Developed for a client with extreme lower back and neck pain, the supine workstation provides a variety of comfortable work positions through the ability to change positions during the day.  Through the properly balanced design, the user has to simply give a gentle push or pull on the arm rests to change positions.  Alan, along with the design team at the Center for Assistive Technology and Environmental Access, developed the workstation as a pre-production prototype to explore ideas around workstation comfort. 

The workstation was exhibited at the Smithsonian's Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum 1998 "Unlimited By Design" Exhibition. The workstation was also awarded Georgia Tech Record of Invention #2066 for its uniqueness and creativity.
