Increased quality of life in the workplace - physically and mentally
Staying healthy even when performing physically demanding work -- this is one of the goals of holistic corporate health management. For years, Fraunhofer IGD has been conducting research in this area and developing technology for mental health, such as methods for measuring stress at the workplace. The institute also offers consultation services for industry partners.
