Active ergonomics involves performing physical exercises adapted to the requirements of the workplace as a strategy to prevent musculoskeletal disorders. The fitwork project focused on the development of a good practice manual, which helps occupational health professionals to implement physical activity programs in the workplace.
La ergonomía activa propone la realización de ejercicios físicos adaptados a las demandas del puesto de trabajo, como estrategia para prevenir los trastornos músculo-esqueléticos.
El proyecto fitwork se ha centrado en la elaboración de un manual de buenas prácticas, que ayude a los profesionales de la salud laboral a implantar programas de actividad física en el puesto de trabajo.
The Instituto de Biomecánica (IBV) has carried out a study that quantifies the precision and validity of 3D foot scanning technology using a smartphone, as developed by the IBV, compared with traditional methodologies such as manual measurements and other commercial solutions currently on the market. The results confirm that the IBV technology is as precise as the reference solution, much more reliable than manual measurements performed by an expert, and offers great opportunities for application in economic sectors where the possibility of scanning anywhere and at low cost are important for deployment and scalability.
The ErgoCheck module of the Ego/IBV program allows in a qualitative and simple way, the initial identification of the ergonomic and psychosocial risk factors that exist in a company, workstation or task.
An ErgoCheck analysis facilitates initial detection, which leads to detailed assessments, offering initial recommendations to address corrective measures.
