ActiveLifeTrainer - What is that?

Keep in motion - be healthy and fit - all while working at your desk, reading, writing, playing computer games, watching TV,  but also while chilling, surfing, playing games, eating, and much more.

The new activeLiveTrainer by Prof. Christoph Leonhard - improve your fitness with low intensity exercise at your desk or table.

activeLife trainer is an under-desk elliptical exercise machine to which you can easily connected your office chair by placing one of its wheels into the connecting plate. When done, undo the connection simply by rollring your chair out. With the built-in Android and Apple iOS compatible Bluetooth smart sensor, you will stay motivated by tracking and sharing your activeLife Trainer work outs.

What quality markers does activeLife Trainer have? Is this a basic home-use mini elliptical? Is it built to 'light commercial' exercise machine standards? Actually, despite its compact dimensions, activeLife Trainer is an under-desk elliptical trainer which is 100% built to commercial exercise machine quality standards.Its frame is fully welded from thick gauge steel, top quality ball bearings are used throughout, and to minimize noise, roller wheels run on sound absorbing pads. ActiveLife Trainer also has the type of high tech features usually only found on commercial grade machines, including a fully iPhone and Android compatible Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) sensor which also works with many fitness tracking wristbands .

In der Entwicklung von activeLife Trainer stand von Anfang an die Bekämpfung von Bewegungsmangel im Vordergrund. Wir haben uns mit unseren Forschungsprojekten sowohl auf Primärprävention bei Büroangestellten aber auch auf Sekundärprävention bei Menschen mit Übergewicht konzentriert. Fachartikel und weitere Quellenangaben zu diesem Thema finden Sie auf https://www.vital-office.de/activelifetrainer. Da aber Bewegungsförderung auch in der Tertiärprävention /  Reha oft indiziert ist, ist es in der Tat so, dass Patienten diesen elliptischen Untertischergometer in den USA und anderen Ländern häufig auch für Rehabilitations Zwecke verwenden. Dabei ist immer wichtig Rücksprache mit ihrem Arzt halten, bevor Sie ein Programm zur Bewegungsförderung beginnen.

activeLife Trainer: Product and Design Philosophy

For thousands of years, human work naturally involved physical movement. Ailments such as high blood pressure and diabetes are virtually unknown in hunting and gathering societies, but modern humans are at great risk of developing them. ActiveLife Trainer’s product philosophy is to restore the freedom of physical movement in modern office work settings. With activeLife Trainer, office workers can leisurely stroll through the work day. This under desk elliptical exercise machine’ has a product design which pays tribute to the ancient “Yin-Yang” symbol which signifies overcoming seeming contradictions to signal the symbiosis of mental and physical activity.

Why are there four openings in that plate?

One internationally patented feature that’s unique to activeLife Trainer is the office-chair connection plate with its four openings. But what’s the point? Isaac Newton’s Third Law of Motion states that for every force, there is an equal force in the opposing direction. Applied to physical exercise on a mini elliptical or mini cycle, this means that if you push your feet against it - which you’ll do automatically when you use it - the machine will push back at you with an equal force. And if you sit on an office chair with wheels, as soon as you use such a mini machine, in no time at all, you’ll find yourself propelled away from the exercise machine. But by hooking one of the office chair wheels into one of the four connection plate openings, users of activeLife trainer avoid this common problem because the chair securely connects to allow hours of healthy and trouble free use.

vitAcoustic Acoustic Sideboard

Highly absorbing sound absorber as a tambour door and furniture surface for modular cabinets

A large absorber area and at the same time the highest sound-absorbing values ​​of Class A are usually only achieved by expensive large-scale wall or ceiling installations. 
With vitAcoustic acoustic furniture, however, you get a mobile concept integrated in the office furniture that makes you less dependent on fixed installations. 
This is because very practically sound-reflecting surfaces are replaced by sound-absorbing surfaces.

vitAcoustic Acoustic pictures with real moss acoustic cassette with bamboo wood frame and exchangeable highly sound absorbing PET acoustic panels with moss

Due to the special method of conservation of Island Moss and Hill (Upholstery Moss), the natural materials retain their fresh green, and the moss images and walls do not require artificial light or care or fertilization. VitAcoustic absorber are used as carrier material, which are highly sound absorbing, flame retardant (B1), insensitive to moisture and pliable for use in the 3d frame. We also realize more complex customer requests, such as the dressing of pillars and special design objects according to architect design. The evergreen elements have a particularly impressive effect when different types of moss and coloured vitAcoustic absorber are combined. In view of our manual and filigree production, we are literally a manufactory. Our Moss products are made entirely in Germany. Our Moss is certified to import to China!

Vital-Office® Bamboo Office

In the Vital-Office Concept (published as book) the objectives and influence factors of human stress-free and healthy Office design is defined. Among other things it is assumed that the value of our environment affects the quality of our work. The psychological factors involved are complex. ... The desk is a tool that allows you to work with ease and same time is influencing your long term health. It is the heart piece of office furniture.

The quality of our environment determines the quality of our work. This is well known today. So radically efficient, such as a clean city reduce the crime rate (see David Coleman "Social Intelligence" example of New York), so easily a quality furniture improves the mindfulness at work. The psychological factors are complex. But it is possible to observe yourself and get a feel for how an environment or furnishing affects you. Usually you will learn very spontaneously, what kind of work quality and productivity in this office can be achieved and which are not.  The desk is a tool that allows you to work with ease and same time is influencing your long term health. It is the heart piece of office furniture.

  1. The advantage of a desktop in bamboo solid wood is in the sustainability and quality, combined with an affordable price.
  2. The advantage for the entrepreneur is improved quality of work, mindfulness, and attractiveness.
  3. The advantage for the employee is appreciation and "feel good".

Büroeinrichtung - Eleganz, Ergonomie und Akustik

Schon lange mit uns auf dem Weg und immer wieder in sehr angenehmer Zusammenarbeit sind wir mit unserem Kunden Kunz-Schulze Immobilien.

Acoustic calculator According to DIN 18041-online calculation of sound absorption in offices, conference rooms and classrooms

In order for a room acoustic measure to be calculated and assessed realistically, well-founded acoustic physical basic knowledge and practical experience is appropriate. In particular, the initial values of reality must be determined accordingly. For sensitive areas, the measurement should be carried out professionally by an acoustic expert. Alternatively, at least a provisional measurement should be performed with a phone app repeatedly. The provisional measurement serves only as a guideline for the selection of the room materials and their absorption coefficients in the acoustic calculator. Basically, any calculation without professional measurements of the initial situation is hypothetical!

Example:

Low frequencies are absorbed differently than high frequencies. Glass surfaces (Windows) or a normal office cabinet made of chipboard in different thicknesses, when you hit the resonance of the deep tones, can act for the low frequencies absorbing. However, a correct calculation is hardly possible due to the lack of measured data of the objects. On the basis of a measurement, special depth absorbers (vibrating resonators) need to be specifically set.

The calculations are based on measured data from objects and materials. Some of these are listed in the DIN 18041 exemplary. Others are taken from various sources for their correctness and conformity with the actual existing object or material there is no guarantee.

Area is important-small elements, for example, are simply overlooked by lower frequencies due to the long wavelength. Even with a-class absorbers, an adequately large absorbing surface is required in relation to the size of the room. In communication rooms, absorbers on the ceiling are sparingly and consciously dealt with. Here is more of a reflection desired!

Vital-Office therefore recommends the use of flexible acoustically effective products. Acoustic products that are divisible and easy to install and can be easily removed if necessary. This makes the investment in acoustically effective products more sustainable, more economical and more effective. For example, the VitAcoustic 3d frames. The VitAcoustic 3d frames have additional positive acoustic properties (among others on the lower frequencies) through the nested bamboo solid wood frames.

P.S. in the table "VO01" of the acoustic calculator, example values for a conference room and in VO02 for a club room are entered according to the adjacent 360 degree panorama picture.

Contributors to the Project acoustic calculator:

We are happy to share the original Excel with a contributing community similar to an open source project. Interested parties are kindly asked to contact [email protected] by e-mail. Further development steps are:

Extension and addition of the material and object database, in particular measured values of standard furnishings or entire exemplary facilities by room size.

Extension by further calculation formulas (currently only Sabine was chosen) and their comparative comparison.

Room acoustics solution for the ballroom of the youth school Waldhaus in Malsch

An echo makes the use of the festival hall of the youth welfare Waldhaus / Waldhausschule in Malsch almost impossible. The echo, or the sound reflections were so high that one could understand nothing more.

How should one get together and make music here? It was impossible!

But there is some help coming: the EnBW #MacherBus not only financially supports Waldhaus Jugendhilfe with the acquisition of new sound-absorbing elements, but the EnBW makers also undertake the attachment of the elements. With the new room acoustics measure the children of the Waldhausschule can use the hall again in peace and quiet.

Vital-Office also supported this project, supplied the vitAcoustic Frames for optimum sound absorption and led the assembly.

Eurocampus Lycee Francais - acoustic optimized school

A remarkable acoustic optimized school project. Through professional consultation by Delhom acoustique the classrooms and corridors have large sound absorbing surfaces. Besides the ceiling, at least 1 wall was made with vitAcoustic wall absorbers.

Nicely integrated in the overall bamboo design by gmp · International GmbH (Architekten von Gerkan, Marg und Partner).

The target was, that the kids can calm down and concentrate better in a quite and sound optimized acoustic environment. Whoever will visit this school will hear the difference and will want to sit down for a while and relax.

This project has been a challenge for our teams, because of the very very short delivery time for 3 floors, 30x classrooms with corridor and classroom inbuilt furniture, receptions desks, library, kitchen furniture, water dispenser, acoustic flower pots in PAC and much more.

Office can be optimized with the help of Feng Shui...

We have very intensely studied Feng Shui and found that many basic parts of Feng Shui are corresponding with ergonomics. The difference mainly is the kind of language used. While ergonomics is in scientific abstract language, Feng Shui describes complex psychological issues in an easy understandable picture like language.

To enhance collaboration also some structural methods of Feng Shui fit well to structure office.

The Vital-Office® Concept - For a better quality ...

The time that people spend working in the office is a regular part of life that has impacts on people’s health. The office is a working environment with many physical and psychological demands, challenges, and stresses which have a long-term effect on the person working in an office. These demands, challenges, and stresses in offices can cause psychological problems and physical ailments.

A meticulous and holistic design of the working environment, however, can promote creativeness and significantly contribute to the wellbeing of body and mind. This design also promotes productivity and innovation.

vitAcoustic colored and highly absorbent broadband...

Acoustics "beautiful" design with small and large-scale high-absorbing acoustic absorbers in 19 standard colors. This makes acoustic absorbers a design element - without it costing more. You design with original colored vitAcoustic sound-absorbing felt panels. 100% pollutant-free, as the fibers are already manufactured in the colors. It is NOT painted and not soaked in color. vitAcoustic is Oekotex 100, emission class E0, fire class B1 and environmentally friendly recyclable. For this purpose, light yet highly absorbent in class B according to DIN EN ISO 11654.

With these absorber elements, the vitAcoustic panels are notched onto an inwardly offset frame. The thickness of the frame determines the cavity to the reverberant surface and thus the frequency-dependent absorption according to data sheet tables. You can choose between 50, 100 and 150mm frame thickness to set the absorption levels for lower and higher tones according to your needs. The frames are made of light balsa wood, so that these wall absorbers are very light despite their size about 10-15kg. The frames, as with the 3d frames, have a groove inside which fits into the Exzender wall hooks so that the frames can be safely and yet easily inserted and removed.

Ordering information: If you want a size other than the standard dimensions, select the size in which fits your desired measure and enter in the box below the desired size. This item will NOT charge extra for special sizes.

New Work 2020 - Worktivity Concept Phase1...

In diesem Artikel stellen wir Ihnen Ideen für ein neues Nach-Covid Bürokonzept vor. Ausgangslage ist, dass in Zukunft voraussichtlich 30-50% von zu Hause im Homeoffice arbeiten. Damit sind die Arbeitsplätze im Büro nur teilweise besetzt, was die Attraktivität des Büros im Betrieb mindert und zu Leistungseinbusen führen kann. Ziel ist es daher die Attraktivität der Büros im Betrieb bei niedriger Belegung zu erhöhen und alternative Kollaborationsbereiche zu schaffen, die gleichzeitig Arbeitsmöglichkeiten für zeitweise Überbelegung im Büro bieten. Im Gegensatz zu den bekannten Besprechungsinseln und Relaxzonen möchten wir mit diesem Konzept aktive Ergonomie in den neuen "3rd places" favorisieren.

Aktive Ergonomie ist u.A. bekannt durch HAG Capisco und HAG bewegtes Sitzen. Artikel zu Hochsitzen und offener Sitzhaltung sind auch hier verfügbar: https://www.vital-office.de/burostuhle
Umgesetzt wurde dies in Form von sogenannten Ponys. Fahrbare gepolsterte Hocker in 2 Höhen und 2 verschiedenen Längen. Damit ist es möglich flexible und wandelbare Sitzlandschaften zu gestalten. Der Phantasie sind keine Grenzen gesetzt.

In Bezug auf Videopräsentationen, Telefonate und absolute Ruhe ist, es insbesondere in kleineren Büro, notwendig komplett abgeschirmte Raumeinheiten (Boxen) einzusetzen. Eine rein Schallabsorbierende Akustikmaßnahme im Raum reicht nicht aus, die nötige Ruhe in teilweise offene Kabinen zu bringen. Schallabsorption erhöht die Sprachverständlichkeit, was widerum die Konzentration minimiert. In diesem Planungskonzept wurden daher schallgedämmte Raum in Raum Boxen verplant. Zur Steigerung der Attraktivität der Kollaboration 3rd places wurden ebenfalls 2 Boxen eingeplant.

Der Kunde beabsichtigt ein neues Bürogebäude mit neuer Einrichtung zu möblieren. Dabei soll ein neues Konzept erarbeitet werden, das geeignet ist, den Bürobetrieb unter den, nach Covid19, neuen Bedingungen optimal zu gestalten.

Bambus-Office: Modern, Nachhaltig und (vor allem) ...

Sehr geehrte damen und Herren,

Massivholz Bambus Schreibtische - nur Chefsache oder geeignet für Standardarbeitsplätze?

Beides! Denn unser neu entwickeltes Bambus Office ist so außergewöhnlich, dass es repräsentiert, Charakterstärke und Persönlichkeit ausdrückt, jedoch auch so kostengünstig ist, dass es auch ohne weiteres als Überlegung für die Einrichtung eines gesamten Mitarbeiterbereichs in Frage kommen kann!

Und letztlich schließt das eine das andere nicht aus, kommen doch viele Firmenleiter zu dem Schluss, dass Kreativität und Erfolg eines Unternehmens insbesondere davon abhängt, dass die Arbeit eines jeden Mitarbeiters, unabhängig seiner Position, wichtig genommen und wertgeschätzt wird, um das Rad von positiven Ergebnissen im Unternehmen am Laufen zu halten.
