Success in today’s business world means keeping up with the rapid advances in technology. We recognize this need and want you to benefit from the very latest in ergonomics. Ergorest forearm rests are designed for both standard typewriter users and those working with the newest achievements in office technology. Ergorest will help prevent and reduce muscle fatigue and pain in the neck and shoulders.
The utilization of computers and information technology has changed the nature of office work substantially in the 1990s. Despite the great advances of high technology in the office, the physical working conditions have not changed essentially. Daily toil at the video display terminal is taking a toll on millions of clerical workers causing constant tension in the neck and shoulders and disturbing the blood circulation in the muscles. This results in muscular fatigue and pain.
The supporting role of your arms and shoulders can be taken over by movable forearm rests. Professor Osmo Hanninen and MD Teuvo Sihvonen from the University of Kuopio have studied the effects of Ergorest on shoulder load caused by terminal work. The measurements show that load in the neck and shoulders can effectively be diminished by using movable forearm rests. The muscular tension in the shoulders can be decreased down to one tenth of the normal level.
