Health-conscious employees with higher productivity
In close collaboration with the “Health Enhancement Research Organization“
Active and healthy – Also at work
Personal well-being and a stress-free work atmosphere are important aspects for achieving success and productivity at the workplace. Stress is often not avoidable, but health and fitness are factors which can be controlled. A conscious diet and regular physical exercise not only improve personal productivity, but can also reduce the occurrence of diseases, such as diabetes and cardiovascular problems. Health-conscious employees especially pay attention to their meals and bring fruits, vegetables and whole-wheat products to the office. On top of that, nobody should neglect physical fitness. Employees are not restricted to work on their figure and fitness only before or after work; even at the workplace, every kind of movement counts. With the CaloriScan from Omron Healthcare, everybody can easily see how exactly activities in the office influence the personal energy consumption. Thanks to its sensitive 3-D sensor technology, the digital calorie counter precisely differentiates if the user is sitting or standing, if they are upright or hunched over, walking slowly or quickly, and also how often and how intensive they are physical active in a day. With these classifications, the handy device reliably calculates the resulting calorie consumption. Thereby, users can decide if they should take a little walk around the building after lunch. And with the additional movement and fresh air in the lungs, employees return to their desks more relaxed and productive.
