Ergonomics is concerned with the ‘fit’ between the user, equipment and their environment.
Ergonomic design is intended to help protect and improve health and productivity. Good ergonomic design in the workplace is vital to minimise the risk of injuries such as back pain and RSI, frustration and stress, and associated costs due to sick leave and poor productivity.
Ergonomic design on its own can't solve all problems. The greatest ergonomic chair in the world, allied with a sit-stand desk and ergonomic keyboard and mouse, are pointless expenses if their user isn't fully informed and motivated to use them correctly.
Too often ergonomic furniture and aids are seen as a quick and easy solution to someone suffering back pain, RSI or other health problems. The result: an expensive ergonomic chair and workstation set-up being used by someone sitting in their same old posture, and adopting the same old working patterns, that caused their problem in the first place!
Postureminder helps computer users break out of those old habits and make lasting improvements to how they work. It can be used to help users make best use of their chair, set up their workstation for safe and healthy working, and adopt working patterns that will protect their health AND improve their productivity.
It's a win-win solution that can save employees from unnecessary pain and discomfort, and employers from wasting money on ergonomic furniture and equipment that's not being used properly.
