Health Benefits

The Indo Board is perfect for Standup Desks, Sports Training,

Gaming Systems or Kinetic Classroom activities and has been

successful with Physical Therapy and Physical Education for years.

Placing an Indo Board deck on top of the IndoFLO Cushion creates

an unstable surface that immediately puts the user in motion,

which quickly activates the muscles of the core and lower body,

thus increasing the user’s heart rate. The American Medical Association

recognizes sitting for long periods of time can be detrimental to

personal health and recommends standing work places and for

schools to offer alternatives to sitting.

According to Smithsonian Magazine, some of the benefits of a standing

workstation includes reduced risk of obesity, type 2 diabetes, heart

disease and some forms of cancer.

There have also been interesting studies on the impact of standing

up in the classroom. A study conducted by Texas A&M University

found, with the implementation of standing desks, all students

showed an increase in focus, while children with ADHD showed an

increased attention span, and all children lowered their risk of obesity.

According to Dr. John Buckley, standing 3-4 hours a day at work

can burn up to 750 extra calories in a day, translating to 30,000

extra calories burnt in a year, which is the equivalent of running

ten marathons a year. Source: http://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-24532996

How much sitting can you safely do in a day? In the study,

women who were inactive for 11 or more hours a day fared

the worst, facing a 12% increase in premature death, but even l

lesser amounts of inactive time can cause problems. “Once you’re

sitting for more than 6 to 8 hours a day, that’s not likely to be good for you,

” Dr. Manson says. You want to avoid prolonged sitting and increase

the amount of moderate or vigorous exercise you do each day, she adds.

Sedentary lifestyles increase the risk of cardiovascular disease.

“For people who sit most of the day, their risk of heart attack is

about the same as smoking.” ~ Martha Grogan, Cardiologist, Mayo Clinic.

While standing, you feel a sense of urgency, which causes you to

be focused on the completion of tasks. This works ideally when you’re

working with tasks where you know what the outcome should be,

and it’s just a matter of completing it.

Something about standing keeps me more engaged. My mind

wanders less and for some reason I feel a bit more energized to

work even though in reality my legs are fairly tired. So what gives?

It is a question I’ve been pondering even before I setup my standing desk.

When I was working with a pair of guys who had standing desks I

always found myself more effective standing at their desks.

Standing somehow always seemed to motivate my senses

in some way. –Alan Hendry

If there is a movement toward ergonomic diversity and upright

work in the information age, it will also be a return to the past.

Today, the diligent worker tends to be defined as a person who

puts in long hours crouched in front of a screen. But in the 19th

and early 20th centuries, office workers, like clerks, accountants

and managers, mostly stood. Sitting was slacking. And if you stand

at work today, you join a distinguished lineage — Leonardo da Vinci,

Ben Franklin, and Winston Churchill.

Dr. Nicolai Rotterman

I’m a deep-sea biologist and although I spend some of my time at sea and working on my feet, I spend far more time rooted to my desk on land writing up my research. The switch from the two modes of work can leave my back vulnerable to injury, wich is why I I try to do as much of my desk work on my feet and on my Barefoot Indo Board and Indo FLO®️ Cushion. This keeps my back and core muscles engaged and conditioned and helps me make that transaction from desk to field work without the risk of damage. – Dr. Nicolai Roterman, University of Oxford.

School Benefits

As part of a small but growing movement in northern Wisconsin and

Minnesota that many teachers say is bound to gain popularity elsewhere,

several schools are experimenting with their physical learning environments

by incorporating stand-up workstations in the classroom. Anecdotally, teachers

have reported positive results after freeing their kids from the confines

of “feet flat on the floor” and “no rocking!” — greater attentiveness, fewer

behavioral problems, better posture and more enthusiasm. Kids who are

habitually fidgety or who suffer from attention disorders appear to show

the most improvement, teachers say.
