Ergonomics

Musculoskeletal disorder, which may affect muscles, tendons, joints, ligaments, and nerves, can be counted among the main reasons for sick leave in industrialized countries. Computer workstations are often at the top of one’s mind, but also microscope workstations carry the risk of straining the backs and necks of their users. Ergonomic design of workstations helps ease physical stress and contributes to well-being at the workspace – a valuable asset, considering how much time of day people spend there! And people who feel well at their microscopes are more content, more productive, and stay home ill less often – this applies to microscope applications in industry such as quality control as well as surgical applications during neurosurgical and ophthalmological procedures.
