Live longer, feel better, & be more productive! OMEGA: The next evolution in standing desk and treadmill desk ergonomic design.
An infinitely-adjustable, ergonomic keyboard tray, built right in
Most people are aware that adjustable keyboard trays (AKTs) are supposed to improve ergonomics when using a computer. They do this by tilting the keyboard's front edge up in order to eliminate "wrist extension," among other good things. When seated at a desk, these measures work well. However, standing desk and treadmill desk users soon find that conventional keyboard trays cannot adjust sufficiently to achieve the ideal geometries required when not sitting - they were never designed to. iMovR's pioneering research in this arena has led to the development of the Omega Desk line (patents pending), incorporating an infinitely-adjustable keyboard tray right into the desktop.
The Omega is the first and only adjustable-height desk on the market with optimal ergonomics for all three modalities: sitting, standing and even walking on a treadmill.
Most AKTs cannot achieve more than -15 degrees of keyboard tilt. When standing, without the benefit or chair armrests to support the user's forearms, -15 degrees is not enough to achieve the most "neutral" and therefore ergonomic position. This can lead to a variety of muscle and joint strains, and can result in reduced typing speed, accuracy and endurance. In over two years of extensive user testing iMovR's engineers figured out that steeper keyboard inclines can correct these issues by allowing the user to type at a more neutral angle - putting the least strain on muscles and joints in the hands, wrists, arms, shoulders and neck - while minimizing "computer hunch" and eliminating wrist flexion and extension entirely.
SteadyType™: exclusively from iMovR
The proprietary SteadyType design allows the keyboard to be set at literally any angle up to -85 degrees (and without losing your keyboard). A tilt angle of -20 degrees or greater is what most users will find the most comfortable for typing while standing. For treadmill desk usage, angles of -25 to -40 degrees achieve the greatest improvements in ergonomics and comfort, as well as maximizing typing speed, accuracy, and endurance. A crucial additional benefit for treadmill deskers is eliminating "anchoring stresses." A common occurrence on other treadmill desks, users will typically "anchor" themselves to their desk by pressing down on their palms to keep their hands over the keyboard and maintain stability as they sway with their walking motions and the treadmill belt pulls them backwards. This anchoring position is ergonomically detrimental as it subjects the wrists to strain and fatigue, Working at steeper angles allows the hands to relax and merely "hang on" loosely, without needing to apply pressure on the palms to maintain a consistent hand position over the keyboard.
The net result is improved comfort, higher typing speeds, and greater accuracy at faster walking speeds than can be achieved with any other treadmill desk setup.
Don't forget about the mouse
High-end keyboard trays often have a separate mouse pad (sometimes called a "lily pad") that allows you to raise the height of the mouse relative to the keyboard. This helps keep your upper arm as vertical as possible: Reaching out for a mouse or trackball can aggravate joints and muscles in the arm and shoulder. The Omega's keyboard tray has two height settings that position it lower than the desk surface, in order to achieve the same ergonomic goal and keep that upper arm from moving out.
Great ergonomics, but also the best overall stability of any sit-stand desk
We always recommend using a keyboard tray on any workstation, but the truth is that using a keyboard tray on any 2-leg, adjustable-height desk can lead to significant monitor shaking—especially if that monitor is mounted to a monitor arm like it should be. By incorporating the keyboard tray directly into the desktop, the user's typing pressure is applied only inches from the center crossbar of the desk. The difference in desk and monitor stability is amazing. The Omega is by far the most rigid height-adjustable table ever devised, and dramatically more stable than any two-leg desk using a keyboard tray. Watch this demonstration video to see what we mean.
Three models to choose from: EVEREST, OLYMPUS and DENALI
The DENALI, featured here, is based on iMovR's top-of-the-line manual (crank) height-adjustable desk, the ThermoDesk ELLURE. If you're looking for an electrically-powered, made-in-America desk, please check out the Omega EVEREST, which is based on the top-of-the-line ThermoDesk ELITE. Or, for our most customizable Omega Desk yet, take a look at the Omega OLYMPUS, based on the popular ThermoDesk UpTown!
Easy-Turn Height Adjustment Crank
The DENALI shares the same SteadyType table top technology with the EVEREST but is adjusted manually, rather than electrically. The DENALI comes in four different tabletop widths, as shown below. All tops are 30" deep.
The DENALI's 42” and 48" tabletops come with a fully sealed, extra-large grommet hole that shows off the Omega's 3D-lamination. The 60” and 72” versions come standard with two such grommet holes. Use the grommet holes to pass cables through, or install iMovR's optional dual-AC, or single AC/dual-USB, power module to bring easy power access right to the tabletop.
The Omega DENALI reaches a top-end height of over 49", and descends to a sitting height of 30". The keyboard tray itself also has two mounting positions for customizing the height difference between the keyboard and the mouse.
The DENALI's weight lifting capacity is rated at 200 lbs. while in motion, and 390 lbs. when stationary (not including the weight of the tabletop, which varies by size). The travel speed on this light-touch crank is three-turns-per-inch. Compare to much more expensive competitors that require five turns per inch.
The DENALI's warranty includes iMovR's standard five-year coverage on all of their 3D-laminated tabletops, a lifetime warranty on the frame and two years on moving parts.

Why 3D lamination is superior to standard lamination
Your run-of-the-mill desktop is manufactured using a process called high-pressure lamination (HPL). 3D lamination is an entirely new process that requires a very large, very expensice ($1million+) machine. It enables iMovR to have their tops custom-made to order and shipped out within one week of ordering. Very few furniture manufacturers have such equipment, and iMovR is the only maker of height-adjustable tables that offers 3D lamination. Because the process is so highly automated they save enough in labor to price their 3D-laminated products where most manufacturers price their lesser quality HPL tabletops.
Your table top starts with the wood slab, which is shaped by CNC routing machines to a precision of 1/5000ths of an inch. This includes putting an "ergo contour" on all four edges. Once formed, iMovR thermofuses Omnova Surf(x) 3D Laminate to the tabletop under high temperature and pressure, making a perfect, hermetically-sealed bond all around. The contoured edges and even the grommet holes show the woodgrain pattern perfectly. The resulting product has the appearance of an extravagantly carved hardwood desk, yet costs the same as far less durable and less elegant HPL product most everyone else uses in the industry. They don't cover their grommet holes with cheap plastic caps because you'll want to show off the real wood appearance of your desk.
The Omnova Surf(x) 3D laminate used in iMovR table tops is more durable and resistant to chemicals, scratches, and dings than typical HPL. In fact, you'd historically find these laminates working 24/7 in hospitals, where they constantly use harsh chemicals to clean and disinfect their desktop surfaces. That's right, you can spill bleach on your Omega desktop and never see any discoloration.
Most wood tabletops are attached to their bases with wood screws, which can degrade the integrity of the wood after only a few disassemblies and re-assemblies. Omega tabletops have recessed nuts installed in them, so they can be attached to their bases using machine screws. No more sawdust, and you'll never have to re-drill new holes no matter how many times you take the desk apart.
Where most other table tops come with short warranties reflecting their minimal qualities, all iMovR tops come with a FIVE YEAR warranty, though they're designed to last a lifetime.

Make it Your Own
Choose your base color:
Choose from black or silver powder coat finish.
Choose your Power Management Options:
Unique to iMovR desks is the optional Grommet-Mounted Power Socket that brings dual AC or single-AC/dual-USB outlets to the top of the table. This is ideal for shared workstations where users may want to power their laptops or charge their mobile devices, without having to bend down and search for a free outlet along the floor. Silver or black powder-coated finish, with a 72" cord. The 48" table top can accommodate a single Power Socket; the 60", 72" and 83" tops can accept one or two Power Sockets.
Choose your Monitor Arm:
For the best ergonomics you'll always want to use a Monitor Arm to hold your LCD screen(s) up to the proper height. Choose from single or dual-arm models, in both standard and "tall pole" versions (recommended for anyone over 5'10").
