The Stir Kinetic Desk Wants To Move You And Move With You While You Work

If you get restless while you work, sitting at a desk all day in stiff position, you’re not alone. The creators of the Stir Kinetic Desk felt the same way, so they invented a sit/stand workstation that actually moves with you as you work.

“Human beings were made to move – we all feel better after we move around, right?” The Stir Kinetic Desk website reads.

There are many studies proving this to be true. But we don’t just need to move to be thinner or to be better at a sport. We need to move to create ideas and to live more fully. So, it stands to reason that sitting at a desk for 6, 8 or maybe 10 hours a day can’t be good for us.”

Integrated with smart software, the Stir Kinetic Desk is made to learn your sitting and standing patterns throughout the workday with a sensor and automatically adjusts to them. The desk is built with a touch screen control panel, which you can double-tap to have the desk move from one position to another. In “Active Mode,” the Stir Kinetic Desk will offer you a reminder to move with a gentle rise and fall movement called “Whisper Breath.”

Productivity is also built right in, with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth integration and a place for all your cables and cords to plug in and be hidden away. Because the creators of the Stir Kinetic Desk wanted to emphasize the user’s health and fitness, a calorie counter is also among its other built-in features—so you can even track how many extra calories you’re burning from changing positions.

The Stir Kinetic Desk sells for $3,890 and ships to the continental United States.
