Fluidstance Level 4.5

Many of us spend most of our working days in front of a desk, unsurprisingly sitting in a desk chair isn’t the most body friendly thing for extended periods of time and quite a few people are now moving towards standing desks even if it is just for part of the day. To take it one step further Fluidstance have created a balance board to get your body moving whilst you work, we received the Level in a Walnut finish to take a closer look at. The Level has been designed to keep your body working on your natural micro-movements to strengthen and stabilise your body, we aren’t talking about attempting circus tricks whilst your type is very gentle.

These movements keep your joints fluid, burn extra calories, and keep you focused and alert, no more groaning and aching when you get up from the desk. The Level measures up a 26.5″ L x 12.2″ W x 2.5″ H like a slightly thicker skateboard, the die-cast aluminium base is 0.19” thick with an arch like profile that keeps you moving. The whole thing weighs 7lbs, 12oz about as heavy as a small cat according to Fluidstance who get bonus points for using cats as a unit of measurement, the glossy wood finish compliments any office space and is easy to wipe clean of footprints. The board comes with a canvas bag with two shoulder straps that makes it easy and comfortable to take to the office, there are even a couple of extra pockets to sort essentials like your keys and snacks.

As a natural born fidgeter I loved this board, anyone who has seen me dance knows my legs do their own thing most of the time and it was great to keep them busy. It stopped me shifting about so much whilst I work and unexpectedly, I felt like I was more focused on what I was doing, that was after the initial 5mins pretending I was shredding the slopes on a snowboard, a great investment for anyone with a standing desk.
