    Designed for Wellbeing

    Supporting wellbeing in the workplace

    The health of any organization is dependent on the wellbeing of its employees. A healthy work-
    place safeguards the company’s most significant investment—its people—ensuring maximum efficiency and innovation.

    Ology height-adjustable desk is designed to support the wellbeing of workers and encourage a more health-conscious environment.

    Posture Change

    Posture Change

    Improving the physiology of work

    Ology makes it easy to change worksurface height and posture, and its convenient, intuitive controls encourage more health-conscious behaviors.

    Ology with Active Touch: User Adjustment Video

    Learn how to adjust your Ology height-adjustable worksurface with the Active Touch controller and pair to the Rise mobile app. Designed to remind you to change postures with Active Motion, it allows you to create a profile with preset desk heights and preferred intervals of sitting and standing. The Bluetooth-enabled controller seamlessly pairs with the Rise mobile app so you can take your presets with you and track your level of activity over time.

    Tailored Ergonomics

    Tailored Ergonomics

    Ergonomics Tailored to Individual Needs

    Ology is available with an integrated rail that supports space division, lighting, power and worktools, which can all be customized to meet the specific needs and workstyles of the user.

    An optional soft edge profile helps to significantly reduce unhealthy pressure on forearms, and reduce feelings of shoulder and neck fatigue.

    Antimicrobial Protection

    Antimicrobial Protection

    Clean Environments

    Ology offers BactiBlock®, an antimicrobial additive that can be molded into the desk’s most frequently touched components. The additive suppresses the growth of algae, mold, mildew, fungi and bacteria which cause unpleasant odors, discoloration, stains and deterioration.

    Take Control of Wellbeing in the Workplace

    Every aspect of Ology has been designed to promote user movement and wellbeing, including two control options—Simple Touch and Active Touch.

    Ology’s Simple Touch control empowers users to effortlessly move the desk up or down without taking their eyes off their work, while Active Touch reminds workers to change posture with gentle desk motions.

    Active Touch pairs seamlessly with the Rise app allowing users to create a profile with preset heights and activity goals, and to track their level of activity over time.

    Physical Challenges

    People are simply not moving enough throughout their workday. In fact, adults are sitting 50-70% of the time.

    This sedentary workstyle poses long-term physical challenges, from back and neck pain to repetitive stress injuries.
