Tension and compression force measurement is essential to ensure ergonomics in the workplace and the testing of consumer products and devices. The basic principles of ergonomics are to ensure that the tasks being accomplished using the product, equipment, or device in question can be done without risk for musculoskeletal injuries. Worker safety and the development of safe products for consumers should be a top priority for manufacturers across many different industries. Ergonomics testing kits are used to perform a variety of tests to support the design, development, and continued assurance of ergonomics in equipment, machinery, products, and devices. The Mark-10 EK3 digital force gauge and dynamometer medical testing devices available at CSC Force Measurement are excellent choices for those looking to perform this type of ergonomic testing.
Why Ergonomics is Essential
While the study of ergonomics has been around for a long time, the popularity of this term and application of it in the workplace has become more well-known in the past three decades. Ergonomics testing has to do with the human element and how the user fits in with the things that they do, the objects that they use, and the surrounding environment. Physical stress reduction is the ultimate goal to prevent injury and other issues that can occur during activity. Dynamometer medical testing through the use of ergonomics testing kits is essential to ensure that the products, equipment, machinery, and devices being developed and marketed are safe and effective for human use. The Mark-10 EK3 digital force gauge kit offers both tension and compression force measurement for quick, accurate, and repeatable testing.
The term “ergonomics” and the way that it is applied can be quite broad. It can be used for safety testing a wide range of things from computer keyboards to smartphones, heavy-duty machinery controls to kitchen appliances, and just about anything else you can imagine. If people are going to be pushing, pulling, pressing, or using a product in any way, ergonomics testing kits are extremely valuable to determine safe use. Tension and compression force measurement is used for testing many different products. It is extremely important when new devices, products, and machines are being designed and developed for professional, industrial, commercial, or consumer end-users. CSC Force Measurement has a wide range of testing equipment available designed to meet the specifications and industry requirements of our customers.
