  • Its all about Ergonomics

    The goal of Ergonomics is to provide maximum productivity with minimal cost relating to the physiological state or health of the worker.

    The goal for the design of workplaces is to design for as many people as possible without compromising on safety, health and comfort.

    Poor posture and movement can contribute to local mechanical stress on the muscles, ligaments and joints, resulting in complaints of the neck, back, shoulder, wrist and other parts of the musculoskeletal system. This has a direct bearing on performance, and ultimately on the bottom line.
