Ology height-adjustable desks support the physiology and biology of workers and encourage a more health-conscious environment.
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.
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.
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.
BIOLOGY TO BENEFIT WORKPLACE WELLBEING
We researched the most frequently touched surfaces on a desk and applied an optional antimicrobial protection on those areas. As a result, Ology offers the up/down controller and the soft edge profile with antimicrobial protection.
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 (available Winter 2018) allowing users to create a profile with preset heights and activity goals, and to track their level of activity over time.
A GLOBAL CHALLENGE
There is a clear correlation between employee engagement and business performance. Many organizations realize the importance of employee wellbeing and it's effect on productivity, efficiency, innovation and employee engagement, yet many struggle to articulate the factors that impact employee wellbeing and few know how to improve it.
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.
72% of workers still report to work when sick. With an increasingly mobile workforce sharing germs, this results in more absenteeism, decreased productivity, chronic disability and a decline in organizational performance.
