At MOVI we imagine a world where going to work
makes you feel better. With foundations in health
science and research, we’re here to change the
way people work at their desks.
A 2016 research study indicated standing desks could increase productivity by up to 53%.
Working below capacity costs businesses 6.5 working days per employee annually.
Healthy employees only take 2 days of sick leave annually, unhealthy employees take 18.
Reduced Disease Risk
Spending 11+ hours per day sitting increases your risk of disease by as much as 147%.
“We are designed to be active. Humans developed to walk and move on two limbs, standing upright; many don’t realise just how unnatural sitting is.”
Dr. David Oehme MBBS(Hons) PhD FRACS
MOVI is recommended and used by Melbourne based Neurosurgeon
and Spine Surgeon, Dr. David Oehme. Extensively trained in the

Standing and moving during your work day can eliminate serious health risks from prolonged sitting and improve your health and productivity.
Change it up.
When using MOVI we recommend that
you switch between sitting and standing
often, take a seat when you’re tired,
check your posture, and get up and
move around when you can.
Ready to move?
Make your workday active and stand up
for your health.
