Ergonomics – the perfect measure of things
At item, we don't see ergonomics at the work bench as an end in itself, but rather as the basis for sustainable high productivity and motivation. A working environment that has been designed according to ergonomic principles delivers a whole range of benefits:
- It protects the physical health of personnel and their capacity to work
- It reduces error rates by enabling fatigue-free working practices
- It improves throughput by eliminating unnecessary and uncomfortable movements
- It lowers costs by speeding up goods flows
Work bench systems from item satisfy two crucial requirements that have been highlighted by research into ergonomics. Firstly, they can be easily adjusted to suit different users. Because people come in different sizes and some are stronger than others, it is important that reaching distances and seating positions can be adapted to suit a range of physical characteristics. Secondly, different activities demand different types of support from work equipment. Thanks to flexible configuration options, a large number of accessories and ingenious details such as inclinable parts containers, our solutions enable users to create customised systems for the widest range of applications. Whatever your requirements – whether office workstations, mobile workshop carriages or interlinked production islands – work bench systems from item are the perfect solution.
