Start a healthy movement

Research shows that moving from one posture to another is beneficial to our health: people who move more, feel better. And people who feel better work better.

Power posture

The Ratio height-adjustable desk enables a smooth transition between sitting and standing. Users can vary their posture as they need to find the right balance between sitting and standing throughout the day. Ratio can be specified as single desks or in unlimited clusters, working with our other desking solutions to complete any floor plate.

Sit. Stand. Move. Repeat.

The average worker spends between three and eight hours a day at their desk, with many of us spending more time sitting down than sleeping. Research shows links between sedentary lifestyles and an increased risk of diabetes, obesity, heart disease and some kinds of cancer. Standing for short periods increases blood flow, burns extra calories and increases our metabolism. Extended standing can lead to increased risk of back pain and fatigue, so it’s best to switch positions during the day. Height-adjustable furniture can reduce sitting times by up to 60 per cent, and by alternating between sitting and standing our bodies are healthier.

Effortless design

With its clean lines and lightweight, uncluttered design, Ratio has been designed to blend into the modern office landscape. Ratio encourages users to move and change their posture throughout the working day. It is available with two kinds of electric height adjustment, including programmable pre-sets for use at assigned desks. This means a user can adjust their desk to exactly the right height for them at the touch of a button. Manual height adjustment is also available.

Define the space

There are a number of different screen options for Ratio, depending on the configuration of the workspace. When used in a stand-alone format, the screen is optional; if included, the screen moves up and down simultaneously to afford the user additional privacy. In a back-to-back formation, the screen remains in a fixed position between the two desks.

A dynamic work environment

Ratio works seamlessly with our other products, from other desking and storage systems to task chairs and complementary side tables, to create a dynamic work environment where movement throughout the day is intuitive. Ratio’s design ensures that ergonomic tools such as Flo monitor arms are fully supported. This enables the user to easily modify the position of one or more screens when adjusting their own posture.
