This is a platform that can be used for several health benefits. You can find that these plates come in different sizes and have different ways to move you while on it.

For the person who has feet problem, this exercises and stimulates blood flow to the feet. There are many stretches and exercises that can be done while standing for the healthier person. Other known benefits are for proprioception, muscle tone and bone density.
A Better Pillow
Having a proper pillow is very important to having the spine lined up well when you sleep. Seems like most people spend roughly one third of their life asleep, the position that your neck is in during this time is very important. Designed to fit and support the curve of your spine, this customizable pillow allows you to sleep comfortably whether you sleep on your side or your back. For the person who suffers from neck pain, or just can not seem to get comfortable through a night’s sleep the right pillow could make all the difference.
A Knee Wedge To Use While Sleeping
For those people who sleep on their sides should have a pillow to hug and a pillow to put between their knees. Many people do well with different pillows to support their upper body and this one to support their knees. While the right pillow for your head helps support the proper curve for the neck, a knee wedge helps keep the lower back and hips in alignment throughout the night. This comfortable pillow may help with easing low back pain, sciatica and hip pain.
A Back Support For Your Office Chair
While everyone knows that sitting too long is not good for you, for those with an office job we know that avoiding sitting completely is not always an option. This is why having lumbar support can help ease low back pain, provide support and encourage better posture. This product can help turn any uncomfortable chair in the office, or at home into a more ergonomic and comfortable option.
Standing Desk Conversion
Whether you’re working from home or at the office, more and more people are realizing the benefits of a standing desk. The human body was not designed to sit in one position for eight or more hours a day. While some tools like the back support listed above can help for the times you have to sit, a much preferred option is to have a standing desk.
Having the option to stand or to change positions from standing to sitting frequently can have significant benefits for you. When switching to a standing desk people have noticed benefits such as decreased lower back pain, upper back pain, neck pain and overall improvement in posture.
