For non-Herman Miller desks, though, it usually collects information on when people are during their desks.


The sensor was designed to assistance companies “lower operational costs, urge space utilization, and raise worker well-being.”

Live OS claims that initial contrast showed users were 6 times some-more active regulating it, and, by being some-more active, people are “more productive, efficient, and engaged.” However, a health advantages of station desks have been hotly debated.

Sensors are being sole away for $100 and a program that comes with it costs $36 per table per year. The app that pairs with Herman Miller desks costs $60 per table per year. However, Quartz records that prices dump as companies buy some-more sensors and allow to a use for longer durations of time.


Live OS isn’t a initial program that uses information to boost workplace productivity, though. Humanyze marks worker interactions online and in-person, and GE’s Current uses light sensors to lane movement.
