1 Comfortable, adjustable, ergonomically designed furniture

2  er·go·nom·ics “ an applied science concerned with designing and arranging things people use so that the people and things interact most efficiently and safely -- called also human engineering ”

3 Things to consider:  Desk  Computer  Keyboard trays and mechanisms  Document holders

4 WORKSTATION “ Ergonomic work station set-up: alignment of keyboard, document and monitor precludes dangerous twisting and minimizes the risk of associated injuries.”

5 Tables and Desks Centennial Line Adjustable Workstation File cabinets Bookcases

6 E-class JORO tables -electric and manual adjustability allows for mobility and a variety of sitting/standing positions

7 Primary Work Stations are available as right or left handed stations electric, crank or incremental adjustment. By JORO Centennial Adjustable Workstations

8 Sitting Posture

9 7635 arm has a 5,5". Articulating keyboard arms with lever less height adjustment and T-handle tilt. No knobs to tighten or loosen. Cobra Arm keyboard mechanism fits any keyboard tray. Easily adjustable; just lift keyboard platform, move to desired position and release. Slim profile maximizes knee space. Teflon glide and tilt adjustment at neutral position. Spring assisted height adjustment. Universal tray, will fit to all platforms. 7635 arm for keyboard Cobra Arm keyboard mechanism 7438-21 keyboard arm

10 ISE HPD17F Corner keyboard Straight keyboard platform IISE HPD17F Corner keyboard platform with mouse forward The solution for that corner workstation. Comes with palm rest. Choose any mechanism to go with this platform CCorner makers transform a L- shaped desk into a corner workstation by attaching a platform to the 90 degree corner. Requires a keyboard platform and articulating mechanism to complete this transformation. ISE HP-28F Mouse Forward Keyboard platform Corner Maker

11  At the keyboard, wrists should be elevated, hands should not be up at a positive angle  carpel tunnel  Keyboard with tray should be pulled in so your bicep and forearm are perpendicular, no reaching as this will cause strain on shoulders

12 For the prevention of carpal tunnel syndrome are achieved when the bottom of the Ergo-rest arm pads are positioned level with the lowest keys of the keyboard. Ergo Articulating Arm Rests

13  Clear mouse bridge- for bringing your mouse closer, avoid reaching, prevent shoulder and arm strain  Wrist rests for keyboard and mouse- elevate wrists so they are at a negative angle -prevention of carpel tunnel

16  “musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs)...constitute the largest job-related illness and injury problem in the U.S. today.  Contact stress affects the soft tissue on the fingers, palms, forearms, thighs, shins and feet. This contact may inhibit blood flow, tendon and muscle movement and nerve function." Musculoskeletal Disorder

17 A negative slope keyboard in a lowered position keeps wrists straight (neutral posture), opens up elbow angles and hip angles, keeps shoulders neutral and encourages recline, which reduces stress on the spine. Proper Sitting Position

18 Problems 1. Neck tension, tightness, upper back and shoulder discomfort -Hands and arms not supported while typing 2. Hand, wrist and lower arm discomfort. The wrist is deviated in an unnatural position. 3. Lower back pain discomfort -Lumbar curvature is not being maintained and supported. 4. Thigh discomfort. -Too much pressure on the thigh because chair is too high and legs are dangling. Workplace Problems and Solutions Solutions 1.For typing tasks, adjust the armrests to the correct height and angle to support the weight of the arms and use palm rest or wrist rest. 2.Set the keyboard and/or calculator to produce a neutral wrist position. 3. Bring backrest closer by tilting forward, and adjust height of lumbar curvature of backrest. It should be slightly above the pelvis to provide support in the lumbar region (lower back). 4. Lower chair height so that feet are supporting feet and lower legs only.

19 Seat Height Adjustability feet to be flat on the ground to avoid stress on your hips and lower back Arm Height Keep forearm at right angles to your shoulders This will keep your shoulders and neck muscles relaxed Arm Width Increase distance between seat cushion and arm. For optimum comfort and support, your arms should rest at shoulder width Adjustability

20 The height of the back can be individually adjusted for lumbar support. The independent back angle adjustment allows the users to adjust backrest angle while seated and than release to lock on desired position. By sliding the seat cushion forward or backward; the support for the legs can be individually adjusted. Adjustability Con’t

22  Knee tilt mechanism: this gives a chair the ability to free float smoothly within a wide range  The fulcrum for the rocking mechanism is near the knees to allow for further forward motion Multi-tilt mechanism: fulcrum in the middle creates less range -there is an extra lever to angle the seat pan further Knee tilt Multi-tilt

23  Features for knee tilt: 1. Back pan tilt 2. Raising/lowering chair 3. Rocking the chair 1 2 3
