SmartCushion promotes Healthy Living by giving office workers and other customers that spend a considerable amount of time on their chairs a new and useful way for intervening at a point in their lifestyles that is often overlooked. They need real time feedback on how to deal with sedentary lifestyle caused by their chosen profession. SmartCushion will provide an easy, but effective countermeasure that unobtrusively integrates into their work flow. Back pain patients can also use the system in a similar fashion and are provided with targeted and individualized training sessions that can be followed.
SmartCushion can also support the therapies of millions of back pain patients within physiotherapy. Together with the user the therapist can evaluate the gathered data of SmartCushion and suggest the next therapy steps on a highly individualized level. Therapists get information of the patients’ sitting behavior and can teach techniques, like sitting on the whole seat or how to have a uniform load on both sit bones based on real data. In Germany fitbase has an existing network of physiotherapists who already use fitbase solutions to support back therapies.
SmartCushion supports active ageing by providing a solution for the ageing work force. Companies can distribute our system to provide an easy way for targeted and unobtrusive intervention at the workplace.
