GEWOS is a BMBF-funded R&D-project in the field Ambient Assisted Living with a total cost volume of nearly 3.6 Million €. Besides the Chair for Building Realization and Robotics, other research and industry partners participate the consortium: EnOcean GmbH, Fraunhofer IIS, ISA Informationssysteme GmbH, Innovationsmanufaktur, SOPHIA GmbH and another TUM Chair of TUM’s Sports Faculty. The project’s duration is 3 years (April 2010 – April 2013) and the two TUM Chairs build the scientific back-bone of the Consortium. Main objective of the consortium is to develop a chair (seat) that is equipped with invisible but sophisticated sensor technology that measures a multitude of user vital signs. The following sensor systems are embedded:

  •  ECG Module: retrieves the heart rate variability
  •  SPO2 Module: monitors blood pressure and oxygen saturation of the blood via infrared
  • Module for measuring activity: sensor system for measuring activity of the user on the chair and in the vicinity of the chair
  • Module for weight measurement: measures weight and weight distribution on the chair

This inconspicuously and at first glance invisibly integrated sensor modules form the basis for professional activity and sports concepts, health assistance, business and service concepts that are delivered as “services” through the chair and its interface to the users, which through the sensor systems actually becomes part of the system. Therefore GEWOS considers the sensor chair as a socio-technical system, consisting of an innovative chair (with sensor-actor-systems), an internet-based platform, an interface component, and further interaction elements and matching services. By encouraging movement and supporting further constitutional methods, this system serves as a health promotion, embedded in the physical and emotional surrounding of the user.
