I've been searching around for interfaces that improve your health but I'm not having much luck. I'm a software developer who's fed up with destroying my body by sitting stagnant in bad posture, slowly getting carpal tunnel and all the other side effects that go along with prolonged periods of sitting. Yes, there are stand up desks, but that's more of a bandaid solution IMO.
If anyone knows of any research being done or interfaces that exist that improve your health please let me know. By this I mean some way of interacting with computers that would improve or maintain the following:
- circulation and cardiovascular health
- relieve stress
- increase energy
I don't expect something as drastic as a treadmill, but for example, why do we position our hands way in front of us and most of the time angled up, causing the blood to drain from our wrists and our shoulders to be forward. Shouldn't be have our arms down more so the blood can flow, and so our shoulders are down and back? Just off the top of my head.. but the point is we have to integrate our health into the design process. So far it seems to be totally void.
