This is just one of the encouraging findings in the study conducted by Stanford University, “Impact of a Sit-Stand Workstation on Chronic Low Back Pain Results of a Randomized Trial.” Published online in the Journal of...

Undoubtedly, the majority of your colleagues are carrying their personal mobile devices to the office these days. Suffice to say, these professionals are producing, storing and sending such important documents as RFPs, presentations and financial results on these devices.

Want to take a selfie with your favorite celebrity sports player or music artist the next time you see them in action? Or how about juggling a virtual soccer ball while walking from the parking lot to stadium? With augmented reality (AR) this idea isn’t entirely farfetched.

I just returned from the EDspaces 2015 show for education furniture. The attendees were largely educators, architects and designers, and resellers seeking to use new furniture concepts to improve learning objectives. Among what I expected to see there, there were also a few surprises. Here are my “cliff” notes from the event if you couldn’t atten...

As I touched upon in my last blog post, the engagement element of live social media feeds displayed on digital signage during events for sports teams, music/literary artists, retailers and even corporations, for that matter, can be pretty profound. I mean, what team or music artist wouldn’t want praise from their fans at a live event, right? The s...

I just read a very practical research review article in Ergonomics in Design entitled, “Is Standing the Solution to Sedentary Office Work?” by Jack P. Callaghan, et. al.  It provides a suggested ratio of 1:1 alternating between sitting and standing, with no more than 15 minutes of standing at a time.  That is good practical guidance supported by a...
