Ergonomics and Human Factors

Human Factors Assesment

Human Factors and Ergonomics are all around us! Any time you have engineered a product, process, or system to work more efficiently with humans, you have practiced human factors. The main goal is to reduce human error, increase productivity, and enhance safety and comfort by designing or arranging workplaces, products, and systems to fit the people who use them.

Noraxon Human Factors & Ergonomics

Noraxon technology makes it easier to take measurements in real work environments with minimal time, less discomfort, and less expense along the way. This means that Ergonomists can measure the user experience of ergonomic design in everyday work locations and routines, rather than creating a simulation in the lab. Noraxon’s unified software makes it easy for users to integrate various recording devices to fit unique applications such as: testing and researching exoskeletons, training and simulation, health/safety, TAKT time reduction, workstation optimization, biomechanics/ergonomics research, quality control, and product design.

Suggested Hardware

Using Noraxon’s multi-device software platform, users are able to simultaneously collect multiple types of biomechanical data from various hardware devices. All of the integrated devices are automatically synchronized and the easily accessible data allows for a quick but comprehensive understanding of how the human body is moving and what the contributing factors are. Our unified software makes it easy for users to integrate a variety of recording devices to fit any budget or unique application.

Customizable Reports for Ergonomics & Human Factors.

Noraxon provides users with customizable reports to highlight the key results of data collection in a quick and efficient way.
