Humanscale’s eagerly anticipated Float adjustable-height table is sure to make an immediate impact in the sit-stand desk market. Sleek design, easy to use, and affordable are only three of the features we’re excited about from Humanscale’s newest product.
The main feature that makes this adjustable table different from our other popular sit-stand desk options is the way it raises and lowers. The counterbalance mechanism means that no motor or crank is required to move the desk from sitting to standing. If you’ve poked around the blog before, you know that we think effortless hight adjustment is key to getting people moving during the work day, and the Float table definitely meets our standards. Simply squeeze the level and release when you have found a comfortable sitting or standing height. It really couldn’t be easier.

New studies seem to come out weekly touting the benefits of height-adjustable desks. We've linked to several here on the blog, but the thread that ties each new report together is: sitting all day is unhealthy. Not only is it bad for your body to be in one static position for 8+ hours per day, studies have shown that increased physical activity increased mental aquity. Go ahead and copy and paste that sentence to your boss if he or she gives you a hard time about wanting to change out your desk.
