Missing Workouts? Problem Solved – Exercise At Your Desk



Man talking on phone.

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:

  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • Cancer

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

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

One Easy Solution

Stir Kinetic Desk helps promote physical activity with the special software designed to make workers get up and sit down multiple times during the day.

The height of the desk can be modified manually, but for those who wish complete automation the computer can do this at regular intervals.

When the workday is over, the desk displays the number of calories lost during the working hours.

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.

Stir Kinetic Desk Inspires 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.

The increase in physical activity can be very beneficial for both the employees and the employer. Healthy people in the company always mean better productivity and quality of work.

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