The ErgoKit I contains assessment equipment that a professional requires for performing ergonomic assessments. Over 20 pieces of equipment are organized in a custom, airline carry-on size case. This kit will help you perform analysis, design, and test steps on every ergonomic problem.
This complete ErgoKit I is designed to be portable, weighing approximately 35 lbs. with the equipment case. All delicate equipment is protected by a custom water-jet cut foam insert. Equipment is organized and quickly accessible during assessments. The foam cut-outs enable a visual inventory of the equipment, so it is easier to track what is in the case. This is a great tracking solution if you check out equipment to other employees. NIST calibrated tools in the Ergokit Standard are listed below.

The Ergokit can be customized in a number of ways to fit your consulting applications. Have questions or additional needs? Don't hesitate to call us for help. We have an expert staff trained by our own Certified Professional Ergonomist.
The Pocket Ergometer enables patients and employees to "hear" when they are stressing their muscles to help them learn to adopt better work postures. With sensors placed on appropriate muscles, tones sound in proportion to stress. Useful for ergonomic training and evaluation, including monitoring back stress levels during lifting tasks; monitoring wrist stress during repetitive assembly or keying operations, and evaluating proposed workstation layouts (hand position and reach requirements).
You can opt to add the Advanced Ergonomics Manual. The Advanced Ergonomics Manual is a comprehensive 700 page, hands-on manual for ergonomic analysis, design and planning on a CD in .pdf format. The manual is widely used by ergonomists or safety and health professionals in a variety of industries.

I obviously believe that the Ergokit is an essential piece of equipment for every Ergonomist like me. When we are at the job site we must have as many measurement tools as is feasible. The Ergokit makes it feasible to have a lot of measuring devices with you. If we don't have the device we need to measure a suspected risk, we tend to eyeball our analysis and say to management "I think this looks bad". As a profession we need to be very diligent about measuring force, posture, frequency, duration, etc and then using the appropriate risk assessment guidelines like NIOSH, Liberty Mutual Push/Pull, etc to back up our recommendations. Ergonomists who tell management "I think that is not ergonomic and you should spend money to fix it as a priority" without measuring the risk and presenting the prioritized analysis may be hurting the credibility of the profession of ergonomics. We should all measure when we assess and present our measurements. The Ergokit helps make it easy.
