The New Humanscale Float Sit to Stand Table: Height Adjustable without Electricity

As the legendary boxer Mohammad Ali poised the expression “float like a butterfly”; Humanscale the distinguished ergonomics designer and manufacturer has developed a sit to stand table offering its presence as a fierce contender amongst desk producers.

Humanscale Float TableGood things come to those who wait and we are rather impressed with the development of the Float.  This innovative desk’s name emulates the nearly effortlessly adjustment positioning from either sitting to standing.  This is accomplished without electricity, rather it uses a counterbalance mechanism that allows for modification.  The table permits an uncomplicated, one-hand weight adjustment, and constant-force height adjustment for ergonomic sit-stand usage. It is built with safety measures to prevent the possibility of injury―its advanced safety feature only allows adjustment when the desktop and contents are properly balanced. Humanscale Float Desk


Health Advantages:

Height-adjustable desks such as Float are significantly advantageous to an individuals’ health, as it promotes a combination of sitting and standing. Studies indicate that sitting for an extended period of time is a risk that cannot be offset by exercise.  Conversely standing all day is not considered a perfect solution, either, as it can cause discomfort and swelling in the legs and feet. Alternating between sit and stand positions is therefore deemed to be the most effective way to preserve health and comfort.  It allows several body parts to rest in periods, and at the same time discourages static postures.  Humanscale Float Desk Advantages


What makes the Float Distinctive:

A 20-inch range of height adjustability, supports a wide-range of tabletop widths (between 42 and 72 inches).  Its unique counterbalance mechanism handles the widest weight range in the industry—zero to 160 pounds of desktop weight (excluding the tabletop)—without tools, or added parts.  A base only option offers compatibility with tabletops from other manufacturers, and the deliberate lack of the frustrating cross-bar (frequently found under most other height adjustable desks) frees up leg space.  Finish options are available in white, silver, or black.  With its continued effort to limit its carbon footprint, Float is made predominantly of recyclable steel and aluminum and is designed with minimal parts and manufacturing processes.  With a 5-year, 24/7 warranty, this desk is perfect for an individual or multi-shift work force.
