With a degree in Kinesiology specializing in sports medicine, CoreChair CEO and Founder Patrick Harrison has a passion for understanding what the human body needs. The emerging awareness on the perils of sedentary lifestyle coupled with the musculoskeletal damage incurred by desk jockeys, Harrison was inspired by the widespread prevalence of back pain, the negative effects of sedentary lifestyles and the trend towards exercise balls in the office. The amount of static sitting we do in a day contributes to obesity, disease, and back pain. Alternative solutions, such as exercise balls and standing desks were introduced in the absence of sound research and provide little opportunity for physical activity and adequate back support.
The design of the CoreChair optimizes sitting posture and encourages movement in all directions and to 14 degrees; enhancing joint mobilization of the hips, pelvis, and spine; increasing blood flow and circulation and calorie expenditure. It has been research Validated as well as NEAT and BIFMA-ANSI certified.

Product : CAPTIV
In collaboration with INRS (French National Institute for Research and Safety), TEA has developed CAPTIV, an innovative data acquisition system for the synchronization of video sequences together with visual observations and sensors’ measurements. CAPTIV is a simple, flexible and user-friendly solution: a PC (notebook or other) and a DV camcorder are sufficient for implementing the system. CAPTIV also enables the processing of all saved data. Ranging from a simple pre-diagnosis tool to a complete scientific investigative and research solution, CAPTIV allows for deployment in a large variety of fields where measurements and/or observations are key requirements. CAPTIV illustrates the move towards modern ergonomics in the context of an active and scientific approach. CAPTIV is interfaced with Eye tracking systems, thus enabling the synchronous acquisition of eye movements’ data together with physiological measurements and video sequences.
CAPTIV is available worldwide through TEA’s sales network.
Also TEA distributes in France, Europe and Canada solutions for Motion Analysis and Eye-Head tracking.
