Four stylish, high-tech work gadgets for your office

We love these nifty gadgets that make office life so much better.

For working the core
This balance board will help you stand for longer periods at your standing desk. Its controlled see-saw motion activates your core muscles and trains your balance, while improving circulation. Locating the board’s balance point is easy, so don’t worry about falling off.

For active sitting
If you’re not ready to switch to a standing desk, consider this Wobble Stool. It features a 360-degree swivelling saddle seat and a curved, weighted base, enabling you to tilt it in every direction. Your leg and core muscles will be constantly engaged while you’re on the stool – great for burning extra calories!
