Humanscale Integrates Health Tracking Software Into Office Furniture
Saturday Jan 10, 2015 (00:04:53)
When you think of office furniture, health and wellness tracking might not be a feature you consider. The team at Humanscale is hoping to change that with a line of smart furniture that can track your activities and help you stay active and healthy. The furniture can track you while working, both sitting and standing, and let you know when you should switch positions or just get up and move around.
The trend of integrating health and wellness programs into the workplace has been growing in recent years. In fact, the practice has even been featured on sitcoms like The Office, where the branches competed to lose weight. With office furniture like this in offices, it could greatly increase the effectiveness of these programs. More importantly, it could greatly improve the health of employees.
From laptops and Lumia to Surface and Xbox, get it at the Microsoft Store.
