BioFit to Showcase Newest Laboratory Seating Models, Integrated Technology at Pittcon 2017

BioFit Engineered Products, a globally recognized manufacturer of specialized ergonomic seating solutions, will demonstrate its latest technical seating for laboratories and proprietary digital technology today through March 9 at Pittcon 2017. Headlining the exhibit are designs from the company’s premier line − MVMT™ – featuring the QR Code Profile System. Other highlights include models from the bimos by BioFit Collection − Neon seating with an exclusive quick-change upholstery system and the Fin sit-stand − as well as product demonstrations and consultation on key differentiators of specialized workplace seating.

MVMT seating was developed for use in the laboratory, technology, healthcare and industrial sectors, and in standing desk applications. Jointly created with Studio Fifield of Milan, Italy, the line combines precision and durability with an aesthetic not normally associated with traditional laboratory and technical workspaces. Today, BioFit will introduce the MVMT QR Code Profile System − the first technology of its kind in the commercial furniture industry − to laboratory specifiers. The system provides customers with handheld, digital access to user information such as assembly and operational videos, warranty and reorder details and other tools correlating to the exact MVMT unit purchased, eliminating the need to keep track of printed instructions and forms as well as various website URLs.

BioFit President Ed Metzger explained: “When developing the MVMT line, we wanted the entire user experience to be on the technological forefront. This not only included the form and functionality of the chair itself, but things like providing users with the ability to configure and order a new chair and know how much time was left on their warranty – right from a direct link to a site on their smart phone.”

The bimos by BioFit Collection is a collaboration between European seating leader bimos and BioFit. At Pittcon, BioFit will introduce laboratory professionals to Neon – the top model of the line – and the Fin sit-stand. Neon was developed primarily for use in technology, laboratory, educational, healthcare and industrial workplaces. Its quick-change replaceable upholstery system enables use in multiple environments within the same facility or instantaneous repair in the event of upholstery damage. The swiveling Fin sit-stand is designed for tasks requiring prolonged periods of standing and enables users to decrease stress on their legs and feet.
