Emerging Ergopod


Student Anne Chi tries out an Ergopod, a new ergonomically adjustable workstation developed by U-M’s Adaptive Technology Computing Site (ATCS) and Ergoquest Inc. of Grand Rapids. Each Ergopod is equipped with a PC and a Macintosh, accessibility software, an ergonomic keyboard, trackball, closed-circuit TV, scanner, and headset. It is designed primarily for people with disabilities or special ergonomic needs. These workstations soon will be located in selected Information Technology Central Services campus computing sites. The Ergopod and other projects will be on display noon-1:30 Oct. 29 in the Kuenzel Room of the Michigan Union, as part of Investing in Ability events. (Photo by Paul Jaronski, U-M Photo Services)
