Digital Health Management: Easy going
IoTAssist research project for less sitting at work
IoTAssist: Towards healthier employees with a shared walking desk
The human body is a fascinating machine, but unfortunately it is not designed to remain at a standstill for 8 to 10 hours a day. Back pain and obesity are just two possible consequences of a screen-heavy workday.
Sitting. For hours on end. And possibly on unsuitable chairs. Studies show, however, that we should sit for no more than 50% of our working time. Standing is already better than sitting, but walking is ideal. This is exactly what our musculoskeletal system is designed for.
Health is very important to us. Especially the health of our employees, who give their best every day. With the IoTAssist research project in cooperation with DFKI and other innovative partners, we want to give something back to our team by creating real incentives to walk more during work.
We want you to go... for a walk.
To motivate our colleagues to walk more during working hours, we did what we do best: Talking to users, identifying requirements and developing an interaction concept based on them.
