Introducing our Ergonomics Service

Ergonomics is a form of assistive technology which simply means the study of people and their working conditions. It is the broad term used for designing objects to correct posture or adapt to the shape of the human body.

Ergonomic products can help correct poor posture and can cover anything from an alternative mouse device to an ergonomic chair. They can also support individuals with a disability who need a different way of working. For example, a height adjustable desk is designed to support individuals with injuries and those who experience pain whilst working.

Individuals who may require ergonomic equipment include university students who carry out work at home. Without a supportive chair and desk, they will often experience pain and discomfort in their working environment. Employees in the workplace also often require ergonomic desks and chairs to help make working life more comfortable.

Working with education and workplace organisations of all sizes, iansyst provide a service which addresses four key areas:

Phase 1

Assessment

In the first phase, we will provide a professional assessment to ensure that your employee or student leads a comfortable and healthy working life. Our Ergonomic Assessors will carry out Ergonomic Assessments to examine an individuals working environment. During the assessment we will examine the individual’s keyboard, mouse device, display screen, software, furniture and working environment. Recommendations of any ergonomic equipment will be made where appropriate.

Phase 2

Implementation

After the assessment, we will provide recommendations of any ergonomic equipment that will help to improve the individual’s health and comfort in their working environment. Our comprehensive knowledge on disabilities and ergonomics means we are able to provide a vast range of ergonomic equipment including ergonomic chairs, adjustable desks, alternative mouse devices and keyboards.

 
Phase 3

Delivery and Setup
