Abstract

Movement on a regular basis is essential for a vital body and physical processes. Since the amount of sedentary work at offices has been increasing for years, the socio-economic burden of back pain, hypertension, overweight, obesity and diabetes have risen, too. "Active Office" combines biomechanical and ergonomic principles with interactive interfaces in order to diminish the lack of movement at work, decrease the prevalence of occupational physical disability and increase productivity.
