Our work creates new knowledge to better inform company wellness policy and the establishment of activity-promoting workplaces.
Our findings and new technologies will make sedentary workers healthier. In addition to using commercially available self-monitoring devices, we’re also developing new software, apps and e-solutions that will better monitor workers’ physical activity.
