More than the sum of its parts, the Focal Upright Sphere Workstation, together with the Locus or Mobis seat, are really at the vanguard of the Standing Revolution in office ergonomics. As is often the case for radical design, the Focal Upright system was hacked by Martin Keen for himself while he was designing his signature footwear. Knowing he had created a winner, when he sold his shoe company, he launched the Focal Upright Furniture line. This is not a sit to stand desk, but rather a perching to standing desk. Held aloft on a very supportive and comfortable standing support, either the Locus Seat or the newer Mobis, as part of the system, the Focal Upright Sphere Workstation features a variable angle and height adjustable primary surface with non-skid mat that fully supports your forearms at a comfortable angle for computer work. The optional (but really necessary) shelf stays level and allows you to set your monitor or clamp a monitor arm while freely adjusting the angle of the primary surface up to 15º. The combination of perching and standing is low impact physical activity, the kind that even the AMA is now supporting. The good part is that instead of being distracting, it actually encourages focus. Thus the name Focal. Trust us, you just have to try it and you'll get it. We certainly do. In fact, Applied Ergonomics is the exclusive dealer in Chicago or the Midwest for Focal Upright Furniture.
