“I endorse the StandingSteps™ Trainer heartily. I have been using the StandingSteps™ Trainer for several weeks and already have found that it improves circulation to my lower body, especially the calf muscles which no longer devil me with nocturnal claudication (spasm during sleep). Additional benefits so far include: better balance, and remarkable stability of my weight at a lower set point.
I have been recommending this to everyone I know, and several people have acquired this exercise device, some of them sedentary and some who exercise regularly.”

Better Standing Company, Inc. has a simple, comfortable, and effective physical activity that is needed today in workplaces, as well as in homes. Skillful walking movements, ‘Skilling’ involving legs, hips and torso skeletal muscle ‘pumps’. Walking movements are made really easier on our comfortable StandingSteps™ trainer. How? While standing, a majority of body weight is supported on our hips. Walking movements involve use of our hips in shifting our weight from leg to leg. Bending the leg receiving weight simply helps your hips (working with gravity) to transfer weight down into the bending leg. You are lowering most of your body weight with help from gravity! And this is easier than just standing with that weight opposing gravity! Let it down and our StandingSteps trainer helps you get that weight back up again by helping you straighten your leg after bending it. You do not need to lift either foot or either heel so there are no distractions of (un)balancing body weight.
The trainer platform is spring-loaded and constructed to obtain the marvelous mechanical advantage over gravity forces that the evolutionary design of our lower torso, hips and legs uses in walking! As it assists body weight to rise again (helping you to straighten your leg), your hips transfer body weight onto your other leg as it bends. This may sound complicated, but skillful walking (and running) minimizes impacts by bending your leading leg as your hips work with gravity to lower body weight. Be a better walker or runner by practicing comfortable StandingSteps activity!
StandingSteps activity, or as we like to call it, Skilling requires little or none of your attention to turn it on and leave it on! More active users will want to go for miles and miles and miles… Better than digits on your activity tracker, are strokes of the muscle circulatory pumps running in your legs, hips, back and abdomen muscles. Stronger strokes, gently strengthened by daily StandingSteps activity!
The portable platform weighs less than five pounds so it is always ready where and when you are. Workouts while working! The trailhead is always at your feet, it doesn’t move, you can move! At the end of your workday you can have more physical and mental resilience, and you will likely be more responsive throughout the day to the demands of your workplace, your coworkers and to serving your customers. It’s all yours, wherever you like to stand!
The cost per user is currently $99 and includes shipping in the continental US, and includes one StandingSteps platform. Group discounts are available!
