Workstations available on the market today are built around standard elements (workbenches, chairs, racks, etc.) and are not ergonomically optimized for the intended use. The modern person spends a lot of active and productive time sitting, and even nowadays a good old chair is most often used for this purpose, albeit with some modifications. Its present day design, of course, incorporates different lining and padding, adjustable head-rest and arm-rests, all these amenities helping the person spend several hours per day sitting a bit more comfortably.

Recently, a group of researchers involved in medical research for persons with spinal cord injury has decided to design and build a workstation which would most closely answer the needs of general computer users.
