New investment of innovative design of the future workstation: Advancing sedentary work behavior

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

This collaborative transdisciplinary research across the university was initiated with a seed grant from two different colleges to solve one of the major public health problems specifically focusing on humans’ sedentary behavior at the workplace. Sedentary behavior has emerged as a potential risk factor for numerous chronic diseases and all-cause mortality during the last decade. The aim of this study was to develop a new product and system to reduce the time spent sitting at the workplace. A series of physical working prototypes with electronic design and signal processing software application were designed and developed to demonstrate the usability, functionality, and human-interaction through scientifically valid measurements. This paper illustrates the process of system engineering and product design, methodology, and testing results.
