It has become clear that sitting all day, slouched over, is hazardous to peoples health. This inactivity increases risks of heart disease, diabetes, cancer and depression—to the point where experts have labeled this epidemic the sitting disease. MüvFree kinetic desks are now being offered as rewards on Kickstarter with the goal of completing a rocking, zero gravity station called the FLIP, built for active sitting. The concept is to inspire one to go from a sedentary lifestyle to a fit and active one with movement throughout the day. Improving posture and bringing gentle exercise into the flow with technology increases energy, creativity, and productivity.
The flexible stations position computers at eye level, which reduces strain on the spine, neck, and eyes. The innovative designs allow people to experience the benefits of standing, stretching and good posture while staying in the work flow. The contemporary furniture is made in the USA with bamboo and birch and has intricate cut-outs that make them light, easy to hold, and carry.
The Kickstarter rewards:
– Elevates screens for improved posture
– Inspires movement in the workflow
– Accommodates all tablets and laptops
