This Desk Will Tell You When To Sit And When To Stand

Standing is better than sitting. Most of the time. Sometimes your body needs a rest and that’s where the Humanscale OfficeIQ powered by Tome comes to play.

Tome’s Jack Sigal stopped by the TechCrunch broadcast booth to show me how this desk can help me lose weight. Software and hardware developed by his new company is built into the Humanscale desk and chair and will send notifications to the user about the optimal work position.

Sometimes it’s better to stand and sometimes it’s better to sit. The desk will even help the user properly adjust to the best height.

Co-founders Jake Sigal and Massimo Baldini founded Tome after selling their last startup, Livio, to Ford Motor Company in 2013. Sigal tells me Livio is still going strong and found a great partner in Ford.
