Ergonomics. This fairly new hot topic is generally misunderstood. Ergonomics is a science that helps us understand and design an optimal work environment to achieve comfort, productivity and health.
With a few simple adjustments to your workstation you can reduce stress on your body due to working in wrong positions for long periods of time.
Here at Ergodirect.com we would like to spread awareness that working in the incorrect position for an extended period of time over many years can cause serious health issues.
Wikipedia defines Ergonomics as “the study of designing equipment and devices that fit the human body, its movements, and its cognitive abilities.”
IEA, the International Ergonomics Association, defines ergonomics as “the scientific discipline concerned with the understanding of the interactions among humans and other elements of a system, and the profession that applies theoretical principles, data and methods to design in order to optimize human well-being and overall system.”
Ergodirect believes that ergonomics can be defined as a science that helps you adjust your environment to the perfect comfortable position for your body.
Unfortunately, a majority of existing workstations do not meet ergonomic standards. Stationary desks or chairs aren’t able to accommodate the individuals and will not conform to their unique height and shape.
Becoming ergonomically correct is not complicated. Using Adjustable Sit-Stand Workstations, Ergonomic Office Chairs, Adjustable Keyboard Trays, Monitor Arms, even iPad Mounts, it has become easier and easier to attain healthy work-style.
