Mayo Clinic’s Well Living Lab Studies Healthy Indoor Spaces

By Alyse Brunella

When it comes to maintaining our homes, offices and classrooms, we may think that just means keeping them clean and functional, but how often do we look beyond “tidiness 101” and consider other aspects that may be threatening our overall health? Things like mold and volatile organic compounds, or VOCs, can worsen the quality of air in indoor spaces. But can our homes and offices also improve wellness? Mayo Clinic and Delos collaborated to develop the Well Living Lab, a modular research lab at Mayo Clinic that can be reconfigured to simulate the indoor spaces we’re in every day. Results from this research will help designers and builders create homes and offices that respond to people’s biological rhythms and needs throughout the day. So maybe spending an entire day indoors isn’t so bad after all.

Bravo! It is so exciting to read about this study. I have a feeling the research team behind this project has a long successful history of proving what is a healthy way for us to live and work. This project can save quality of lives, health cost, government cost, and our environment. It will be refreshing to learn the results of this study, we can’t wait to read all about it!
