What is Float?
Float is a next-generation, height-adjustable, sit-to-stand table that virtually “floats” to the desired height to accommodate work in both sitting and standing postures.
What are the ergonomic benefits?
Recent research shows that sedentary work increases the risks of cancer and heart disease,
regardless of other health indicators, such as exercise and nutrition. However, standing all day at work isn’t a realistic option for most people, as that can cause discomfort and swelling in the legs and feet. Therefore, the healthiest workplace solution combines the best of both worlds to allow users to alternate between sitting and standing positions throughout the day
How is Float different?
Currently, most height-adjustable work surfaces are either adjusted by a hand crank, which requires tremendous time and effort to move from one position to another, or by electric motors, which are extremely expensive and energy-inefficient, as they constantly use electricity. By contrast, Float uses an innovative adjustable counter-balance mechanism featuring constant force technology that enables immediate and effortless, single-handed height adjustment. In addition, unlike any other height-adjustable work surface on the market, Float is built with a unique safety feature that only allows up or down adjustment when the desktop and contents are properly balanced.
