First conceptualized by Knox Center founder Jim Knox and implemented in 2004, ErgoPods were wheelchair-accessible workstations designed to accommodate users who need to sit, stand, recline or adjust for extended periods.

The ErgoPods were retired in August of 2013, replaced by height-adjustable tables in the Campus Computing Sites. But in their day, the ErgoPods served their audiences well.

Here's a look at their configuration specs:
