Solving the Problem of a Sedentary Lifestyle 

Science has shown just how unhealthy it is to sit for a majority of the day. Even exercise and proper diet can't cancel out the problems caused by sitting too much. Unfortunately, many careers and jobs center around this posture, making 40+ hours of the week more dangerous to your long-term health than you would think.

Human Solution is on a mission to provide the healthiest and most productive office solutions. We're here to help you, our customers, eliminate the negative effects of a sedentary working lifestyle, starting with our industry leading  stand up desks, chairs, and accessories. Whether you sit for only an hour or all day, there is a better way to stay healthy at work. Let us help you find the right solutions for your work habits and space.

It starts with the study of ergonomics. Ergonomics is the science of designing the workplace to fit the worker based on improving productivity and reducing injuries caused by repetitive stress, poor posture, and high forces. The most important thing to remember is that you need to keep moving throughout the day. Our products are designed to do just that.

Community Outreach

Community service and support are integral parts of our company philosophy. We know that healthy living doesn’t start and stop at work, it’s the little choices we make every day that add up to a healthy lifestyle. That’s why we’re here to share our message.

  • Lifeworks provides education, affordable housing, therapeutic counseling, and job training to those striving toward self-sufficiency. Families, young adults, and children all benefit from their help that focuses on tackling some of the toughest problems with sustainable solutions that help at a real level.
  • The Flatwater Foundation lends a hand by helping and counseling for those dealing with cancer, taking a very sensitive approach to working to disrupt the stigma surrounding the condition and asking for support.
  • The Central Texas Food Bank provides countless meals to thousands of families across Austin and the surrounding areas. Not only do they offer fresh, nutritious, and nourishing food to people of all ages (totaling over 26 million meals a year), but they also offer education about healthy eating and connect them with additional resources within their communities.
  • The Texas Homeless Network strives toward finding solutions that end homelessness throughout Texas. This includes training, education, funding, and technical support for the homeless, agencies, and organizations that work with the homeless.
  • The Big Brother Big Sisters of Central Texas pairs adult volunteers with children and youths living in difficult and impoverished situations; this mentorship is meant to elevate and support those who need it the most.
  • Safe Place offers useful services to families and people in Austin that have been affected by violence.
  • Trees for US is a tree-planting partnership done with the help of the National Forest Foundation. You can feel good about your solid wood desk - for each one purchased we plant five trees in a U.S. National Forest.

Our founder, Jon Paulsen, a Certified Professional Ergonomist, started Human Solution in 2002 with the intent of designing, making, and bringing ergonomic adjustable-height standing desks to the world.
