What does Ergonomics Certification Mean?
A product that has received certification provides measurable ergonomic benefits to the anticipated users by improving comfort and fit and by minimizing the risk factors that may contribute to the development of ergonomic injuries.
How is Certification Determined?
Certification is based on a series of tests developed specifically for a product family for the purpose of quantifying the ergonomic factors associated with the design. To obtain certification it must be evident that the product or equipment meets or exceeds threshold criteria for approval. These criteria are derived from published literature & standards and/or adhere to the fundamental principles of ergonomics and biomechanics. Testing includes a combination of objective and subjective factors to quantify the ergonomics effects on actual users. Subjective results must be obtained from experience, non-biased users of the product family.
