1. A method of moving a tabletop of a workstation in a plurality of dimensions based on biometric input associated with a user, the method being performed by a controller that is configured to send control signals to one or more actuators to move the tabletop, wherein the controller is connected to one or more user devices having a user interface, the method comprising:
accessing a user profile associated with or stored in a user device of the one or more user devices;
determining one or more parameters for moving the tabletop, based on the user profile, for eliciting one or more desired biometric inputs from the user that indicate the health of the user or movement by the user at one or more times during the movement of the tabletop; and
repeating one or more iterations of:
moving the tabletop based on the one or more parameters, by sending control signals from the controller to the one or more actuators;
receiving, into a data storage device, one or more actual biometric inputs from the user indicating the health of the user or movement by the user;
determining whether the one or more parameters for moving the tabletop elicit the one or more desired biometric inputs by comparing the received one or more actual biometric inputs with the one or more desired biometric inputs; and
if the one or more parameters do not elicit the one or more desired biometric inputs, adjusting the one or more parameters,
wherein the one or more actual biometric inputs of the user include one or more of:
a blood pressure;
a respiratory rate;
a measurement of oxygen saturation;
a glucose concentration;
a measurement of perspiration; and
a brain activity measurement.
