Weekly Round Up 25th September

Welcome back to our Weekly Round Up Blog where this week we'll be catching up on our team's antics and also our Smart Chair's new gadget fame.

Wrekin Walk

Those of you from the Shropshire area will know of The Wrekin and those who aren't will probably have seen it mentioned more than once in our previous blog posts. Well now it's finally time to reveal the photos of what we got up to for our Move Week activity.

But before we let you scroll down and laugh at our team stomping up a windy hill, we thought we'd give you a quick recap about why we were doing this.

Move Week was happening all across Europe between the 7th and 30th September as part of the Now We Move campaign. The objective was to get people up and moving around, to promote the benefits of being active and participating regularly in sport and other physical activities.

At Nomique we understand the importance of movement during the work day as well as outside of the workplace and we wanted to encourage others to improve their wellbeing by showing them that we get active too. So enjoy all a selection of our best and funniest photos...

Setting off from the bottom through the trees, already sporting our bright orange Move Week tees.

It didn't take long until the views starting looking good and we had to stop to take some photos.

Of course we had to take some photographs of the monuments at the top to prove that we made it.

Between selfies, we still answered the phone, work is never far away, even up a hill.

And finally a team shot, so orange I'm sure we could be seen for miles and miles away.

Well this year we marched up The Wrekin and so next year we plan on doing something active again. We want to go bigger and better and we welcome you to comment your ideas below.

Gadget Show: "The Axia Smart Chair is fighting crime..."

The online addition to the gadget show has been designed to get viewers more involved with the world’s best gadgets. In the first episode Jason and Ortis are in direct competition with a master detective to figure out who out of three suspects committed car theft.

The two use lots of high end tech to see if they can discover the truth from the lies. The first of those products to take the stage is the Axia Smart Chair. They used it to see how comfortable their potential criminals were sitting.

One of the suspects known as Jack had continuous good posture throughout the inquisition, shown by the continuous green lights on the Smart Chair as well as the laptop it had been connected to.

The other two suspects were moving around a lot more which showed Jason and Ortis how uncomfortable they were with the questions.

Although they did not convict the right criminal, neither did the detective, making this first “Versus” episode a draw. However the tech did allow them to figure out who was innocent and also who had good posture.

You might not need the Axia Smart Chair for serious high tech investigations but whatever your day
 to day job it will benefit your posture and wellbeing. If you are interested in finding out more about this product, including where to buy it then please visit our website or give us a call on 01952 585828
