The goal of this project is to investigate the feasibility of integrating an improved crane operating system into Boeing’s Everett facility to strive towards a safer and more efficient system. The current cab-operated crane system poses risks of injury to operators which may lead to decreased productivity and increased worker costs.
SitFlow is a start-up company that produces under-desk apparatuses that work similarly to ellipticals, yet SitFlows allow people to move while working in a sedentary environment. Previous experiments have been performed in the past examining the physiological and ergonomic aspects of the product. In this case, the group of students worked with SitFlow to design and carry out an experiment tailored to focusing on SitFlow’s effects on user’s productivity and cognitive ability. Enjoy!
