Airtouch by Steelcase
Height-Adjustability for Anyone. Anywhere.
Countless studies show that people are healthier and more productive when they can change postures in their workspaces. The innovative Airtouch mechanism gives workers the ability to effortlessly, quickly and quietly adjust worksurface height — without the need for electricity — while encouraging frequent workstyle transitions.
Changing postures on a regular basis provides enormous benefits, including improved focus and energy, while promoting collaboration and engagement. Airtouch can be used seated one minute, then raised to create a standing meeting place or to simply change posture the next.
With a light touch, workers can effortlessly and quietly adjust their worksurface from 26″ to 43″ to fit their personal or task-related needs, be it sitting, standing, collaborative or solo. And because Airtouch doesn’t have any electrical components, it can be used anywhere. Load-bearing capacity is 150 lbs.

So while the primary objective was hardly startling, several key side benefits were largely unexpected.
Case Study – Intel
In a 2004 study of the “Effects of an electronic height-adjustable worksurface on self-assessed musculoskeletal disorders, discomfort and productivity among computer workers,” Intel Corporation, Santa Clara, CA determined key findings.
