Gymba is an intriguing little rocker board for standing desk that came to our attention as soon as we plunged into the exciting world of active standing. Aside from its non-typical size and shape, it comes with a ridged surface, carpeted backing, an ISPO 2017 Award (editor’s note: ISPO is a European authority on sporting goods, athletic footwear, and fashion as well as their latest trends), and an impressive 5-year warranty to boot.
Gymba board comes in an inverted arching shape as opposed to a standard flat board that balances on a small base. Thanks to its flexible body, you can introduce motion into your routine by simply moving the board with your feet. Furthermore, its surface is divided by ridges that can help promote blood circulation and massage tired feet, if you kick off your shoes.
Since the board has an arching shape, it only allows rocking side to side movement, but can probably be also used for good muscle stretching and self-massage aside from balancing. The board is probably more suitable for those with the balance issues as well as the individuals of below average height.
Gymba is a Small Rocker Board for Standing Desk
While the back of the board is covered with carpet-like padding to prevent floor scratching, each of the Gymba’s corners features a rubber grip, offering more stability and safety to users, especially to those who are wearing dress shoes.
One major drawback, though, is the board’s small size. At just 18.3”, it comes almost two inches shorter than BackApp 360, and may not be the best choice for tall users who prefer a wider stance. So far, we found Gymba to be the smallest of all office balance boards on the market. But does it have any other issues?
