Steelcase Ology

Steelcase have introduced a unique desk system that can be altered to allow you to sit and stand during your working day.

The Ology desk can be set at five different heights and it has been designed to encourage people who are working at desks all day to change their posture throughout the day. A recent study, carried out by University of Strathclyde found that people who spend more than eight hours a day sat in a chair are more than twice as likely to be anxious and four times as likely to be depressed compared to people who stand up for short periods of time throughout the working day.

Dr Mike Loosemore who carried out the research explained that regular physical activity such as standing up and walking short distances can improve health and reduce the risks of illnesses such as high blood pressure and heart disease. He said, “It is important to remember that every movement is an active one.” He added that “even the smallest increase in activity during your working routine can have long-term benefits to your health.”

With the Steelcase Ology desk you can programme height settings or use the up and down buttons to manually adjust the desk to find the right height for you.

Bostjan Ljubic, Vice President of Steelcase UK and Ireland said, “Not only is it more comfortable and convenient, it is proven more effective and also gives users one more reason to stand.”

Steelcase are revolutionary in designing products that allow you to adapt your work space to suit you and their products make keeping active during your working week easier. Steelcase hit the headlines with their Walkstation a desk with integrated treadmill! With a maximum speed of 2mph you can walk comfortably whilst carrying on with your normal work. Designed to let you burn calories and feel healthier and more energised whilst working the Walkstation is more than a novelty desk. The desk is height adjustable like the Ology range and the treadmill itself is whisper quiet so you don’t have to worry about distracting anyone else.

Earlier in the year Victoria Beckham added an image of her using the Walkstation in the Condé Nast College, we wonder if she has added one to her office?
