The AlleyOOP Rocker Board is a stable, omni-directional rocking board with a full 360° arc. Instantly easy to use, the gentle rolling motion provides enough micro-movements to stimulate blood flow in the legs and a wide variety of standing positions that result in a more comfortable standing experience.
You just got a new standing desk, but standing all day can be uncomfortable so you end up sitting more than standing. To address this, we tried every anti-fatigue foam mat under the sun, new-age balance boards, and in 2016, we even designed and successfully launched our air-filled Wurf Board on Kickstarter. While the Wurf Board was, by far, the most cushioned standing desk platform, some of us were intrigued by the idea of a balance board, but didn’t like the distraction and effort required to balance. That’s when we came up with the AlleyOOP Rocker Board.
Static sitting isn’t good; static standing can be just as bad; trying to balance all day can be over-stimulating. The best way to stand and stay productive is to make effortless movements and transitions between a variety of natural stances. With the AlleyOOP Rocker, you fluidly change foot positions, rock and roll with control, and stand comfortably much longer than you ever have before.
The wide bottom provides stability and security while still encouraging you to rock or change foot positions. Ergonomically engineered to only tip as far as your feet can handle, even the most extreme tipped positions won't cause you to slip or lose your balance. Focus on your work, not on survival, like unsteady balance boards. Simply step on and get to work!
The AlleyOOP Rocker has a clear TPU plastic bottom that provides grip for slicker surfaces, like tile. This softer bottom also reduces scuffs and scratches on your floor and board in the event any debris wanders under your board.
The first omni-directional rocking board that encourages you to effortlessly move more and stay focused.

Studies have shown that regular leg movement gently improves posture and blood flow, allowing you to stay comfortable and focused longer. Flexing muscles during even small, rocking movements provide the pumping action for the blood to flow and the lymphatic system to work. As a result you have less fatigue, less posture related pains and more energy—even during the dreaded post lunch slump.
Brilliant coders, weekend warriors, fitness pros, average Joes—this is your chance to break the sitting cycle. Moving throughout your day is the basis for a healthy work environment, but so is productivity. With the stability of the AlleyOOP Rocker, your focus stays on your work and not your feet. Rise up and stand with us in comfort and confidence.

Why We Need Your Help
The design and prototyping of the AlleyOOP Rocker Board is complete, and we can’t wait to get the board out there to change lives! But, there are a few costs we need your help to cover, namely the cost of final tests and modifications to the production process. As soon as the design tweaks are made, our team is ready to produce, pack, and ship to you before Christmas!
Risks and challenges
This is our second Kickstarter campaign—after the first we couldn’t wait to come back! JumpSport has been a trusted designer and manufacturer of quality trampolines for over 20 years. Our status as an international company means we’ve distribution links all over the world.
One point of feedback we are looking for is on color. The manufacturing process is more expensive to stain the entire board, but some people prefer the light color of the natural bottom. When you back this campaign, you will be presented color choices. These choices will help guide us as we determine what the final product offering will be.
Since 1996, our family run business has been passionate about creating beautifully designed products that are built to last. We pride ourself on listening to our customers and finding the best solutions for them. That’s exactly how we came up with the AlleyOOP Rocker Board, and we can’t wait to bring it to offices everywhere!
We will keep you updated on production and shipping every step of the way, and we won’t rest until we’ve gotten you moving on an AlleyOOP Rocker.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
