College of Design Research Forum: Maureen Linden

Date: February 23, 2017

Time: 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Location: Architecture Library, on the first floor of the Architecture West building

Please join us as Maureen Linden speaks on the "Use of Adjustable Office Furnishings:  Toward a Smart Office." Linden, a Research Engineer II at CATEA, will speak in the  Architecture Library as part of the 2016-2017 College of Design Research Forum.

In her talk she will discuss how technology can optimize the use of adjustable ergonomic office furnishings to reduce pain, fatigue, and productivity. The results of a pilot study will be presented. These include 1) the development of instrumentation to measure how people use their equipment and 2) trends in the relationship between equipment use and pain or fatigue experienced by the user. Implications for future research in this area will also be discussed.

The research forums are a place for the College of Design community and our friends across the campus to experience the design- and technology-focused research at Georgia Tech.

From music technology to product design; from assistive technology to healthcare; from architecture to city planning, we explore the many ways technology can solve critical problems for the way we live.

You’re invited to attend each of these free sessions in the Architecture Library, on the first floor of the Architecture West building. Cookies and coffee will be served.

The series will take place Thursdays from 11 a.m. to Noon.
