Ergonomic analysis of products

Use the AnyBody Modeling System to supplement and enhance conventional ergonomic assessment standards with biomechanical parameters as muscle activity and forces, joint reaction forces and metabolism. Understand the biomechanical factors involved in product use, accommodate the individuals who use them and identify the risk of musculoskeletal injuries.

Examples of ergonomic analysis of products

  • Ease of use analysis
  • Hand tool analysis
  • Human centered product optimization
  • Estimation of human health and safety parameters
  • Evaluation of ergonomic suitability
  • Identify significant product design parameters for human health and safety
