About this project
Burn up to 32% more calories standing when adding one 2-minute at-desk cardio break each hour on your Wurf™ Board. (An average of 672 extra calories burned every four hours.)
Giving Back: For every ten Wurf Boards we sell, we will be giving one to a school.
Testimonials from our Early Adopters
Why is Wurf more costly than other inflatables?
The Wurf Board’s drop-stitch construction is radically different from typical inflatable toys or air mattresses. High-end inflatable paddle boards are made using similar drop-stitch construction, but Wurf Boards are used on hard surfaces and not on the water, so we had to re-engineer our drop-stitch to achieve higher strength and durability. Equalizing the size, Wurf Boards are built better, but priced lower.
The Problem- Standing desks don't encourage movement by themselves.
Studies show prolonged standing without significant movement isn’t healthy and lowers energy and productivity.
The Solution- The Wurf Board is a highly supportive, lively, air-spring surface that encourages standing desk users to make continuous micro movements, which improves blood-flow so you can stand comfortably much longer. These subtle movements improve posture; strengthen feet, legs, core, and back; and raise alertness, focus, and productivity. Who doesn't want that throughout their workday?
- 2” high curved edge massages feet arches and permits lower-leg stretches.
- Lightweight (3 lbs.), easy to slide in and out with your feet when switching between standing and sitting, especially helpful for people who have difficulty bending over.
- Fully adjustable air-spring surface, firm or bouncy, to meet your weight and performance needs. (Max. user, Sm: 180 lbs., Med: 220 lbs., Lg: 250 lbs.)
- Non-slip dimpled design, grips all types of flooring when weight is applied to it.
- Use with or without shoes (no stiletto heels).
Risks and challenges
Even though this is our first Kickstarter campaign, JumpSport has been designing and building quality trampolines for over 18 years. All of our large backyard and small fitness trampolines are highly rated on both Amazon and Costco. We are an international company with distribution all over the world.
We are a family business that's just as passionate today about creating beautifully designed products, that are built to last, as we were when we started in 1996. We love taking care of our customers and very much appreciate hearing all feedback. Stuff happens, but we have a long track record of working-on, through difficulties, until we find the right solutions, with the goal of not just satisfying, but pleasing our customers.
We have been designing, engineering, building, testing, and reengineering prototypes for over a year now, so we’re excited to finally be able to offer such a healthy, safe, and playful product. The Wurf board will bring a smile to every office worker that steps on one, and increase their focus, energy, and creativity.
You have our promise that if there is any unexpected delay in getting your product shipped, you will be immediately notified and updated until it's under your feet!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
