So you’ve read up on the benefits of ergonomic office products. You’ve heard rave reviews about the top ergonomic office chairs, ergonomic computer solutions (i.e. advanced keyboard mechanisms and adjustable monitor arms), and desktop components for training desks.
If your goal is to reduce your carbon footprint, then investing in a tiny home is the way to go. This, along with lower heating and electricity costs, mean you can reduce your impact on the environment around you.
Motion control has made a lot of tasks easier in a number of industries. New products incorporate counterbalance or spring-assist hinges to provide a new, improved solution to an old or long-standing problem. Weber Knapp offers a series of case studies to provide you with a better idea of the potential solutions to any hinge-related problems you may encounter.
Motion and perceived quality are closely linked. When a lid, cover, or door moves smoothly with just the “right” amount of effort, users can tell it's a high quality product.
Today’s world has seen new priorities come to light in response to the global pandemic. One result of people being required to stay home for long periods of time is that they stopped to evaluate their living space. For some, that space presented issues. If it was less than ideal, a makeover went into action.
Ergonomics is a recognized factor in employee health, productivity and workplace safety. Facilities that do not budget for and pay attention to ergonomics see employees with repetitive stress injuries, distracted from their work, and less than thrilled to be there.
Workers deal with a lot of equipment and applications that can cause trauma to their hands. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, approximately 102,350 total hand injuries occurred in 2020.
At first glance, you might suspect that the only place you’re going to see a Vectis™ Counterbalance is in an industrial setting, perhaps mounted on an enormous machine shield, or maybe some type of oversize industrial tank lid.
We’ve probably all experienced a stiff neck or a sore back from sitting all day, and it’s no fun. With proper ergonomics, however, such ailments can often be alleviated.
Good ergonomics in the workplace, will enhance employee comfort and increase productivity. Ergonomics is essentially the science of adapting a job or position to specifically fit the worker - and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has taken on a leading role in helping promote and advocate for such environments.
In this post, we'll take a closer look at OSHA's ergonomics guidelines for a healthy workplace:
Hinge installation does not have to be the same as it was decades ago. In fact, more than 10 decades of mechanical motion control research and engineering design efforts have led to the introduction of a new line of hinges that provide precise control and reliable results every time you open the lid they are installed to manage.
