Ergonomic Examination of Workplaces
We offer comprehensive solutions for holistic, quantitative and qualitative workplace analyzes. With the help of small EMG and inertial sensors, whole-body movements can be analyzed and stresses of the musculoskeletal system can be detected. In addition to the use of labor-science studies, our biomechanical measuring systems are also used directly in the industrial environment. Thanks to state-of-the-art wireless technology, the worker is completely free to move during the measurement and can follow his or her usual work.
Electromyographic measurements can quantify psycho-physiological stresses and help to identify increased muscle tension (e.g., shoulder, trapezius muscle) caused by forced posture or stress. The results of EMG diagnostics help to take appropriate measures. Targeted biofeedback helps to relax tense muscles and return to a natural posture. The EMG measurement is a useful tool to assess workflows regarding their physical stress and to validate derived workplace transformations (e.g., the use of lifting aids). Thanks to the mobile individual components, the measurements can be taken directly on the spot at the existing workplace.
Ergonomic Examination of Products
The interaction between human and product plays an increasingly important role. The main focus is often on an ergonomic design. Electromyographic analysis enable products to be tested and evaluated for their ergonomics and their impact on humans. The goal in product development is the design of user-friendly consumer goods, taking into account anthropometric and system-economic aspects. EMG analysis can help to minimize stresses of the article on the musculoskeletal system.
