Fluidstance Product Review

(pin this image)

This review was conducted on The Plane – Cloud from Fluidstance. It is made from recycled materials with a soft cushion top and can be seen below.

FluidStance balance boards engage you in natural movement while working at a standing desk, watching TV, and doing other stationary activities.

Our experience

We found that the Fluidstance deck that we received was incredibly durable and one of the best incorporation’s to our business busy lifestyle. As most working professionals know, all you want to be is comfortable when you start your day at work, at home, or anywhere that requires you to remain in one place for any significant amount of time.

What we loved about our deck was that it allowed us to remove ourselves from unhealthy positions like sitting where our muscles become inactive – and instead became constantly engaged at all times on the deck.

“Sit less, move more” is what the American Heart Association encourages all of us to do. 

It has even been reported that long bouts of sitting can ultimately lead to early death, but how can this be?

The physical activity guidelines for adults state that individuals should be getting in moderate-intensity aerobic exercise for two hours and 30 minutes every week, plus muscle strengthening activities on two or more days a week.

Keith Diaz, associate research scientist in the Columbia University Department of Medicine has proposed this idea for individuals who find themselves sitting for long periods of time i.e working professionals…

‘For every 30 consecutive minutes of sitting, stand up and move/walk for five minutes at brisk pace to reduce the health risks from sitting,’

In doing so, Diaz and his colleagues believe that individuals can edge their way closer to the minimum exercise requirements.

So perhaps you are under the assumption that your prolonged sitting is not adversely affecting you. Diaz and his colleagues hypothesize that prolonged sitting might actually  interfere with glucose regulation—encouraging a pathological transformation in muscle tissue that may have parallels to diabetes: “The muscles stop working like they’re supposed to and they stop taking up glucose like they’re supposed to,” he says.

This takes us back to the incredible value behind Fluidstance. The message is clear that our health depends on our movement, and in situations where we do not have the opportunity to freely walk about the office or outside, Fluidstance decks are an incredible alternative.

Standing desks were a great solution to the problem, however, Fluidstance has taken it one step further by creating a deck that fully engages the muscles and keeps your blood circulating, increases energy expenditure by 19.2% and  increased heart rate by 15% versus the same population sitting at a desk.

Positives

  1. Great alternative to edge closer to the physical activity guidelines for adults.
  2. Increases energy expenditure by 19.2% compared to sitting.
  3. Increases heart rate by 15% versus the same population sitting at a desk.
  4. FluidStance decks enable movement in any environment. On the FluidStance deck, there is an average range of motion of 23.98 degrees—a clear increase over what we experience while standing in place.
  5. There is no statistical difference in the amount of typing errors that someone makes standing on a FluidStance deck compared to the same person in a seated environment.

Negatives

The decks themselves are going to range anywhere from $189-$489. This is a steep initial cost for the product itself however, if you work a typical 8 hour job, 40 hours a week and there are 52 working weeks in a year, you are spending roughly 2,080 hours a year at a desk. At around 260 days worked a year, that means that even if you purchased the most expensive deck at $489, you would be spending barely $1.88 a day on a device that could revolutionize your health, productivity and creativity. When you look at it from that angle, the price seems almost too low.
