  • Is standing to work really better for you? It certainly has health benefits, such as improving your circulation and burning calories.
  • Which are the best standing desks in 2019? You will find plenty of great standing options in our Work Desks category.
  • How can you make standing to work less painful? By standing on the Smart Move Board. This flexible platform keeps your body moving, thus relieving the aches and pains.

As time has passed, scientists have compiled an impressive list of reasons why we shouldn’t sit down all day. While many people prefer to ignore the warnings, some of us have adopted standing desks. Staying upright at work can be challenging, but the health benefits are numerous.

The only real downside of standing to work is the physical side. Static standing is no more natural than constant sitting. After a few hours, your muscles tend to tighten and your posture slumps. The Smart Move Board by Blackroll helps you be more active, thus relieving the aches and pains.

What is a standing desk mat?

Normally speaking, there is little opportunity for movement when you work at a standing desk. By using a standing desk mat, it’s possible to be more active without moving away from your workstation.

The Smart Move Board from Blackroll is a particularly fine example. Made from soft yet durable SmartLite foam, this standing desk mat is like a playground for your feet.

When you step on the ribbed surface, your leg muscles are automatically called into action. This relieves the constant ache from standing and gets the blood pumping. In turn, this loosens your back muscles. The effects extend all the way up to your shoulder, neck and head.

In addition, the Smart Move Board has three built-in rollers. By rotating these with the sole of each foot, you can reduce the ache here as well.

Aside from relieving pain, the Smart Move Board makes standing to work even healthier.

Aside from being good for your body, the Smart Move Board is good for the planet.

This product is made from 100% recyclable material, and it should last for years. SmartLite foam is very durable, meaning you can stand on this mat every day without a problem.

“Sitting means your muscles get less oxygen (not relaxing!) and your blood gets fewer nutrients. (not healthy!) Active standing on the SMART MOVE BOARD increases blood flow, oxygen levels, and engages your muscles in a way that actually reduces aches and pains.” — Dr. Stephen Bui

Standing desks just got way more comfortable

While balance boards provide some of the same features, the Smart Move Board offers a total lower body workout. It’s a great upgrade for anyone who stands at work.

For everyone?

The Smart Move Board works perfectly when you’re wearing sports shoes or just socks. However, you won’t get the full benefits if you have to wear work boots or dress shoes.
