Kinetic Desk Reminds You to Stand When You’ve Sat Too Long

If you work in an office, you might've heard how important it is to stay active during the day. Remaining sedentary – whether it's in a standing or sitting position – can be bad for your health. The Stir Kinetic Desk helps you get moving with a simple gesture. It adjusts itself up and down to shift between the two positions. You just tell the desk what portion of the day that you want to stand or sit, and it prompts you to do so. When you haven't stood for a while, Stir will remind you by slightly moving the table up and down as you work.

Stir has a built-in touchscreen that allows you to look up statistics, set preferences, and tell it to move. This desk also learns more about you as time goes on. It recognizes your patterns and will prompt you to stand when you're most likely to want to. An account that's linked to your FitBit also keeps track of your preferences, which means that you can move between two different desks without hassle.

Stir founder JP Labrosse likes to call the desk a “non-wearable wearable.” Like a FitBit, it's a product that helps keep you in check by monitoring your daily routine. Being aware of your habits can go a long way in staying healthy. If you're interested in owning a Stir Kinetic Desk, it comes with a price tag of $2,990 and is available in colors black or white.
