Smart Chair Technology

Ergonomist Bas van der Doelen of BMA Ergonomics, Zwolle visited from the Netherlands for our 3rd annual event: ErgonoMix on September 12th. He was excited to be telling us all about scientific research which demonstrates Posture Monitoring as a valuable tool in re-educating today’s sedentary, office worker after his involvement in the development and scientific field studies of the Axia Smart Chair.


Bas van der Doelen

His interest for the field of ergonomics was raised during his study Health Sciences at the Catholic University of Nijmegen, where he graduated in 1990. He started his career at the department of Training Medicine and Training Physiology of the Royal Netherlands Army where he worked on military fitness and health for almost 15 years. In 2004 he acheived a Masters Degree in Ergonomics after completing the PostDoctoral Ergonomics Course at the Free University of Amsterdam. Bas has been registered as a European Ergonomist since 2007 and a member of the Dutch Society board for Registered Ergonomists.

This unique office chair gives feedback to the end user on their sitting behaviour. Bas claims that we’re often unconscious to the way we are sitting until we start to feel pain. The Axia Smart chair can help identify staff that might need additional training as well as features which makes the end-user more conscious of how they position them-self sitting at the office which can ultimately improve the health and well-being of staff.
