Now That's A Smart Standing Desk


Standing desks are popping up (excuse the pun) everywhere these days, with offices adopting the health craze to improve their company ethos. With many places offering great options like IKEA, not many of them offer connectivity to fitness trackers. But this smart desk will make you work better and healthier. Humanscale's QuickStand and Float products tick all the ergonomic boxes.

These products have been created to encourage users to be active and integrate movement into their days, which is obviously vital to health. And to make this product even more deadly it comes with OfficeIQ, exclusive to Humanscale. OfficeIQ adds special sensors which you can embed into the furniture - as opposed to a wearable device monitor workplace activity, like time spent sitting, standing, and away from the desk.

OfficeIQ is iOS and Android compatible and measures how many calories you are burning while at your desk. The app will then notify you when it thinks its time for you to stand or sit down - making it super handy if like me, you always forget to even move from your desk during the day. Nice one.
