  • Heart disease
  • High blood pressure

Prolonged sitting is also responsible for a range of bodily aches and pains including:

  • Back
  • Neck and shoulder pain
  • Disc pressure
  • Carpal tunnel
  • Blood clots
  • Obesity
  • Muscle atrophy
  • Low enzyme production

The solution to all of these problems? Easy!

More physical activity, which the Stir Kinetic Desk encourages, using inbuilt software to move workers from sitting to standing positions throughout the day.

Users can either manually adjust the height of the desk when they want to stand up by double-tapping the screen, or set the computer to automatically raise and lower the table at regular intervals.

At the end of the day, the display shows the user how many calories they’ve burned by performing the simple exercise.

The desk also senses when it’s being used and learns users’ daily routine to improve the effectiveness of its height adjustments. To top things off, integrated AC and USB power outlets to ensure uninterrupted productivity.

How Stir Kinetic Desk Improve Work Productivity

The Stir Kinetic Desk also claims to improve worker productivity – the increased physical activity apparently improves focus and creativity. To top it off, the Desk is WiFi and Bluetooth equipped so that it can be synced to fitness apps.

There’s no doubt that increasing the physical activity of office workers will benefit both the workers and their employers.

How else can offices be configured to induce regular breaks from sitting?
