John Smith. Personalized and posture care chair, on demand

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Today the technological development or the continuous acceleration of inventions and innovations has established the Fourth Industrial Revolution. This has given rise to an “in- telligent” factory, which produces objects that are not necessarily serialized but personalized to satisfy individual needs at low costs. From here arises the idea of configuring a customized chair, printed in 3D, medical (postural) and truly within the reach of all. The achievement of this objective involves the orchestration of a series of activities: a product configurator, a sof- tware for the management of physical parameters, thanks to the collaboration of osteopathics physiotherapists; an e-commerce site, for the transition from virtual to real; a 3D printing service network in the area where the work is supposed to be done, with its transport system (km 0); a monitoring of all the printed chairs, which allows their recovery, once their function of use has been exhausted, to recycle them within an eco-sustainable (re)productive system (cradle to cradle).
