Easy chair and fitness coach in one
Mar 05, 2013: Demographic trends have been telling the story for years. An increasingly aging society is becoming more and more self-reliant. With this in mind, researchers are working on technologies to help us manage our daily lives in later years. Fraunhofer IIS, based in Erlangen, Germany, will be introducing one such technology at the 2013 CeBIT trade fair in Hannover from March 5 to 9 (hall 9, booth E08): an intelligent easy chair designed not only for lounging comfortably in front of the television, but also for motivating us to stay healthy and in shape. The following partners have been working on this project: ISA Informationssysteme GmbH, himolla Polstermöbel GmbH, Sophia mit P.S. GmbH, Technische Universität München, Chair of Preventive Pediatrics and Chair of Building Realisation and Robotics, Innovationsmanufaktur GmbH and EnOcean GmbH.
