Locus Workstation by Focal Upright
Your desk is killing you! Sound dramatic? It is. “Sitting disease” is considered an epidemic in our country. Between commuting, sitting all day at work and then sitting at home, there are some very tangible, adverse effects on a person’s health. Mounting evidence suggests that those who spend hours with little movement are at higher risk for developing blood clots, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and other maladies fueled by insufficient physical activity. So, what can you do to prevent it? It’s actually pretty simple. If you make a conscious effort to make small movements throughout the day – it will lead to better health.
Enter the Locus workstation from Focal Upright where you never actually sit. Instead, you stay in a posture halfway between sitting and standing. It’s really a “lean”, more than anything. It was designed to move with you, encourage active engagement, and allow your creative juices to flow. The seat post pivots at the base, so your core and legs are engaged to stabilize your body. And the desk height adjusts via a crank so that your arms and upper body are in the perfect position. Everything is adjustable with this versatile workstation, so it fits medium size people like me, and tall people like my husband.
Focal’s Locus Workstation is revolutionary in that it challenges traditional ergonomic wisdom and actually works with your body.
