Reminder function tells you when to change posture at your work desk

Get the most out of your height-adjustable desk: DPG desk panels by LINAK include intuitive reminder functions that combine software and human intuition.

Founded on modern behavioural science, we designed our DPG desk panel series to motivate users to use their height-adjustable desks more. By appealing to the human instinct of seeking easy reward, the advanced series of our DPG desk panels makes use of colours to naturally indicate when it is time to stand.

Integrated coloured LED Reminder function 
The intuitive reminder function is integrated in three of our four DPG desk panel models. The reminder function is made either of an LED lightstrip or a simple LED diode that indicates the current desk usage status. It changes its colour when it is time for the user to change posture – from sitting to standing. The idea behind the integration of coloured lights is to offer desk users an easy understandable tool that motivates them to develop healthy standing habits.

When the green light turns to orange, it is time to move
Appealing to our human intuitive colour association, DPG desk panels with reminders use green and orange colours: a soft tone of green light indicates when the user does not need to move. When the “sit interval” is about to end, this green light will turn into a more pulsating orange tone – a colour which intuitively signals us to pay attention. 
To ensure that the reminder function suits the individual demands of its user, desk users can either use the pre-configured intervals or set up their own intervals.

Combine your DPG Reminder with the LINAK Desk Control™ App 
The advanced DPG desk panel models (DPG1C, DPG1B and DPG1M) are compatible with the LINAK Desk Control App for your mobile device as they feature Bluetooth® wireless technology. You will then not only be reminded to move by your DPG, but you will also receive a notification and a reminding buzz on your mobile device.
DPG desk panels give office desk users a truly great work set for developing healthy working habits. This is what we call designed to shape behaviour.
