Work with Ergofox


ergofox GmbH was founded in Hamburg in 2020 as a spin-off of Fitbase GmbH with the aim of analyzing posture and playfully encouraging more movement.
Our core product is the 3D-based posture analysis for VDU workstations. With the help of a depth sensor, the ergofox records the posture at the computer workstation, analyzes it and gives feedback on the individual sitting behavior. The personal posture report visualizes the recorded postures and thus enables the creation of a long-term sitting profile for the office workplace for the first time.

In addition, we plan to develop exergames: movements are captured with a conventional web camera and transferred to an avatar in a browser-based game. A boring video training becomes an interactive, motivating exergame.

As part of our company development, we are looking for people to play the roles presented below:
