Common FAQ’s about the FluidStance “Plane” balance board
Review summary (what people think about it)
I’ve mentioned this has a hefty price tag but for those that have bought it it’s worth every cent. Customers love it.
I suppose the toughest thing with a standing desk is that you have to…well, stand. This makes standing fun, even a pleasure. It will increase your standing time but will keep leg fatigue in check.
It’s much more comfortable standing on one of these balance boards than standing on a hard floor or carpet. Increase your standing time and you increase all the standing desk benefits. The FluidStance Plane balance board has an excellent grip for your shoes or feet, but it won’t slip around the floor either. If you are looking for a slightly bigger board in this series you might want to consider the Fluidstance “Level” or “Original”.
The board allows you to rotate, fidget and just keep moving all the time. That’s what you want from a standing desk balance board and that is what the FluidStance Plane balance board gives you.
