I have been a standing desk enthusiast for countless years now, and I’ve probably gone through at least a dozen standing mats. Most have just been padded, but a few had massage balls and ramps to help keep your feet and leges more active. This IRONCK 360 Degree Balance Board and Standing Desk Mat is the first I’ve used that I can recall that presents a non-stable standing platform, similar to the balance ball chairs I used before going full-time to standing desks.
The IRONCK is attractive and well-constructed, with a sufficiently wide 21 inch platform. On the underside is a PVC non-slip bottom and on top is bumped PVC leather. Sandwiched in-between is PU foam and plywood, which provide decent cushioning and bounce.
A product like this is definitely for standing desk veterans and fitness enthusiasts. Upon first and early usage, you’ll likely fatigue fairly quickly in your glutes and feet and then eventually in your core as you strive to maintain balance and have your feet work against the surface bumps. Over time, you’ll definitely build up resistance and tolerance, but this is not really a product to replace a standard stationary padded standing desk mat (I like this one) full-time. If you understand the limitations, this is a wonderful addition to a standing desk setup and an overall healthier life.
