Though it cannot be said with certainty that such workers are more productive, tentative evidence suggest that this may well be the case. A useful service of a smart office or work environment is to contribute to the health and well-being of those that inhabit such spaces. One practical approach to this is to monitor the exercise that employees engage in during the day, and using this as a basis, motivate them to engage in further physical activity. In this paper, issues relating to monitoring employee physical activity are explored.||Funding Details:||Science Foundation Ireland||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Publisher:||IOS Press||Copyright (published version):||2009 The authors and IOS Press||Keywords:||Pervasive health; Exercise||Subject LCSH:||Exercise--Testing
