October is ergonomics month…

It’s National Ergonomics month, something groups like the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society take pretty seriously. We do too. It’s part of our history and it’s part of our commitment to you, to create solutions that promote healthier, more productive environments for you to do what you do best…work, play, create.

Throughout the month we will be offering 20 ErgoTIPS for a more ergonomic and healthier workstyle. Our first comes courtesy of our web team.

ErgoTIP #1: Give yourself a Workspace Assessment

Healthy computing starts with awareness. Use our questionnaire to evaluate the ergo-fitness of your current set-up at Assessment.ergotron.com.

We wish you many ergonomic moments in the month ahead! Your back, and neck and wrists may thank you for it too.

 

Sit vs. Stand Webinar – June 5, 2013

Sit v Stand

Join Ergotron’s Wendy McCubbin, aka @workfitwendy and Sr. Manager, Worksite Wellness, and Humantech’s Christy Lotz, Managing Consultant and Ergonomics Engineer, on Wednesday, June 5, for this complimentary webinar:

Sit vs. Stand: What’s the Best Ergonomic Design?

Ergotron is sponsoring this Humantech webinar, which tackles the question: “To sit, or not to sit?” Does one scenario offer better ergonomics over the other?  Since June also happens to be National Employee Wellness Month, it is fitting to discuss a topic that has been debated across all industries—from industrial, to laboratory, to office environments. Prolonged sitting promotes a lack of whole-body muscle movement while prolonged standing leads to fatigue and swelling in the legs. With obvious pros and cons for both, it is difficult to take a stand against one or the other.

This free, 45-minute webinar will teach you how and when to design for appropriate seated and standing workstations based on critical design features and ergonomic design guidelines.

Sign up for this popular event! It is being offered at 11:00 AM ET and 2:00 PM ET but space is filling up fast so REGISTER today.
