Problem Space

The standard hours of work for employees are either 8 hours a day(40 hours a week) or 7.5 hours a day (37.5 hours a week). Research has shown that spending too many hours sitting in front of a computer or at a desk will cause chronic back pain and unhealthy weight gain. 57% of people blame their sedentary office job for a decline in their health and fitness and 92% percent said they regularly have days where they spend most of the day sitting down. This decreases their motivation to have a healthy and balance lifestyle.

Possible Solution (Introduction to ElectroPlant)

To achieve a healthy and balance lifestyle, we should aim for at least 30minutes of moderate physical activity every day. ElectroPlant helps to reduce sitting time by having intervals of 5 minutes brisk walk throughout the day to increase employee’s motivation for a healthy and balance lifestyle.

It is a fun activity where everyone will be trying to maintain a healthy and balance lifestyle that can help to increase their focus and productivity in their work.

How does it work ?

The chair will detect the employee’s weight and will automatically set the pace and intensity according to their physical capability. The chair will have a small vibration and will sound off with a beep to notify the workers that it is time for their walk. Once everyone stands up ,the chair will automatically move backwards to allow some space for them to walk. The treadmill will then make a sound to signify the start of the walk. This time will allow employees to spend some time exercising as well as motivating their colleagues to achieve a health and balance lifestyle

Once the walk is completed, the treadmill will then make a sound and a to signify the completion of the walk, the chair will automatically go back to its position. The electrical output generated from the treadmill after every work will help to grow the plant.At the end of the day, employees can get to see how many workouts they have completed and they will be more encouraged to want to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
