You wouldn’t want to work in a building that’s not fire-safe, would you? Leaving your toaster strudel in the microwave too long becomes a big hazard.
The way health care is delivered in hospitals is changing. Yet every medical center must still meet the same standards of exceptional care.
Is standing at work healthier than sitting? Yes, but even employees with a sit-stand desk don’t want to be on their feet all day.
Today “motion control” implies automation, robotics, and electronics. But you’d be amazed what you can achieve when you combine old-fashioned mechanical engineering with a creativity-minded manufacturer.
Ergonomics isn’t just about what kind of ergonomic office products you’re using; ergonomics is about making life easier and relaxing your customers’ or employees’ bodies to be more comfortable. Whether at work, home, or a medical facility, you can always apply ergonomics.
If your office or classroom is spending a good portion of its day sitting at a desk and working on a computer, you probably already know how important it is to promote correct office ergonomics. A healthy work lifestyle reduces back, neck, and eye strain, as well as the risk of desk job-related injuries like carpal tunnel syndrome.
The benefits of better ergonomics are well documented and include wide-ranging health, safety, and comfort benefits. In medical environments, ergonomic furniture and devices are especially important because of the multitude of people they can impact -- and we’re not just talking about patients.
Complex hinge design is a staple of many high-end, high-performing products. The math required to make your lid, cover, or door work as advertised can be wildly different depending on your application.

Gas springs and their close cousins are abundant in many industries and applications. From overhead bins in airplanes to ATM machines, and from cargo doors to armored vehicle doors, you can find examples everywhere.
