Working environments can differ significantly and ergonomics in the workplace is not a one size fits all solution. Many of us spend the most of our working day in an office environment behind the desk on a laptop or desktop computer. Industrial workstations and specifically ergonomics in factories and manufacturing environments are often not addressed and optimised.
Optimising these industrial workstations are normally best achieved with doing an assessment of the various working environments within the area and defining the needs of the specific working stations. These assessments can be done by qualified Ergonomists who are trained to assess and optimise these working environments. There are, however, small changes which can be achieved with using certain ergonomic products, which can make a difference to the daily comfort and ergonomic correctness of the workers. One of these are industrial standing mats, also known as anti-fatigue mats, which assist with reducing the strain of standing for extended periods of time during the day. Task chairs such as operators’ chairs and height adjustable wobble chairs can also make a significant difference to the workers’ correctness and comfort.
Ergorest solutions are designed to improve ergonomics in areas such as computer usage, office work and industrial applications.
The Wobble sit-stand stool is height adjustable with a non-skid weighted base that makes it easy to move while seated. It allows you to distribute your body weight between your feet and bottom while sit standing at your desk.
