The definition of occuaptional ergonomics according to NIOSH is: “The science of fitting workplace conditions and job demands to the capabilities of the working population. Ergonomics is an approach or solution to deal with a number of problems—among them are work-related musculoskeletal disorders.”
The objective is to design the work to fit the worker. As a result work related strain can be reduced.
Good ergonomics e.g. a proper set up of your office work environment will improve your health. An important preventive aspect is the so called human-machine interface, which should be designed in a user friendly way.
Our professional advice starts with the basic but very important individual ergonomical advice for all employees and ends with complex ergonomical concepts for a whole building or office.
Computer input devices are being tested by us; especially in view of qualitative and practical aspects. New developments, such as dynamic workplaces equipped with a deskbike or treadmill are interesting preventive measures.
