Health is one of the core topics of Fraunhofer research. At a joint booth, Fraunhofer IGD presents application-oriented solutions together with other institutes. This year, the focus will be on solutions for corporate health management. For example, a headband developed in collaboration with the University of Rostock measures stress factors at the workplace and thus helps to identify problem areas, while another new development is an intelligent chair that, like our other intelligent furniture, is equipped with capacitive sensors in the upholstery. These sensors detect the sitting position of a person and can determine whether the position is harmful in the long term and motivate people to sit in a healthier position. Any vital data can still be displayed by our visual control centre Healt@Hand. More information about the booth number and our exhibits will follow.
