Problem statement: How to improve health at workplace
Description: We did a IDEO-Acumen human-centred design course on prototyping with researchers at the Open University. As a part of this practical course, we followed a Design Thinking approach to solve the challenge on "How to Improve Health at Workplace." The workshop was done in 5 sessions spreaded across 2 months.
We came up with a solution to have a smart chair that physically nudges (vibrates) the person to give up sedentary habits and take regular breaks while sitting and working for long hours continuosly. We created several prototypes (product, service and environment), took feedback from user, iterated over our prototypes and tested the final prototypes in the field.
