A modern working environment is closely connected to sitting. People spend most of their time in sedentary positions, either in the office or at home. Of course, this brings several negative consequences, including tiredness.
Researchers from InnoRenew CoE’s Human Health in the Built Environment research group are studying the effects of office cycling on posture, work efficiency and comfort. A few short cycling sessions in the office may boost people’s energy level and preserve cardio-metabolic health.
Through InnoRenew CoE’s boost project, “Ergonomic, adaptable, and active office furniture”, researchers are discovering which type of office cycling performs best when posture, work efficiency and comfort are under investigation.
