Texas A&M: Sit, Stand and Shake – Adjustability and Ergonomics

The fabled 20-8-2 rule for office workers (sit 20 minutes, stand 8 minutes, walk 2 minutes) has real-world validity as discussed in this podcast featuring Dr. Mark Benden, director of Texas A&M’s Ergonomics Center and head of the Department of Environmental and Occupational Health at the Texas A&M School of Public Health. But keeping your workforce – whether office-bound, at home or in a factory – healthy, happy and productive involves a systematic combination of human, equipment and training that will vary by employee. Dr. Benden also discusses how artificial intelligence and machine learning will help research move from active to passive sensors and build living systems that learn when, where and how to prompt your workforce to make the right adjustments and take the right breaks to achieve optimal productivity.
