Exhibitor Spotlight – Active Office Equipment from Fitter International

February 15, 2016

LAS VEGAS – Beyond the traditional realm of home medical equipment, Fitter International (Booth #448) will be showing off its “active office” equipment at this year’s Medtrade Spring, scheduled for Feb 29-March 2 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas.  

Items such as the new standing platform from Fitterfirst are transforming the everyday office, using adjustable and affordable Active Office Board design to foster dynamic movement to energize sit-stand desk users.

While standing is becoming more common in the workplace, Fitterfirst realizes there is more to creating an Active Office than just simply leaving the chair. Fluid movement around good posture, coupled with steady stimulation throughout the day, can improve focus and productivity while avoiding aches and stiffness typical of simply standing in one spot.

The idea of subtle movement throughout the day has been a focus of Dr. Joan Vernikos, former director of NASA’s Life Sciences Division and author of Sitting Kills, Moving Heals. Vernikos completed extensive research during her 40 years at NASA, discovering that movement that resists gravity, such as static standing, is critical to healthy aging.

With the new Active Office Board, users are able to shift weight, stretch their legs, and introduce a whole new level of subtle movement to their day. The introduction of this subtle motion engages different stabilizer muscles while helping the body and mind to work in unison to promote greater alertness and productivity.

“The key concept is movement—don’t sit all day, but don’t stand all day either,” says Louis Stack, founder of Fitterfirst. “That is why the Active Office Board is such a game-changing product. Featuring adjustable foam legs, users can add or limit movement of the board to suit their preferences, task, and ability throughout the day. Don’t feel like standing any more? Use the Active Office Board as a foot rest to keep your legs and feet tapping and moving.”
