It is no mystery that sitting for the larger part of the day can be detrimental to a person’s long-term health. However, with more and more careers requiring employees to sit at a desk for eight hours or more, sitting seems inevitable. While standing desks and even treadmill desks have been proposed by health professionals, space and funding make these limited options for most offices.
Now, start-up Cubii is sizing down the options of active desks by developing its eponymous device– a compact elliptical trainer. The device fits under a standard desk and is designed in a way that will not cause the user’s knees to bang against the underside of the desk. the Cubii also comes with an accompanying app to keep users accountable and allows them to track their progress.
Initial cost via Kickstarter was $279 and is now $299 and ships in January.
