Home About Us Services

Our ergonomic product consulting services support the development of new products and prototypes, and evaluation of products already on the market. We are able to help clients:

  • Identify equipment and tool design benefits and deficiencies as used in the workplace
  • Develop user centered design requirements
  • Conduct product testing with sample from targeted population
  • Develop conceptual designs and modifications
  • Evaluate concepts to provide a quantitative trends for design selection and refinement
  • Compare designs, models, prototypes, products to identify the associated physical demands placed on the user
  • Develop content for print and web-based marketing materials

Methods and Techniques
We utilize various methods and techniques based on research and published best practices, including:

  • User observation and surveying
  • User centered product testing
  • Time study and work sampling methods
  • Ergonomic criteria development and critique
  • Biomechanical modeling
  • Physiological modeling
  • Repetitive lifting analysis
  • Anthropometry measurement and calculation
  • Direct measurement

Direct Measurement
When necessary, we utilize sophisticated equipment and techniques to quantify worker biofeedback (e.g., bodily responses) and workplace factors, including:

  • Electromyography (EMG): To identify muscle use, relative effort levels, and fatigue potential
  • Electrogoniometry: To identify postural deviations or non-neutral postures, and motion patterns
  • Heart rate monitoring: To identify heart rate elevations to estimate physiological demand or cost of work
  • Lumbar Motion Monitor (LMM): To identify 3D back postures and motion
  • Pressure mapping: To identify pressure and force levels, distributions, and patterns
  • Vibration/shock: To identify random oscillation or impulse magnitudes imposed on the hand-arm or whole body
  • Heat stress monitoring: To identify thermal environmental factors and worker exposure
  • Noise monitoring/dosimetry: To identify sound levels and exposure to the ambient environment or specific source
  • Illumination monitoring: To identify light levels and uniformity ratios relative to existing fixtures and layouts
