Scientists develop `intelligent armchair`
Berlin: German scientists have designed an intelligent armchair that keeps one active and fit while carrying out basic activities.
Researchers have built an armchair that brings the gym right into your living room at the push of a button, reports Science Daily.
For years, the trends have been clear: not only are people getting older but they are also increasingly left to take care of themselves in their old age. This is why researchers are working on technologies that will assist them in everyday situations later in life.
One of these technologies involves an intelligent armchair to be presented by the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS in Erlangen (Germany) at the CeBIT trade fair in Hanover Mar 5-9.
"GEWOS, the chair, measures key bodily functions and determines the correct sitting posture. If the acquired values deviate from specifications, the system shows the user how he or she can practise improving endurance or sitting in a healthier position," explains Sven Feilner of the Image Processing and Medical Technology Department at IIS.
