Ergonomics Research Technologies

ETC specializes in the application of measurement based technologies to assess the human response associated with product, tool or equipment designs. The results of these analyses are used to improve the product, tool or equipment for the purpose of enhancing user comfort and efficiency while reducing fatigue potential, injury risk and liabilities.

ETC maintains a fully equipped biomechanics research laboratory at it's home office in Syosset New York.The technologies and methods that we commonly apply include gathering objective measurement data, subjective comfort surveys, statistical analysis (correlation and significance), literature and research reviews.

Our laboratory capabilities are often used for:

  • product benchmarking

  • analyzing ergonomic effects of existing products and equipment

  • new product, tool or equipment design.
