What is Ergonomics?

Ergonomics (or human factors) is the scientific discipline concerned with the understanding of the interactions among human and other elements of a system, and the profession that applies theory, principles, data and methods to design in order to optimize human well-being and overall system performance.” International Ergonomics Association Executive Council, August 2000

Where do I begin?

LOWER BACK PAIN

Are you experiencing lower back pain while working? Having a supportive and ergonomic chair can help eliminate this pain. The curve of the chair's back or additional lumbar support can be the solution. Check out these products that can help in improving your posture and reducing back pain.

  • Lumbar Support Cushions
  • Lumbar Feature on Office Chairs

WRIST PAIN

Monotonous mouse and keyboard movement can cause strain and pain. Ergonomic keyboard and mouse can help with ensuring neutral posture is maintained especially when you are using your computer for long periods. Arm supports can also ease strain to wrist, arm, and shoulder while mousing.

  • Ergonomic Mouse
  • Arm Support

NECK PAIN

Poor posture is one of the causes for neck pain. Your gaze should be at the top piece of the monitor. If you refer to documents frequently, you can benefit from using a document holder as it will reduce repetitive neck movements. The goal is to keep your neck in a neutral position and bringing your documents, laptop or monitors to the right eye level.
