Humanscale Redefines the Active Office with Product Debuts at Neocon 2015

Revolutionary New Technology and Intelligent Designs Work Together To Create a Healthier Workspace

New York, NY, June 15, 2015 — Humanscale, the pioneer in ergonomics, is presenting their latest product innovations at NeoCon 2015 in Chicago, Showroom #351. The products debuting at NeoCon embody Humanscale’s dedication to the creation of ergonomic work tools that promote an active, healthy work environment. Visitors to Humanscale’s showroom will also preview OfficeIQ, the ultimate in office intelligence that transforms traditional offices into active workspaces.

Humanscale’s OfficeIQ
makes furniture work for people by helping users make better health decisions throughout their day–not just in the office. Available in Q3, this sleek, unobtrusive, portable box can be retrofitted to any height adjustable workstation, and prompts users to move throughout their day. This revolutionary new software solution seamlessly fuses technology with ergonomic design. Integrated into task chairs, sit/stand desks and workstations, OfficeIQ provides room occupancy insight and monitors when users sit, stand or leave desks to promote more physical activity. This groundbreaking tool is the result of a collaboration with Detroit-based Tome Software.
Humanscale will also be unveiling these intelligent work tools at NeoCon 2015:

Diffrient Occasional Chair by Niels Diffrient:
The elegant Diffrient Occasional Chair was designed by Niels Diffrient to complement his mesh task chair line of Liberty, Smart, and Diffrient World. Using patented form-sensing mesh, Diffrient Occasional contours to the natural shape of the body and eliminates the need for any separate lumbar support devices. Stackable up to 5 chairs, Diffrient Occasional is a classic Niels piece – functional, minimal and comfortable.  

The M/Connect USB 3.0 docking station is a unique innovation that merges ergonomics and technology. Available with Humanscale’s M8 and M2 monitor arms, M/Connect gives easy access to active ports and conceals permanent connections to reduce cable clutter. The M/Connect USB docking station, installed with a monitor arm, improves comfort, health and productivity while offering instant use of all devices through “plug-and-play” connection. M/Connect is at the heart of the effortlessly connected, active workspace.  

Strong and effortlessly adjustable, M/Power is the first-ever, fully-integrated computer support arm that accommodates up to four monitors. The M/Power is the customizable choice for any multi-screen workspace. M/Power is a central power column with a cable management solution; adjustable crossbar; 144-degree viewing experience; and 15-degree monitor tilt capability to aid in reducing eye fatigue.

QS2 is the latest breakthrough in sit-to-stand innovation. The workstation has a sleek minimal aesthetic and a flexible arm with increased, all-around range of motion. Built with recyclable aluminum, QS2 is engineered to provide stability to ensure the monitor doesn't shake while typing on the keyboard platform. QS2 can be easily transported from one workstation to another–creating a truly active workspace.
