Ergonomic Sit-Stand Workstations Promote Health and Safety
By Amanda Ciccatelli, TMCnet Web Editor
Ergonomics is the science of ensuring that a person’s productivity is maximized through the use of equipment specially designed to match their mental and physical needs. In other words, ergonomics is all about how the human body interacts with your work and environment. So, incorporating ergonomics into your office will improve your productivity, comfort and even prevent stress and injury.
Ergonomists understand the huge productivity benefits associated with ergonomic office furniture and tools, but there are many business leaders who struggle with the usual high cost it takes to implement new ergonomic programs in their companies.
Reducing barriers of entry to sit-stand computing for ergonomists, wellness and human resources managers, Ergotron, Inc. will show its WorkFit portfolio of sit-stand workspace solutions at the upcoming ErgoExpo 2012. The company’s WorkFit portfolio helps businesses uphold ergonomic standards while also influencing active work routines not enabled by sedentary workspaces.
"Ergonomic solutions shouldn't be solely focused on the people that are hurting. Research shows that everyone benefits from standing more, so we want it to be feasible for an entire workforce," said Pete Segar, president, Ergotron branded product, in a statement.
For 30 years, Ergotron, a global manufacturer of digital display mounting, furniture and mobility products, has been improving the human interface with digital displays. Its history of innovation shows through its more than 70 patents and growing portfolio of brands for computer monitors, notebooks, tablets, flat panel displays and TVs.
Ergotron sit-stand workstations maintain the science of ergonomics, while offering height-adjustable products at a favorable price point, including many solutions priced under $500. With Ergotron's WorkFit, users have a means to create a healthier environment for employees.
"You won't find another product with such fast, easy adjustability at our price point. We're making ergonomic sit-stand workstations affordable to the masses,” Segar continued.
Ergotron sit-stand workstations provide fluid sit-to-stand functionality without the need for complex electrical systems, giving businesses a variety of traditional solutions that are easy to install and repurpose across changing workscapes.
Today, Ergotron is helping define sit-stand ergonomics alongside the ergonomic community. Its products incorporate patented CF lift and pivot motion technology to achieve less effort and more ergonomic motion for a healthier user experience.
