Make me healthy.

At Limber we’re on a mission to create working environments that leave us healthier and happier, just from being there. Effortless. We were stuck working at fixed workstations from our laptops, feeling the pain and seeing our friends suffer, so we thought we would look for a better way.

Founded by a Physio, Engineer and creative thinkers bending the rules to make healthy, high performing behaviours the default. Systematically connecting the latest scientific understanding of health, performance and behaviour change with the environments we spend the majority of our productive life, the work space.

Effortless health and performance.

Starting with the desk, we have taken a behavioural insights approach to understanding how we can disrupt our personal workspace to create health and high performance by making the good stuff the default, on the daily.

If you want to encourage a behaviour, make it Easy, Attractive, Social and Timely (EAST). These four simple principles, based on the Behavioural Insight Teams work and the wider academic literature, form the heart of how we look at working environments to unearth behaviour challenges and opportunities to create an environment that makes health and high performance the default.

Three years, 20+ iterations, 100’s of collaborators later and working alongside some of New Zealand’s most progressive tech companies (like Xero, Dev Academy and TradeMe) we have crafted two tools that are shifting the way people work.

Sustainability.

Leave it better than you found.

We go out of our way to make sure what we do at Limber is contributing positively to the earth and the people we work with. We design our products to stand the test of time and be simple to fix should that fail. We make them in ways and from materials that care for people and the planet.

In 2017 we partnered with the Common Unity Project Aotearoa community where inside their Re-makery we produce Limber and work with their partners and projects to provide opportunities to the local community with the mission of feeding and caring for the young people in our community.

In 2018 we offset 225% of our operating carbon emissions and are working towards having full transparency on the supply chain and environmental impacts of all components of Limber, read more about this here.

We’re not perfect, yet. We will work with you to make sure we can become a model for a sustainable economy. One which cares deeply for planet and people and uses its power create a world we can all thrive within.
