The Level is a work platform that elicits subtle, constant movement below your feet to increase your range of motion and heart rate. Developed primarily as a tool for your immediate workspace, it can be used in common areas of both the home and office, or as a complement to a stand-up desk. The patent-pending design allows you to change the overall aesthetics via interchangeable top decks, floating bumpers, and base plates.

We've done 90% of the heavy lifting to get the Level into production. As with any new venture, there may be some bumps along the way. Some of our initial risks include manufacturing delays (the tooling process itself) and the size of initial orders. As we're sourcing our materials as close to home as possible, we run the risk of difficulties in the future sourcing of U.S. manufacturers willing to work in smaller quantities.Lucky for us, we're pretty gritty folks, and no strangers to the ups and downs of launching new products. If we hit any of those bumps along the way, you'll be the first to know. We'll inform you with a current status, why it's happening and how we're going to fix it. If at any point you have questions about our risks or challenges, give us a shout - we're happy to talk it through with you.
The Level was tested at two different phases of the development process by the Heeluxe Lab in California under the direction of Dr. Geoffrey Gray.
Will a Level distract me from my work?
The Level works on most floors including carpet, wood, tile and concrete floors. We recommend a protective mat or surface be placed in-between the Level and floor to protect the floor from the constant motion of the Level (similar to what you'd see from a rolling chair in a similar work area). FLUIDSTANCE customized mats will be available in late March. In the interim, you can use chair mats or welcome mats as a temporary solution.
